So if this Dynam bipe flies like anything like the Sbach, I'm gonna be a certified Dynam fanboy.
I have been following the Dynam SBach thread as well. I am really impressed with Dynam's 3 newest releases! I have read that the SBach needs quite a bit of mods to make it 3D capable. I personally want something out of the box with a few small mods to be 3D ready. I am also following the SU-26m thread. First reports are promising. Dynam has put in 17g tail servos and stronger control horns than the SBAch. If the next shipment of the SBAch has those revisions as well I will go for it. I really want a nice SBach. I do not have one in the hanger yet. They are just cool looking planes. I already have 2 Edges, 2 Slicks, and one extra. An SBach would be a great addition.

I've had my eye on this puppy for a while now

PNP, $106 shipped to my door. Decent lookin little bipe with a huge fanbase.

Anybody here got one?
It was a great sport plane for me! I have had 2 of them and killed 2 of them. It is made out of the beer cooler foam so if you hit the ground at the right angle and hard enough the plane will be toast. I lost both of mine trying to make it do tricks it was not suppose to such as KE spins, tumbles, and just a bunch of flipping about. It handled them fairly well I just could not pull out in time and smacked the ground hard! The remains of the fuse are still sitting in my living room waiting to be stripped. If you get the sttiP make sure you do the mods before you fly it. Carbon spars in both wings, new ESC, larger battery bay opening, and the Parkzone prop. It makes a whole world of difference and the mods are not that tough or time consuming. Check out the thread and then go from there. I really loved both of mine. May they RIP.

It is from Nitroplanes so probably their Banana Plug. I always change mine to Deans. That is what I have been using and am comfortable with. Just change it to what you like.

got mine today, yes it's a banana plug.

box is huge, maybe 4ft tall.

got everything put together, didn't have time to do the electronics, everything is beefy.

nose cowl is held on by 2 magnets, i need to make a small pull tab for the battery door.

Hoping to fly this weekend.

Jrod, try and take a couple of assembly pics! Can't wait to get mine.

Please let us know if the Dynam decals are already applied or not. I want to make my own seeing as how I work for a large custom graphics and decal shop

decals are not applied, it comes on a sticker sheet.

it's already assembled, took like 20 mins, it all screws together. even comes with a y harness for the ailerons.

I don't have a camera, so no pics.

the only thing i discovered was that for the machine screws on the wing braces, the order should be screw-washer-wing support-wing-nut. I tried putting washers on both sides but i ran out and realized how it should put together.

it has a dynam speed controller which is just a rebranded hobbywing, i can tell from the manual. The typical program card should work.

That would great! I'm curious if they're all using the left-over yellow plastic pieces to attach those tail wires.

Thanks.

More punch comes primarily from an increase in voltage (ie: number of cells in the pack). However, small changes in power can be achieved by decreasing internal resistance. That's where the 'C' or discharge rate comes in to play. So a 35C lipo CAN produce more punch than a 20C but only if the motor demands it. One other thing that can affect internal lipo resistance is the ambiant temperature. I believe lipos have the least resistance at around 105'F. So a slightly warmer lipo will allow the current to pass more easily. Flying in really cold weather will hinder flight performance. Although I wouldn't know that last fact first-hand since I live in sunny South Florida. ;-).

Yup. You are correct. And, as you see from what you say, all other things being equal (C rating especially), a higher mAh battery will give more "punch" than a lower mAh one. Just compute the available amps (mAh x C) to see why.

13x7 should be better for 3d right, I figure pushing more air with a slight increase in amp draw?
If you want to fly 3D you want a prop that does not have too much pitch. A 13x6 is good for all around. Having less pitch allows the motor to spool up fast when you need it. Too much pitch can be a bad thing because the plane will torque over if you punch the power too fast and also the motor will not spool up fast enough if your doing any maneuvers that requires constant throttle control like slow rolling harriers.

The manual says to glue the hatch down but simple velcro or magnets would be better since you can access the receiver area if you need to.

Don't do it. There will not be enough power to ply the plane. The first few seconds you will be able to fly, but after like a minute the power drops and can cause the ESC to cut out. That's the report I heard when someone tried to fly the Dynam SBach on 3s so I'm just passing along the info

I just hope the decals are not on already. They are ugly. I might paint some white strips on the bottom or something too.
1800mAh is better for 3D. A 2200mAh makes the plane a tad bit heavier and also more nose heavy. For 3D too noise heavy is not good. The lightest setup is best. For just sport flying a 2200mAh would be great since it allows longer flight times.

The decals comes on a separate sheet

Yea we have been working with Dynam to improve their planes

We're going to try to bring them. That's if their still in stock when the time comes.

If you are Bring some FMS 800MM series war birds ill pick one up from you.
Yes we will be attending the WEAKS show. I'll bring it up with our manager to see if we can bring the 800mm planes.
