If I decide to wait for the orange one it's going to be around 8 weeks delivery time. Arrrg decisions:P

It's the white on the top of the wing that contrasts so well with the black on the bottom. I don't think the trim color is critical.

With that said, if you want orange as the trim color I'd suggest getting that built for you. You'll be extremely happy when you open the box.

There is no manual yet, we will probably do a suppliment type for the other CARF 2.6 Extra, most is the same.
Hit points are 5" Spinner. Wheels 4.5" on tarmac or really short grass, 5" on longer/rough grass. The spats are the same as the 3m so will take either wheel. 32oz Main tank. Arms 1.5" IMAC 1.5 and 1.75 3-D.
Balance even with the heavy engines comes out rearwards, so everything as far forward as possible. With Cans you can move the rudder servos forward more than pipes.
Balance seems to be 3.5-3.75" (90-95mm) back from the tip LE. (thats just infront of the wing tube with wings off)
Elevator mix (varies with balance) but a good starting point is 8% up with left and right rudder, tune from there.

The Wheel spats need a little packing to get them to sit vertical (there is a wood part in the kit to feather and make a wedge) Other than that, construction is a breeze.

Yes, you're right and I'm going to stick with the orange scheme.

@Dave: Thanks for the nice summary!

Regarding wheels I'm going to try these:

A bit on the heavy side and hopefully they will fit under wheel spats since they look rather wide.

Regarding cans/pipes, MTW and Krumschied have complete sets for several Comp Arf Extras. Is the Extra 330sc similar to any of the other extras regarding headers/muffler installation? Would make things alot easier if so.

Edit: I can see that there already is a canister mount mounted in the front (nice feature! ). Could someone please measure the distance between the two canister holes (centre to centre) and the diameter of the holes, I would be very greateful!

The holes are 70mm dia approx 110mm between centres

The spats have at least a 2" wide opening...

Found a nice clip of one, looks very nice in the air and you can clearly hear the nice "squeal". It does seem to handle snaps really well

Carf Extra 330 sc 2.6 (5 min 44 sec)

Nice job Zeev, looks great! Can't wait for mine to arrive!

Received my spinner today, but spinning it up on the balancer shows some wobbling... Same thing with my other Mejzlic spinner I had for my 50cc. Well I have just finnished my test stand for the engine, will have to see if the spinner wobbles on the engine.

anyone knows if a da120 will fit fine inside the cowl or it's necessary to cut it so the ignition caps can fit?
