Look at the page listed above.Its defenatly my next plane.
I have three 25sized planes and flew my 40 sized YAK 54 this weekend, a complete new expirience very stable and pridictable flying characteristics.
The YAK 54 is a bit more on the weight than the Extra 260 40, its posible to get it under 2 KG.The HP Z4020 alu FRMT is not needed for the Extra, it has a longer ply box and a radial backmounting is requiered to hang the motor.
The rest is similar to the YAK 54 40e.It seems that many HP plane are not availeble in many parts of europe exept for scandinavia, and even there they talk about limited quanty.

For those intressted in the new YAK 55 25e size its also coming in black yellow.Lets hope the planes willbe availeble soon to all of us.



Regards Gideon

I did acspect a 40e size from EF but it didn't came out ,instead they give us
another 25e class plane.Hyperion offers alot of different sizes from 10e to 120e and inbetween.For all the planes they offer specific setups wich are high quality.they do a really nice job and trying to get everyone satisfied,from the e-park people to the big gasser.The products are not availeble everyware, but hey nobody is perfect.

I think i order a EXTRA in Sweden.Seems they have plenty out there!

Here they are, all 40e sized scale ARF's.I could only find six, but when asking me to put 25e planes in line i could fill two pages with them.So 40e size planes with a wingspan from approxmatly 135-145 cm are rare thats for sure.

Mopar92, can you change the thread title to "Hyperion Extra 260 40e-class - Build Thead"? Might as well keep the info together.

Someone on a local forum got his before I got mine... The pictures look awesome!

Can't wait to get mine.

I can't, I can only change the title's within this thread... which is stupid that they do that... I think a Moderator will need to, which is 100% ok by me! Mods, change the title to a build thread so we don't clutter the forums with similar titles puhhhlease. Thanks.
