Incorporating many forward thinking design elements, the EXP is the result of several months of R&D, flight testing and refinement. Loosely based on the mid wing Extra 300, the EXP has been manipulated to offer the most aggressive flight envelope imaginable. Following is a brief rundown of some of the unique design features that contribute to the amazing flight capabilities of the Extra 300EXP.
