The Extra Flugzeugbau EA330SC is a high-powered single seat unlimited aerobatic competition sports plane designed by German Walter Extra. Derived from the original two-seat Extra EA300 the 330SC has a more powerful Lycoming 315hp engine, smaller wingspan, reduced wing area and lighter airframe, combine all these attributes and you have a formidable flying machine. The only Extra aircraft currently being produced at the Extra Flugzeugbau factory and the pinnacle of aerobatic design.
Our latest almost ready to fly version of the Extra330SC is built with traditional balsa and light ply construction and when combined with a powerful powertrain will give you a fantastic 3D and aerobatic machine. Professionally covered airframe and with a fiberglass color-matched cowl in a spectacular scheme will help with orientation and make you stand out from the crowd. When flying the Extra you will be able to perform all the classic aerobatic stunts from big loops to hammerhead stalls, then when you pour on the power the Extra330SC will perform like a champion and make it look easy with all your 3D maneuvers from hovering to the more experienced rolling circles.
Become the aerobatic champion at your club or field with the 30cc 73inch Extra Flugzeugbau EA330SC.

I bought the Extra SC, early 2017, only got around to finish August. Well packaged. Quality average; get what you pay for. Good use of carbon fibre on main stringers for strength, but they could have used more C/F into the frame as well. Very light airframe for size. Dry fit of wings and horizontal stabiliser revealed misalignment of locating pins; some filing and sanding needed to get good fit and realignment. A couple of hardware pieces were missing, luckily I carry heaps of parts. Covering, reasonable quality, durable, ironed on well.
Most confusing part was the C,D, instructions which gave dimensions for multiple models, but the specs for the Extra SC were wrong. Not a big deal as I worked out the C of G which worked out correct for my electric set up.
I mounted a Turnigy 5065-270kv series, 1800w, Plush 80 ESC, sep BEC, sep receiver pack, 2200 2 cell, motor powered by 5000 mh, 6 cell, 22X10 wooden prop. Flying weight, 4,3 kg. Slightly under powered on 6 cell, 8 cell would be perfect, but I used what I had lying around. Being light if flies very well with little tip stall tendencies, capable of most manoeuvrers, flies slow enough I can fly at my local park, - slow landings. Good model to put together if you’ve got some building experience behind you. If you discount the somewhat confusing instructions, it goes together well, (other than the locating pins) and flies well too.Just received the model form the global warehouse. Excellent packaging with heavy double walled cardboard box with honeycomb centre. Model arrived in perfect condition. Very nice fibreglass cowl, wheels pants and film covering job. Excellent value for money. Looking forward to getting it in the air in the summer (winter now). Plan on installing a 8S brushless setup. :)Going to fit a dle 20cc in it .I feel a 30cc will be a bit too much for this light airframe.
My aim is to keep it light and have a low wing loading.Love the colour scheme
