"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 " - Awesome stuff and Congrats to Aaron for making the Worlds!
We recently received this email from Team Extreme pilot Daniel Holman. Daniel is one of the most talented RC pilots I have ever met and a true gentleman and ambassador for the hobby. Daniel writes: "My 91" Extra 300EXP is powered by a DA-60 on a KS-1060 pipe turning a Vess 24B Stealth propeller which provides excellent power in 3D as well as high-speed aerobatics. I am running JR 8711HVs on the elevators and rudder, JR MP-82T's on the ailerons, and a JR 8917HV on the throttle. Everything is guided by my Spektrum DX-18 transmitter and a Spektrum AR-9110 PowerSafe DSMX receiver. Receiver power is provided by a pair of Fromeco 2,600mah Li-ion batteries with a Fromeco DC-Up MKII to keep the amperage up during the most demanding loads. This airplane is the epitome of EXTREME and is the most capable giant scale airplane that I have flown. It feels like a giant foamy with insane control authority through all 3D maneuvers, is exceptional for XA (Extreme Aerobatics) type flying, and still flies sequences better than many 35% airplanes. Extreme Flight has done an outstanding job producing what is, in my honest opinion, the best 3D/XA/IMAC hybrid airplane in production!" - Daniel Holman
Local RC pilot and friend Chris Mercer and his son Hunter with their new Extreme Flight aircraft! Chris has the 78" Extra which is powered with the E-Flite Power 1.60 on a 10S setup. Hunter has the 64" MXS-EXP powered by a Motrolfly motor and sporting a custom graphics package from Eric Bryant at B&E Graphix. Great looking planes guys!

Jordan Fuller sends us this wonderful pic of two aspiring pilots and the 60" Extra! Jordan writes, "After flying this plane it is the best flying plane I have flown at this time. I was surprised how easy it was to do a knife edge. This plane will go with me each time to the field for sure. I am very impressed with how this plane is put together from the support in back where the vent is on the bottom side, to the wings that have 2 anti-rotation pins in them and not just relying on the wing bolt. For me when spending money on a plane I like to know attention to detail was followed. I am using a motorfly motor running on 4s 4000s. I have an align 75 esc and hitec hs 225mg servos all around." Thanks for the picture and thanks for the support!
Local pilot and friend Nathan Cicio and his lovely girlfriend Ashley with Nathan's Laser EXP. Nathan's Laser is powered by the Torque 2814T/820 brushless outrunner, an E-Flite 60 Amp ESC and uses Hitec HS-65MG servos. He uses a Spektrum DX-18 for guidance.

John writes "I call her Lil' Surprise since my wife purchased it for me without me knowing after the XFC. I know I'll never be a Daniel Holman or Chris Hinson flying it, but I do know I'm having a blast with it!" Thanks so much for your business and support John, it is much appreciated!
Team Extreme member, Daniel Holman, sent in this picture and writes, "The new 64" MXS has fast become one of my two favorite electric airplanes with it's excellent blend of razor sharp precision and mind-blowing 3D! I'm using the recommended Torque 4016T/500 V2 motor, Airboss 80A Elite ESC, Falcon 16x8E propeller, JR 3711HV servos, JR 921X receiver, Thunder Power 2s, 850mah receiver battery, and 6s, 4,000mah flight packs and a custom graphics package from B&E Graphix. All guided by my new Spektrum DX-18 transmitter. This airplane is truly EXTREME!"
Aaron Garle of Australia, came up to compete in the Recent Clover Creek Invitational. Due to some logistical issues, Aaron could not get his planes here to the States. So Extreme Flight Owner and President Chris Hinson loaned Aaron his personal 104" Extra to compete in the freestyle events. Looks like Aaron is right at home with the 104" ;) Thanks to Higher Plane Productions for the use of the photo!
