The 260 is no more. I got busy while trying to practice or the XFC at the last minute and forgot to fuel it up.

Just test flew my new Carden 40% 330. Flies great. I can start practicing hard for the DL Masters now.

Sorry about your crash. I am Roman the guy who fixed the Von Extra 260 in Venice and built your Von Extra 260 do you remember me? , any way I built the 35 % for my own and I have a lot of fun doing this .I changed a little here little there of the structure in fuse
and the size of ailerons . they are large now for better 3D . so if you have some advice for me I will use it .

thanks Mike

The best advice I can give Roman is remember to fuel it up before you fly.

I'd check into JR servos! <G>. Seriously, it sounds as if the servo throws are not matched. Are you using a Matchbox? Sounds like you may need to.

I cant say for sure if 1 8611 will be ok on rudder or ailerons on the 35% 260. I think it'll be borderline.
