My guess would be to show off the pilot? Most larger ones seem to have a cockpit and pilot, then the smaller ones use tint because they donít have a cockpit? I could be wrong though

Makes as much sense as anything I can think of.

You can't see all that glorious black G10 (carbon look) in the small ones so much, and you can in the big ones, so EF wants to show it off??

Actually we use a different plastic on the larger models that is more resistant to damage from the vibration of gas engines. We've not been able to source it tinted unfortunately.

The scheme for the 57 & 72 was a real scheme, the scheme they have on it is a real scheme as well and was one of the factory schemes they offered back in 2010ish though 2015ish.

Now what is copied is that fuselage, you can see its a stoops fuselage from a mile away.

Chris will there be more than one color for the 70" Extra. Maybe Blue/Orange/White ?

Well, that makes sense. Being an electric guy I never stopped to consider that.

I used to prefer the tinted canopies but I really am starting to hate how all my electric canopies ship and break with just the lightest bumps and hanger rash.

Well.. in my opinion, it is much closer to the 3DHS scheme than the full scale one.

This full scale looks close to the 3DHS versions

Yes, but it is not the same, and the 'CopyKing' one looks much more like the 3DHS one than the full scale.

Question for you. Having just released the 78'' V3 Extra what will be the difference between that and the 70'' extra. Both take roughly the same setup and not far off in size. I saw the 70'' at Nall and it looks nice. I am just finishing my 78'' V3 and curious what the difference between the two are? Basically if I already have a 78'' is it worth it to get the 70'' as well or are the both very similar?
