First, maiden flight video:

Precision Aerobatics Addiction - Maiden Flight (6 min 53 sec)


From August 2015 until September 2018, the E-Flite Ultimate2 was my #1 plane. By last summer, I was so confident flying it that I put a wood prop and aluminum spinner on it. That changed after NEAT Fair 2018. After a disappointing HK auction followed by a few beers in the Beacon tent, I walked by the Flex Innovation stand with exactly enough money in my pocket to buy a Mamba 10 from two really nice guys. Since then, my top lineup has changed significantly. The Pa Extra 260 is definitely #1. The next 4 are really close to each other. I'd have to go:

1. Precision Aerobatics Extra 260
2. Mamba 10
3. Precision Aerobatics Addiction (original)
4. E-Flite Ultimate2
5 Extreme Flight 48" Edge 540T EXP

Some of you may be thinking that Extreme Flight Edge should be higher on the list. I want it to be. It flies fine and I have it dialed in now, but it is taking me a while to get used to. I think it is because it is extremely light and it responds so incredibly fast. I love the insanity but sometimes I think it is going to tear itself apart. Definitely a high pucker factor plane when doing insane maneuvers with my most expensive plane. I'm sure after 50 or so flights I'll calm down. The FI Cap 232 would be on there if the servos didn't fail. There was no crash and FI replaced the two servos, but I am still nervous about it. I should turn the gains down.
