The Extra 330SC was developed by Scott Stoops to do exactly what the full-scale SC does: dominate the competition. This is the stand-out medium-sized Extra in the sport today. The 3DHS 330SC is light, long, strong, stable, and maneuverable: the exact mix of characteristics to handle the widest range of flight duties. The SC is at home doing high-speed sport flying, serious IMAC precision practice, or the lowest, slowest, most confident 3D.
The Extra includes removable SFGs for extreme knife-edge performance. Also included are wing bags, one-piece carbon landing gear, aluminum axles, one piece canopy hatch, pre-assembled motor box, removable wings on a large-diameter carbon fiber spar tube, ball-link hardware, carbon-reinforced landing gear mount, carbon-reinforced elevator pushrod, genuine ultracote covering, hatch latch, and more.
I have owned almost a dozen 3DHS airframes- all have been high quality, but this airframe above all others I have own or have flown (VR-1, Vypers, 300 SHP, 89" Slick and this) is the most honest, versatile and best flying of the bunch. From aggressive 3D to IMAC work, this plane meet's the design goal- to dominate. Nice job Ben and Scott!

Only one company sells this plane....
I saw Ben and the KM fly this 3d plane at the New Jersey throwdown...and I was like...God, I must get this plane. Wow!!! Ben was really trying to snap this plane in half along with the Km. This Extra 330SC, is built so well that no even the most powerful 3d maneuver can break it. My Set up Hacker motor A40-12s Hacker ESC 70amps Hitec 225mg Hyperian BEC Perfect for hovering…. The only Item I would add with this kit is the metal 4mm wings screws.

I have my extra set up with 2200mh 6s and it is awesome, very light floaty plane and it is very stable. I am learning to hover on this one.

Smoothest Most Versatile 3DHS Airframe I've Flown So Far!
Loving my 57SC with a Motrolfly 3625-800 Motor and Castle ICE 100 Lite on a 4S 4000 20C Zippy and APC 14x7E prop. I own the 40 Edge, 42 Slick and 47 Velox. This plane is my most awesome performer, slithering speed with this power combo, yet so stable in Harrier and slow flight. Very precise tracking. Very Floaty in Elevators and Harrier. 4.8lbs AUW on my setup. If you like to fly a mix of Precision, Sport and 3D, this plane does it all and does it all well!
