If their not they are pretty darn close. Instruction manual is identical only black and white. For $130 can't beat it. I think it is an older version. Has aluminum wing tube and landing gear. Anyway, it flies very well. I'm getting 13 minutes with about 1/8 tank left with the supplied tank. Not really pushing the new engine that hard yet. I think 10 minutes once I start pushing it. This thing will do knife edge flight all day long. Still playing with the CG.

Took my family of Sbach's for a days outing at the field today. Received my muffler nut during the week and used some red loctite and it is still tight after 3 x 10min flights.

I flew the Dynam lecy the most as the winds were at a constant 15mph, gusting to 20+mps all afternoon (the lecy also has no undercarriage to worry about ).

You are right about the vibration. One of my wing bolts came loose as did the servo horn, which I glued back in with some ca this time. Seemed to hold up better than the epoxy.

I find that of the 3, the Skyline (by a small margin) the nicest to fly at our field. With a longer tarmac runway, perhaps I would fly the HK 30cc more.

Can you go in more detail about your crashes? Set up and what not. Also what is your experience
CG on a 3D plane is a matter of preference. A 3D plane can fly tail heavy but you will need a lot of experience doing it.
I would start out at the front of the wing tube and move back as needed.

My crashes have always lead to a snap or tip stall from trying to slow up to much. I figure it was super tail heavy. My ef edge 540 and MXS bth are quite tail heavy but no bad habbits. I really like Sbachs but. This one has proven to be nothing but a waste of money. I balanced it right on the wing tube this time so when the weather gets better i will try it again. Had to add 4oz to the nose. I run electric as well. Servos are hitec 225 mg for each elevator half with the dubro plastic arms. I have it pretty nose heavy now from the wing tube. if it crashes again just going to wright it off and move on to something different.

I HATE snaps.
I would balance it ahead of the wing tube. even if it takes more weight.
