NEW!!!! Hobbyking 1000mm SBach 342 BALSA ARF

NEW!: Hobbyking 1000mm SBach 342 BALSA ARF















The Sbach 342 has been nothing short of a sensation since its arrival on the aerobatic scene, Philip Steinbach's masterpeice manages to combine aggressive yet graceful lines with a modern look, that has caught the imagination of aviation enthusiasts the world over. Performance is of course, what cutting edge aerobatic aircraft are about, and it is ironic that the Sbach 342 was designed specifically to mimic model 3D aircraft capability.

The HobbyKing Sbach 342 is a looker, no doubt about that and the more you look at the detail the more the "wow" factor of this model really hits home. The size of the control surfaces grab your attention straight away, this is built for 3D/precision aerobatics, then look at the hardware, the pushrods using ball-links all round, pull/pull rudder confirm the initial impression. The amazing, ultra high quality construction gives stength combined with light-weight, another essential precision aerobatic box ticked!

This model has been superbly thought out and designed, other features worthy of a mention are the composite/ply motor mount & under-carriage mount, the extensive hardware kit that is included, the rubber mounted cowl, the carbon fibre wing tube, the canopy secured by a latch AND magnets and so on, the HobbyKing Sbach 342 is stunning combination of scale detail, high quality workmanship, high quality components and out and out performance.


Specs:

Wingspan : 1000mm (39.4")

Length : 975mm (38.4")

Wing Area : 19.41 dm2

Flying Weight: 600g~650g

Looking forward to this! And looking for some recommendations on reasonable mild-to-wild setups…

They released a 55" today but from what I've read on the smaller one it is tail heavy and requires alot of weight up front to balance wich brings the AUW up to an unacceptable level for a 3d plane.

Thanks, Ben! I saw the sneak peek of the 55" Sbach that was posted last night, and got all excited... waiting for it to go live on Hobbyking.
