Re: *Extreme Flight 2 meter Vanquish*

I hope they offer some better color schemes. I would love to see the red/black/white/silver scheme they use on the Yak adpted to this. It is one of the very few schemes they have on their planes that look good.

These are the only good photos that I could dig up of this beauty. It will be scary flying F3A... - that is, if you're flying against it.
If you're a FlightPass member, here's a video of Andrew Jesky flying it: http://flightpass.higherplaneproduct...anq1-H264m.mov

Hmmm... spy photos... from my local airfield!
I'm not a F3A guy, but I've seen it fly a few times.... it's amazing what Chris' engineers are putting out!

One was tested with one of our Electric motors and the other with a YS 1.70 Glow engine.
None tested with gas. Too much vibration as Pattern planes have to be kept at a certain weight ( 11 lbs ) and gas engines, well.....

Re: *Extreme Flight 2 meter Vanquish*

Well you'll have to wait, since it's never coming. What? This christmas? Yeah right. Would be released last christmas as well, and we all know how that went.

My advice.. buy something else, like the Delro Addiction, which is only slightly more expensive, BUT it exists!

Mailed EF last year asking when it would be released.. well.. that would be before christmas, but always on time for the flying season. Asked again in february.. no really, it'll be on the market any time now. Hacker put it in their pricelist, shops started showing it in their webshop.. well.. then it must be almost ready, not? NOT.. asked the shop in april, no really, it's going to be in stock anytime now.. NOT.

The ONLY mention of this entire plane on the EF website, is a posting by Chris in 2008 (!!) stating that it would be coming soon. Well, now I don't know what the definition of soon is, but I wouldn't call a 2.5 year setback soon. This design is now more than 2 years old and it already wasn't the most modern design out there.

The only thing EF ever communicated through forums, is that they were working on it, because they wanted it to fly good.. wel after 2.5 years of working on it, one can sure come to the conclusion that whatever they started out with, musthave been a total crap piece of airplane, that it needs 2.5 years of tinkering to fly straight.. :P

Sure.. if it finally hit the shops, and they do manage to hit the 650 dollar mark, it'll still be a hit. I'm sure it'll fly fine, and the quality will be fine as well, as goes for all extreme flight birds.

But will it be released? don't count on it. Don't put off anything because someone sais it's almost being released. They have been saying that for 2 year now.. fool you once, shame on them, fool you twice...
