Have you read the problems this plane has with being tail heavy?

It's beautiful but I took it off my wish list as I don't think it's well executed.

It is said to have "bad habits" in flight. Not meaning to bash,but I know what it's like to have a bad flying airplane. It's frustrating!

Not to bash this one, but the Sebart (though not a scale color scheme) is a very nice flying Sbach.... or if you want bigger, the Slipstream 72" on 10S is "kick azz", but you have to put a big motor in it. I have a Hacker A60-20S in mine, 20X10 prop, and pretty much unlimited vertical.... and the plane is only about $300.00

Other than looking at it on the Pilot RC site, no, as I have lot's of projects to finish/build right now, but might have to soon...but then, the new 3DHS 58" Edge just became available for pre-order, and of course I am still drooling over the 74" Edge...but then, all it takes is money!!

The manual for the Pilot RC Sbach is found here...
