I got 4s 30C turnigy 2600 packs for my slick/VR1 , I imagine 2x of them would fit the 330SC 57 just fine.

Wind was calm enough for a few packs before sundown, hatcam was out for a couple of those flights. It's just fun nonsense, apparently this plane is bringing out my old favorite hotdogging maneuver of busting through low to pull up into a short upline to violent tumble. It does allow an amazing amount of tumble control, manage the throttle properly and you can hang there for a long time. Methinks it's about the best tumbler I've seen, I like how it presents them.

Anyways, it's all in the vid. It's in HD if you want to click through to Vimeo...

57" Extra 330SC - Hucking Snow 2010 (6 min 52 sec)



...as video is showing, the Scorpion SII-3026-710 and 14x7 prop is providing an absolute ton of off-the-line thrust and a surprising amount of horizontal boogy. I could prolly extend flights even further with another propping down, but the current flight of 7 minutes per pack is great as it is (4S 4000). I'm super happy with how this plane is flying.

Arron,

I always get a kick out of the places you fly. They seem like they're designed to snatch your plane out of the sky.

Nice touch with the air raid sirens in the back ground.

Motor Decision

Can anyone comment if Reaper plans on making more of the GR45 motors. I noticed on their web site that they are getting Version 2 of all of their motors. If they will have a GR45 will it be the same as Version 1?

Was also looking at the Hyperion and Scorpion motors that were listed in the post as well. Since it is winter in MI I have a while before I need to purchase.

I see all of the smaller V2's are in stock so you may want to email them to see if they have a time line for the GR-45 and larger.

well, I'd like to say that my tree record is clear, but it's not the case. I get away with it 99% of the time, but alas

...this plane has actually tagged a tree. Loud "thwack" as I struck a tree coming back up the vertical on a rolling loop. A half inch cut under the wing was happily the only evidence of the incident though.
