So far I`m very happy with the performance of the 330, it to me is a combination of the crisp f3p foamies, with a toss around freestyle foamy. Mine both came out around 4.6 ounces but feel much lighter and fly just the same. Since starting to fly Chris`s foamies, like the yak 55, and the Mx2 I think this one is by far the best flying to date!!!!

That blue/purple scheme is badass! If it flies like your other planes, then I probably need one. These things work right, no matter who you are!

Thank Al!
Oddly that's exactly what I was going for with the 330....If I had a criticism on my older yaks & mx2 it would be that they leaned to the 3D side to much and took a little work to draw consistent lines in the gym. The 330 on the other hand is very constant and predictable, on low rates it really is a pattern ship, and on high rates its an animal.

Bowker Aero Model 330sc & FiFi


Here is a photo of Chris flying the Bowker Aero Model 330SC at the 2012 Indoor event in Midland, TX. Our fly-in was held in the Commemorative Air Force Hangar, with FiFi as a backdrop.

I had a chance to fly Chris' plane, and it flies very well. Nice and stable, and also quick and responsive. I enjoyed it so much, I had to have one. I've been wanting to build a milled freestyle plane, so I thought I'd give the 330sc a try.

Great photo, Thanks for posting it! FiFi was an excellent back drop for the fly-in.

I look forward to flying with y'all again at TINY 2013.

This wasn't exactly the footage I wanted to use, but due to the lack of an extra set of hands to hold the camera when the weather is good and losing all my regular indoor gym's this was the best I could do for now

PS. looks better in full screen
