Flying the Depdart is so much fun that it made me curious how it would be to fly a little slower and having rudder and ailerons. I got some plans (3DBatix: Extra 330 , Diablo & Extra 330 modified by ACA3D) from Ray. I went for the modified Extra 330 plan.
I am gonna use the 3DBatix Extra 330 outside and I am not building her for max 3D performance. If I like the Extra I can always make an as light as possible new one.
Bummer, my supplier was out of Depron so I had to use Polypon. Polypron is a little softer and less dense as Depron.
Extra 330 maiden flight
It was quite windy when we did the maiden flight and the Extra survived its first airtime. I did set the dual rates on 60%, gave some throttle and watched the Extra’s tail become smaller. Nothing beats the feeling of a maiden flight.
It was really a great experience to fly that slow and having such a big wing surface to float on! I really liked the plane a lot. So far I am very happy with my decision to make 3D foamy for outdoor.
