Default Precision Aerobatics 48'' Extra 260 Build Thread!

If you have not seen the new Precision Aerobatics Extra 260, you should check it out! You can find them here.

To see the build skip to post #13

I ordered the red one, but they also have a green, and a yellow one.

Here are a few pics of it from the AtlantaHobby site...

Yes, I have everything I need except for the motor, and ESC.

The motor and ESC should be here sometime this week.

My setup will be...

Motor - Thrust 30
ESC - Quantum 40
Li-Po - Dualsky 3s 2200mah 25C
Rx - Berg 7P
Servos - SSV-9320MGs(bigger than the recommended servos, but they are what I have laying around)

First was to install the landing gear, and tail wheel.

I opted to leave the wheel pants off as I often fly off rough terrain.

Default Test Fitting!

OK, I slid the tail feathers on, and taped the cowl on just to test fit everything.

OK, I mixed up a little 5min epoxy to put on the tail wheel, and after I did that, there was still a little epoxy left in the mixing cup, so I went ahead, and installed the aileron control horns!

There are also two other pics below. One is of the little scale touch they did to the cowl, and the other is of the carbon fiber looking claw marks on the fuse...

OK, I got my aileron, and elevator servos installed. It took a little while to do that since the servos I am using are bigger then the ones the plane is made for.

Tomorrow I will, hinge, and install the rudder, and elevator, install the rudder servo, install the pushrods, and drill the holes to mount the cowl.

After that I cant really do anything else until the motor, and ESC come in.

Ailerons are pre-hinged!

OK, I got the pics changed.

I think the reason the pics in the first post worked, and the rest didnt is because the first pics where uploaded by URL from AtlantaHobby. The other where uploaded by URL from the build thread I have going on RCGroups.

Sorry I have not updated here in a while, been kinda busy.

Anyway, I now have everything done, except for installing the motor, ESC, and spinner, which I cant do till they get here!

I added some decals, then got the stab glued in, hinged the tail feathers, and installed all the servo, and linkages.

The pull-pull setup on this thing is super easy!
