Thank you Cliddy ! I have an AXI 2808/24 and want to know If I can put it in a Fliton Extra and be happy with it. My next choice would be the Katana mini. The Katana seams to have better construction and would have a bit better wing loading but I like the look of the Extra more.

umm dont rate the build of the Katan becasue it has a bit of carbon fiber. That was my 1sr thought.

But the fliton looks soo good (but im not to keen on the pink I might need to make it into a Red Bull racing Edge)

But its s tuff choice
Looking at the spec the AXI should work but I would like some 1st hand advise please

Thats what I was thinking I think our motors may be a little big for the Fliton Edge / Extra

I did not vote because I do not know enough to answer intellegently. I have a KM flying and a buddy is finishing his Fliton Mini Edge. Both very nice planes, but the KM is substantially larger. I am drooling over his Edge though, and a Fliton Mini Extra is definitely in my future. If I could only wreck the KM...

Wow your going to jinx your self talking like that!!

KM is a nice plane but I get the felling that the fliton is a little nice. You dont need to know much about the 2 planes just what one you perfer

The /20 is a bit hot for the katana IMO. You really need to spin a big prop so the 2808-24 would be alot better. It may work a bit better in the smaller fliton planes as a 10" prop fits them a bit better but I would still go for the -24 if I had the choice.

Thanks papasmurf do you think the extra weight of the motor and 2000 mah batt will hurt the Fliton Extra or Edge as far as flight performance very much ? Thanks

IMO, with the weight of the 2808 and the 2000mAh battery, you may find the the flight performance is not to your liking.

What battery then? 1200

I have the 330 and the KM. I like the 330 MUCH better. However, I am running a Tprque motor and 1320 pack and am at, like 21 ounces. At that weight, wingloading is no problem. If you need to run the 2100, it may fly a little heavy.
