Extra 260 from E-flite

Details

The Extra 260 3D 480 ARF is one of the first E-flite® planes to use a new construction technique that eliminates unnecessary weight without sacrificing any strength. This super-lightweight construction, combined with its generous wing area, results in exceptionally light wing loading. Plus, its firewall is designed to accept E-flite’s powerful Park 480 Brushless Outrunner Motor, without modification. It all comes together to give you a fantastic flying 3D airplane without limits and with nothing but possibilities. 

Features:

  • Generous wing area for lighter wing loading
  • Large control surfaces for precise control in high-alpha flight
  • Exceptionally lightweight balsa and plywood construction
  • Designed for use with E-flite’s Park 480 brushless outrunner motor
  • Factory-painted fiberglass cowl and wheel pants
  • Aluminum landing gear and steerable tail wheel
  • Plug-in wings for easy transport
  • Assembles in just a few evenings
  • Covered in genuine UltraCote® and UltraCote Lite

Extra EA-260

The Extra 260 is a one of a kind, hand built, single-seat aerobatic aircraft derived from the Extra 230 and first flown in 1986. Designed by aerobatic pilot Walter Extra based on the layout of the Extra 230, the Extra 260 is a higher performance version of its predecessor with 60% more power and 18% increase in weight. The sole EA-260 was flown by Patty Wagstaff to victory in two U.S. National Aerobatic Championships, (1991 and 1992), and then retired for an Extra 300S. From : "Extra 260". airandspace.si.edu.
