Just pulled the trigger on this cool bird and will make the servo upgrades for 3D testing! Normally, Nitroplanes gets an order to my door in 1 day, if I place the order in the AM. If it shows up tomorrow, I'll try to get photos up by Friday!

Best,
Tony

For a plane this size, I'd think you'd want at minimum HS-65 equivalent servos... and something closer to an HS-85 if you really want it to be a 3D monster.

Of course, there are many other factors that go in to a good 3D platform... I sure hope some videos appear of this thing getting wrung out.

I have some hs65s but hate to invest them into an ARF that comes with servos, wish it was a tru ARF that had no electronics for cheaper

Still buying it

Big 10-4 on the servo choice...for 3D you need min 40 oz-in of torque (assuming 5V), esp on the ail & ele

Digitals even better

But still showing 9g servos. That in itself would be, imo, very suspicious. Let's hope the rest of the ship if/when avail, measures up.

I'm stoked but I just realized I'm without a 4s charger right now. The d6 on nitro is only 30 bucks it will suffice until I get mine back.

I'm looking forward to seeing how this plane flies. I need something to go with my Eflite YAK. I tried the HK MX-2 and it was a total disaster, plenty of power, but it weighed so much that it would snap and spin at anything less than 1/2 throttle. Needless to say, it's sitting in a heap in my basement...

Dude- I hear ya on that one!!!! (something to go with the CZ Yak). I've been torturing & thrashing my CZ for a while now, but I'd love to have another big 14.8V foamie to go with it.

But I FINALLY figured out how Eflite can get $300 a pop for the CZ: they ain't got no competition!!! I have looked like crazy for a MONTH for another 3D foamie I could use my 4S/2650 CZ Yak batts in. I even put up a post on RCG. And I got NUTHIN!!!

I even came within an inching of getting a HK MX-2...but now after seeing your post I'm gonna pass.

So, I'm sure hoping this big NP SBach is the ticket. Let's see a flt report!!!

cheers
Jeff
