More information about Great Planes Extra 300S 60 Kit .60 GPMA0236

The Great Planes Extra 300S Aerobatic is a big, beautiful aerobat with point and go performance. The full-size Extra 300S, arguably the most popular Extra seen in competition, has seen many R/C versions modeled after it - but none quite like this one.

The Great Planes' .60-size Extra 300S is lighter than other similar kits, allowing it to fly better on a 2-stroke .60-.75engine. Builder-friendlyconstruction will inspire confidence in your assembly skills, and when airborne this Extra exhibits precision maneuvers that are nothing short of remarkable!

Among the high-quality Great Planes hardware included in this kit is a precision-formed, 2-piece ABS cowl that fits nicely around engines in the recommended range to complement the sport-scale realism. The Extra 300S .60's lock-and-tab construction creates a strong, straight airframe, and the turtle deck is balsa-sheeted to virtually eliminate time-consuming carving and sanding.The radio compartment not only allows for twin elevator servos, it's also spacious enough to accommodate a smoke system, if desired.

Includes: All wood to build the kit, pushrods, hardware package, ABS cowling, Butyrate canopy, photo illustrated instructions, CAD generated rolled plans, pre-formed Duraluminum main landing gear and ABS wheel pants.

Requires:

  • Engine: .61-.90 (2-stroke) or .91-1.20 (4-stroke)
  • Radio: 4+ channel (twin ail & twin elev can use channels 5 & 6)
  • Servos: 5-6 (6th servo is optional 2nd elevator servo)

  • Twin aileron servos, giving more control authority and simplifying installation.
