Hope that you both are great, receive my greetings

This make you plane Kit the best that I have ever build.

Built and owned by 'Jim Goad" from Punta Gorda Florida 

Powered by a DA-150 with tuned canisters. Controlled by JR radio gear.  As in the true Carden tradition, it flies like a dream.

Dennis, Caroline,

Here are some pics of my 330.

The plane was easy to build and the fit of all of the parts were perfect.

craig_harris_40-330-338.jpg (75163 bytes)

The covering job is unique due to the fact the stabs and wings were all computer generated and the Monocoat was cut on a vinyl cutter by Jeff Dean of Vital Signs and Graphics in Kennesaw, Georgia. Sure made for an easier covering job!, thanks Jeff. Can't wait to get it in the air.

Powered by a DA 150, Hitec digitals, Duralite Plus batteries. See you next week at the Nall.

Thanks for a great product,

Craig Harris

Dear Dennis and Caroline,

Another one done....  You guys did a great job designing this one and Jim Julian (PSL, FL.) did an outstanding job building and finishing it,  with a little help from me.

Dennis and Caroline,
Got to test fly my new 40% Carden Extra 330 this past weekend and I have to say that it is everything I hoped it would be.  Presentation of this aircraft is outstanding and it flies very easily.   I am looking forward to many flights with this plane in the Unlimited Class of IMAC and truly appreciate your products.

Subject: Alex Pesch, Extra 330 is done

Dennis and Caroline,

Well, it is finally done.  This is the kit that you donated to the Tucson Shootout, I seem to be the slowest builder in the world but it turned out really nice.  I have enclosed a couple of pictures, if the weather holds up we will fly today.

The plane is set up as follows:
DA 150 on tuned pipes, yep the long ones, and it does balance with no additional weight in the nose.
Weight 38.75 pounds

Servos      4-9206's in the wings, 4-9206's in the elevators,  2-S5050 digital for the rudder

Thanks for the great kit, it was a pleasure to build, should be even more fun to fly.

Hi Dennis and Carline,

Here are some photos of my latest project. After flying the 40% Giles 300 for a while, I decided to try the Extra 330s kit based on the glowing recommendations from Steve Swahn. 

stephen_faust_40extra-582.JPG (105939 bytes)

He let me fly his 330S, and it flew wonderfully. So, I ordered one. Between ordering the kit, and having it built, I lost the Giles 300. As it turns out, Steve Swahn was selling his 330s, and offered it to me. After flying it now for while, what can I say.

stephen_faust_40extra-583.JPG (75091 bytes)

The 330s flies excellent, and is the best handling airplane I have
flown to date.  Because of winter here in New England, I haven't put any flights on the new one yet, but I expect it to fly every bit as good as the one I currently have.

stephen_faust_40extra-584.JPG (87003 bytes)

I took the backlit photo for the cover of the spring issue of High Flight magazine. The others I took here at my house. The photo of the Patty Wagstaff Extra is the one that I purchased from Steve, and have been flying for a while now. I though you might like the photo of it, as it present so well.
