100cc Extra 260 IMAC Competition Aerobatics Build

One of my favorite airplanes is the Extra 260.  I have many in various sizes.  This is my AeroWorks 100cc Extra 260; which I use in IMAC International Competition Aerobatics events.

Wing Span 104 inches (8.6 feet)
Wing Area 1867
Weight 27 pounds
Engine 3W 110cc CS Gas, 12.8 HP
Servos (9) Hitec Digital (Programmable)
Power Distribution Smart-Fly Power Expander Pro

3W 110cc Competition Series (Twin Cylinder) Gas Engine

I decided to power this aircraft with the 3W 110cc Competition Series Engine instead of the DA-100 because of the horsepower it produces.  The 3W 110cc engine produces 12.8 horsepower; which provides unlimited vertical for hovering and punching out of any maneuver.

Electronics and Flight Controls

The electronics and flight controls have become very sophisticated.  Programmable servos, multiple servos on all flight surfaces, remote receivers, optical engine cut-off, backup and fail-over systems and more…

Each of the (9) servos are connected to a dedicated receiver channel.  This provides the ability to fine tune each servo.

The Smart-Fly Power Expander Pro provides power distribution, regulated voltage to all servos and fail-over power (battery) management.
