I did my 5th (sold 1-4) as3x sbach conversion yesterday--a tiny wire broke off the elevator motor--and I resoldered it to the circuit board--while it was still glued in to the fuse--an exciting stressful moment with great relief on attempt 7. No 3rd hand and with a standard soldering iron I got from radio shack in 1992. I was quite proud and fortunate --it would have been an opportune time to be listening to Carmina Burana "O Fortuna".

I also learned that the carbon rods are quite flexible and resilient and I removed the end from the brick while still glued in place--by putting in a big arc in the rod. Usually I remove the brick and then the rods due to the severe right angles where it attaches to the servo.

this brings me to my question--

How does the new as3x sbach fare compare to the converted sbach's? Anyone own both and can compare? I fly mine converted as3x sbach with 2300kv with 5043 prop. How is the 2500 in the new as3x sbach? In the videos seems great
