Default ** edited**E-Flite Extra 260 3D ARF or PA Katana mini?

** Edited...I meant the eflite Extra 260 3D ARF**
I am looking to get a Balsa plane for the following setup...
E-Flite 480/1080kv, TP2100 3s prolite

I had it on a Mini Funtana but it bit the dust. I have a bigger Balsa(3D hobbies 47" Yak) but want some thing a little more stable at lower speeds and durability is a big factor. I am too afraid to get the yak close to the ground.

I like the look of the Extra 260 3D ARF does anyone have one? Anythoughts about it would be helpful.
I do however like the rugged design of the Katana and am leaning that way.
The hardest thing I am trying to learn is keeping my wings level when doing low harriers with the Yak...I am hoping the straight wing of both these planes would help with that.
Any info greatly appreciated.
Thanx joe

The Mini Pulse XT is not designed as a 3D plane. It is not meant for hovering, harriers, etc. It is more of an aerobatic sport plane. The dihedral in the wing and the lack of control surface size and throw keep it out of the 3D realm and focused on sport flying.

For the power setup you have, the Katana Mini would do you good.

thanks ADChobbystore. I edited the thread...I meant to paste ..."Extra 260 3D ARF"

I was concerned with the durability of another efite because my mini funtana was not durable at all what's you opinion on the 260 vrs. katana?

.....get the Katana Mini. Just a different level in terms of construction quality. I had similar problems with the Mini Funtana X. It is a general construction deal.
