About the Extra 330LX

From Jim Bourke:

The 330 LX is the latest development in their line of two seat Unlimited category aircraft.

I came very close to buying the single seat 330SC but after some very helpful discussions with Jeff Boerboon, I was convinced that the LX would be the right plane for me. I occasionally need to carry a passenger and I don't predict I'll be nationally competitive for many years.

I opted for the single seat canopy option. This will let me fly with the single seat canopy which lightens up the airplane, improves the aerodynamics, and also looks a lot better than the two seat canopy. With the single seat canopy in place I understand the performance is close to the 330SC. Of course there is additional weight over the SC because there is still an extra seat, controls, and a panel in there.

I went with a registration number of N330FZ. 330 is of course for 330LX. The "FZ" is for my nickname, "Fuzzy".

I worked with the Italian designer Mirco Pecorari on the color scheme. I wanted something different and striking without being overly busy. We choose colors that generally match the RCGroups color scheme.
