Maiden Flight Of My 3DHS 72" Extra 330

I finally maidened my new gasser ... my new "pride and joy" 3DHS Extra 330.


My setup:

DLE-30
Hs-985 servos all around
Smartfly Dual Reg
Turnigy BEC for Ignition Regulator..
Three Thunder Power 1300 2s lipos.

It was a colder than usual day, and I was battling a nasty cold .. but I had to fly it.


I was so nervous as I never have built a gasser myself. After getting the engine started and basically tuned I took off into a nice headwind. It flew PERFECT. No trim and the CG was right on the money.


It flies absolutely incredible. Tracking in knife-edge was superb and flew precision very well. It also 3D's like a maniac ! Rolling loops and snap rolls were easy and rolling harriers were smooth as silk.

Tomorrow I am going to take it for a couple more flights after school ...

The key was to prime the engine ... after I did that a couple times it started up like a champ.

Its a very nice running engine, it idles very well.
