Great Planes 46 size Extra 300 to electric


Here are some pictures of my Great Planes Extra 300. I origianlly started building the plane 4 years ago. I had a OS46FX for it. I ended up just giving away the motor. I build the airframe for a gas motor. Just before I got the body done I got busy doing other things. About 6 months ago I became a statistic for the downturn in the economy. Now that I had time again. I figured it was a good time to finish it. I cover it in white then painted the colors on.

The plane weights 5 pds, 13 ozs AUW.
on a 4cell 4000mah battery I can fly it with aerobatics for 10-12 minutes. longer if I don't ring it out. It has unlimited verticle. It is by far the best plane I have ever owned.

Very Nice Bluefork,
Love the covering job.

Did you do any mods from the stock kit? What motor do you have?

I'd love to see some video too if you have any.

I just built it to the instructions. Except for the battery mounting. I made a cuttout on the bottom of the fuselage infront of the landing gear.

I'm running a TGY AerodriveXp SK Series 42-40 750Kv / 600W
with a 14x6 APC prop.
50 amp ESC
and a Rhino 4000mAh 4S2P 25C Lipoly Pack

I'm pulling 44amps at 750 mah at full throttle.

The battery and motor aren't even warm after flying.
