Alright, so it's not a helicopter, but hopefully with a little practice, my latest purchase should be able to hover as well .

Meet my new E-Flite Extra 260 3D:

I went with a very basic package: ARF kit, E-Flite motor, Castle ESC and Spektrum 6200 receiver. I'll be using the servos from my Blade 400 (DS75) and hook it up with my DX6i.

Hopefully I can build it this weekend and fly it on sunday.

    I live flying my Sniper3D. I think that my heli skills increased 10x once I started flying fixed-wing.

    But hovering a plane is damned hard...

    It's all built now

    First test flight today was good. I have to give it some expo to calm it down a bit but otherwise I think I'm really going to enjoy this plane.

    And the battery compatibility between the T-Rex 450 is just the ticket!
