Congrats to Aaron Garle for making
"Aaron "Bones" Garle here
from the Land Down Under.
Just thought you might like to put this photo. After
many years of flying IMAC, I have decided to give F3A
a go to help with my flying skills. My second competition
I entered this year was the Australian Pattern Masters
where I placed 3rd in the Masters Category. I also recieved
a position on the Australian F3A Team for this years
World Championships in South Africa that I have accepted.
The plane that I was flying was a friends 2m Vanquish
that I had only had 4 flights on before the competition
started. The gear that was used: - F3A Silver Bullet
motor - 5000mah 10S battery - Mejlik 21x13E prop - Futaba
Servos Thumbs up for making a great Pattern aircraft
Flight RC Summer/Fall 2012 Newsletter
fellow RC aerobatics enthusiasts! I hope you all are
enjoying a great flying season. As I'm writing this
Summer is winding down and the first hints of cooler
Fall temperatures are in the air. 2012 has been a very
exciting year so far and I'm going to touch on some
of the highlights, but first some long awaited new product
are happy to announce the arrival of the highly anticipated
inch MXS-EXP! This latest addition to our EXP series
is a real hotrod and is sure to put a smile on any hardcore
3Der's face. Please follow the link to the official
webpage for all the details. We currently have stock
of the yellow/black version. The green/black version
will be included on our next container, due to arrive
in 4-5 weeks.
in time for the release of the new MXS-EXP is the arrival
of the brand
Revolution 4016T/500 MKII brushless outrunner. This
unit replaces the older version and has been updated
with thinner high quality stator material, improved
magnet retention system, internal rotors to improve
cooling, the ability to turn 16 inch props on 6S and
MORE POWER! This unit will now ship with all combos
for the 60-64 inch aircraft. Please
The MKII version is 6mm longer than the previous version.
If retrofitting this motor in place of the prior version
it is recommended that you plug the holes in the cowl
mounting tabs with toothpicks and re-mount the cowl
for the best spinner-to-cowl fit.
in stock is the recently released 48
inch Laser EXP. I'm a huge fan of the late Leo Loudenslager
and his Laser 200 and always knew that at some point
Extreme Flight would have to produce a Laser. We've
taken the Laser and put a few modern twists on it to
bring it up to the performance level that all of us
expect from an EXP series aircraft. The results have
been fantastic and the Laser EXP is quickly becoming
a best seller! Please follow the link to the official
webpage for more details.
possibly the most anticipated release in our 10 year
history, the 104"
Extra 300 has finally been released! This amazing
airframe has already made quite a name for itself with
6 out of 20 pilots flying it at the 2012
XFC! Our first shipment sold out in 3 days, but
we have lots more coming soon. Please follow the link
to learn all the details and be sure to sign up for
in stock" notification email to be among the first
notified when the next shipment arrives. We expect the
next container within the next 4-5 weeks.
and I had the pleasure of hosting Daniel and Michael
Holman in our home this Summer. They arrived just before
our departure to the Joe Nall Fly-in and stayed with
us through the XFC. Not only are these young men two
of the best RC pilots in the world, they are kind, courteous
and outgoing and certainly an asset to Team
Extreme and the modeling community at large. The
boys practiced daily and tweaked their brand new 104
inch Extras to perfection. Their freestyle routines
were among the best I've ever seen and they seem to
improve their skills with each flight.
of the 2012 XFC, Team Extreme made quite the impact
on this event. As mentioned earlier we had 6 of the
brand new 104 inch Extra 300s in the competition. Team
Extreme Pilots Daniel Holman (3rd place), RJ Gritter
(4th place), Jase Dussia (5th place.. and 12 years old!!!),
Devin McGrath (8th place) and Michael Holman (13th place)
all flew extremely well and competed with skill, grace
and exhibited excellent sportsmanship under truly grueling
competition conditions. I am so proud of all of them!
Team Aeroworks pilot Chris Gini flew my personal 104"
Extra in the competition after a spectator accidentally
fell on his model rendering it unflyable. Chris finished
a respectable 15th place.
I want to extend a heartfelt thanks on behalf of Melissa,
Curtis and myself to all of you for your business and
continued support. We remain committed to bringing you
the best in RC Aerobatic airframes, accessories and
service. Stay tuned for more exciting new product releases
in the near future!
ya at the flying field!

At long last flying season is
upon us! We here at Extreme
Flight RC have been traveling
since February when we started our show season with our
yearly trek to the Gateway RC Club in Jacksonville, FL
for FX3D, a great event to benefit the Children of Fallen
Soldiers Relief Fund. We were blessed with great weather
which resulted in a large attendance and a large amount
of money being raised via the raffle for the charity.
This is a great event to attend for a very worthy cause
and I highly recommend adding it to your calendar.
just returned from a wonderful week at SEFF, the largest
electric only event in the U.S. We had the opportunity
to have almost all of our Team
Extreme pilots together in one place for this event
and a great time was had by all. Extreme Flight was well
represented on the 3D Flight Line! Team member Donatas
Pauzuolis from Lithuania made the long trip over to join
in the fun as did Daniel Holman from Washington State,
Lee Morey from New Jersey, Jeff Williams from Indiana,
RJ Gritter from North Carolina and Chris Jewett and Avery
Poole from South Carolina. There were over 40 Extreme
Flight aircraft on the 3D Flight Line and there was rarely
a moment when one of our aircraft wasn't being put through
its paces. Daniel Holman logged over 150 flights for the
week! SEFF is held each year at Mac Hodges field in Andersonville,
GA and is another "can't miss" event. Next up
is the almighty Joe Nall fly-in in Woodruff, S.C. If you
are planning to attend please stop by our tent on the
3D Flight Line and say hello.
big news to report is the release of our new 60
inch electric Edge 540T EXP! Due at our shop next
week, this aircraft has everyone really excited. Simply
put, it is one of the most stable 3D airframes we've released
to date. Built around our Torque
4016/500 brushless outrunner and Airboss
Elite 80 Amp ESC, the Edge is a 3D monster. Please
for more information including video of the aircraft in
action and an interview describing many of the details
about the Edge. We have opened pre-orders for the Edge
and are also offering a combo with the motor and ESC at
quite a savings. Whether you are an advanced 3D pilot
or just getting started, the 60
inch Edge 540T EXP deserves a place in your hangar.
are also getting re-stocked on this container with just
about every aircraft currently in production, including
the hugely popular 48 inch EXP series. The EXP series,
which currently consists of the Extra
540T and MXS
has taken the modeling community by storm! With their
unique feature set and stunning flight envelope, these
aircraft offer incredible "bang for the buck"
and are among the most capable airframes in this size.
If you are looking for an inexpensive, easy to transport,
easy to assemble aircraft with unlimited performance,
please have a look at our EXP series. Pick the one you
like the looks of most as they are all equally capable.
We've got a feeling that once you try one of them and
experience its amazing flight characteristics you'll be
back for another!
sincerely hope each of you has a wonderful flying season
in 2011. Stay tuned for more new releases in the coming
months from Extreme Flight RC!

2009 News Update
few months have been quite busy for the Extreme Flight
crew! Between the Southeastern Model Show in
Perry, GA, The Weak Signals Expo in Toledo, OH, SEFF in
Americus, GA and the Joe Nall in Woodruff, SC we have
covered a lot of ground! It's been great getting to see old friends
and meeting lots of new ones.
Still several shows to attend during the 2009 season
including the XFC, Chattanooga 3D Jam, Toys for Tots Fly-in
and of course the Hotlanta Hucktoberfest.
I'm sure there will be a few more last minute additions
as well as a trip to China in there
exciting news to report!
We are expecting a new container to arrive in the
next week which will contain the highly anticipated Russian
Thunder Yak-54 in both the 50cc and 100cc sizes.
In case you haven't heard, Jim Bourke, owner of
Knife Edge Software, RC Groups, Flying Giants, and Crack
Roll owns the only full scale Yak-54 still flying in the
U.S.. The legendary Russian Thunder Yak-54 was made famous on the
airshow circuit by the late Eric Beard, and Mr. Bourke
has licensed us to produce our Yak-54 with this color
scheme. This iconic aircraft features a beautiful
high visibility color scheme that is sure to turn heads
at the flying field.
There is a very limited
number of these on this container so if you are interested
please contact us ASAP to reserve one.
board is the new 48 inch Extra 300EXP.
This aircraft is by far my favorite small electric
that we've produced thus far.
Please check out all the details on the product
This is one bad machine that is sure to "fly"
right out of our warehouse, so be sure to place your order
50cc Edge 540T that we unveiled at Toledo
is currently in production and we expect to receive our
first shipment later this summer.
Look for updates as we get closer to the release
of this new powerhouse aerobatic machine.
requested one more prototype of the 78 inch Extra from
our factory to be sure that the last few modifications
were correctly implemented. We should receive this sample by the end
of May and will get it in the air immediately. I expect to receive the first shipment
early fall. This
aircraft will be offered in a dedicated electric version
as well as a gas/glow version.
at the Joe Nall, the 123" Extra 300 has been finalized
and is ready for production.
Cowl and canopy molds are being machined and wood
is being cut. I
am returning to China
right after my anniversary on June 7th to oversee the
beginning of production.
I know it has been a long time coming, and for
that I apologize, but I am glad we took the time to make
the changes incorporated into this most recent version. The improvement in flight performance is
substantial and I feel confident that the 123" Extra
will become a dominant force in the upper levels of IMAC
and invitational competitions.
more releases are in the works and I'll talk more about
these in the next news update.
hope that all of you are having a great flying season
and I look forward to talking airplanes with you at an
upcoming show. Please stop by our tent and rap with us
for a while, we'd love to hear your feedback and get your

Flight R/C announces Competition Rewards Program
Extreme Flight RC owner Chris Hinson
announced Monday April 20, 2009 the beginning of the new
Competition Rewards program. As an incentive to get more
pilots involved in IMAC and Freestyle competition flying,
the Competition Rewards program will benefit pilots who
make the effort to compete with their Extreme Flight RC
For placing in one of the top three
positions in his or her chosen class, the pilot will be
rewarded with a $100 credit for first place, $75 credit
for second place and $50 credit for third place toward
the purchase of their next Extreme Flight airframe.
Proof of placement must be provided by the pilot along
with a photo of the pilot with his Extreme Flight airframe
Pilots placing in the top position in 3 or more contests
in a single season may be eligible to join Team Extreme
and receive a sponsorship from Extreme Flight RC.
this new program, Chris Hinson said "Competition flying
demands a lot of time and effort from the pilot including
proper set-up and dialing in of the aircraft, countless
hours of practice, travel to and from the events, time
away from family and a lot of dedication. I wanted to
do something to reward pilots who are willing to put forth
the effort required to be successful in competition flying.
It is my hope that this new program will offer some incentive
to get more pilots involved in the competition scene.
So download those sequences, buy a 5 gallon fuel jug and
proceed to burn some fuel! Best of luck to you all and
we'll look to see you on the podium!"
