3DHobbyShop 108" Extra 330LT

New toy from 3DHobbyShop, 108" Extra 330LT, currently on display at the 2014 WRAM show.

The plane gets its obvious pedigree from the legendary 103" Extra 330SC, with some updates to the aerodynamic package to make it a little sharper in some maneuvers, and obviously a fancy new scheme. The goal was to improve tracking, increase roll rate and snap performance... generally tweak a few aspects of an already excellent all-rounder. We're still flight testing (though that was delayed due to absurd amounts of snow), but it is all looking very positive.

The Red/blue/white scheme will be one option, we're still deciding between blue/yellow/white and the black/yellow/white. Scheme designed for obvious high visibility, long lines for a classy look and to help orientation/judging, along with a little bit of flair because that's just how we roll. Anyways, in flight it does all the design goals that were set for it, it certainly is high-viz and solid orientation... hope you guys like it!

Takes all the same engine options as the 103" Extra, though the fuse and cowling is a little larger to more easily accomodate the DA-120. Being 3DHS it comes with the full lineup of carbon pieces (landing gear, wing tubes, etc), sexy embroidered cloth wing bags, and I think a carbon spinner (need to confirm, though I'm pretty sure).

Will update the post with more details, but will start with this...

Wingspan: 108" including optional tips
Yellow paint for spinner: Krylon Sun Yellow
(I know, lengthy spec sheet, right? )



...fun times ahead!

I like the scheme. All sharp edges, looks super aggro, yet not confusing in the sky. Sadly I can't fly a 108" plane, lol.

That black and yellow scheme is particularly nice. Hope you migrate that down to one of the sizes I might dare to fly at my current skill level.

I like the black too. If the white was replaced with silver, that would look sick.

Notice the wing tip. Looks like it is finished off with a rounded
screwed on piece. SFG's will also be included. Very nice touch.
Wheel pants are sweet, the gear is painted and so is the spinner to
match! Amazing looking plane!
