Looking to do some hard core 3D bashing in your backyard! The 32" EPP Xtra Vector by Hacker Model is a great for the entree level 3d beginner as well as the experienced 3D pilot wanting to fly in small areas. With the newest design concepts for EPP construction this model can be assembled quickly yet withstand abuse of learning 3d moves. With pre-hinged constructions and all CNC EPP construction makes for an easy assembly.
Model Spec's: Wingspan/Length = 32"/31" AUW: 7.2oz w/ LG (weight w/ 2s 25c 450mah)

Xtra Vector "Chaos“
First time building one of these. Wanted to practice 3D flying with this plane. I ordered the accessories kit (motor, speed controller and servos) you will need two servo extension leads (8” will work). I watched a YouTube video on how to build this plane. It helped a lot. I was surprised at how much there was to put together considering how basic the plane looks. However, nothing was difficult. I purchased two of the 450mAh batteries. I set my low rate at 50% and expo at 15. I set full rate at 100% and expo at 30. My first flight was a lot of fun. I set it at my feet, hit the throttle about 3/4 and it launched into the air. I adjusted elevator trim and rudder trim and then started tossing it around the sky. This is not a sport plane that you just fly around the pattern. It doesn’t turn well with just aileron. It is meant to thrash around in the sky at high speed or super slow speed. I learned quickly that the 450mAh battery only lasts about 4-minutes. I was hovering over the runway when the motor quit and it fell onto the runway. But guess what? No damage at all to the plane. Set the timer to 4-minutes and no problem. I have now ordered the 600mAh batteries in hopes of at least 5-minutes of flying time. I love this plane!
EPP XTRA VECTOR
Have previously built and flown a Crak Laser which Has been used for over a year with great enjoyment. The Vector is a new purchase to replace the beating I have given the Crak. The build is even easier and while it is not guite ready to fly, I know what to expect and can hardly wait. I will leave another review after flying it.
