    I have a friend that's involved with it. I don't own the plane and other than my friend, I have no connection with the company. However, I really want this plane! I think they will be here soon.

    Heh I also spotted the bird yesterday on the site and asked the manufacturer about it. Apparently it was coinsidence that I stumbled onto the site right as they were putting it up. Still in test phase and going into production soon it seems. I think it looks awesome!!! Outta be a great seller if it performs anything like the Katanas. I love it! Can't wait to see more on it.

    It looks like it could outfly the Katana, but there's only one way to find out. The price is $149 and the first shipment will be here in a month I think. Here's the URL: http://www.topmodelproduction.com/Extra260-P.htm It looks like there's a vid, but I'm having trouble with it, the website is fairly new, so maybe they don't have it up yet.

    Looks great. That should be a very nice flying bird. RCMANIAC, I'll bet the only limitations on torque rolls will be the pilot!

    Nah looks pretty standard to me? Looks like it's got most of the things the Katana's got going feature wise too. Nice servo lead channels the works. I couldn't get the video to work either so maybe it's not uploaded yet. Let's hope they get one going so we can see if this is worth fussing about.

    Video will be done soon hopefully. There were more features added to final version like winglets, servo extensions, wheel pants, sullivan style tailwheel and graphics. Also a 2 piece wing with single internal wing bolt, no tabs.

    When in doubt, always get a Mojo. In this case the Mojo 60.

    I've seen Saito's on lots of .40 profiles, but that's a whole lot of motor for it as it's pretty light airplane.

    Sorry, deathspiral, I didn't email you as your order was one of the only one ordered offline. My fault. I just sent email updates, sorry I missed you.

    The planes just arrived to the port and first thing Monday morning I'm heading over to the port and hopefully pick up the container and bring back to our office which is only a few miles away. We are going to try our best to get them in the mail by Wed. But if not, then early next week.

    I sent all updates to all pre-orders and updated the website. If you didn't get an email, then pm me your email address.

    Also our phone number is on the website you can call 7 days a week 9am to 7pm if you have any problems with your order. Also a webform that goes directly to our support blackberries. And of course email. It's very difficult not to get in touch with us if you have a problem.

    RE: TMPro USA Extra 260 Cool!!

    Are there any landing gear options?
    That wire LG looks el-cheapo for sure.
    poss CF or even dural
    Does this plane have a habbit of
    tip-stalling? Looks like it would.

    RE: TMPro USA Extra 260 Cool!!

    The landing gear wire is by far the best ever made. It will NOT bend. It's the best spring steel I've ever seen, even better then the V2 steel. As far as CF it's the worst thing you can put on a profile, it looks pretty but lasts about 10 landings before it cracks. If you don't like the looks and the great function of the wire gear you can always put some tetherite on it, but there is no reason. Profiles are not for looks by nature, they are for great flying. If you want scale looks, then go with a scale plane.

    Tip stall at 4.25 lbs? No, it will not tip stall.

    Next week when they start shipping, the customers will do all the talking. For now we only have the pics and a couple vids that were made that do the talking.

    RE: TMPro USA Extra 260 Cool!!

    I own 2 3D profiles right now, I know what there for.
    Are you calling this plane 3D? Both mine seem to have
    more wing area & a thicker wing , at root & tip. Also
    as someone said the fuse looks thin. Has it been tested
    for Extreme G manuvers? Our is it one that gets sold
    awhile, then we start seeing threads about the fuse
    breaking in half. Its been known to happen from
    unheard of , unproven sellers. At least Ive never heard
    of this brand. $150 is high, wonder if its worth it??
    FYI weight has nothing to do with tip stall, its in the
    wing design. A 2lb electric can tip, Quad taper wings
    can be good for tippping.

    RE: TMPro USA Extra 260 Cool!!

    Talk to some TMPro Katana V2 owners, there have been plenty of them planes sold as far as quality. This plane is made the exact same way but upgraded with some other cool features and shaped like a 260. The Katanas have sold thousands worldwide. This company is not unheard of.

    The plane is designed for 3D and pattern, thus the thinner wing. It will track much better then the Katana V2, but the V2 will 3D slightly better. It's a give and take in the aviation world. If you want a combo plane, this is your bird. If you want 3D and only 3D then go with something else.

    As far as 150 being high, sorry but this is not a low end ARF. Look at the features and compare the price to the Fusion at $189, Mojo at $189 and Bad Boy at $159. Even the Katana V2's have sold for the longest time at $159 but have just recently gone on sale.

    And yes, there have been 2 planes flown in the US and prolly 10 of them flown overseas for testing and everything we could throw at it, was thrown at it.

    Any "combo" design that Ive seen doesnt

    do either 'combo' type flying worth a darn.

    Its more of a sales type gimmic to appeal

    to more flyers who dont know any better. PERIOD.

    A expert flyer can make the lousyest plane

    look good, if they want to.
