    I think this would be fine, the fuse is strong enough to carry large batterys.
    How big would the prop be? 20" or bigger

    Some may think its out dated and old.
    Without doubt, its an honest, capable, well built , priced well, good looking airplane and its still selling well.
    Have fun

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    I'm thinking the new OS GT33 and this airframe would be the perfect match. Has anyone had a chance to try this combo yet? It's too bad Great Planes quit making the Gene Saucy Extra 300 and the Patty Wagstaff Extra 300 as both of these planes were a little too small for the popular light weight 50cc engines but should be great with the new 33cc OS as well.

    Hmm did not realize they were out of production, have been away for 6 months or so..
    Quite a few other brands that are equially built and available to take 30cc gas now.

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    Hello,

    I have spent the last few days reading all 3587 posts, and still have a few questions, so here goes.

    New to the forum but not to the hobby. I have been flying for over 19 years on and off. I have never had a gasser but I am concidering this one as my first. The local hobby shop offered me the plane with a Evolution 50GX combo at a really good price. I have a couple other smaller electric 260s, and I really love the way they fly. That and cost is what has brought me to the H9 260. Does anyone have any experience with the Evo 50GX in this plane? I know it is 6oz heavier than the DA50 or the DLE55. Will that cause a problem? I have been looking at the Areo Works 260 with a DLE55 as well as the Pilot RC 260 with DLE55, but they are conciderably more money.

    Any advice would be appriceated.

    Thank you,
    Gimp28

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    Mainden mine yesterday powered by a Saito 220 and all I can say is wow. This is the first airframe that required no trim. I always trim at 3/4 throttle setting and as I said no trim was required. The CG was set at 27% and no balance weight was required other than shifting the onboard flight battery (6V) forward to the engine box. Advancing the throttle forward slowly, give a little right rudder and the tail comes up. Tracking on the ground with a slight up elevator command and its' airborne. All controls were set-up for IMAC and I found zero coupling problems. I plan on taking it out again on Friday and hopefully can duplicate the same flight conditions with less wind than I had on Tuesday. One last thing I will point out is the color scheme. If you extend the landing pattern the visual on the airframe is impaired executing the final turn on the landing approach. By this I mean the plane dissappears for a few seconds. You can either three point or wheel land this model and it makes no difference to the plane.

    Get a proper 50cc airframe if using a 50cc motor, its $ well spent, the H9 is kinda small for gas and you will want to step up into another plane right away.

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    I have a saito fg36 gas 4 cycle
    And it will turn an 18 x 8 prop about 7500 to 8000 rpm
    I have a zenoah g38
    And it will turn 18 x 8 prop about 7400 rpm

    If you have saito 220 nitro
    It will have more power than the gas engines with that same size prop
    I am not certain as to how much more rpm you will get

    If you use the dle engine
    You can expect those same numbers with that size prop

    On my plane, I use a da50 cc gas engine
    And it turns a 20 x 6 prop about 6500 rpm
    Top speed of plane is 120 or so
    With wind behind it
    Just to give you idea on airframe stresses
    It has withstood this engine and prop so far for over 30 flights
    Each flight 10 minutes long

    Hope this helps you

    If you use the dle engine
    I am sure your airframe will last a long long time

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    a 20x6?? when it swings a 22x8 normally
    the engine must be detuned to only get 6500 on a 20x8
    this is all wrong
    wrong plane for engine, wrong prop for motor
    wrong rpm ???
    wrong speed 120 MPH is absurd

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    yes, you are right, i was confused.
    for my da 50, i use a 23 x 8 mejzlik.
    it will get about 6500 rpm
    i used a Garmin, and speed was 120 mph
    this was in an extra 260
    27% by hangar 9

    i have a 35 cc nitro engine that i have used 20 x 8 prop, and with this one, i get about 8000 rpm. (OS BGX, 3500)

    120 is absurd, i know, but that is what Garmin says.

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    I did not watch the vids, but from past experience and other similar set ups and RC fliers, I would asume that 75-90 MPH is likely topping out for a 50cc mid wing arobat on any direct prop. perhaps wrong, but the speed racers could easily verify.

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    i was using the Garmin, and it records average speed, top speed, time, distance travelled.
    don't know if when plane was being flown and i did a split s with WOT, on its down turn, maybe that is where it picked up that speed that got that recording. i doubt it does that flying level.

    also, this airplane, i do not believe was intended for a 50 cc. maybe more like 35 or 40 cc

    reason is say so, is that on maiden flight, BTW, when i built the plane, i used the radio, servos, and receiver recommended by H9. on maiden flight, within 2 to 3 minutes of flight, i lost control of bird, i was able to escape with minimal damage. guess what happened, the recommended ailerons servos had stripped gears. telling me, the engine was too much for this bird. anyways, i have flown her now, probably over 30 times since then, and she flies great. i did have to get rid of the evolution 50 cc and i purchased a DA 50, which is way better.

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    Correct
    Its not entirely suitable for any any 50cc on the market
    Its desigened for a 1.6 to 2.2 nitro or a 35 to 40cc light high preformance light gas.
    If you bought a a DA 50, get yourself a full frame 50cc airframe of any choice, you will love the improved difference... ALOT.

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    Horizon did not do the public any favours by selling the 260 and a 50cc gas as a combo, kinda like selling a ford focus with a 5.0 engine as a daily driver..to the average joe.

    anyways, glad you got thru that nonsense, the H9 260 is a good plane, but not suitable for a 50cc for most.
    Your full frame 50cc choices are, but are not limited to, are Extreme Flight, 3D Hobby shop, PAU, Aeroworks for the more better high end stuff.

    EDIT:
    Add Pilot aircraft

    Peakmodels has good offerings, but little parts support, EG aircraft, Slipstream, Red wing, Goldwing, Troybuild, Great planes, RC guys, Top Flite, the list goes on
    A nicer, decent 50cc will be around 600$ and up, once assembled and flown, the extra $ is well spent.
    Do try to outfit it with as best as budget allows.
    If you like them fast with G loading, I would go with the more respected competition style brands,

    EDIT:
    Great Planes has a 50cc Revolver for faster laps if you like.

    I did, and probably a few others worth mentioning, there really is a huge market, that can be overwhelming for someone stepping into better/good airframes.
