Welcome any input on the 45 size EZ Extra 330L.
- building hints, mods.
- engine (contemplating on an enya 80).
- flight characteristics (3d capable?).

2 answers:

1. FLYES GREAT!!!
2. LOOKS GREAT!!!

25 flight now with an OS46SF, 11x7 prop 11,500RPM,
(NOT UNLIMITED VERTICAL WITH THE 46) get a .50 up front even a lightweight 61

At first I was dissapointed a the EZ plastic, foam, vynil and balsa cosntruction, not because it was bad quality, but because is going to be hard to repair, The top is Plastic and the tail feather are foam and balsa. completely covered with vinyl and foam, which looks great and much more durable than monokote.

But then again, it looks and flyes like a dream, it lands like a trainer, Roll rate is incredible, no stalls whatsoever. Last sunday I was doing fast low passes, then roll to inverted in front of the crowd, pull to vertical then 5 outside snaps. no hassle.

I passed the control to my brother who flyes a tuned piped super Kaos, and coundt believe how fast this plane rolls. He's tweaking the ailerons on the Kaos right now after that flight.

Then Again do not crash it. instead buy 2. There 's a picture Ill post some more next

Recommending a larger engine? what do you think about the enya 80 4 stroke?
Did you need any additional weight to get the CG balance?

Enya 80 is too heavy for it.
I built one with a Saito 72 (lighter than the Enya) and needed to add 2 oz. of lead to the tail, even with the battery mounted to the rear of the servos.

It is really designed for a 2 stroke. Use an Enya 50cx or Webra 50 and it will be great.

Check out the review in RCM, he had the same problem. It was either July, August, or Sept.

George,

Read a post that an EZ Dago Red used the enya 80.

So did you end up using the saito? Is it 3d capable?
