I've had the tensor and the extra 260 is much stiffer!! I use to roll the tensor in front of me just to watch the tail twist LOL!! Both are nice flyers though. feel free to ask anymore questions!

Hey guys,

I had gotten one of these to build for the JR indoor. I have to say that this foamy is probably the easiest to put together and flys great. I set mine up with the Cyclone micro and 4 eflight S60 servos and the final weight was 7.4 oz with a 2 cell 480 pack. I think that this is pretty good weight for an arf foamy with all the carbon this has in it. Hope that everyone that gets the 260 will enjoy it as much as I do.

You will love the plane. I think that this flys precision very well and 3d's good. They are awesome to build as everything is done and the build takes about 50 minutes.

I dont think so they are really strong and take crashes well. I watched Peter Goldsmith midair a byp yak at the JR indoor and peter just knocked his aileron servo loose after the fall from 50 foot up.

I would imagine you could build it with out all that carbon, run TimH's kevlar thread truss system and save a lot of weight. It looks like it has two aileron servos also. But built stock I would imagine it would be a very robust yet still reasonably light machine. Which is probably what they were going for.
