60% BH EXTRA, HOW BIG IS TOO BIG ?

I got my 60% Bill Hemple Extra 260 today and this thing was awesome, I expected a big airplane but the 60% gives new meaning to giant scale, the quality of these ARFs keeps getting better and better, the 50% was nice but this One is much nicer, Bill is doing a great job on these ARFs.
Here is is my planned setup.
Motor will be a 3W 342 with cans.
4 JR 8711 servos per aileron
2 JR 8711 servos per elevator half
5 JR 8711 servos on the rudder, push pull setup
1 JR 8611 throtle
1 JR 8611 Choke
TME smoke pump powered from One of the ignition batteries
Powerbox royale
2 R1221 receivers
2 5200 Li Ion Fromeco batteries (powerbox)
2 2600 Li Ion Fromeco batteries (ignition)
Titanium links
Dubro monster ball links everywhere
12X JR radio

That's all I can think of now, I will add more as I go, this is what I plan to do but I am open for suggestions, here is few pics.

Holy Smokes, that is huge. Is that the 50% cowling for comparison ?

Where is the fuse ?

Bodywerks, let me tell you, I was lucky to get my wife to snap those pics, I spent half the day at the mall buying her stuff and I hate malls, for some reason she was in a bad mood today, I don't understand why, I will definitely take more pics.

Joe that's the 50% cowling inside the 60%, this is the first time I get intimidated by a plane.

Re: 60% BH EXTRA, HOW BIG IS TOO BIG ?

I could not imagine how many LV hand bags, Roberto Cavalli dresses etc that thing would cost me but it would ruin my RC budget through until the end of the century I am sure.

Gawd durn it that thing is a monster. You going to need a new and BIGGER SNAPASAURUS TRAILER Elie. If you get it sticker beacthed before you bring it home your wife might not realise the difference mate. That would save you a few sheckles, for sure.


Man did you get any frequent flyer miles from Horizon!!!!! There's some serious nickels in that money shot as well.

That would be my Twin brother.
You see on a day like today, I wanted to look like a poor thing I figured my wife would feel sorry for me and will not bother me but the plan didn't work.

I may need those rims, I tried to fit a 6 Inch Dubro and it's way too small, I am already working on it and hope to get it going soon.

Like I said before and it's true, I spent most of the day at the mall, guess why?
As for the trailer, soon after I got it I decided that it's too small, I agree I definitely need a new One.
17 8711 and 2 8611, 10,000 extensions, switches batteries linkages, servo arms, 12X and the list goes on.

Elie,
I am going to have dash panals made for our 260's. They will look just like the dashes in the carden's. Do you need one made also. It might take about 2 weeks. Call me or send me an email and let me know. We will get some pictures of our 260's and 60% cub up soon.
Thanks,
John
