This product was added to our catalog on April 23, 2010.The Great Planes Performance Series Extra 300SP is ready to knock the socks off a new generation of pilots! The GP Extra 300 SP can be flown with electric or glow power and includes an expertly covered airframe in Monokote covering, 2 piece wing and lightweight built up structure. Large, airfoiled control surfaces and generous throws offer precise maneuverability at high and low speeds. Many pilots would love to fly a giant-scale Performance Series model but aren’t yet prepared for the size and expense. The .40-size sport Extra is both accessible and exceptional – handling hovers, inverted harriers and knife edge as well as “the big ones”.
The Extra 300SP is designed to accept 2-stroke, 4-stroke, or brushless electric power systems. Helping to make assembly quick and hassle-free, the radio compartment offers a spacious amount of room for easy installation of your receiver and other on-board components. Outstanding manufacturing, parts fit and prefabrication allow the Performance Series Extra 300 SP to be flight ready in about 6-8 hours.

Great Planes Extra 300SP .46-.81 EP/GP ARF
This is an excellent quality piece of kit, which went together quite painlessly all in all and flew with nothing but one click of trim on its maiden. It has been all a kid learning the art of RC flying has needed, able to do anything we asked of it with the exception of hovering under the OS 46 engine. In hindsight we would have tucked the bigger engine in the cowl, but to be honest, there's been no reason to upgrade or move to a different airplane. Nothing has fallen off, broken or let us down. It's been a hoot flying this thing upside down at high speed a few feet off the runway. Easy landings too. I would add a warning that the magnetic cockpit cover catches seem a bit sketchy. Seeing that replacement cockpits require the purchase of a whole new fuselage (what's up with that?) I recommend the addition of an extra rare earth magnet to the rear cockpit bulkhead.)
