I get 5-6 mins on the 1000s and I prefer a very light setup for my style of flying..
I prefer light setup also. I will probably get the Extra and the power combo in the next few weeks

I have tested the Extra330 with 3s 850mAh Hyperion Li-po battery and i get 4-5 mins, it flies great, hovers easily and very little wingrock if any. I also did some modifications on the battery access / hatch, servo location, control horns location, etc. Will post some pictures soon, stay tuned

I had a blast building a VA Extra330 recently and i opted to build or setup the plane slightly in a few different ways. Between day job, family and brutal northeast weather, i have not got a chance to maiden it yet other than just hovering it around inside the living room .....this baby is easy to hover

Enjoy.....

Maiden was an uneventful one! Recommended cg on the manual makes the plane flys more of like a sport plane, which is a good setup for maiden. On the second flight, i moved the battery further back and the extra becomes an awesome small 3d plane. Very agile and manueverable yet flys so smooth on low rates. Great people behind awesome planes....can't beat that!!!
