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
-Wing Area 680 sq. in.
-Carbon landing gear
-Wing bags included
-SFGs included
-All hardware included
-Covered in genuine Oracover (ultracote)

Here is the set-up I have chosen:
1) 3DHS 57" YELLOW Extra 330 SC (of course!)
2) Reaper GR45
3) Reaper 85A ESC
4) Castle Creations BEC
5) Hyperion G3 25C 4000mAh 4S Lipoly (Awesome New Packs!!!)
6) Hitec HS5245 Digital MG Servos
7) 63mm White Extreme Flight Elite Spinner
8) Xoar 15x7
9) DUBRO 672 Servo Arms
10) Extensions: 1x18" / 2x6" / 1x12"
11) Spektrum DX7 and AR6200rx
-Did I forget anything?

GB,

The maiden was done by a couple guys that are much faster builders than I. But I am going to work hard to get more pics up ASAP! And when the SC is done I'm hoping local pilot Tyler Hawker will wring it out for some video.

Moving on... CA is GOOD.

I have found this to be a good time to hit all the forward joints with thin CA. Focus on the motor box and landing gear mounting areas.

Looks like you will beat me to the maiden! Nice work!

The carbon tube is a stiffener for the elevator pushrod. See page 9 of the manual.

She called me a nerd for mentioning that. I was just trying to give credit where credits due? (not to mention i didn't want you all to think I had girly hands!)

I dunno... after all, Scott has high heel on his key chain. Maybe it's the thin air in CO out there that makes people a little strange .
