  • Extra 300 BNF

    Designed by Mike McConville, the ParkZone® Extra 300 BNF comes out of the box equipped with a powerful brushless motor and Li-Po battery combination 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.

    Have flown this plane about a dozen times and have had no problems after adjusting the CG. I have been flying since I was 14 yrs. old. And flew target drones for the military for many years. As a professional flyer, I always take a day or so looking over any airplane I buy. I check out the design and look for any design flaws. After studing the extra 300 and doing some math it was obvious the cg was wrong, just do the geometry! Any plane to me is an investment, check it out, always !!!!! " It's a great flying bird in the right hands."

    This is the best EP that I have right now in my hangar. Excellent flight and performance. I recommend this aiplane 100% - it is a great buy. I just put the battery to the forward position, and I don't have any problem with this baby, in flight or landing. I only recommend glueing with epoxy the landing gear base, and you will no have problems with this. Thank you for this release!!!

    This plane flies perfect out of the box. Set your CG before flight and hold on. The upside down wing issue is bogus...have a look at my flight on youtube and judge for yourself.

    Great fun plane.

    This is the best plane that I have ever owned. It does everything I wanted. It is super stable and glides well. It can fly fast or slow. I like how it handles great on the ground. It can easily do vertical rolls and fly upside down. It has tons of power. I hope they keep making this plane forever.

    Wonderful BNF

    Appearance

    This is one of the most enjoyable planes I have ever owned in my 20+ years in the hobby. I have had hundreds of flights and have not been let down by the plane yet. The only time I have ever had a problem, it was my fault. I have seen some bad reviews on this plane, and I attribute it to being a plane that is too advanced for some fliers. Like all aerobatic planes, it will snap if you put too much elevator, and you need to land it with some speed. The plane is simply awesome for intermediate to experienced pilots. My son and I have three of them and fly them as a plane of choice.

    After adjusting the c/g this is a great flying little airplane. Kinda new to electric and BNF I had to have one after seeing it fly by another club member. Wish I had bought it direct from Hobby Zone so as to get the special deal on the second battery.

    There is definitely negative camber in the wings, and the CG needs to be shoved forward, but once you do that, it's a fun plane.

    After flying it a dozen or so times I'm beginning to like it a bit more. It tracks very true on take offs. The power is way too much for me while attempting prop hangs. I changed the prop to a APC 12X3.8 slow fly and this did the trick! It does a beautiful knife edge with ease. I haven't changed my CG yet but looking forward to seeing a improvement there too. My only complaint really is the landing gear is just not sturdy enough and pulled out on me easily after just hitting a small crack in a parking lot.

    I bought this back in July, and I have had a lot of problems with it. First, the 3 landing wheel gear tore off. Then, while I was flying, it did a left roll and could not recover and crashed. I was able to repair it. The eighth time out, another crash. Same thing: left roll right into the ground. A tree saved it from major damage. I fly with a club; I have had people try to help me with it, and they said to try replacing the receiver. So i did. I got 3 more flights with no problem and thought it was fixed. Today, the same thing happened, and the plane broke in half and damaged the wings. I was able to repair, and I am now going to replace the ESC and the aileron servos and see if that helps. When the plane works, it is fun to fly. If anyone has experienced these problems, let me know what you found out please. Also, I did contact them about my LiPO battery going bad after 4 months, and they did not replace it. They told me to contact horizon, and they were no help.

    This is totally B.S. Horizon made, and distributed a terrible flying mistake, and will not even admit to it!



    This is unbelievable!!




    I think this is a great idea. I already emailed them last week and I won't buy one till they fix it.


    Response given to me.

    Thank you for contacting Horizon Hobby Product Support.

    There is not going to be any changes to the wing for the Parkzone 300.
    There was extensive testing down from the research team and found
    nothing wrong with the wings. The center of gravity was the problem.
