3D Hobby Shop 57" Extra 330 SC -Build Thread-

Hi all 3DHS fanatics! My name is Jeff Mitchell.

A little while back I was asked by Mr. Ben Fisher himself to document the build of the new 3DHS -Yellow- 57" Extra 330 SC. I am excited to share the build will the 3DHS community, and all who have taken an interest. I will work hard over the next week (or so) to document the entire build and include some good close up and intimate pictures of the awesome new 57" SC. I can already tell you the kit is the usual amazing 3DHS quality we have all come to expect, and this airframe will no doubt be another winner. Hat's off to Ben and Scott for another job VERY WELL DONE. Thanks guys!

Please feel free to chime in at any time and comment or ask questions. Want a close up picture of a particular detail? Just ask!


Again here are the basic specs for the 57" SC:-Wingspan 57"
-Length 57" w/ spinner
