Precision Aerobatics Extra 260 ARF

Although I'm not a 3D guy, I have always loved my Addiction after I bought it on impulse, but most of all I love the technology, design, flight performance and quality of PA's aircraft! So, why the Extra 260?

Honestly; I had come across a special sale with Precision Aerobatics and bought a motor combo with the Thrust 30, Quantum 45 Pro and spinner combo. I put it with my other power systems and forgot about it. While recently listing some items in the "RCG Classifieds", I added this combo to the mix.

After 6 days and 126 views no bites so I asked myself, why would anyone look for a thrust 30 and what would they install it in? Crap, the Extra 260 of course..... after looking at it a little closer and saw the price, I clicked on the colors, but the yellow had no sample pictures.

That made me "Google" the 260 and boom there it was in yellow.



Wingspan: 1219mm /48″
Length: 1094mm /43″
Wing area: 490
Flight weight: approx 955gr/33.7oz
Wing loading: approx 9.9oz/sq.ft

Now I just have to wait for Delivery......

Because I already have the Thrust 30, 45 Quantum Pro and spinner my setup will be PA's recommended Integrated Performance Airframe-Drive System (iPA).

My Airframe order included;

Extra 260 ARF - Yellow, Airframe (New production run)
4x Nexatec NXT 70HV servos
Carbon fiber MD size long servo arms
Extra 260 Carbon Fiber Vortex Generators
4x PA V4 Lipo 2200mAh 11.1V 25-50c (by 3 get 1 free)
Thin gauge electric extension lead
VOX 13x5 Electric wooden propeller

Already have 12x6 and 12x7 props

Weighed in at 35.0oz / 992g - 35.5oz / 1006g with wheel pants

PA's flight weight is approx 33.7oz / 955g

Delayed Build.....

The color scheme I was hoping for is discontinued and I was sent this current scheme listed as yellow.... really?

Sure looks white/blue/orange to me. So, I'm trying to find a NIB Yellow/Black older production before I commit. Really disappointed and will probably sell it....
I stand to be corrected..... the bottom of the wing is half yellow transparent film.....

Holy Crap......

Got an email from Adad at PA and he's going to see if PA can put together the yellow airframe components from the spare parts department!

That would be awesome, if not its a great attempt!
