Hangar 9 Extra 330sc 60e build thread/video

Hey ya'll,

I know I just joined Team Extreme but I am also still a part of team Horizon. I got this plane from Horizon just before the announcement Wednesday.

I built this plane because I wanted to give it fair chance. I flew one of these months ago at an event that I was at. I was really unhappy with how the plane flew but it was setup with non stock equipment such as a different motor, esc, battery pack size, and a different AR636 program.

So this one was put together 100% per the manual and per the recommended equipment setup.

I am very happy to say that the plane has great performance and has much better control and thrust than the one I flew previously.

I'm attaching some pictures that I found note worthy during the build. And a video I took just today of this plane. I didn't do a full build thread because the manual has great pictures and good explanation of what needs to be done to build it quickly. Mine was from unpacking to flight ready in 6 hours. I did the whole build in one evening.

3 things Colton:
1). What are you doing in a tee shirt and shorts? It's snowing.
2). Your attempt to break the wings failed.
3). You was at 410 feet.

Lol.... Dang dude! Nothing like hammering it out of the box.

ok make it 4..

4.) you scratched the rudder covering on the landing.

ok.. I'm jealous.

I hope I wasn't at 410 ft. Our field starts off at 2800 or something like that.

T shirt and shorts man. Ya'll need to come on out here. Like beach with no water.

Hey Kurtis! Still got the T-28. We'll sold the first one and got a new one. That's like my go to foamy right now. I've got enough flights on #2 that I'm getting ready to order wheel replacements. It generally gets about 6+ flights a weekend. 12 or more if I go Saturday and Sunday.

Not sure when I'll get back to GA.

I bought this plane because I wanted a plane that could use my larger 6S packs. I run it with 6S 5500's and it flies....like any other 3D plane I have, but seems to fly more like an Edge.
