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.

Well that's all I have at the moment. Stay tuned and hopefully this won't be the most boring thread on the web. Lol.

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.

Considering how much I have posted of my planes on other people's threads heck I don't mind at all and I am fine with glow.

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.
