110 Yak, low and slow dog! Ef Extra 104 only scored lower in my book because of the wing dipping tendencies. I surprised that this was the only complaint!


I think the thread will help FGNewbie. People will give their opinions and he can make his final decision. Good thing is that the EF 104 V1 is no longer an option.


Just a note. I still own and fly all these planes.

And I own an EF Extra 104. People give their opinions but no one has flown the many options that are out there.

I ALWAYS wanted to fly one of those....
When I get back into it, one may be on my list. 🙂

Wing dipping?

I’ve had the 110 which I loved, and have the 104” Extra and 91” Laser...

I love my V1 Extra too.........but the slow roll rate bummed me out.......I ended up with a set of 105 Slick wings as part of a deal so I covered them the classic scheme and made a few changes so they would mount up to the Extra. The wing tube being identical made things too easy. Flight performance turned out way better than I ever imagined.

Extreme flight Extra 300 v2 104”. Definitely one of the best 3D flying planes out there.

The reality is, the thing that makes an airplane great is often more setup than the airframe itself. Most of the options out there are going to be a great flying airplane once setup correctly. By the same token, a poor setup will make any airplane fly like garbage.

Pick one you like the looks of, and take the time to setup and trim it properly, and you'll have a great airplane.

I have Gabriel's 300LX from the last shootout and its a really great tracking plane. I know Spencer said its the best flying PAU yet.

I keep seeing everyone mention the PAU Extra 300LX. However, on their website I only see the Extra 330LX. It this the airframe that everyone is referring to?
