Cool
93" Extra 330SC from Flight-Models(New Video Added)

Time to upgrade the fleet! So I grabbed a 93" Extra 330SC from JB Hobbies:
https://www.jb-hobbies.com/presta/ae...ilver-red.html
Powering this bird with a Hacker Q80-7/Castle Creations ICE 160HV/MKS 777's all around get steering duties. Spektrum 7610 RX. Zippy Compact 6s 5800mah 40c x2 and a TP 3300mah 25c 7.4v RX pack for power.

Comes shipped in a cardboard "coffin" LOL. Nice packing job. Unfortunately cowl incurred some damage in shipping and JB Hobbies was on the ball and shipped a replacement quickly. Thanks Jim! Construction is excellent and build quality is right up there with the best. All hardware is actually usuable which is a suprise as I usually pitch most hardware and use heavy duty everything to ensure no mid flight suprises. I'm still waiting on the only 4" "fan cooling" spinner I could find in the world, a Mejzlak carbon spinner with cooling holes and a fan base plate for max cooling. I also like to go over all the vital spots with some med CA and Hysol around the LG plates and motor mount. This plane will more than likely do a few harrier landings, so just for some added insurance against the walk of shame. These are some tricks I've learned along the way to ensure a long airframe life of abus...er heavy flying. Will post some more build pics and of course some vids as soon as they are available. Planning on having some fun @ SEFF with this plane among others. So if you're attending then come on down and check it out!

As much as I like a P-38, I have to like an Extra better! Although Yamamoto probably would have rather seen an Extra out of his window than a P-38!

Nice looking. I almost bought one but opted for the 93" AJ Laser 230Z with an EME 70cc twin.

AJ's Lazer looks nice. Know someone who has one on the bench with the new Dual Sky 6kw outrunner on it. He's bringing it to SEFF so maybe we can have a go at it. But I'm an Extra fan so I chose this one to replace my old proto 3DHS Extra 300 SHP. Should have it in the air in the next couple of days. Will post a flight report when that occurs.

Maiden today

Flight report: Excellent! Blake got to maiden it today and said it flew just like the ol' 3DHS 87" Extra 300 SHP. Have to check out some ESC settings to tweak it a little more but she weighs in @ 21.5lbs. Will do some slight changes to save some weight but otherwise spot on especially in the servo dept. Will shoot some vid if possible but will shoot a lot @ SEFF in a couple of weeks. See ya there!

Wow. Blake Wilson is a really great pilot for low and slow.. It reminds me of somebody.....

I checked the internet but Blake seems not to be very known. He should be...

The plane looks very good too.

Testing out Dualsky GA6000-8 motor 130 Amp ESC combo

Trying out the new DualSky GA6000-8 motor and 130 amp ESC combo on the 93" Extra. Amps out at 140 with the Carbon Falcon 25.5" x 13 prop on it. Perfecto! Puts out about 6500 watts WOT on the ground. Should unload in flight and keep it within specs. And also have the EDF fan unit installed in the spinner for ultimate cooling. My buddy Dave has tried this setup on his AJ Lazer 93" and he say's it's got better performance than his previous motor. So for a $450 combo you've got yourself a killer 60cc electric setup. Also trying out the spark arrester plug on the ESC. Haven't used one before and never needed it but it came with ESC so I'm quessing it's designed for it. Never had a problem with pitting on my Deans and I'm used to the 50v pop after 7 years of using 50cc electrics! I'll kind of miss it. Makes everyone jump back but me. LOL Have some video soon. Thanks to James @ JB-Hobbies.com for the test setup. Also purchased a DualSky F3A motor for my 2 meter plane to try out. Lots of them being used in the pattern community and I've heard good things especially for the price! I'll post a blog on that setup as well.

He's also a NATS pattern champ so he likes precision even when he flies 3D. I'm sure if I could talk him into IMAC he could clean up there too! LOL That's why I'm sponsoring him for this years NATS as well. I'm sure he will bring home 1st place wood again! If you'd like to check out more vids:

Jack of all trades Master of nothing is more like it. LOL Here's some pics. A 10-32 bolt, some washers, a 70mm EDF rotor, a proper adapter for whatever setup you're using, some centering brass tubing for fan and of course a nice 4" carbon spinner(or adapt whatever size spinner/EDF fan). Have to credit my buddy Bill Clark for the basic idea and it works great.

My buddy Dave is adding an EDF fan in this cut off spinner on his 93" AJ Lazer too. He also tried the Carbon Falcon 25.5 x 13 e-prop and is going to grab a couple more if that tells you anything! Also helps to hog out entrance as large as possible. Make sure you have enough exit area as well. My .02

Really liking the looks of the 91" Slick you linked in the first post! Probably would stick a DA70 in the nose on that one though...
