CARF Models Extra 300 2.1m on YouTube
There are many reasons speaking for a 50cc „every day“ plane. You want to do one flight after work ? No problem. That plane will fit in every car. You want to preserve your valuable 40% from the hard training ? Our 2.1m Extra is the perfect standby. Or maybe you are new in the aerobatic business and looking for a more affordable plane, while you don’t want do miss the advantages of a full-composite design ? Again and again, there is the answer: Our Extra 300 2.1m.
And we did our homework: Based on the very successful Extra 2x2, we increased the wingspan to reduce the wing-loading. A 50cc engine still accelerates that plane like a rocket. And another change has been done: The elevator is now pin-style hinged to get more throw.
Well, we all know that the selection is huge in the popular 50cc class, so why decide for a more expensive and a little bit heavier full-composite kit ? The answer is easy: It’s about robustness and durability. If you are only doing 10 flights a summer, you probably won’t see the difference. But if you fly your airplane almost every day, the vibrations of the engine will kill your wooden plane quickly. Making it sloppy, look terrible, not flying straight anymore.
With your CARF-Models Extra 2.1m, you can laugh about that. There is no way to see any fatigue even after 100s of flights, if you look just a little bit at your plane from time to time. The whole full-composite structure is so stiff and strong, that it really resists the vibrations. Forever.
