E-Flight Extra 260 ARF

The last plane I spent some time on this week is the Extre 260 by E-Flight. What can I say this thing is going to be one of the best planes in the hanger when it's all done. I picked up a few parts I needed to finish her up, so I am hopeing this next week I can work on it again. The wingspan is 43" and it calls for the park 480 series of motors. The over all weight should come in around 28-30oz. with the batt. I'll be running the 12" prop on it.

Just a quick update on the Extra 260. I took it out last week and got the maiden done on it, all I can say is WOW....this thing is a rocket ship.... I had to trim it a bit and move the cg up in the model, other than that it runs and flys great. I was running a 2.2 lipo in her and I think she loves it. Not a plane for a beginner. I do need to play with the expo just a bit as well as some final adjustments to the throw surfaces. The rudder need to be turned up a bit because I could not get the bird to knife edge, and on low rate, the roll rate is too slow for me, so I will turn the alirons up as well. All and all I think this is a great plane. 43" of FUN...
