Extreme Squirreltail 300 Coming at you

First real almost full flight with the Extreme. Propped it down to a 11X7 instead of that 13X4W prop just to relive some stress it generates and it still had great power. Actually even played a bit with it seeing how balance it was inverted and very little elevator required to stay level so maybe a little playing with the cg . Rolls no problem and and it seems to keep a straight line, loops are easy and heck I even did one knife edge. But there was a little snap and then a slight vibration so I brought it down quick before anything left me and it all came home in one piece. Slight little crack in the motor mount and I think I have the cure for that.

That turned out to be a pretty quick plane man. Maneuverable as it should be but that was half throttle? Slick machine

Just 1/2 most of the flight, I did dial it up a bit compared to the last time and added another flight mode with a bit more yet, will slowly turn it up as long as it keeps coming home in one piece :) .

2 full batteries ran through the Extreme , no snaps, pops, cracks or vibrations and the motor is still in it. Time to give it some color now. :)

It flies rather well, slowly turning the rates up on it , I think it is going to be a fun plane. :)

Well tempted fate going out in 44k winds but all came home intact. My new Extreme handles the wind pretty good for being such a big bird. No real fancy stunts today other then an almost text book vertical landing.
I tried to taxi it back but as soon as I would give it any power it wanted to lift.

A little thump a couple weeks ago showed up, I thought maybe the 3D printed mount was breaking but it was the foam cracking just behind the motor mount . Noticed the motor was moving around a bit to much after landing last time. Surgery table it is , a little bit of grafting and it is ready to fly again once the glue cures.
