OK, but 4S is the intended set-up. Simply ballistic!

Ben,


A 2818-900 on 4s with a 12 x 6E prop seems to be the ticket on this plane.

Looked really great at SEFF. Lee and Chris did an excellent job of flying them this past weekend.

What motor will require the spacers? In the video (Flightpass) what size 4S were you using and what is the expected flight times? Thanks,

The 2818/900 uses the spacer as it is shorter than the 2814/820.
Both Lee and I were using the FlightPower 4S 2550 Eon Lite and were getting 10 minute flights. I've also been flying with the Zippy Rhino 4S 2350 ($40)with great results.

Just what I was looking for...any advantage running the 2814T/820? I too have a bunch of the 4S Rhino's 2350 and your right they work great. Could you get away with running the Thunder Power 2600-2700 4S too? Hey great job on the sticks...I must have watched the Flightpass video a dozen times

I have a couple of the TP 2600 and 2700s and they are a great choice too.
The 2814 is a great choice as well, but no real advantage over the 2818. Anyone that saw the Extras fly at SEFF can attest to the amaizng vertical performance of the 2818 powered EXP.
Thanks for the compliment. Lee and I had a blast flying these things at SEFF. Must have put 20 flights a day on each one and always left the flight line with a big smile.

The performance in the video is AWESOME...the verticals are ballastic! With the 2818 and the AB45 you don't need an additional BEC? When can I order

BTW, loved those backward harriers on the flight line!!

No additional BEC needed.
We will open pre-orders when we return from the Joe Nall fly-in in 2 weeks.

Hey Big'h'


How do you think this compares to the 47" Extra SHP? Too soon to tell?

From the video's I have seen...this EXP looks INSANE! Has almost 80' of throw on the Elevator...wild tumbles and snaps I have the Extra SHP...but from the looks of the EXP, this is a whole different animal! The SHP is a gentle 3D plane IMO. The SR is better because of the airfoiled tail. I can't wait to fly the EXP...this Extra is going to ROCK!

PS: Also like the fact that this Extra (EXP) has a unique look to it...different from the other Extras offered right now. Where is the order button?!
