E-flite Extra 260 3D 480 ARF
This plane is an awesome flyer-all around good buy. I'm using it to learn 3d and it certainly has been an excellent trainer (I need a LOT of help). Light, very maneuverable on the ground and in the air. Has no bad habits on takeoff or landings. Like most very light planes, be careful in moderate wind on your downwind turns until you get the feel for it. My only complaint is the covering. I keep tightening it up with my iron and it gets loose again. Included hardware is very good. A good buy! Using Axi 2814-16, TG MG servos, 26x6 APC Electric, 40A Plush ESC, HK ultra small 3a BEC, and 3S 35 & 45C NanoTechs. Good threads on RC groups on this plane.
