Same story with my Beast.
If you manage to rip that wing in flight without hitting anything, I want to see the video. It's the Sukhoi's wing on steroids!!! Heck, I think if you hit a lamp post with it at full speed, I think you'll just break the post, not the wing!

I was gonna preorder, but will actually be on vacation in a place that probably has several hobby shops in the area when this comes out. So maybe I'll just bring my transmitter and buy it on vacation!

This one's giving me an even bigger case of KICS than the Beast did! Probably because I now know how well the Beast flies, and I anticipate that the Sbach will fly as well, if not even better in some respects. Feeling like it's Christmas Eve every couple months or so can really take its toll on a guy!

RC - no restrictions on packs or props? I like the way you think. 'Unlimited' UM air racing - coming to a parking lot near you!

pre-ordered mine on Friday. The first time I have ever pre-ordered a plane! I usually wait until it is out, proven, and all the bugs are worked out but this little baby is sweet! Now, if I could find a pre-owned beast in excellent condition...

Hi guys

Just heard from the new Horizon Sbach
Nice to see that Horizon follows his new scale "UMX" series with such type of aerobatic plane.
I will buy it when available in Germany, I'm happy with the Beast...this middle wing SBach will go better, I think so.
Can't wait and looking forward

Just got back to the office from SEFF....what a great event! Wind and all.

The full Sbach video should be up soon. I'll go check on the editing now.

The ESC in this will be goof for 4.9A continuous.

The video that is up does show it all in pretty fast flight. It will fly slowly pretty well. Especially with the SFGs on it. Then very slow high alpha KE is possible.

Al lot of q's abot hovering. It takes very very fast thumbs to do it. The power system has plenty to pull up from a hover though.

And yes, the E-Flite logos are stickers....

Dang, it's not good for 5 Amps! : )

Just kidding. Great airplane, and great receiver/esc to boot! When will we see a inside picture of the plane? Curious to see the receiver, elevator servo, and rudder servo. Maybe add this to the next video?

Now that we have the 4.9A news...

Time to change the no restrictions rule to include:

Packs
Props
&
Motors

Gentlemen, start you engines/motors.

4.9Amps

I couldn't resist the temptation of a cartwheel in my shp.

(Sure hope I didn't pull something.)

4.9a!

Very juicy indeed! I love the idea of seperate servos... plugging in a replacement as opposed to soldering in the brick, and placing servos where one may want them in future builds.
