Extra 300S

.30-Size Extra 300S from Fun-Key

Introduction:

I first spotted the Extra 300S ARF in a magazine advertisement by Yellow Aircraft and I immediately noticed its classic sport plane looks.  I then discovered that it was a 30-size scale ARF from Fun-Key Models and decided it would make a great conversion to electric power using an Astro Flight Cobalt motor. The attention to detail and degree of pre-fabricated work are impressive. All major components are pre-covered with Monokote. The fiberglass cowl is pre-cut, painted, and decaled. The plastic wheel pants are colored red to match the covering scheme. The undercarriage gear has been pre-painted and the control surfaces are all pre-slotted and hinged but not glued. The hardware set is complete with spinner, motor mount, fuel tank, wheels, and linkage parts.
