Prop selection:

APC 12x6E       Excellent overall propeller for 3D, aerobatics and pattern flying. Great thrust and very nice speed. This is our recommended prop for the Extra 260.
APC 13x4E       If you are a thrust freak and want a 3D beast give this prop a shot. Producing over 85.3oz of thrust!! This prop will impress your club mates. Not a good choice for pattern due to the lower speed (low pitch prop).
APC 13x6.5E      This is the higher range prop for the Thrust 30 and an excellent over all prop. Allow high speed manoeuvers with a lot of punch. Adequate airflow to cool down the motor and ESC is required as well as a good battery and throttle management.

We recommend getting a few different size propellers with your Thrust 30 motor. Swapping a propeller is an easy task so you may want to experiment and feel the difference to fit different style of flying. Also in a hot summer day you may want to use a smaller propeller while in a cooler day you can run the motor with a larger propeller.

  • PA Quantum 45 High performance Programmable ESC

The PA Quantum 45 is a performance enhanced Brushless Electronic Speed Controller specifically designed to seamlessly match our Thrust 30™

Our Quantum 45 ESC is a part of our iPAs ("Integrated Performance Airframe-Drive System") offering a superior performance Airframe-Drive solution without compromise, an industry first, giving unparallel performance, reliability and efficiency out of the box.  

This 45A ESC is only geared for one thing: to allow you to execute the most challenging maneuvers with ABSOLUTE confidence in your drive system.
With ease of use in mind, the PA Quantum 45 includes ONLY features that you NEED for performance, minimizing the hassle of lengthy and confusing programming steps. This means less time spent on the ground going through lengthy and frustrating programming features that you do not use. The PA Quantum 45 is also already pre-programmed to match the Thrust 30 motors.

  • PA Lipo V2 pack 11.1V 2200mAh 20-40c
    The V2 Chemistry - The Difference
    The new and improved V2 packs leverage on the proven V1 chemistry to provide superior performance consistency throughout the flight, reliability and trouble free long service life (see note 1 below) in a compact and lightweight format.
    The improved V2 chemistry features a much lower internal resistance provides at least 15% boost in performance over the V1 pack, with an added bonus of a safe charging rate of 2C *.  In other words a much improved punch for quicker acceleration and a quicker cycle time at the flying field, doubling your fun (see V2 datasheet).
    Our airframes designed with the PA Lipos in mind and as such when setting up a PA airplane using our packs means plug and play without the hassle of figuring out the CG positions or modifying the airframe to fit.
    Our comprehensive iPAs (Integrated Performance Airframe-Drive System) tests consist of particular airframe, motor, ESC, propeller and0 battery combination. Change any of those components and you change the model’s specified aerodynamic performance. Don’t compromise! High performance airplane, require high performance set up.
    If you used other brand packs, you have probably experienced a power droop at the last 25% of the flight; this is a typical characteristic found on many ordinary Lipo packs. This is THE Difference you will find with the PA Packs: similar to our thoroughly tested V1 packs, the V2 chemistry provides a very constant voltage throughout the flight (See graph below).
    In the series of tests conducted, we recorded consistent flight performance up to 90% of the flight duration. This means high energy maneuvers could be performed with consistency up to almost the end of the session without being constrained to execute low power maneuvers (less throttle) at the last 25% of the flying session, in order to avoid damage to the battery pack.
    The V2 packs take the limitation of EP flight out of the equation. No more compromises on the mix of maneuvers from start to end. The V2 packs allow you to fly in a similar fashion to the flexibility offered by IC-models within the flight session (See note 2 below).  This opens up a whole new avenue to perform flashy maneuvers such as a high speed snap into a hover followed by a torque roll and finishing off with a hand catch to add a high impact finale to your repertoire.

  • German made CNC machined precision prop adapter.
    It may seem like a minor component installed in your high performance aircraft. However we find it extremely important since the prop adapter affect the final thrust and performance of your motor. Most prop adapters available on the market are prone to be slightly off center creating excessive vibrations that leads to the weakening of glue joints on the motor mount causing pre-mature motor-box failures. We have tested many differing brands of prop adapters without success in meeting our performance criteria (predominantly due to inconstancies in quality and precision). As such, we have decided to design our own custom made prop adapters which are specifically CAD/CAM produced in Germany. We tried many different brands with no success (mainly inconsistent quality and inaccuracy), so we decided to produce these adapters in Germany from the highest grade materials and machining. The adapter is CAD designed by Precision Aerobatics and is made for us in Germany.

  • Thin gauge twisted light extension lead
    This leads are made in the same German factory as our giant scale airplanes HD leads). Due to its fine high quality strings it is extremely flexible preventing RF noises and features low internal resistance. 

  • Set of 4 Carbon Fiber extended servo arms

    Get the most out of your airplane!  If your airplane features extremely large control surfaces, the load on the servos will flex the plastic spline. To get the full movement and maximum throws we offer a set of extension servo arms which are easily installed on top of the supplied servo arms. The carbon fiber arms are stiff and will not flex, allowing you to get the most out of your airplane! 

    When buying a Precision Aerobatics keep in mind that you will need those servo arms for correct linkages geometry as intended in the design.

    • Snap installation
    • No glue required
    • Total weight including hardware 0.4g only!
    • Best solution for maximum throw in 3D funfly models
