A handful to fly, but FUN! 4 cell Lipo recommended. Review by Johnboy

Overall, I feel this plane is a great deal for the price. I have always wanted an Extra 300 in my fleet. This plane assembled together very nicely, and fast! I had it together, rx installed and trimmed out in about 30 minutes or less. I flew it for the first time yesterday and had a great time. With flying the plane using a 3 cell Lipo, the CG is a little off and makes the plane seem tail heavy. I was using a Maxamps 3 cell 2100 pack. Even with the battery placed as far forward as possible, there still wasn't enough forward weight to make for a comfortable flight. I also felt that if I had used a 4 cell, I would have had that extra power I was searching for. My first flight resulted in needing some adjustment and my first landing was very schetchy! I really put the landing gear to the test and was impressed. The landing gear is one solid piece and VERY strong. For my second flight, I re-adjusted my linkage to give less throw on the elevator and set my expos to 30% and the plane was much smoother and my next landing didn't require me giving the landing gear a second run through the gauntlet.
Othe than re-adjusting the elevator linkage to something different than the assembly manual recommended, I would highly suggest using a 4 cell Lipo and not even wasting your time with a 3 cell. The CG will be better and you will have the extra power when you need it. This plane is fun to fly, looks beautiful in the air and the size of the plane makes it easily visible while flying. I am happy I bought this plane to add to my collection. (Posted on 10/27/13)
