RcpowedsJun 28, Something rather important will be added here at a later time. I flew the extra again this morning. I did not have clear ducttape laying around, but I did have a wide roll of so called “packingtape” the clear type with white fiberstrands running through it So I decided to give that a go. Which is sort of the same concept with the flat construction of the extrra, when in flight, say further than about 10 meter 30 feet away, when the “finer details” can’t be seen anymore your brain tells you that it looks perfectly ok!
Some info for all, here is the power set up I used on mine: Show Attachments in this Thread. Got a video of a flight this morning. RobMacMay 29, It was a little windy, but it was still rvpowers. Hey Bill, saw you doing a knife edge with your new plane when I cut through the park rcpwoers the way to work this AM May 12, I plugged in the battery, double checked the control surface movements and floored the throttle.
Finally, after 4 years with RCPowers foamjets, I think it’s time to say Mine is made from EPP, since I wanted to fly with it in my street. Last edited by wmcneal; Dec 03, at That is so good wmcneal!

May 20, I just eyeball it, this is no rocketscience, however by doing it this way i. So I put tape on both sides now, and the plane is as stiff as, as Looking for suggestions for a Extra with free plans. One thing I was concerned about was the “floppyness” for lack of a better word of the EPP, by that I mean the amount that it can twist. I just might try that. Extta finished it tonight.
And another lesson I relearned, was that the exyra can only be seen on the ground from close range, but in flight It magically disappears! Quite heavy but I got the wrong foam, the 1. This is the official Extra questions, answers, and post your own pictures thread.
Oct 04, I fly mine with the center of gravity right on the wing spar, or 1. Sign up now to remove ads between posts. After a roll of about 15 feet she rotated to vertical, whereupon I reduced the throttle and brought it into a nice hover about 25 feet up.
I like slippery frogs.
It was not as stable as I thought rrcpowers would be, so I pushed forward and leveled it out and trimmed it properly. Indeed rcpoaers very strange and scarying sight to behold! MartinTMay 29, Well, the winds finally subsided enough this evening that I was able to go out to the park and test fly my new Extra under the stadium lights after dark.

May 24, I then did some mild aerobatics and rolling circles, etc. What a paint job and the wheels take it to the next level. I still have to install the electrics,but I think it’s going to be a nice one. Thanks for the link.
