I just got my TREX Pro done and put one flight on it and even though it flies great I'am actually thinking on getting the Xtreme.
After reading all the good stuff I'am just about to hit the buy button, even spoke with Rusty by email and he was quick to respond, looks like he stands behind what he sells.
By the way I forgot to mention and some of you know me on here that I don't keep a heli for very long and really have to say I enjoy building them more than flying

Green and orange are the only canopy colors offered?????

Is it really that good?????

You need to buy one - you will be very impressed. They are awesome. I bought one and had to have a second one.

I'll jump in here, even tho I'm the guy who gets to sell this great machine,I might have a bias opinion. I wouldn't be doing this if the Xtreme wasn't as good as everyone who has flown one claims.
I have tried to explain to pilots about the way the Xtreme flys, or feels in the air but I just can't seem find the words to get the job done, really you just need to fly one and then you'll understand what I mean. Any of you guys here that is flying the Xtreme or have flown one give DCORSAIR your opinion to help explain the performace... The best way to descibe it is.... the Xtreme feels like your flying a model on the simulator "G3", you can turn and fly out of any trouble.
Thanks

Well i bought one without even flying it. I liked the quality of it and the machine work on it. Everything looked very well engineered. I did see one fly and it looked great! Everything about the ship looked great. I got one.....just dont have it finished yet to give you an opinion on how well it flies. Couple weeks and it will be in the air!!!! I dont think anyone has been disappointed in one!

That is a heck of an endorsement, a guy who owns an X-Cell Pro 2k knows quality. I had one of those, and it was by far the nicest piece of equipment I've ever seen. How would you compare the construction, machining, and design to the Pro 2k? Is it up to that standard? I've been fighting with myself on whether to buy an Xtreme or not and just can't bring myself to pull the trigger.

I'll chime in here too.
Rusty and I have been online buddies for a while now.
We seem to have an uncanny mental connection to helis.
We both were probably some of the first and only to get a Sylphide 50 based on quality and uniqueness.
We both ordered our Airskippers from Japan before they were sold here in the US.
We both had fully blinged out Voyager 50's with carbon frames.
We both inquired to RJX regarding US distributorship before there was one.
And all of this unbeknownst to each others actions and the fact that we live many hundreds of miles away from each other!
Well, Rusty ended up having the time and $$$ dedication to go for the distributorship and I don't think any one else could do better.

That being said, I have upgraded my Airskipper to the RJX metal head and as soon as I had the money together, bought an Xtreme without hesitation.
The quality of the kit combined with domestic support, manufacturer reaction to distributor feedback, and the quick development of new and exciting products and accessories makes this heli a no brainer.

If you like BUILDING a heli, then you will love the Xtreme. It's got a pretty high parts count, but you get to build the whole thing.
I personally love building too and had a great time seeing the heli come together rather quickly.

And no matter how you fly, set the head for your style and it will be a rewarding ship to own.

Yeah, but that's only with the G10, and the silver CF is just too sexy, even if I believe that G10 is a better material for the purpose.
