Hi Caroline and Dennis,
Hope you are doing well.

I am finally getting you some pics of our new 40% Extra 330S.  I have always been a CAP  fan, but I am looking forward to competing with the Extra.  It definitely draws nice lines and rolling manoeuvres require little effort.
The Extra is powered by a 3W-150 from Aircraft International with
Pefa cans turning an Airmodels 32x11 two blade prop
It has JR equipment
throughout except on the rudder, which has two of the large Hitec digitals on pull/pull.  

The Duralite Plus batteries provide many flights with consistent power, and the plane is finished off in Ultracote and graphics
from Cutting Edge Graphics.


Thank you for all your support and for continuing to design such
wonderful flying airplanes. 

I have also enclosed a picture of my father (Tom) shown with your original 35% Extra 300S that is still flying.  He competes in the sportsman class of Imac.  I have thank him as well for helping me build the planes and all the support and inspiration he provides.

We look forward to flying with you soon!

Thanks again, Brian Hannah

He's 24 years old, came in 10th at the Masters and has been flying our 40% Cap for about 2 years.  He's a great guy, and a wonderful help to anyone he can be - he's a friend of Dan Baker

In these shots Brian is at a local flying field near us in North Carolina, not too far from our shop
