Looks an aweful lot like the Foamy Factory Extra, which I did not like. It flew nothing like the Foamy Factory Yak, which is still my all round favorite foamy.

I know what you mean Katman...I have a 3dfoamy.com Extra 300 hanging in my work room..and it was terrible...the 3D Raven was killer tho...I really did enjoy that plane. The Ertra330 from 3dbatix.com is in no way like the 300...if you build one you'll see what I mean..night and day diff...really.I love this plane.
Ben...I can actually fly lots better than that...my camera man catching me at my worst.

I'm sorry that I couldn't read the whole thread, but I must agree that this plane is as awsome as it gets for free plans!

I built mine and got it flying a couple of weeks ago and have had a great experience.
Setup:
Himaxx 4100 w/ Mamba-25 ESC (shhhh... )
TP 1320
Electron 6 receiver
Bluebird 306's all around (4 total) w/ pull-pull rudder

AUW under 13oz, maybe 12

Even though I'm still flying with a basic 4ch Tx, there are no necessary mixes that I've wished I had with other plane designs. I left my control throws to keep it tame and manageable (45 rudder, 40 elevator, 35 ailerons). After flying it once, I was comfortable enough to consider increasing these!

First impressions:
EXCELLENT rudder authority - knife edges are easy to perform with just the left stick (rudder and throttle), no coupling to speak of unless you've got some elevator trimmed in, which will just run it in a large circle. Easily transitions to a hover w/o getting bent out of shape. Haven't tried any KE loops, but maybe soon...

A bit less wing area than my previous planes, but not noticeable, because you can slow this baby down without it rolling out. Harriers are good, minimal wing rocking, but nothing that some practice - or a computer radio *cough cough* - couldn't fix.

This plane also does elevators like a dream... no "stairs" on this planes decent. I'm still messing with the CG so the elevator can be as level as possible. Very fun plane.

Boss is right: there's no reason you should pass up free plans like this. Simply amazing

I just started to build my 3DBatix Extra 330 this morning.I got to tell you
it goes together quick.I had to put on aileron counter balance,but I know
that modification won't bother with the flight characteristic of the plane
(I think???) I made mine with blue-foam.

Also, welcome back boss.

Happpy flying,

Sorry Boss, I havent got to make a vid yet. I am at the mercie of a buddy of mine who keeps forgetting to put it on charge so that I may barrow it. All you guys building will surely be happy with this one, it is an awesome plane. Your right Shmavis this is as good as it gets for free plans. It falls together. Gonna do a few mods to make it an Edge 540. I will start cutting it Monday. Sure hope it dosent change it much unless it gets better.(I cant amagin that). Happy flying fellas!!!!
