Help!
Small electric model for IMAC Basic training purpose.

I'm trying to find a small el model to use for training when I don't have time to go to a large runway or the runway isn't available. Currently I've been using a rather excellent Winner Model 50" Edge 540, but a bit of breeze and this very light plqne (around 1.2 kg with battery) bounces around like a squirrel on speed.

Does anyone have a suggestion about a plane in the same size, but weighing in a bit more (read tolerates wind a bit better) which will allow me to use my current drivetrain (2200 4s setup, giving around 3kg thrust on 14" prop)?

don't take this the wrong way, and there might be someone here that can answer your question, but I think there would probably be more people who could answer that, in the electric section!
with that said, I heard the HobbyKing SBACH is kind of a lumber wagon! that's just what I have read, for what it's worth!

Thanks for the reply!

Well, I kinda solved it with another gas model (pilot sbach) with a 26cc. Guess I'll be able to land it on short space even though I wanted an electric setup for convenience *facepalm*
