24% Funkey Extra 300, Direct drive 20x13

Hi

Just wanted to show my new Extra 300L... the most powerful aerobatic epowerd plane in Sweden! the mighty Plettenberg motor provides the same power as a 5HP IC engine, driving a RF 20x13 without any problem!!

FK 24%Extra 300L
Span 1850mm (73")
UAW 6000g

Plettenberg Brushless 370/40/A3 2,5 Kilowatt
APC E 18x10 - RF 20x13 carbon
30xZapped RC2400 (47volts of the charger )

4xHS225MG + 1xHS645MG
Schulze Rx
4x700AAA

This big bird flies 6 powerful aerobatic, or 10min mild aerobatic (no big loops) maybe the 3000HVs will break the 15min barrier.

Awsome in knifedge!! making knifedge passes at only 2meters is very impressive!

Custom carbon LG is to be fitted -100g (-3,5oz)

I hope to se more of this kind of E-powerd planes in the future!

Cheers,

Very nice Henket. I'd like to see more of these large aerobatic birds done on this side of the pond also.

glad you all like it!


Andreas!

Yes it hovers, but the controll surfaces are to small to tourqeroll it... maybe it will work with better skills (running G2 like hell )

I´m getting a Menz 21x6 to hover @ less amps... the flight time kind of just dissapears when hoverong


I´ll try to fix a video in the weekend.

Others are getting there!

Not sure if anything that size would fit in my little wagon, maybe I'll have to stick with my little 20 cell birds Maybe if I only took one model and built it with plug-in wings...

Whatever - nice model Henket. I wouldn't worry about hovering - fly it "scale fashion" instead.

Very nice, Henket!

At 189.6 watts/lb, I'll bet it does a pretty good "Rocket" impression!

Greg!

I saw your Extra in an erlier thread! looks nice too!

My hobby dealer asked if I wanted to try the new Funkey 30 sized Extra, guess if he was surprised when I called back and orderd three 120sized Extras

He flies the little extra useing geard HP290 and 12x2400.

Andre!

It hovers at 95% throttle with 18x10 prop, next I´ll try a 21-22x6... this motor does´t need to be geard, it already delivers a massive 2Nm tourqe! more than a common 60starter motor!!
