    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    Would this plane be better with glow or gas, with that new Saito 2.20, will it be a gas hog? Thanks!!

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    It sure wouldnt be cheap and from my experiences with my saito 100, it would bbe dounright expensive, I pay the price on my funtana 90 that I fly soo much and I am only 15, 30% is too darn expensive!!!

    but the da 50 would be cheap fuel wise, I wonder how much the evolution is and whats it's weight and thrust compared to the DA 50?

    anyone know

    Bore: 42 mm (1.65 in)
    Stroke: 42 mm (1.65 in)
    Cylinders: Single
    Engine (Only) Weight: 1820 g (64.42 oz)
    Crankshaft Threads: M10 x 1.25 mm
    Benchmark Prop: Mejzlik 24 x 10 @ 6,900
    Prop Range: 22 x 10 - 26 x 10
    RPM Range: 1,000 - 7,500
    Fuel: Oil w/Gasoline mix 1:40
    Mounting Dimensions: 243 x 78 x 140 mm
    HP: 8.5 hp @ 6950 rpm
    Cylinder Type: Ring
    Starting System: Electronic Ignition
    Carb Type: Walbro
    Crank Type: Ball Bearing

    and heres the DA50 gasser specs:
    Displacement: 3.05 ci. (50cc)
    Output: 5 hp
    Recommended Props:
    2-blade: 22x10, 22x12, 23x10, 24x8.
    3-blade: 20x10, 20x12, 22x10 narrow.
    Weight: 2.94 lbs (3.13 lbs with stand-off mounts)
    Length: 6.7" (170mm) (total with stand-off mounts)
    Bore: 1.6771" (42.6mm)
    Stroke: 1.3779" (35mm)
    Reed valve.
    Desert Aircraft auto advance electronic ignition.
    Exclusive Desert Aircraft designed cylinder, piston, rod and crankshaft.
    CNC milled 7075 alloy crankcase.

    But heres the thing, the DA is $50 cheaper, but as you may have noticed, the evo has more power, but this engine will come out in may, but the plane will be out for a month before the evo!! Plus, we already know that the DA50 is reliable, and we know nothing about this evo

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    I think that the 58 would push the wing-loading up too far. In the MVVS line (manufacturers of Evolution) the new 45cc engine would be a better choice. The 45 is a pound lighter than the 58 with a wide, flat power curve. Factory numbers suggest that this engine is competitive with other European 60s!

    I only wish they gave this plane an 80" wing span so it would qualify for "Big Bird" and IMAA events!

    I always thought that 1/4 scale and up did qualify for IMAA legal size (?)

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    So u are gonna compete with it?

    anywais I think I will stick with the DA 50, I seems to me that lighter is better, I think that it could pull the plane around very well for how much the plane weighs, I never really liked the look of the evolutioin engines and thought that they weighed alot and were underpowered.

    do you think that Hitec's 5645 digitals will be enough for this monster.

    The Extra 260 had a wingspan of 24' so at 78" the scale is 27.08%

    Horizon doesnt want to admit that the evolution gassers are made by MVVS, cause when I called them they were getting mad, becasue I said they were MVVS, and he said that they were evolution factory, made not MVVS

    the scheme on the h9 is col enough, it could of been a little more agressive though like on the show time 4d, I dont want to think abotut the sfg's though.

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    My airplanes are like the lamborgini of the industry. They are for the select few willing to pay the extra price for an excellent quality airplane made especially for the customer in any color they choose. Special care and consideration is put into building my airplanes with extreme attention to details. So if you choose to have an airplane at a lesser value know that you get what you pay for.

    RE: Extra 260 27% Hangar 9er

    BANCHE: If lighter is better, why not cut off at least a pound or more and go with an OS 1.60FX or Moki/Mark 2.10? They would save a lot of money, a lot of weight, put out plenty of power, and the plane would certainly land better and perform the slow 3D stuff much better. The DA50 is probably better suited for planes with a bit more wing area. Also, the Extra 260 was the plane Patty Wagstaff flew until the mid 90's in competition, and that is the plane she donated to the Smithsonian. See attached pic.

    BARCC: Are you experiencing technical difficulties, or trying to exaggerate your point (triple post)? You are probably right that MVVS makes the engines, but perhaps Horizon has tweaked the design a bit? I don't know anything about this, but I do have an idea how much it would cost to set up an engine manufacturing plant. It would be much cheaper to design an engine and hire a manufacturer to produce it.

    ROMANBM: You are absolutely correct, excellent-quality and special consideration command a premium price. To be honest, I wonder how you can afford to sell your planes at your price given the quality of the craftsmanship and the amount of work and time going into each one. I have owned a couple of custom-built planes and they are truly head-and-shoulders above the high-quality ARFS I have owned. I have a custom-built 27% Cap 232 with 1250 in^2 wing area, ZDZ40, that weighs 12lbs and is a tremendous plane, lands slower than many trainers. It is 2.5# lighter and 300 in^2 larger than my Hangar 9 Cap 232 was. It had a tremendous amount of power but was scary to land.

    This plane looks very nice and would be quite a performer. It has great lines and probably won't have many coupling problems. I like the plug-in wings and hatch. Hangar 9 is now getting much better at building light planes, and this one will probably continue the tradition.

    Anyway, I look forward to some flight reports!

    Brett

    Greetings,
    I think most people are thinking Gas because of the cost of running a large 2-stroke, compared to regular gas ( even at todays prices ).
    I am thinking of putting a F.P.E. 2.4 in mine when it comes in.........should be plenty for "Sport Flying", and economical too.

    It seems to me that anything 3lbs and under is fine......since the DA 50cc is 2.94lbs.
