I'm designing a 60" profile Extra 260. I want something to get me comfortable with flying a bigger (no so easily repaired) balsa wood model down on the deck without the worry of crashing. I want it to fly like my foamies. The things that I like most about the small foamies is the destroyability and repairability of them. I have no problem crashing a brand new foamie. As a matter of fact, it is kind of fun. Not fun because I have to repair it, but, fun because I was probably doing a maneuver that I had either never attempted before or never have been able to perfect.
If I can design and build a balsa model that is cheap, light and a quick to build, I think it will be a hit. I hope to be able to put one together in less than a week of evenings. That way if I auger it in, I won't be upset. Low level crazy 3D maneuvers will be allot easier to learn without the "fear factor".

Maqsood, how many servos are you running in your Fliton Extra?
