I flew the Extra today and it flew great,

Excuse me, GREAT!!!! 

About 3 clicks of down trim and that was all. 


Flew it twice, the first time was just to shake it out a little bit, the second flight I was torque rolling and doing rolling circles like it was on a rail, and I haven't flown for three months.

I would have flown it more but I ran out of daylight. I can't wait for another day with good weather so I go again, mean while I'll get started on the 40% Edge and help my friend with his 35% Edge.

I attach some pictures of my 40% Extra.  I have 39 flights on it and it
is  flying great.  I am also flying the 40% Edge and I am enjoying them both.

HI  Caroline,

Here are a few pics of my new 40% Extra 330S.  It was built by Mike Lapierre.  Isn't she pretty.

DA-150 for power and JR 8411's all around

Flies like it's on rails!!! Thanks for the GREAT kit. Like it says on my trailer "Wouldn't you rather fly a Carden"

Please add my pics to the gallery if possible. Would it be possible to add with Tony Bonano's planes.  We fly together at the Black Dirt Squadron in Florida NY.

The Club has 100 members We fly off 11 acres of grass which the club owns right in the middle of farm country.

About 75% of the club flies 35% and up aircraft (most of which are Cardens)

Thanks, Jay Sofia

In a recent visit to Brian Hueffmeier workshop, I was able to get some good pics of his new Extra that was on display at the Toledo show. That day Brian put it in the air for a quick run through of the sequence.  The aircraft presented very well and with that color scheme was very easy to see.  The DA-150 on canister mufflers made for a very quiet, easy on the ears flight.
