    I thought it was about time I start my own thread so here it is.

    Welcome to The Pamster Files.

    My name is Pam. I build and fly model airplanes.
    I will post my shenanigans here in this thread from time to time.

    First up, my Extra 330.
    This is my 30% Pilot Extra 330SC. It has been finished for quite some time, like back in early spring. I had a picture day as well as engine tune.
    These first few pics are from that day. They only show various views of the plane.
    It is powered by a DLE61 with a Jtec muffler and has Savox 1231 servos all the way around. It also contains a Sullivan smoke system.

    After taking my new plane home and going over everything all seemed good so now it was time to maiden, well eventually.
    Eventually came a couple weeks ago, meaning I finally got off my lazy a$$ and went to the field. Lol.
    Here are some post maiden pics. Sorry no video. I need to find me one of those baseball cap video recording thingys.

    Thanks guys. I forgot to mention that it flew well, after I turned off the low rates, on the ailerons anyway.
    How could I have forgotten to mention how it flew? I am such a newb. Lol.

    I don't understand what you are doing with that muffler.

    I have two different mufflers. One, I found an ARF Aluminum wheel collar that fit close, and tapped it in with a hammer. The other, (again, ARF hardware) found a fuel clunk that was close in size....tapped that in with a socket and hammer.
    Aluminum brazing rod keeps the sucker in place.
    Capping off one side of the Pitts, increases the back pressure to get a better fuel feed. Leaving a small hole will allow the oil to drain out, instead of one side filling up, lol.
    If I need to increase the pressure, I can tap the insert, and plug it with a small bolt.
    On the other hand, if I want to decrease the backpressure (highly doubt it), I could open it up with a drill bit.

    Hey there Pamster. I see you're up in Dallas, I'm just down 35 a couple hours. Where do you fly up there? There are two clubs here, but precious few gassers, and even fewer 3D fliers. I'm thinking a lot about getting back into flying and would love to go where there is some action at a flying field for a change.
