Rescued Eflite Extra 260 Profile

So Travis was given a very used Eflite Extra 260 profile. It had seen some much better days before we got our hands on it. I enjoy fixing planes, trucks and helis so I got my grubby little hands on it and went to work.

Stock this plane has 14 braces and when Keith gave it to us it had 6 and all of them were either broken or had come unglued. Apparently he had it set up where he could just wall it and it would break off 4 braces under the wings. His idea of fixing it was "More Glue!" so I had to break most of it off and start from scratch. I had to replace the bracing running down the fuse with some slightly larger carbon rod but it was the smallest rod the LHS had. But Keith was nice enough to give us the park 370 and a ESC that he used on it with the stipulation that "When you crash it and destroy it, give me the motor and ESC back." That will work great for us

So after weighing it I have found that its a little on the heavy side. Recommended weight w/o battery is 182-220g, actual is around 240g w/o battery. Recommended weight w/ battery is 220-270g, actual is around 325g. I wanted it a little heavy due to the fact we dont have anywhere inside to fly so it will be flown only outside.
