The pricing will be right around 1,700. $1,700 or just a tad less I would say. They are produced now and each size will just keep coming in from now on. There is a container full of 35% and 30% 260's on the water that will be here by next week. The 33 and 40% should follow soon after.

Flight report and vid will follow! I have the in-laws in town this weekend, so not alot of progress. I did manage to mount the firewall using Hysol and also installed the elevator servos, arms and linkages. Needed one 3" extension for the outboard servo which I secured with heatshrink. Also will use (4) 3" titanium pushrods which I do not have. Craig

Re: Aviation Models 40% Extra 260 Build thread

were the holes for the control horns predrilled or did you have to measure and locate them yourself? Also, do the instructions give you basic measurements or how much shorter the right side of the firewall has to be than the left to get the desired amount of right thrust? I don't know why the don't just do that part for you and have you add proper length standoffs?! It's what 99.9% of every other ARF manufacturer does...
Still, it looks like it willbe a ton o' fun once you do finally get it done!

Re: Aviation Models 40% Extra 260 Build thread

I drilled the horn holes myself. It only takes a couple of minutes and gives you the option of using various styles of horns. The plane did come with what I call rocket city style horns of nice quality. The right thrust is already built into the motor box. I like to space my firewall so I do not need to use standoffs

Jeeum.....who you tryin' to fool! I was about to ask you if I could hire you to finish this one up for me. That is the ONLY chance I will have to maiden it at the Nall
