The Hobbyking Extra 260 is a genuine 3D performer. This model is easy to put together and will have you doing knife-edges at your local field within an hour and a half of opening the box!As well as all the servo's, motor & ESC being pre-installed, this model cleverly needs no glue at all to assemble, the tailplane and steering tailwheel are connected by 2 bolts, the 1pc wing simply bolts on under the magnetic canopy. Made from super tough EPO, decals are pre-applied, under-carriage is tough alloy with pre-fitted plastic spats and is another bolt on item. The Lipoly hatch is in the nose for fast battery changes.A combination of low flying-weight, large control surfaces and plenty of power from the pre-fitted brushless motor spinning a large SF prop means a great performer at any speed. The Hobbyking Extra 260, whilst ideal for the 3D flyer on high rates, is also an easy to fly model once set up on low rates, making it a good choice for the sport & intermediate pilot looking to fly some less extreme aerobatics.Specs:Wing Span: 1000mmLength: 960mm

El tren se ha doblado en el primer vuelo, pero el avin est muy bien montadohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmn0wzBNqJ8
This is crash number five, or six... this is a really cool plane. I installed carbon fiber strips in the fuselage just under the wing. It really helps stop flexing.Update... nose dived at high speed into a gravel drive yesterday. Broke the prop, motor mount came loose, rudder and elevator control surfaces ripped off, and of course smashed the cowl. No other significant damage. This is a tough plane.This plane has a nice finish and goes together easily. The control rod linkages broke immediately, so get some others. It required different hinges as the factory ones broke on the first flight. The worst thing however was the motor. On a 3 cell with a 9x5 prop there was barely enough power for it to fly, let alone do 3D. 'Sadly' mine crashed and I'm happy to not replace it. More trouble than it's worth stock. I believe if you put you own motor, servos etc. in the fuselage would be quite niceI really like this plane, extremely controllable. It did require 1.7 ounces inside the cowl to balance (yikes!) and during the first flight the ESC became so hot it melted the surrounding foam.. a few mods later, it's my second favorite foamy.El avin est bien en general, pero hay tres cosas que te tocar arreglar o cambiar sin dudarlo:
1.- El motor es un asco. Se calienta inmediatamente y hasta el extremo,y le falta potencia. El mio no lleg a quemarse porque no le di tiempo ylo cambi despus del primer vuelo, viendo la temperatura que alcanz en tres minutos y sin apretarle mucho.
2.- El tren de aterrizaje es de la misma calidad que el motor. Se dobla y se suelta con muchsima facilidad. Conviene reforzarlo o cambiarlo por otro ms duro.
3.- A muchos de nosotros se nos ha solcato alguna de las ruedas del tren de aterrizaje en pleno despegue. Revisa las tuercas que sujetan las ruedas antes del primer despegue, o te tocar aterrizar sobre la panza.
Por lo dems, ninguna objecin.Es genial, vuela perfectamente. Tan solo el defecto de tener un tren de aterrizaje demasiado fragil. corregido con unos pequenos cambios que hicesuper avion pas essay encore alors pour la fiabilit de l' electronique???I've seen this thing fly, then seeing the price I just had to have one :)Well the plane itself flies great but the motor is of poor quality with excessive endfloat and sounds like a cement mixer with a brick in it so i fitted a park 480 1320kv with a 9x4.5e prop this also fixes the balance problem also the landing gear is weak so needs upgrade. control clevises had to be epoxied to stop coming loose
