  • Extreme Flight 3D Planes

    Anybody out there flying any of the Extreme Flight planes? I know this general category mostly covers the Black Horse ARF's and some of the FMS planes, but I have to say, I'm absolutely in love with the 60"-62" Extreme Flight planes. The quality of construction is outstanding and assembly is a breeze, as everything fits together like a glove. The only extra work I do is building out the cockpit, putting a floor in along with a pilot and building an instrument panel using iflytallies gauges. Only takes 1 day to build the plane, and maybe about 3 days for the cockpit work.

    I'm sure the Black Horse ARF's are just as nice, but haven't pulled the trigger on them yet, and I'm so familiar now with the build of the Extreme Flight planes that it's super easy for me with no surprises.

    These planes almost fly themselves; I've said before they fly better than any trainer I've seen. Knife Edge at 60% throttle with only 5-10mm of rudder deflection, level at any orientation, flat spins super easy and harrier and hovers all day long. You can almost take off and land them on a flat bed truck. I'm not that good a pilot but these things make you look like you've at least flown before, and they are gorgeous. The 60" versions are a little pricey, $300 for the plane, but by the time you get the motor, ESC, receiver and high torque servos in, closer to $850, but worth every penny. I imagine the 48" planes fly just as well, and can probably be finished under $450. I'm dying to get a 74", but it doesn't fit in my truck and now your looking at around $1,300 or more.

    Put a little photo video together of my Extreme Flight Fleet:

    Would love to hear anyone else's experience.
