Hi Guys... I'm new to FG so please excuse this post if it's already old news... I have an Aeroworks Extra 260 Freestyle (30CC) with no Cowl and it's been 9 months since I contacted them to get a replacement. Is this typical for Aeroworks??? I would be grateful if someone could tell me where to get one. Hell... I'm almost considering making one.

Thx.

Hello

Does anyone have or know where I might buy a full set of plans for a Pica 1/6 scale Spitfire (Kit RC-1).

Thanks

Dwight

Being a 3D guy I wasn't expecting much from the new TwistedHobbys and RCFactory StepOne Trainer. But now I can say that I am flying this thing as much as I am my 3D foamies! This plane is an amazing flyer, it's fun to glide around like a sailplane (which results in a long flight time). It does inverted loops insanely fast, almost like waterfalls! And when I put my FPV camera on the plane it was almost like it belonged on the StepOne, there is a perfect spot on the front of the wing for a UMX FPV camera, and since the motor is in the back the camera has a perfect view. Another huge plus about the motor being in the back of the StepOne is how much more durable it makes it! Using the same 3 layer foam concept as the Twisted Racer Series planes, it makes the plane just about indestructible! A very well thought out design by TwistedHobbys and RCFactory!

The Kit can be found here: https://twistedhobbys.com/th-34-epp-step-one-trainer/

I am running a 2s 450mah with the TwistedHobbys StepOne power combo which has everything you need to get the plane up in the air except for RX, battery, and radio.

I had the pleasure of driving by this store purely by accident and stopping in as I am an avid modeler and seeing what products they sold. I will have to say I give the a thumbs up for there knowledge regarding cars, airplane, and quads. They have a full line of all the major brands of products and are friendly and will lead you to the product you are looking for. Not just tell you they are on the back wall of the store and point to them. I am really happy I found this store and wanted to pass the news to my fellow modelers.

Here's the latest design from Cody Wojcik and the Twisted Hobbys crew. It's all EPP and it puts a smile on your face from the minute your box arrives. Epic looks and character are highlighted by the extreme performance you've come to expect from all Twisted Hobbys offerings. The antics achievable on this plane are epic. Depending on your transmitter, you can do flaps, spoilerons and you can get really tight loops from adding an elevator to flap mix with a couple levels of throw should you be able to assign it to a 3 position switch. This one is a must have for the Twisted pilot and WW1 fans alike. If you need support or have general questions, please just send a PM through FG and I will get notice by e-mail and respond quickly.

Stay Twisted my friends,

I picked up this Used Extra 260, Hangar 9 35%. I am at least the third owner of this plane. I pulled a lot of vinyl off, sent the engine to DA, replaced all the servos, leads, batteries, switches. Replaced the cockpit floor and pilot figure, landing gear and pants replaced with carbon fiber. Started some patching of the covering. Overall the plane is in fine shape but I am working on this to start into IMAC.

This is the latest and amazing airframe that is under its final testing from Redwingrc.com. This thread will be my build log as I assemble and test the 100cc Extra Prototype. I will give you fair warning that this build log will be an on going thread and will be used for questions and comments of this plane or redwing rc planes only, please if you wish to talk about other items please start a discussion page. thank you in advance.
I will be adding pics and videos as I progress with the build. I am building this on a budget and all parts are not on hand as of the start so i will have times of the build that will be on hold until either parts arrive or funds allow parts to be ordered as I am sure everyone on here knows that battle lol.

So to start off this thread I was to give you my back ground. I was recently covered on the redwing rc weekly news letter (which i attached the link below) this can give you an idea on me and what I do.

I have attached the photos that I took the day I received that awesome white truck (Fedex) to the door! I could not wait to get my hands on this plane. I had my little side kick helping me as my measuring stick lol.
