I flew the Extra Slim for many years with an i.c. motor and always liked it. I toyed with converting it to electric power, but it was well soaked with oil which would have complicated matters. I came across an Extra Slim Twin kit and decided that this would be an even better option, so I bought it. It appears that Ripmax have discontinued the kit, but you might be able to find one somewhere, or they may reintroduce it.
