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

So it sounds as though the year of punishment, wasn't with a GAS engine?
It was the electric version?

Was a prototype "gas" version flown?
Or is the SAP180 and Ed's pipe combo the 1st proto flown?

Gas 2-strokes and big banging 4-stroke Alcohol/nitro engines, can add lots of Vibes
to the airframe, to say the least.

IF the Gas version is completed? Why isn't there any internal shots of the pipe tunel, and all the
other goodies on the web?

I am sure that this will been seen as negative sounding (to all the purists) but it had to be asked!

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

I was thinking the same thing, but I'm sure the plane will be available before my flying season starts again and I'm sure that it will be awesome when it does get here, so I didn't say anything. More pictures to salivate over would be cool, though

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

Jkock713, let me assure you that this is not our first BBQ, we've been manufacturing and selling gas aircraft for many years now and know what is required structurally for an aircraft to be airworthy.
When we get closer to releasing the gas version we will inundate the internet with pictures, details and videos. Until then, no need to let our overseas competitors (copyers) see what we have worked so hard to develop.
The structure of the gas version's fuselage is quite different than the electric version and was specifically designed to handle glow and gas engines and accomodate a tuned exhaust system.

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

To answer an earlier question, we are using a Macs header for an O.S. 1.40RX. The holes in the mounting flange have to be drilled out slightly, other than that it is a great fit for the engine. Todd Syssa will be offering headers once he gets caught up with engine back orders.

Thanks, that's what I wanted to know.

Now my wish list is complete.
