Default Composite ARF Extra 260

I have seen these advertised on the composite arf website for about two months now but havnt been seeing anyone talking about them

So has anyone built and flown one yet. If so how do they fly, they look like they would be the goods for IMAC.

I have one of only 2 blue flags that were painted for us. the plane is the straightest flying in my hanger im more of a 3d pilot so i am flying yaks just because i have more control through with it i know that the other 260 is being flown in alot of imac contest and doing very well. but as far as the way the plane sets its such a centerfold layout you would just die to have it in your hanger.

I've flown a 2.6 version, and it is AWESOME. Makes your IMAC flying look like a pro.
