We have three of the Aero Works ProX260s in the club with DLE20s. They seem to do well. They are the .60 - .90 size.

I know PB did not like his but they seem to be doing well here.

I like the idea of a strobe on the fire flies. I have built four now and another one on the way. I met one of the guys yesterday and he said it was his favorite plane. His cousin flew his and decided he had to have one. That is the new one on the way. It was windy So the FF War was a little harder to manage. I was flying also but I stopped to shoot the video. Just as I turned on the camera that low save happened. I decided to make it slow mo to highlight it.

Thanks Dad, Yeah I liked the scheme just to give it a non blank look but put 2 purple stripes on it instead of blue just for that extra special ugly look lol

Wayne yes you could hear the wind for sure but it was still looking like you guys were having a blast

OOps forgot the other pics of the build lol

Yeah Wayne this is your prime flying season. Looks like you were having tons of fun.

I'm looking forward to flying with you Wookster. I had such a blast the last time we all flew together with Lt Dan Alias Kerwin 49. Don't worry about your little girl, we're all parents and be glad too watch her while you fly. We'll have a mini twistaholic gathering Just give me a buzz an we'll chat.

The Extra? Jury is still out. I am not happy with some of the things about the ARF kit given the issues I have run in to. I think It is over priced.

I have not had any of the 3DHS Kool-Aid so I am maintaining my objectivity.

It flew pretty well Sunday. It did not want to get into a flat spin inverted or upright. I was disappointed about that. I did not fly it very hard. Frankly, I was more interested in seeing the smoke system work and it did very well. It knife edges pretty well. I am going to increase the expo slightly. It is a bit touchy around the middle. It was manageable for sure but for now I would like to have the low rates a bit softer, just a bit. It was too windy to try any serious hovering or anything.

The landing in the video was the worst one of the day. I did a number of touch and goes earlier and it was behaving nicely. I have the trim and idle set that it will settle almost by itself. We have some bumps and dents in the field and I drug a wing tip in the video.

I hate the covering. It is Ultra crap and wrinkles within an hour at the field. A couple more trips to the field and I may put the SFGs on. Possibly put the pants on it.

The engine, DLE-55, is doing great. No complaints.
