Aeroworks 30cc Freestyle Extra 260


Love this plane, it flies true and straight. I have decided this will be my IMAC go-to airplane this year. This is my first year flying IMAC (basic); really looking forward to it.

YaHOO!


Congrats on making the leap into IMAC. Albeit I don't fly IMAC, our club hosts (and has hosted) 2 events a year for them for the past few years. I've never met a greater bunch of pilots that are so friendly and so enjoyable to work/fly with. Truly a family friendly event. Here's a link to the 2012 event at the field.

Thank you. I was out flying it today. The plane flies great. I have had quite a few problems with my DLE-35RA but not with the airplane at all...

I am in the process of converting this airplane to EP. Hacker A60-6XS V2 running on 10S 5000 mAh batteries.

I am tired of the issues with the DLE 35RA. It does run better now that I replaced the carb. but I'm tired of messing with it. I think the electric conversion will be a great solution...

Dang Bob, sorry to hear about the 35 giving you fits. Going to EP is fine as long as you still have enough to make the IMAC routine. We only have 1 guy that uses EP for IMAC but does pretty well. Looking fwd to hear how it all turns out.

Hi Dan,

It will be interesting to see if I can get 10 to 12 minute flight time, doing (2) sequences. I should be able to get out and give it a try in the next couple weeks.

The conversion is very expensive; especially the ESC and batteries.

I'm now looking at either the Hacker A60-6XS V2 or the Rimfire 1.60 63-62-250.

Hi Dan,

I have also started a discussion thread for the electric conversion.
