2010 News Update
Greetings valued Extreme Flight customer!
Spring is just around the corner, bringing blue skies,
warm sunshine and some great flying weather. We
here in Georgia have experienced an unusually cold winter
and are overcome with cabin fever. Seems many
folks around the country are experiencing the same situation
as the banter on the RC forums has grown unusually bitter,
condescending and at times downright rude! Let's
all remember to think before we type and ask ourselves
"if I were to engage this person face to face over
this same topic, would I communicate the same way".
The internet provides anonymity which removes accountability
and unfortunately makes some folks feel that they can
say anything without taking others feelings and situations
into consideration. The internet forums are a
powerful tool. Let's use them to share our combined
wealth of knowledge to increase our enjoyment and understanding
of this hobby rather than let discussions devolve into
tabloid-like drivel as they often do.
Lots of news to report, so let's get down to business!
We have just received the first shipment of our new 48
inch Edge 540T EXP and 48
inch Vanquish MKII pattern aircraft!
Following on the success of our enormously popular
300EXP , the Edge
540T EXP is a wild and raucous ride for the 3D maniac!
Featuring the unique construction methods developed in
the Extra EXP, the Edge EXP is a powerhouse 3D airframe
that will satisfy the needs of the most "Extreme"
inch Vanquish MKII is a highly refined version of
our original Vanquish release form 2007. Upgrades
include an airfoiled tail section, carbon and composite
reinforced fuselage, carbon fiber landing gear and a gorgeous
new color scheme. Please visit the product page
for more details.
we're discussing the EXP series aircraft I have to direct
you all to a trilogy of videos sent to us by Daniel Holman
from Washington state. Daniel is a fine young man
in his early teens who has an unbelievable talent behind
the transmitter sticks. Far from just another hot
shot 3D pilot, Daniel combines aggressive 3D maneuvers
with smooth and graceful precision aerobatics. I
know most of you have seen hundreds of videos of hot shot
pilots on the internet, but I ask you to take a few minutes
and view these videos. Daniel really shows what
this EXP series aircraft is capable of! Click

month we received our first shipment of 50cc
Edge 540T airframes. This latest 50cc release
from Extreme Flight has been extremely well received within
the aerobatic community, so much so that our first shipment
sold out within a few days of its arrival. Another
batch is in the works so if you are interested please
contact us ASAP to get on our backorder list. I've
got a feeling the next shipment will go just as fast!
We've also received both the Gas/glow and
electric versions of our new 78
inch Extra 300. This is the airframe that
Lithuanian RC pilot extraordinaire Donatas Pauzuolis
won all 6 rounds of the prestigious international
World Air Games competition with last Summer. Designed
for 2500-3000 Watt 10S electric power systems
or 30-40cc gas engines (and a host of glow engines
in the 1.50-180 range) these aircraft are phenomenal
performers. Learn more here.
Were in the midst of doing some Spring cleaning
here at the Extreme Flight warehouse to make room for
all of these new arrivals. While current supplies
last, we're offering the ever popular Jeremy
Chinn profile Yak-55SP at a substantial savings-$119.95
plus shipping! That's $40 off of our
normal price! Act quick to get in on this killer
deal-they won't be around long at this price!
We are also offering a great price on the current
king of high torque digital servos-the Hitec HS-7950
Titanium gear servo. This servo offers close to
500 oz. inches of torque and is the ideal choice for
your new giant scale aircraft. We've had great
success running 2 of these on the rudder of our new
40% Extra 300. Please give us a call for the best
price as we'd get in trouble if we published this on-line!
The show season is now in full swing!
We've recently attended the FX3D event in Jacksonville,
FL followed by the Southeastern Model show in Perry,
GA. Next up is the Toledo Expo in Ohio, followed
by SEFF and the mighty Joe Nall fly-in, of which we
will again sponsor the 3D flight line. If you
have the opportunity to attend any or all of these shows,
please stop by our booth or tent and say hello and check
out the latest, greatest from Extreme Flight RC.
I know that a lot of you are facing challenging
economic times, just as we are. I want to take
this opportunity to thank all of you for your business
and continued support-it really means a lot to our family.
Extreme Flight is a small family run business doing
our best to provide the modeling community with products
that equal or surpass those of the "corporate hobby
giants" and without your continued patronage and
support this simply would not be possible.
Blue skies ahead!
Extreme Flight RC
