Well flew it for the first time today and seven more times today !!!! I have a new favorite plane !!!!!!!! I can't even describe how pleased I am with this plane it lands better than any trainer I have seen and flys like its on rails. It has great control authority combined with great stability can't ask for any thing more!!!!!!!! I set it up with JR 537 servos on everything but throttle and used a Hitec HS-81mg on throttle . It is powered by an OS 91 pumped and a 15X4 W APC prop I would recommend this plane to anyone!!!!

I bought the plane through Atlanta Hobby (WWW.ATLANTAHOBBY.COM) you can also see it at WWW.FLITON.COM and I must say I had an issue with the landing gear sent the guys at Fliton an email and they sent me out a new set of gear no questions asked. Plus they contacted me to make sure I got the gear and to make sure I had no further problems great customer support if you ask me. Both of the web sites I listed have great video footage of this plane in action check it out you will not be disappointed!

Lee,
He got some stuff in today, but I am not sure if it is the 330's. He will be in for half a day tomorrow and then he is off to Germany for an EXPO.

How much do these things sell for? Looks like it would be a good home for a Saito 100?.?.?

I gave 205 bucks for mine plus shipping. A saito 100 would do great on this thing. The saito is a good deal lighter than my OS 91 and a litlle more powerful.

I did not installed it yet. Just tinted it. I was planning to use the screws.
The plane came out quite nicely but I'm a little bit concerned about the elevator linkage. It seems flimsy. Having second thoughts installing 2 servos in the tail with short push rods.
In the existing configuration it's tail heavy ; the battery will go on the side of the firewall. If I'm not mistaken in the manual is a picture showing the cg at 88mm on the root.
How are the nylon bolts holding the wings ? Did you try some violent blenders?


Boby

BTW .... on my postal scale with Saito 100, custom muffler, 1500 mA battery it came at 92.5 oz. I think that's a really light plane. My yak 68!QUOT! the same engine is 8lb 4 oz.

So far I haven't had any problems with the wing bolts other than putting them in as my hands are to big! I read on E-Zone in the reveiw that the cg needed to be moved back to 125mm. I have moved mine but have not flown it since. The weather here in VA has not been cooperative at all most of the time the wind has been in excess of 30mph! I will post a flight report with the CG moved back soon as I get back from Sweden in April .

I walked into the LHS today saw the Extra and I knew I was scr#wed!!!! Its sitting at home now ... just wanna ask ... will this baby fly with a Saito 72, I am not going to use her for 3D, was thinking since its only 6 lbs then a Saito 72 should be very fine. I am going to want good uplines only. Anyone to comment, please do not ask me to get an OS91 or Saito 100, if not I will end up fitting on my YS110 and tearing the wings apart. Thanks!!!

The saito 72 will strugle with a 6 lb plane. I had my 72 in a 6lb plane, it went well, but not unlimited vertical.

I then put a 100 in and was very happy

I am not looking for unlimited vertical but just IMAC/F3A flying. Perhaps you are right ... the Saito 100 is pretty light ... maybe my YS110 is better, just worried about the vibration.
