Extra 330LX V2 3D

From Hobbyking...

The all-new Avios Extra 330LX V2 builds on the foundations laid by the V1, but with some much-needed improvements. It's now not only a great introduction to 3D flying but a true, hardcore 3D performer!

Working in collaboration with top Belgium 3D pilot Tom De Weerdt, the Avios team has created in the V2, a model made BY 3D pilots, for 3D pilots. Improvements include a more powerful, out-of-the-box 4S set-up giving incredible sports aerobatics performance that's ideal for getting to grips with 3D maneuvers, and an option for a 5S set-up, delivering full-blown 3D power, control, and prowess with just the change of the ESC. The control surfaces have been refined over many hours of flying and tuning by Tom De Weerdt and the team, improving servo resolution and control. The airframe itself has been strengthened too, with a stronger/reinforced firewall design and tail wheel system, yet remains lightweight and rigid. And, most noticeably of all, the Avios Extra 330LX now sports a stunning new scheme, masterfully painted and with pre-applied decals that looks impressive from any angle.

Avios Extra 330LX V2 (PNF) 3D Aerobatic Airplane EPO 1420mm (56") - Flight Review (13 min 58 sec)

In-flight, the Extra 330LX V2 now tracks with great precision, rolls are axial and crisp, and on high throws the roll rate is phenomenal. There is next to no coupling in knife-edge, making it a perfect platform for classic/pattern flying. The out-of-the-box standard 4S set-up generates more than enough power for unlimited vertical performance, switch to high rates/3D throws and the 3D creature emerges! The stock set-up has ample power for most of the "low and slow" 3D maneuvers. With very little wing rock it's the perfect airplane to practice harriers, high alpha knife edge, hovering, and rolling circles, etc.

Want some extra power to practice modern-day extreme aerobatics? Then upgrade to a 70 or 80amp ESC, plug in a 5S LiPo, and you are ready to have some extreme fun. You will notice straight away the extra speed, but more importantly, you'll be able to use that extra pull-out power and throttle control during your maneuvers. This added power will make your pop tops, rifle rolls, and all the extreme 3D moves that much more aggressive, ideal for experienced 3D pilots.

The "Plug N Fly" Extra is made of EPO foam and is big enough to provide great presence in the air yet breaks down quickly for transport thanks to the 'click in' wing system. The new power set-up includes a more powerful 4248-600KV brushless outrunner with a lightweight 14x7 wood propeller and 60amp Aerostar ESC. Pre-installed 25g, metal-geared, digital high torque servos provide plenty of power and strength for the large control surfaces.

Want to get into 3D flying? Then the Extra 330LX V2 is the perfect choice, and the sky your playground. Start with the recommended set-up, and gradually increase your throws and expo. This way the plane's capabilities will grow with your own skills and progression. With strengthened firewall and landing gear, and the upgraded power system, the Extra will take a bit of a beating, it will be the go-to airplane in your hangar for a very long time!

So if you are new to 3D flying or are an experienced 3D pilot looking for that quick 3D flying fix only PNP models can offer, then look no further than the new 1450mm Avios Extra 330LX V2.

V2 vs. V1...


...comparison would be great even though V1 is NLA......

Stoked to see Avios is reintroducing this Extra. I'm still enjoying my V1 but it took some modifications to the power system to get it to pull out of a hover & perform the way IMHO it was intended to. I'm assuming the new motor is up to the task compared to V1......

Curious as to why the model doesn't come with a 70A or 80A ESC already since the cost would be minimal & 5S packs could be used (which I use for V1) would be automatically.... Anyway, really like the new non-RCG color scheme. Ease of assembly & the fact it's a foamy are the main reasons I like this HK Extra, not to mention how well She does KE flight & those wicked KE spins.......

Disappearing Act...


...for the multipin quick connectors for the ailerons??? ...

That was one of the nicer features on V1. These make field assembly that much faster & foolproof... What gives on V2...

I see the advantage when there are flap and aileron servos to connect up but not when there are just ailerons and they provide a y lead. It isn't going to save you time over plugging in one lead each side.

The Avios manual seems to recommend "3000mah~4000mah 50C+ LiPo, for the optional 5S set-up we recommend a 2700~3700mah 50C+ LiPo or LiHv.

My hobby store said, "5 cell batteries are really hard to find", should I settle for a high capacity 4 cell, use one of my 6 cell batteries, but stay away from full throttle and put in an 80a spd, or hold out for the 5 cell battery?

I'd be more inclined to serial a 3 and a 2 cell pack together which have the same C rating and capacity to get the 5 cell. 5 cell only really needed for punching out of a hover aggressively. Good high C rated 4 cell packs will give you the power you need for climb out and regular aerobatics.

Think, based on my flying style, will go for a good 4cell pack. THANKS

We've got them right here in stock in our US warehouse, in the same state as you too IMO its nice to have the power in reserves also.
