Boss that would be a great idea. You know I'm just dying to cut another one out. I'm going to try to shave at least two ounces on the next one. Post the plans so I can get to cutting

Boss,
If you've got enough power, try scaling the 330 up to 39" and using a full flying stab.
I did this to my second one and love it. A little "floatier" and quicker in pitch.

So you did like it better huh??( makes sence) Thats a great idea because I want to add an extra servo for the aielrons and the bigger air frame will be sweet around 16-17oz. That will match my set up just fine. Ok you talked me into it. I'll post some pics of the build. Even tho there isn't much to it.

Ok guys...herre are the plans to the 330 that I did to make building it a little bit easier...it has a 36:" wingspan. It could be done in 6mm as well as 3mm.

Same here Bahamadude, my skills have improved a lot since I built this plane. I mean I've tried to hover and do other 3D stuff before but I just couldn't get it right. Since I've flown the extra 330 I've been able to hover 2 of my planes and my confidence level has shot up! Thanks to all the guys for publishing the "free" plans. Oh and I'll start on a new build with Boss's plan this weekend, and Boss your right, this plane can handle some abuse as I've abused the out of mine and it still fly's great

hi
im new to this thread but i have been watching it closely i have just made the airframe of the original 3dbatix.com's extra 330 and i ilke it what i did differently was add some tabs on the airlerons to speed up roll rate like the NAKITIS ANIMAL .

and it looks quite nice will be adding electrics later on today hope it flies aswell as use have said

Looking good Boss, you know I'm going to have to buy some depron one day. Planes look so much nicer and the graphics look better. I know what your talking about with the winds. We're having the same winds up my way today. Haven't started on the new build yet, still finishing up a 43" zagnutz. Should be able to start cutting tonight.
