    H9 Carden 89" Extra 300

    My setup is:
    DA-60
    MTW TD75K Cannister

    Tru Turn 4" Ultimate Spinner unlightened backplate
    Spektrum AR9110X Rx
    5- JR 8911HV servos
    JR DS821HV (throttle)
    2- Spektrum 2000 mah Li-Po packs
    Tech-Aero Ultra IBEC
    Danhakl Designs 16oz Fuel Tank

    Building:

    The only issues I came across were, the elevator servo pockets were not quite big enough for the servo lead coming out the bottom of the servo casing to sit in and not be completely pinched and risk damaging the servo or worse, I dremeled out the pocket slightly to allow for more room.

    I also wish it had come with some anti-rotation pins in the wings, but it did not, so I made up some dowels and light ply pieces of my own and installed them right in front of the rear wing bolt holes were there was already some additional bracing in place inside the fuse.

    To save some weight and improve appearance, I decided later in the build to change the fuel tank out since it is visible through the canopy, I went with the Danhakl Designs 16oz tank, looks much better compared to the stock white tank.

    Flying:

    Didn't get this plane finished until late fall 2013, so I only have 5 flights or so on the plane at this point, thanks a lot winter......

    Having flown 35-40% Carden Extras in the past I was hoping to get a similar flying experience and man was it ever, IMO this plane flies very comparable to it's 40% big brother. Only a couple clicks of up elevator was required and a little bit of knife edge mixing. Can report more as I get more flights on the airframe, but for now I am impressed.

    No I do not. Whenever it decides to quit snowing and warm up I plan on getting some video of it.
