Kit version of the EXTRA 330SC designed by Gernot Bruckmann (no servos, power set, battery or receiver)
The 3D Freestyle Monster
This MULTIPLEX aerobatic model is the ultimate 3D free-stylers for the experienced pilot. The kit model is ready built in about six hours and ready for use. We recommend the dedicated power set MPX332673, which is perfectly designed for this model.
Feel like World Champion Gernot Bruckmann and fly the reduced ELAPOR®- version of its successful aerobatic machine!
What comes out when one of the world’s top RC pilots, contact one of the world’s top passenger-carrying aircraft companies and the MULTIPLEX development together around a table to develop a new aerobatic model can be seen in the new MULTIPLEX Extra 330 SC.
This was developed in cooperation with Gernot Bruckmann, Extra Aircraft and Mirco Pecorari (Aircraft Design Studio) to a top product, the details and sophisticated design unequalled.
The MULTIPLEX Extra 330 SC is designed as an absolute unlimited 3D Freestyle Monster and knows in the air no limits. Their extremely solid design sets new standards in the 1.2 meter class.
All also conceivable aerobatic manoeuvres are possible with this model. Due to the long lever arm the aircraft flies very precisely, so that even «pattern Style» (program aerobatics) can be flown.
The Extra 330 SC acting for a model with a wingspan of 1,15m very large and is a «must have» for all aerobatic fans. The powerful brushless motor is designed for ultimate 3D flight.

«Dear MULTIPLEX fans,
It was late August, in brilliant sunshine, when MULTIPLEX invited the world’s modelling press to the flying site of the LSV Bruchsal model club to enjoy a demonstration of an important new product. Well before the event there was considerable speculation about what this traditional German model company had up its sleeve. As soon as it became known that the record-breaking World Champion Gernot Bruckmann was present, together with renowned designer Mirco Pecorari of Aircraftstudiodesign, it was obvious that this was to be no ordinary ELAPOR model.
Managing Director Dieter Wörner welcomed the select band of guests before unveiling the secret: the result of a collaboration between one of the world’s finest RC pilots, one of the world’s best full-size aerobatic aircraft manufacturers (EXTRA Aircraft), and the MULTIPLEX development team. The result was an outstanding new aerobatic model, about which you can read lots more in the September issue of the MULTIPLEX newsletter.
EXTRA 330 SC designed by Gernot Bruckmann
The idea behind this model was to give any and every model pilot the opportunity to fly a Gernot Bruckmann EXTRA 330 SC. After the initial presentation we moved directly to the flight-line, where Gernot demonstrated his freestyle schedule flying his 3.10 m wingspan EXTRA 330 SC, which is famed all over the world from its many appearances in open displays and competitions. Torque rolls, knife-edge spins, inverted harriers: the whole deal.
This was an impressive benchmark, and many must have wondered whether an ELAPOR model spanning just 1.15 m would be able to hold its head up in such company. Swiftly the ROXXY® battery was placed in the foam model, and away we went: Gernot took control of the reduced-scale ELAPOR® version of his successful aerobatic machine, lifted off smoothly, and within just a few seconds in the air dispelled any lingering traces of doubt amongst the onlookers. The model was hardly in the air before Gernot placed it in a flat spin, and after that there was no stopping him: it was clear that every imaginable aerobatic manoeuvre was possible with this model. However, the long tail moment also endows the aircraft with very precise handling, enabling it to fly ‘pattern style’ (standard aerobatic schedule) without problem. No matter how violent Gernot’s manoeuvres, the ELAPOR® EXTRA 330 SC showed no signs of distortion or flexing. The G-rate sensor installed in the model showed a peak of 14G, and the roll rate was extremely high.
If there was ever any doubt that MULTIPLEX staff love their handiwork, that vanished when suddenly five ELAPOR® EXTRAs were in the air at once. The whole thing was reminiscent of the legendary Dogfighter mass-launches which have now become a traditional feature of the MULTIPLEX Airshow, which takes place every two years. There’s no doubt about it: flying this EXTRA 330 SC is just endless fun!
Mirco Pecorari, Extra Aircraft’s graphic designer, developed the colour scheme especially for the RR ELAPOR® version: “I am very proud to have had the opportunity to collaborate with MULTIPLEX and Gernot Bruckmann on this model. It really feels like we’re all part of a close family. The ELAPOR® EXTRA 330 SC offers a breathtaking 3D performance, and the colour scheme looks really great in the sky.”
Neither could Gernot Bruckmann hide his delight: “The MULTIPLEX EXTRA 330 SC represents the pinnacle of what is currently possible from an all-foam machine in terms of aerobatic performance. Although the model is much smaller than my contest machine, it is fully 3D-capable, and is actually comparable with the large model. When you consider that this is a foam model, it’s simply incredible. It is really rigid, and there is hardly a trace of distortion or flex in the airframe! A further advantage is that the risk you take flying a 1.15 m span model is so much lower, and any repairs are much easier to fix if you should manage to damage it.”
In the EXTRA 330 SC, designed by Gernot Bruckmann, MULTIPLEX have produced an aerobatic plane which reflects the very best of what is currently possible using ELAPOR® technology. Look more closely, and the model exhibits the love for detail typical of MULTIPLEX models. It incorporates a series of ingenious and innovatory features; for example, wound carbon spars make the lightweight EXTRA 330 SC incomparably rigid. Aerobatic models need plenty of power, and this is delivered by a potent brushless motor designed for 3S batteries, in conjunction with a 55 A S-BEC speed controller. The Hitec HS-82MG servos installed as standard in the RR version guarantee razor-sharp control response. Now – thanks to MULTIPLEX – anyone can fulfil his dream of flying like a World Champion, as our “little” EXTRA is in no way inferior to the full-size machine.
The EXTRA 330 SC designed by Gernot Bruckmann is available in two variants:
