Picked up my RedwingRC 30cc SBACH 342 yesterday

Hey guys, I stopped in Ballwin, MO yesterday on my R & R leave and met with Tim Pastor from www.redwingrc.com. I picked up my one off, custom covered 73" span SBACH 342 that I will be building with E power!!!

This plane is BEAUTIFUL!! I pulled it partially out of the box and looked it over, and man oh man does it look good! I soooooooo cant wait to get started on this thing! Pics will come in a few days when I get home and can pull it out of the box completely.

Thanks to Tim from redwing RC for ordering me a "one off" SBACH, and thank you to Bob (rcjetpilot) for being so generous and paying for this plane for me! There is a flight reserved for you if we ever get the chance to meet up buddy! Thank you!

Laine.

Laine,

That plane really looks nice; how about some pics when you get around to it. What power system are you looking at?

I'll pull the beast out of the box tonight or tomorrow for some pictures. I cant wait to see it all out in the open.

Power system will be a Neu "ORK" motor and a Castle ICE ESC and Castle BEC on 8S 5000s or so. Should be enough to make this 73" plane into quite a rocket.

Someday maybe I'll have the kind of money needed to buy a real one like that. Doubtful, but possible. My goal is to eventually have myself a real Pitts.

I will probably go with some Hitec 645MG... but the digital ones, 5645mg I think they are called.
