"EXTRA"-ordinary aerobatics...with the ease of ARF construction!

Extra 300S .40 Size ARF

It's all of the flying thrills of an Extra - in a fraction of the building time! Great Planes' ARF version of their immensely popular .40-size Extra 300S kit takes only a few evenings to be flight-ready, with an added quality touch of being already precovered in genuine Top Flite® MonoKote® film. But don't let the ease of assembly fool you - this flier's favorite delivers all of the head-turning performance you'd expect from this world-famous aerobat. Combine all that with its superb styling and scale detail, and it's easy to see how this ARF will get you "extra" excited!

  • All major assemblies come expertly precovered in top-quality, genuine MonoKote film, the #1 choice of more modelers worldwide.

  • An included adjustable engine mount makes for easy installation of all engines within the recommended range.

  • Sturdy pre-painted ABS wheel pants are also included to enhance the sport-scale looks.
Elevator control horns Parts layout
Radio compartment
A roomy radio compartment offers plenty of space for installing and maintaining radio gear, as well as for positioning the servo tray to alter the center of gravity for either a 2-stroke or 4-stroke engine.
Landing gear
True-to-scale to the full-size Extra, this model features rounded landing gear, made of heavy-duty aluminum that will stand up to less-than-perfect landings.
Dual servos make aileron set-up a snap, and add precision to aileron response for crisper aerobatics. The elevators work independently using a dual yoke, which increases control surface authority by eliminating twisting and bending of the pushrod.
The preassembled ABS cowl is prepainted to match the MonoKote covering, and is large enough to conceal most engines almost entirely, helping to preserve the scale lines.

"With this exciting ARF, we've made it much easier for sport pilots to experience the kind of exhilaration that only an Extra can deliver."
