Hope you enjoy it, it's such a nice looking plane. Personally, I think this should be the next plane that manufacturers pick up on....I'm so sick of Yaks and Edges, etc...WAY too many of them!
you are soo correct. Yaks, edges, extra's, etc etc. Sam ol same ol.

This one is unique! And with a 73" wingspan, will be a treat to fly!

OH and thank you for the non tiled plans. I downloaded the pdf and printed out several copies on a plotter at work!

Please keep us updated on the big one....let us know if you start a build/assembly thread.

You're welcome for the plans...I just noticed that the untiled version doesn't have the measurement scale on it. I would love to hear if you or someone else builds this plane and what they think of it since it's my first attempt at drawing plans.

Nice work Spitfire!!!!


For larger planes there's some wooden profile kits of the Sbach available here
http://www.thebalsastore.com/index.p...chk=1&Itemid=1


I've personally met the designer of the profile kits Ron at an event, and had the chance to fly all of the planes that he made,

Since I built the .45 for myself, and am working on re-building it (Dumb thumbs and a lack of skill resulted in rekitting the wings) One of my regular flying buddy's is now flying the .55
Sbach 55 first 3 flights (3 min 25 sec)


And Ron is now working on a .65 version 65" wing span!!!!

3D Rookie, thanks for the links! After crashing my Twist, I have some spare equipment and an OS. 46AX that need a plane. I will definitely consider those! The Sbach is fast becoming one of my new favorite planes.

Great job, really like the tissue paper covering job.

Do you think a eflite 370(1360kV) would work? I have one laying around.

Hey Matt, I wish I could! I'm pretty sure this design would need lot's more flight testing and optimization before commercialization.

Hi Fierce. With the Park 400 with a 10 x 7 prop, I can hover at around 2/3 throttle. However, I'm using 2 aileron servos and a 5-year old 1500 mAh battery that's heavy and probably not giving full power (it's been cycled many times and never balanced). I'm awaiting 2 orders from HK with new, smaller capacity, ighter batteries....can't wait to try them out!

I would definitely go ahead and try the Park 370. The plane itself is very light (~2 oz). The rest of the weight would depend on your radio equipment, etc.

Just what I am looking for. Thank you spitfire222.

I was inspired to look for some foamie sbach plans when I saw the Sbach 300 available from Paul Blymer but I'd rather have the 342.

Good job Vincent! Nice looking plane and you did a great job on it. Not sure how I missed this one the first time around. I wonder how it would do made from 9mm EPP. Hmmmmm.....another one for the build list.

Here is one using EPP. I will be working with him on plans and am looking at kitting it.

Vincent, I have read through your thread. Yours looks real nice. I have downloaded the plans and will be comparing it with what was built in the other thread. Do you mind if I post about differences so we can compare the two planes? I believe that he built his strait from a 3-view. I have seen his fly and it did real nice but compared to yours is a light weight. He is using the same kind of gear used in the Leadfeather Yak-55. (26 gr motor, 10A ESC, 460 3s battery)

Please do this one in a 42" version with an airfoil wing like your edge. You know how I feel about the edge, the SBach would really be sweet. I'm in for the first one if you do.

Sterling, if you do end up building one, would love to see pics and hear of any improvements/modifications.

Hi Mike! The EPP Sbach looks great and from the video flies beautifully. I also drew up my plans from a 3 view, but I realized not too long ago that I made the turtle deck straight when it should be slightly curved. Please feel free to post any comparisons or updates! My opinion is that the more Sbachs flying, the better.
