So I'm working on my 330sc now.
Anyone else go 6s 2200 packs on this yet?

I've bought a few 6s 2200's for the PA Extra MX and with the 550kv motor I am using for my 330SC, I'm going to use the same packs.

I'd prefer to let voltage do the work over amperage and both planes are very similar in size and weight.

LOL...But I had to have that 58" Extra MX with all the carbon fiber trimmings.
Got it in Red/black just like the Sbach.

My son and I just had some very bad experiences with the guy that runs P.A. USA.... broken airframes, rudders that had been glued, then shipped out as new, parts ordered that as it turned out, they listed on their web page, but had NEVER had in stock, etc......just a bad situation all around...

I was on fire today

Well my 330 SC was anyway

Doesnt seem to be a good weekend for me. Friday my 6S battery ejected from my vyper in a tumble and today this.

Taking up the Extra for 'one more flight'. Hadnt flown her too hard or anything and suddenly i notice my motor cutting out. i cut the throttle and land deadstick (not my best deadstick landing either) and start to walk over to her on the field when i notice smoke coming out.

Never ran so fast before in my life i think.

As i get there the canopy is melting a little as well as the cowl. ripped off the canopy, battery looks fine, rip it out and throw it and i see a fire under the cowl. got the fire out.

The hacker speed controller was reduced to bits and pieces.

Wondering why of course.

Also thinking what i should replace it with. Another hacker or maybe an ICE

I am running a Reaper GR60. Looks like the motor is ok but will not know until i get a new speed controller of course.

You will LOVE IT!!!

I fly mine with a Reaper GR-60, and since I tend to push the throttle a bit, I use Flightmax 4s 4000mAH 40C packs.... seems to be a great combo, and the batteries are cheap.

OUCHY!!!!

Is the motor box okay??? looks a little charred...and I see one cross piece that appears burnt through...

Go with the ICE.... I have some 55amp Hackers and use them and also one 70 amp, but the only ones I buy now are Castle, unless the ESC comes in a bundle with plane and motor. I just bought an Extreme Flight Edge 540 EXP combo, and an "Air Boss" came with that, but the deal was just one I couldn't pass up.

Well the landing was a little hard so the motor mount plate is busted and i will probably change the top and right side of the motor box as well.

This was a 70 Hacker and only had 20 flights or so on it and i am not sure what i should go with it now. Guess i could go with an ICE 75 or an ICE 100. Difference is 16 bucks or so and weight seems to be the same.

Why not use a CC Phoenix 80?
I use two of them, one in the 57" SC on a Scorp. 3026, and one in my 58" EF extra on a Reaper 60. They work great, never get hot, and are light.

I learned a few things today.
1st lesson don't fly right after a bad aurgument with the wife.
2nd don't bail out of a high focus maneuver at low altatude.
3rd don't mix those two lessons with tight high stress flying locations.
If I would have just used common sense and some forethought I wouldn't have almost snapped the nose off at the bulkhead.
The ultracote didn't rip and probably kept the cowling and innards from flying off.Question how do I fix this and can I keep from pulling off cover? Motor box has not a crack landing gear plate started to seperate but barely from fuse and bulkhead is cracked and broke all over. I would normally just popcycle scab and ca or epoxy the cracks and breaks but this system can kick over 1400watts. Hopefully new motor box can fix without pulling cover. Oh and I can't put up pics because well I lame .

Well......They say that flying is supposed to be a hobby, and hobbies are supposed to relax you, but some times, it just doesn't work out. Next time....take out frustrations with a foamy my friend...

Sorry to hear about your plane.
