Designed by Mike McConville, the ParkZone® Extra 300 PNP comes out of the box equipped with a powerful brushless motor that provides more than enough power for precision aerobatics. Positive and negative G maneuvers, snap rolls and more are all within the Extra's capabilities. And it lets you do it all with virtually no roll or pitch coupling. Best of all, you can have this Plug-N-Play® version airborne in just a few minutes. All you need is a 4-channel full range or parkflyer transmitter and receiver, a 3S 11.1V 2200mAh Li-Po battery, and a 3S Li-Po charger.
Charge-and-Fly™ convenience, outstanding flight performance and beautiful scale detail—with the ParkZone Extra 300 PNP, you get it all.
I just got this bird and this is awsome!!!
I might add I have seen negative comments on this Extra, but I guess those are coming from rookies that this is not intended for for them to fly.
If you rock on your T-28, this Extra will leave you with your mouth open on how well it performs.
Tips: Flying on grass, get rid of the wheel pants, and get some bigger wheels, there are some ultralight from Great Planes.
(This came to my eye, after 5 years in the hobby. I am almost certain people that are getting this plane as second or first would not notice.)
So, PARKZONE: THANKS AGAIN!!!
Purchased my plane online and got the extra battery. Received it in less than a week, in excellent condition. Read all the amendments and followed their instructions to the " T ". This plane has got to be one of the best investments I've ever bought. It will do every stunt an aerobatic plane can do, knife edge with min. coupling. Even will do a knife edge loop. Vertical climb is very impressive along with top speed. ParkZone has done it again, with another great plane. I just kep flying this plane, Thanks ParkZone for the great deal.
I've read all the bad and a lot of good about this plane and I decided it was time for me to try it out. Maiden flight was in 7-8mph wind gusting to around 15mph and the plane handled it great, was very predictable and overall a good clean flyer.
My first flight I used the rear CoG setting per the recall instructions and the flight was good, but for the second and third packs I used the forward CoG setting and I'm pretty sure that's the position I'll be using for good. The plane rolls clean, loops to any height you'd like, will fly vertical very well (better than I thought it would), inverted flight was remarkable, knife edge was clean, etc. I'm already looking forward to my next time taking it out.
As far as durability...on one of my first flights I used a borrowed battery (buds wanted me to keep flying instead of waiting for the charger), and although the motor will speed up and slow down when when the battery is low this pack "dumped" so fast I was left landing dead stick in a freshly planted corn field. The plane descended flat and smooth but when I hit the ground it ended up cartwheeling across the wing tips. I took the "walk of shame" to find only that the cowl had a dirt scuff and the wing tips had evidence of having been compressed but no breaks or tears, very happy with that.
This was my first attempt at a stunt style plane after flying many other war birds and high wing planes. I am very impressed. First, this plane is extremely durable. I've bounced it off a garden shed and made a few other very rough landings when flying in excessive wind and it's come out fine. The plane handles so well - and can do anything you ask of it in terms of stunts. I also love the power range - from slow and steady to lightning fast. This is the best plane of over 20 planes that I've owned.
The landing gear wheel nuts are not of the same thread size as the threads on the gear wire. Horizon Hobby has a tech note stating that you need to lock-tite the nuts in order for them to stay in place, but as the threads are incorrect, it's a mute point.
My Extra is grounded until Horizon Hobby fully acknowledges the defect and issues a proper fix. The possibility of the wheels coming off in flight or on takeoff/landing will most likely result in some form of damage to the model upon return for landing.
It is a nice flying model and a great value, however, I would not recommend purchasing this model until a permanent fix is in place.
Crappy flyer...I followed the instructions to the tee in preparation to fly. On my first flight the plane rolled out nicely and shot straight up off the ground. I had to put over half down elevator control and over half left aileron control with full power or the plane would go into a spin. After one minute of trying to stay ahead of the plane, I reduced power in prep to land and the plane went into a spin all the way to the ground! The plane was totaled from the cockpit to the prop. Several of the observers at the field could not figure out what was wrong with the plane. The next day, a club member mentioned something about a big problem with that model. Now I hear there is a notice out on the wing and CG. I'm very very upset!
