    3DHS 44" Slick 580__More Pocket Sized Fun

    Park size planes are always an almost obscene amount of fun. Outside of a bit of preventative maintenance they are usually totally carefree, take up very little space in the house or garage, and fit in the car fully assembled and ready to rock. This, coupled with the ability to use smaller and...

    Yak EXP__Tales Of The Big Dog

    After writing "Picking The Perfect 60" EXP I wanted a little bit of a break from writing, shooting and editing video.

    Extreme Flight 60" Edge EXP -- The Unfair Advantage

    Let's face it: 3D Extreme Aerobatics is very competitive, even if you are not actually in competition. . It's a show-off kind of sport where you fly lower, slower, harder, faster and more on the edge than ever before. Of course, most 3D Extreme Aerobatics pilots are going try everything they can...

    Yippee! Charging The Lithium Polymer Beast

    Generally I try to stay away from technical articles about electric chargers and such because this is not my area of expertise. Mostly I try to keep the blog just fun, but you do have to charge your batteries and you do need to know something about it. I came into electrics knowing absolutely...

    60" Extra EXP__More Of A Good Thing

    After just over a year of flying the 48" Extreme Flight Extra EXP, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the new 60" variant. The 48" has been my go-to plane from the minute I flew my first one, so I knew a bigger version would truly be more of a really good thing. Everything else being equal...

    Inside The 48" EXP Details

    While the EXP series' performance is what sets them apart from the rest, not everyone sees the engineering that went into making them such superior airframes. A lot of it is hidden under the cowling, canopy, and covering. Certainly sound aerodynamics come into play, but there is much more. EXPs...
