EBay Extra 330L

Very pretty plane, but really heavy. The cowl is actually fiberglass and really heavy. Needed a 2808 Axi to ROG and it was a constant tip stall queen. Don't get this one.

Check the motor spec to get the correct size prop for the motor/battery combo that you have. For my Axi 2808 I used 9X6 and 10X6. Correct your COG by moving battery.
