    RE: Fliton Extra 330 Freestyle Who's Got One?

    I had a saito 100 and it balanced easily with the battery in the last 1/3rd of the plane

    RE: Fliton Extra 330 Freestyle Who's Got One?

    flew mine on a OS 91 FS, had fantastic vertical and a beautiful flying plane till today.... when flying low and inverted passes, try not to touch the ground... ha ha... tore the Rudder and fin right off it... got it up and almost turned over but it contacted the ground, so now is time to rebuild the fuse... anyways, I did do an interesting mod on my last year, I cut off the area in front of the canopy and glued it to the front hatch, made a canopy frame and all is removed with 2 4/40 screws at the rear of the canopy, made it so much easier to install the wing bolts... but now if I can only locate a wing tube I'll be happy....

    RE: Fliton Extra 330 Freestyle Who's Got One?

    I am putting together a 330 freestyle that I just purchased from Advantage hobby. I am using a saito 91 for power and spektrum ds821 servo throughout. Do I need to use the cheesy elevator stock setup or mount 2 servos at the rear of the fuse? I want to 3d this plane so the cg will be back. What about the pull pull rudder, use it or a single servo under the rear of the tail? I will be running a 6V NiCd battery pack. Any advise will be great!

    I have the Fliton Edge, I moved servo's for ele. to the tail, I've got 2- 225mg bk there, and pull-pull on rudder-3305 for it. Saito 100 hanging off the front, and 2300 6V battery right under wing tube, no added weight.

    I'd recommend the rudder servo in the fuselage and two servos in the tail for the elevator.

    Did you use the stock pull pull rudder hardware?
    How close to the tail did you mount the elevator servos? Also how did you reinforce the fuse where you cut out for the servos? Did you beef up the landing gear area?

    No can't remember what I used actually, but it wasn't the stuff that came with plane. I threw out most all the hardware, some of it was very questionable to say the least. I have the servos about an inch in front of tail. Pm me with addy and I'll send you pics of set up if you like

    How did you mount your canopy? Looks like the instructions suggest gluing it. Sure would be hard to work on the rudder servo! Any pictures of a removable canopy would be great.

    I know they made the canopy this way to save weight, but is that a cheesy thing or what?. Did you dye or paint the canopy first?

    RE: Fliton Extra 330 Freestyle Who's Got One?

    no, I liked it clear, but yeah, that's cheesey. some guys made their own canopy hatch combo. You can find it I think in this thread. Another guy had put some silicone glue in the front end of the canopy securing it down, and letting it cure, so that it formed a rubberized front end. Said it helped it stay more flush.

    I found the screws to be enough.

    Those are my favorites!! I wish RCU would just disable that feature.

    WHOA! That's way too much. I don't know what could have happened to the plane, but mine was 5 15 with no spinner, but everything else.

    What kind of battery etc etc are you using? Is your tank full?

    RE: Fliton Extra 330 Freestyle Who's Got One?

    I am running a 5 cell NiCd batt., alum spinner, and test weight was with (2) ds821s in the back for the elevator du-bro pull-pull rudder linkage, du-bro 10 oz fuel tank and a apc 15x4w prop. I am going to try a 1800ma 2s lipo and regulator, (2) hs-5085s in the tail and a plastic spinner. That may get me about 4-5oz off. I have some carbon fiber control rod, but all the rods are so short, i don't think it would be worth the effort I did fuel coat most of the plane, but that was only 1 oz epoxy and 1 oz alcohol and i am sure all the alcohol evaporated.
    I know I am at the large end of the engine scale, so I didnt expect the advertised 93 oz but a lbs over does seem to be a bit much.

    Mine's 6 1/4 lbs with a Saito 100. I use only one elevator servo - I made a staple to join the elevator halves - and a standard size 4 cell 2000mah NiMH. It has no repairs and no additions.
    Jus\' lemme fly!
