Default Which 100cc for Christmas???

Time for a switch from my Bowman 30% Ultimate bipe. I've had it a year and am going to sell the airframe, but am looking for another to throw my DA-100 and gear in. I mostly fly 3D and fun fly. I have it down to two birds. Help me out - I can't choose!

Thanks!

Man that is a tough call... hear many good things about each.

Mayb you should buy one of each.. I will fly them both and tell you which one is better. I will take the later off of your hands

Ditto on the Performance Aircraft Unlimited 36%!!!

This plane ROCKS!!!!!! Watching Ken fly his is a blast, check out the vid here: [link]http://performancercaircraft.com/pau/Videos/43_edge.wmv[/link]

That is the big one in the vid, but I am sure that they both fly similar.

Regards,

Astrohog

Extreme Flight 110" Yak

I just saw that thread! Don't know how I missed it! It sure is a good problem when there are too many choices of great planes for your 100cc mill! I can't wait to see the first video! Seeing is believing for me.

Sure looks good! Are there any videos of the 36%? I'd like to see the actual plane fly - I know bigger sometimes is way better.

That is a tough decision to be sure. I love the Sukhoi, but the aeroworks extra and the WH Extra are all calling to me hard!!!!

if you want to see video of the EF 110,look at some footage of the Huckfest in Atl. , the plane presents like a 40%er,but lighter than most of the 100cc planes on the market.

I just spent the last two hours watching videos on the EF 110" Yak - it sure looks good. I still haven't found a vid of someone really wringing it out. I think it will be amazing!

Here's the kind of stuff I wanna see...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjqI5OrwbJ4

-Low harriers (inverted and upright with a ground reference - shows airspeed)
-Hovering/Torque Rolling with a view of the control surface input (flap deflections)
-Blenders!
-Flat Spins
-Wateralls
-Walls
-Long Knife Edge Passes

I think the EF Yak would take the cake, but I can't drop a grand or more until I see it. :-)

Speaking of that - has Chris released the price of the EF 110" Yak yet?

You should check the Pacific Planes 35% Extra 260.

Compares favorably with both the AW and the WH.

Very well built and very complete... Easy setup for DA-100 (template).

Just check out the 50cc vid at PAU's site and see how that one flies!! This is a proven design that flies great at all sizes!!! I own and fly the 50cc Edge and it is a blast!!

My sukhoi rocks with the BME 115. I think the extreeme flight would be good also.

Cool - looks sweet. How is the visibility of that color scheme? I like the looks of it a lot, but it
sure does have a lot of blue on it. Does it get lost in the blue sky? How about the silver bottom
on the clouds?

Any videos? I'd love to see it in flight.

I saw a few vids of it today - looks pretty nice! Looks like a good 3D'er. The price is right too!

I saw Chris fly the Extreme Flight 110" yak at the Fly for Tots in Raliegh, NC. Beautiful Plane and Chris really turned the heat on. He flew after QQ Somizini and Chris impressed me just as much, with the big Yak.
I would love to have one if I didn't already have my 35% SD YAK
