So has anybody actually flown their Extra yet? I'm looking for some flight reports.

Mine's pretty close, even if I didn't receive the main gear or pushrods. Fortunately, I had some wire gear from my Samba that fits pretty well (not perfect, but it works). All that's left are servos and a crystal for my Rx. Hopefully the LHS will have channel 43 in stock. Otherwise, I'll have to swap a crystal between a couple planes.

so far kevin is the only non beta to post a flight report, not all that detailed though. paul has my motor in the mail and i hope he's including the landing gear wire with it so we should see a few more reports soon

We have shipping all missing items and new kits will be complete. We are still barred with orders but we are working very hard to keep this in-stock. I will have the other graphic options available soon.

Well, my Extra is all finished and ready to go, thanks to some leftover gear I had. The kit was missing pushrods and main landing gear. I'm running the Turnigy motor that is an option with the kit with a 10x5 E prop. I've got a few different batteries, ranging from 1320 to 2100. I've also got an 11x4.7 SF prop, but that draws too much current for the smaller batteries. It'll be a great combo with the 2100 pack I have.

Tomorrow is looking clear but chilly. It should be good weather for a maiden flight.
