95" Electric Only Extra 330-E

I'm on the way out the door to E-week, and within about 3.5 hours the cat will be out of the bag, so I figured I'd give you guys some details and eye candy for this amazing new model to prevent a week of speculation while we are away.

Introducing the 3DHS/EF purpose built electric only 95 inch Extra 330-E. This has been a dream project for Ben and I for several years and the seeds were planted prior to our merger. The one element that always held us back was a reliable and powerful power system; enter the Xpwr 60. Ben did an excellent job on the drawings and aerodynamic package and our factory raised the bar yet again with their implementation of our ideas. No consideration was made for a gas power plant so we were able to reduce weight significantly throughout the airframe. As it sits, loaded with 2 2S 2550 Rx packs and 2 Pulse 5500 65C 6S packs the Extra is 19.98 pounds. This is very close to 2 pounds less than the typical 91" EXP electric buildout, which is no small feat I assure you.

For such a cool model we knew we had to find a killer scheme and we are very grateful to Jim Bourke for allowing us to use this beautiful scheme from his new Extra 330 that he recently had built for competition. Thanks so much Jim! This scheme looks amazing on the ground and really pops in the air! As you would expect the Extra is super floaty, super stable and yet is still able to tumble and gyrate as we all demand. SupaTim, Jeff Williams, Noll and the rest of our team and myself will beat on this thing for the next few days and if all goes well I will sign off on it upon my return from E-week. This one is for all you guys that frequent this forum, love E-power, great flying models, and for all the positive contributions you all make to these discussions about this unique and exciting part of our hobby.

Video and more details and pics soon!

Cheers! Chris Hinson Extreme Flight

Hope to see a 62" version as well! Can't imagine how much fun it would be super-light on 6S 3000-3300.
