Precision Aerobatics Extra 260 - V1 Old production run


Waiting for delivery - PA is putting together the Yellow and Black Scheme, but they have to build the tail and Shuan has to complete the kit Quality Control before Adad can ship it. It will be worth the wait....Started on my RCG Blog

In the meantime I have a complete Ultimate AMR 40 kit arriving Monday.

The Extra looks good, I always wanted to get one as they are a true 3S 2200 plane. Enjoy the build.

Its my 2nd PA, but 1st Extra. I really liked the idea of another 3s because my 3rd PA is the Ultimate AMR...... and I ordered a 4x Pack PA V4 Lipo 2200mAh 11.1V 25-50c with this order.

Control Horn installs.....


I know this is a PA V1 260 which has been around for sometime now however; it's my 1st eXtra! Because of the black covering I had a H*** of a time finding the horn slots especially on the Elevator. I know I was not the only one.... as I searched and came across a few builds, comments and pictures.

Well I finally got to it and pulled through, but too often I'm a bit over meticulous or too careful..... ugh

Motor mount reinforcement....


Straight forward and easy enough, now wait the 24 hrs. Also; went over inside of fuselage joints with diluted epoxy.

Ailerons, Elevator and Motor Box


Completed the Aileron and Elevator Servo installs as well as the linkage.
The extra balsa block for the elevator servo screws came loose even with pilot holes drilled. No problem, glued them back, re-drilled and are solid.
Motor Box lined up and fit perfectly as well as the pins which fit nice and snug!


I waited to install the tail wheel until now...

Close to finishing


All that's lacking are pull-pull cables, cowl, prop/spinner, wheel pants and tweaking the flight mode control throws...

Rudder control


The pull-pull cables are initially done, but need to tighten and fine tune at the servo arms.
