Nice flying there dogga..the 330 is a real favorite of mine...it does everything I want to do and almost makes me look like I know what I am doing,,, Did the rimfire have pretty good pull..?

the rimfire has some good pull w/ a full charge// hard for me to compare
i only have rimfires in all of my planes//ultrafly furious//gp turmoil//hl yak-55
it has the best power on the yak.i guess its lighter???

the extra is now my fav plane hovers better than anything i have///but i think
a little more power would be good

not sure on the weight joe i do not have a scale yet ( not even sure what kind to get) it would be nice to have an idea what all my planes weigh

i use a 3 cell 640 mah batt from great planes. i think the next batt i will get a higher mah///with the 640 i get around 6 to 10 min or so

Dogga..I think I pay about $30.00 for a ounce/gram digital scale at office depot..it will weight up to 4lbs. in .1oz and 1/10gram incriments something like that.. anyway it works great and is almost a must have.
I thought you were liking the 330 from the stuff you were doing in the vid. I am going to do a 3mm. version of it sometime this winter just for grins.

No there arent any plans for it but its very easy to do.
1- Lay out the wing and use a stright edge and draw a stright line across the wing.
2- Trace the servo hole and tab slot for the fuse, also trace the center part of the trailing edge.
3- Measure the wing tips of the 330. From the leading edge of the 540 make a mark so the wing tips on the edge and the 330 have the same measurement.
4- Connect the lines between the wing tips to the center part of the trailing edge.
5- The ailreons are the same at the tips as the 330, but get a little wider as you get closer to the center of the trailing edge.
6- The fuse is the same except the canopy gets moved back a little and reshaped to resemble the edge
7- Take 1/2 inch off the vertical stab and add to the counter balance part of the rudder surface.
8- Shape the rudder to resemble the edge, and your done everything else was left the same as the 330.

These suttle changes really work out to make another great flying foamy. Hope I didn't make it too confusing as it really is very simple. Good luck and try it you'll like it for sure...
