E Flite Extra 300 1.3 m


Hi everyone.

Now Iím partial here to balsa planes and just like the way they fly. My foam planes usually consists of planes like the E Flite timber and are fun. I did some research and wanted a 3D/ IMAC trainer.

Well I went to my local hobby store and picked up the Extra 300. The quality is nice and assembly was super fast. The longest part was waiting for the 5 min epoxy to dry on the rudder hinge and tail wheel.

I was most impressed with the superb flying characteristics. I would say itís very close to my larger Hangar 9 Sbach 60. It will do the beginner IMAC schedule with no problem and more. Inverted flight is spot on and it tracks great. It has good power on a 3s 2200 mAh and much more power with the 4s set up, the 3300 mAh gives me more flight time (5-6min) and balances the plane well. There was no issues with the CG with either battery set up.

On the watt meter I got 800-1000 watts with 73-75 amps with the 13x6 prop and 60-62 amps with an APC 12x6, which I like better. Just a side note, two other members of my club have the same plane with a stock set up and they both got 73-75 amps with 1100 watts. So thinking itís the C rating on the batteries.

Iíll be doing a video on the plane soon on my YouTube channel, RC Aldrin. So check that out Iíll put a link below. Thereís a trailer for the extra, just a short teaser so to speak.
