The crystal ball is hit and miss with China unfortunately. I do have them on my April order for sure but waiting for them to get back from Chinese New Year so I can get my confirmation. Hang tight, totally worth it!!

I just got this from Extreme Flight HQ:

"The Red, Black and White color scheme has been discontinued for the 78" Extra. "

Seems like a lot of confusion about what is and what is not in production. Moving on to other options

500 cc tank will do.

One more question.
Do you have guys Extra 78 with dle-35ra, if you do, i will be really happy if i get chance to see it, how it's mounted to the firewall. My plane it's actually electric one and i want to switch to gasoline one. My problem is that thrust washer sticks out from cowl about 35mm. Yes, i know that electric version has longer motor mount box than gasoline one, is this so much as is shown in picture? I read somewhere here, like i can make bigger hole and move carburetor back through the hole and fix this problem this way, but it does not work, because as you know dle-35ra have rare muffler system witch does not make able to do that, as there is showed in second picture there down.
Thank you in advance!

The electric fuse is NOT designed for the power pulses of an IC engine. While it can be done with strengthening and modifications, we don't really recommend it.

Yes, I know, but it`s already crashed plane and i thought, why not reinforce it and to fly on gas. As I said, I have to repair it in any case. The most that I have to reinforce this is mounting of the engine and a little bit around it, is not ?

I find that if I do what EF recommends things turn out rather nicely.
