Composite-ARF Extra 2.3m

February 2008 has seen the maiden flight for my new C-ARF Extra and all went well! Again I have chosen a DA 50 with Krumscheid Exhaust, but this time opted for an APS Smoke pump with a pressure check valve between the pump and the exhaust, to produce a positive punch when turning on. This combination produced already some fantastic smoke on the second flight!

After the terribly early demise of my Composite-ARF 2.3m Extra in a mid-air I thought I'll start again with something rather small (but to be truthful, the next 2.3m Extra in a different colour scheme is nearly completed again...). Plans can be found here, I used my Step-Four to machine all the parts, including the glass-fibre control horns and airbrush stencils:

Composite-ARF Extra 2.3m

Sept. 2007: My Extra has now had it's successful maiden flight, and it flies like a dream. The DA-50 is still running in on the 1:32 mixture so no fancy 3D yet but it looks great in the air anyway!

For the inner structure I have used my home-made material: end-grain balsa sandwich vacuum-pressed with carbon cloth, then cut on my Step-Four mill.

The virtual cockpit is a very light structure (3mm foam board) with photos glued on, have a look at http://www.wrightrc.com/.


Just busy putting together my new Extra, hopefully finished for this summer!


Etana (Mountain Models)

This plane is starting to become one of my firm favourites - due to it's size it goes straight into the boot in one piece, and flight performance is phantastic.

With a wingspan of 112cm and an AUW without batteries of 722g, it goes unlimited vertical on a Tornado 3508/1300 (Flightpower Evo 2500mA with Castle Creations 35 Amp speed controller). I can really recommend this plane for intermediate / advanced pilots, it Harriers as well as it can get. Knife edge is without any tendencies. You can buy the kit in the UK here.
