Wish I had a meter(anybody got a link on a meter?)
After work Ill set up the aileron linkage, mount the battery and esc and I shall be flying if the wind permits,actually it was calm yesterday but it was 95 degrees and today is gonna be hotter.
Video report coming soon

Sorry about you motor. I never used Sf prop. So I couldn't tell about the Amps draw and prop size. I personally have the Metter from HK and it works perfect.

Best

^^ my motor is fine. it got warm, not hot
it calls for a 10x4.7 prop, so an E prop in a 10x4.7?
or what prop would you use for low and slow

Sorry my English is not good enough yet I understud that your motor were burn up. Well I use APC E 12x6 and I can go really slow but I try also 13x4.5 and It is even slower and I got a lot of torque. I prefer 12X6 because I can go a bit faster keeping a really good torque for hovering. May be using a 11X5 SF you would have a very good torque. Just guessing.

Cheers.

so my stock motor finally gave up on me, lucky i was plenty high enough when it did so the forced landing couldn't of turned out better. i'm now looking for a cheap replacement motor and was wondering what everyones thoughts are.. i'm running a 9x6 prop(not slow fly) and am into fast aerobatics not 3d. i would like to keep the stock esc. the stock motor made enough power to keep me happy, i just need something that won't crap itself when running flat out for long periods.

Here's what I used:

Just remove 1/4" of foam behind the firewall, reglue the firewall on and mount the motor. Fits perfectly and the stock spinner can be retained...

hobbyking extra 260 EPO very fast flight (4 min 8 sec)


ok so i got my turnigy 35-30 1700kv motor for my extra 260 and now its extremely fast. I put an APC 8x4 prop on it. I left the spinner off to keep the amps down on the motor.

Ive had two flights with it so far and its so fast now the cowling came off in flight. Both flights i broke the prop on a belly landing. It wont do very slow landings now. So i stole the landing gear from my hyperion sniper x II and put it on my extra 260. Ill post up pics later.

Very happy with it now. Its very fast. Sounds so nice in the air as well. Moves around like a little rocket.

I lost the foam peice that goes in the battery compartment as it flew out it was that fast so i made a plastic hatch and it clips on with a rare earth magnet. I will post pics later.

Im running turnigy 1600mah 3s lipos in her and she runs very light. I might try and get some higher C rating or nano tech lipos to see if i can get any more speed out of her.

Tell me what you think guys?

it was only warm mate. Im tempted to put an 8x6 prop on it but others say it will burn out this motor.

I set the esc timing to high as well and it seemed to help the motor run much better.

I will have to wait till i get some more apc props till i can fly her again. I want to test out the new landing gear i made for it.

you focus allot on speed. Maybe the Funjet is something for you?
if you do not have such plane, I can advice you to check it out
on 4s 2200 this plane is fast and fun

about your packs. Check the 40C range of Turnigy and then 1800 or so.

nah i dont want a jet i want a fast acrobatic plane and now with the 1700kv motor i have it.

Im only getting about a 3:30min flight though but thats ok. The noise this thing makes in the air and the exhilaration it gives me makes it all worth it.

Im more then happy with my extra 260 now so its all good. A jet gets boring you go back and forth do a spin roll and loop whoopie.

Im just keen to try out my new landing gear i made for my extra 260
