ParkZone has been making airplanes that have caught the attention of park flying enthusiasts around the world. Their warbirds fly great, are durable and look really cool in the air. So news of a new one catches everyone’s attention. This time it is not a warbird! The new Extra 300 BNF and PNP is something different, it is a truly aerobatic model incorporating all the features we have come to expect but with more power and a flashy trim scheme that will appeal to just about everyone. Performance sets a new standard for foam models of this size. Experts might use it for competition aerobatic practice while intermediate pilots will grab it because it looks good and gives them the opportunity to keep advancing their skills every time they go to the field. The details and features this model offers are probably beyond what your expectations might be for such a foam airplane.
Matt Andren who is one of the ParkZone product developers came in with this new airplane so we could give you a look at the features the Extra offers RC pilots. This one is a very nice airplane and I think you will come to the same conclusion when you take a look at our video.
