I got one of these things before they go away forever I love this plane so much. I put 6 flights on it. We clocked one flight. 94.8 MPH in a dive, and 92.4 in another. Along with consistent 83-88 MPH straight and level passes . I already had a 2200 MAH 3S 45-60 Nanotech that fit perfectly. I used that for the speed passed. Im thinking about ESC'ing and Propping it up to a 7X5 or 7X6 to get 100+ MPH straight and level. I really love how this thing performs. I also installed the speedbreaks with some spare extensions. Those help with the landing
Also, my little brother bought a Dynam turbo Jet and picked up a UM P-51 at the LHS. The turbo Jet flies really great at half throttle. We were getting a safe 6:30 out of a 2650MAH 3S 45-60c Pack. More to come on that

I went to a heli fun fly at my field the other day. Even though I personally don't take a huge liking to helis, it was pretty cool! Here is a vid of a guy at out club flying his SAB Goblin 630 it was huge!!!
That was then, but this is now. This WAS the best RC jet I have owned. It had a lot of problems. retracts were faulty, weak ball-link joints. The motor Is not the most powerful thing I have ever witnessed. Overall, on the quality scale it's a 7. beside the fact that it is not a trainer, the plane would be perfect for a first EDF after a high wing trainer and a low wing warbird (P51, P47, P40, F4U to name a few).
The jet is great on rolls, but I didn't try loops (it dose not have a carbon spar going through the wings). What I really want to get to is that the low speed characteristics are AMAZING on this jet. I can actually glide from about 100 yards out and touch down perfectly. I think the ability to hold a high angle of attack is due to the strakes near the nose, giving the jet a little bit of "umph" under the nose. That ability is also possible with out spoilerons, flaperons, leading edge slats, stabilization systems or anything! Overall this jet is amazing.
But the worst thing possible happened to this jet. While the jet was on takeoff, which requires about 50mph of speed and at LEAST 200 feet to reach takeoff speed. I had a small pebble about the size of a lego man bounce off the front wheel and get sucked into the intake. Since the jet s a single ducted fan, the rock acted like it as in a blender, it...Continue Reading
