Introducing the Extreme Flight


78" Extra 300 Arf


We at Extreme Flight RC are pleased to announce the release of our new 2 meter (78 inch) Extra 300.


Among many unique features, the Extra will be available in both dedicated electric and glow/gas versions.


The 78 inch Extra has already proven itself capable of performing and winning at the highest levels of aerobatic competition.


European Aerobatic master Donatas Pauzuolis won every round of the Aeromusical competition at the 2009 FAI sponsored World Air Games in Turin Italy with the Extra. Donatas wowed both the crowd and the judges with his daring and creative routines and the incredible performance capabilities of the 78 inch Extra allowed him to win six consecutive rounds.



The Extra excels at aggressive 3D flying, intricately choreographed freestyle routines and precision aerobatic sequences. Enormous control surfaces deliver crisp, authoritative command of the Extra with instantaneous response to every stick input.


Wing area and airfoil were carefully chosen to provide optimal wing loading for aggressive 3D maneuvering while still allowing for crisp and proper snap roll performance. The light weight wing panels allow for instant and accurate snap recovery and damping and make point rolls effortless. The included Side Force Generators add additional stability and increased authority in side slip (knife edge) maneuvers.



The intricate interlocking laser cut construction that Extreme Flight pioneered is prevalent throughout the Extra's structure, resulting in a lightweight yet robust airframe.


Carbon fiber is used as a structural component rather than as decoration and adds to the rigidity of the airframe.


Carbon wing and stab tubes are included as stock equipment along with a carbon fiber tailwheel assembly. An aluminum main gear comes standard and a carbon fiber gear will be available as an upgrade in the near future.


Dubro brand ball links and titanium pushrods coupled with dual truss composite control horns provide precision control surface actuation.


A canopy mounted dual spring loaded hatch latch provides positive canopy/hatch retention even during high G maneuvers.


The glow/gas version features a built in pipe tunnel to allow the use of a tuned exhaust system.


The 78 inch Extra is available in 2 high visibility Ultracote color schemes with contrasting bottom.


The cowl and wheel pants are finished in a high gloss showroom quality finish and landing gear fairings are included to add to the scale looks of the Extra.



Specifications:Wingspan:78 inchesLength:76 inchesWing Area:1225 sq. in.Weight:11.5 - 13 lbs.Power:1.20-1.80 glow engine,
30cc-40cc gas engine,

In conjunction with the Extra we have developed a new Torque motor and Airboss ESC to provide maximum performance for this airframe.


The Torque 5030/20 delivers 2600-3000 Watts on 10S using an APC 22x10 (depending on battery used) and the new Airboss 90 Amp Opto controller delivers smooth linear throttle response.


A cage mount is required to mount the Torque motor to the airframe, available separately or as part of an airframe/motor/esc/mount combo.

Very nice. Wonder how'd it'd be with a DLE30. Too bad there's not an EF dealer in Canada.

It should be good with that motor and a pipe.

Yah it probably would be. Could this possibly be the only plane in this size category with a tunnel.

As far as I know it's the only one this size with a tunnel, but not totally 100% sure. I'm sure if I'm wrong someone will jump in and correct me. I can tell you that it's lighter than most other planes in it's class and it feels very light in the air.

Re: NEW EXTREME FLIGHT 78" EXTRA 300!!!!!!

I, and a number of the EMAC guys out here in San Diego have one of these on order. They should be here in a few weeks. I will do a build thread when they get here. This should be the ideal medium sized electric for precision, and freestyle. At about 11.5 pounds, and 1225 sq. in. of wing area it should be a floater. For precision, the plane has been stretched, tweeked, and tested to the max. It has a length to wingspan ratio of 0.97. To put this in perspective, the very stretched Dalton Extra 300 M.L. has an almost identical ratio of 0.96. Tracking should be excellent. I'm really looking forward to mine!

Ben,
Texas is a "Red" State. Not a good place to try robbing banks. Maybe you should move back to California. LOL!
