Default Fliton extra 260

I just bought one of these. I was wondering if anbody has one and how they like it. I bought the combo from fliton with the hacker 30 28. I will be using tp extreme 2070 3 cell lipo.It looks like a real nice plane can't wait to get it in the air. Tyler

I am looking at getting one too. Do you like it? what motor/esc did you end up putting in there - what servos?

Got one a week ago from a buddy of mine. He GAVE it to me!! Now he's regretting it because after a couple quick mods I've got this thing flying like a champ!!

After just 3 flights, this birds already my #1 favorite of my fleet. This is my first aerobatic style plane, and it's just a blast to fly!! Very forgiving to a aerobatic rookie like myself. It flys like it's on rails and does EXACTLY what you tell it to do.

I absolutely LOVE this plane!!!!

Looks like some fairly good weather this way tomorrow. Hope to get some more practice doing aerobatics. I've got down knife edge passes, loops & rolls (of course), and a very crappy Lomcevak.

Plan to do the "Waterfall" which I've mastered on the sim, should be fun to try. I also did my first inverted complete pattern. That was easy and fun to do.

I modified the main gear as the fiberglass stock one had some cracks in it. Here's some pics of the work. All of $4 worth of aluminum from Home Depot! The pic on the cowling is of my wife when we took a ride in a 1941 Waco bi-plane this past June. Super Goober is her nickname..... hey, she came up with it before we ever met, so don't ask me!!

I got mine used with "FlightPower EVO 25c" 2170mAh , for some reason he had (1) 11.1v 3cell and (1) 14.8v 4cell , hacker A30 10XL , and a X55 pro ESC
Told me that plane was flown twice with the 11.1v battery which had velcro on it , 14v one has never been used. My first flight with the same 3cell , plane was WAY too Tail heavy and tht battery does not last 5 min.
Since I have used a 3300mAh 11.1v and 3 1/2 OZ lead weight in the nose, and the plane flys "level" . Any clue what is wrong with this plane ?
