RE: Looking for a Sport Plane
The PA Extra is a lovely plane to fly. If you want to fly hard 3D, she is a beaut but the light wing loading is an issue in windy conditions. Try to look at the Sebart SU29-30 or the EF Extra 48". I find the Sebart to be more gentle, more to my liking than the EF but the EF is relatively more snappy for me. Not that its not as good but the EF can execute some wild maneuvers. Both are good planes.
