Hobbyking Extra 260 3D EPO Blue (PNF) (DE Warehouse)

Hobbyking Extra 260 3D EPO Blue (PNF) (DE Warehouse)
Hobbyking Extra 260 3D EPO Blue (PNF) (DE Warehouse)

The Hobbyking Extra 260 is a genuine 3D performer. This model is easy to put together and will have you doing knife-edges at your local field within an hour and a half of opening the box!
 
As well as all the servo's, motor & ESC being pre-installed, this model cleverly needs no glue at all to assemble, the tailplane and steering tailwheel are connected by 2 bolts, the 1pc wing simply bolts on under the magnetic canopy. Made from super tough EPO, decals are pre-applied, under-carriage is tough alloy with pre-fitted plastic spats and is another bolt on item. The Lipoly hatch is in the nose for fast battery changes.
 
A combination of low flying-weight, large control surfaces and plenty of power from the pre-fitted brushless motor spinning a large SF prop means a great performer at any speed. The Hobbyking Extra 260, whilst ideal for the 3D flyer on high rates, is also an easy to fly model once set up on low rates, making it a good choice for the sport & intermediate pilot looking to fly some less extreme aerobatics.

Really nice Plane, but mine came without any hardware. Maybe someone can do me a favor and list the bag's content (esp. the screws, lenght, type...). Many thanks!

Hello everyone, I got the extra 260, where you put the battery? on the tip of the plane or on the inner box? and you tell me where is the center of gravity? Thanks to all

Hi :) Have a look on RCGroups search the Threads for (HK EXTRA 260)
 Davide 6 points
Hi, I put the battery on the inner box (under the wings). I haven't calculate the center of gravity but maybe do this tomorrow or next week.

Gianluca 1. You can see the battery bay in the last picture. There is a hatch under the body. 2. C of G is 75mm to 80mm form the leading edge of the wing. I hope this helps

Habe mir die Extra bestellt und scheinbar waren meine Qualitätserwartungen zu hoch, die Ruderhörner an sich sind gut jedoch die löcher zu klein man hat keine Alternative mir ist die befestigung am Ruderhorn zu Labbrig, Ist aus Kunststoff und hat nur eine kleine schraube zum befestigen der Kunststoff reißt Sofort, Sonst Sollte man ein Schraubensortiment Zur hand haben, alles in Allem Preis leistung `= Naja, Hab für 119 Ne Thunderbold mir geholt wo alles bei ist und qualitativ besser alles, mein Fazit, bestellen würd ich mir hier höchstens nur noch einen Bausatz, Bowdenzüge und alles kommen bei mir neu! Lg der Dominic

Even as frame this is a very good price. Top notch quality frame. The servo clevis are not very good and motor is not very powerful. In case you do not worry about adding 4x quality servos and another motor, this plane is advisable. ESC of 30amps seems to be okay. Still 5 starts.. because with other brands you pay more for the same quality EPO frame, but then without anything (motor, esc and servos). My advice in hardware setup: 4x quality servos of 1-11gram 1x quality motor of 80gram minimal to max 100gram. 1100kV or 900kV 4x better linkage (clevis ect) Cool plane...fun plane

Great looking plane, built quality is very good for the price. Assembled in minutes, it flies very stable, no surprises, nice to land because stall is very predictable. Responds very direct to all rudders and ailerons. The roll- rate is insane! 25pcnt expo and 70pcnt D/R worked well for me. Nothing much to say, just brilliant handling and look! Minus one star for the stock motor (currently I am flying it with a 2830 1100kv engine and a 10x4,7 prop i had in spare, unlimited vertical climb, esc doesn't get hot). The stock motor's spinner mount was screwed down with 3 small and one large screw, making the motor run out of balance. Just didn't dare to test it. The landing gear bends even during very gentle landings on concrete. The aileron servos and spars where not glued into the wing. I would love to spend a little bit more money and get the plane out of the box with the motor and landing gear it deserves.

I bought that item and here is my review...

The plane overall quality is good. For the price, provided that you buy a 9 x 4.7 or 9 x 5 propeller for 3 S it works fine (unfortunately not available in DE Warehouse :( and cost 3 euro each at local store). For the price you just have to add your battery and your own reciever and you have a flying machine. There is a good post on rcgroups to get it started on the building and correction proposed. I have my CG at about 9 cm from the front edge of the wing. I'm flying using 2200 mAh flightmax 25 C battery. I did not add any additional weight to get CG at correct place. During the building, I glue the linkage rod to the clevix, reglue the white cone locking the propeller and remove the glue at the back of the motor. For the landing skid I bent it so that the wheels are more far away from each others and it seems to work on the grass of the club. It did not bend when landing (I have to say, that this extra is my second plane after flying a stock skyfun). Taxiing in the grass, must be done with the elevator stick in the taxe off position or the noze will it the grass. I will probably set larger wheels on it. the flight impression is that the plane is quite touchy for a beginner like me even with 50pcnt of expo on all axes except throttle, I will use DR to reduce the throw next time. I can no say much more since there was some wind during

schöne extra! fliegt wirklich super! fliege mit 3S 2200 lipo... motor hat für meinen geschmack zu wenig power... also senkrecht bis zur sichtgrenze ist nicht möglich. ein andere motor, der ein wenig schwerer ist... dann kann man gut auf das blei verzichten. fahrgestell ist schwach. mit fiberglass verstärken, dann hälts auch auf einer wiese. sonst ein super flieger mit grossen spassfaktor!!!

Very good plane, the epo is very strong, finish are excellent, allows almost all the stunts as flying Knife, Hovering an all f3a acro.
I give it only 4 stars because the motor with stock propeller burn after 2 flight with 3s turnigy 2200mah 25c, with a smaller propeller it can work very well.
the servos are quite accurate and the regulator does its job.
must control the bonds and secure the servants of the wings with something.
