Thanks for the clarification. Hopefully you will have some of the 13x6 props in soon, I anticipate breaking a few ~_^

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.
lol I found out the hard way too when I used up all the washers The Dynam ESC technically should not work with the Hobbywing programming card, Dynam offers their own programming card if you guys need them. However I wouldn't be too surprise if they now are compatible with each other.

No glueing unless you want to glue down the wing hatch. I would suggest to use tape or magnets to attach the hatch.

Maybe I'll post an open box video? Would anyone be interested?
Yes do a open box video. If you can do a build video too that would be great Maybe I can convince the boss to hook you up with a battery

Thanks.

The Sbach uses the same 13x6 prop. Or even better get a APC or Falcon 13x6 prop. Just make sure you get the electric version.

Tony, a question...the website says the Sbach uses a 13x6.5 prop, and the 'Peaks' uses the 13x6 prop, correct (prop size not indicated on prop)? So if true, while each model uses the same motor (is this correct?), the props are not interchangeable?

As to batt choice: on the Sbach, I found that using the 4S/1800s I lost 2 1/2 min flt time, but no real gain in 3D performance...in fact with the lower mah it seemed like I had less grunt in punchouts. The Sbach seems to haul the slightly heavier 2200s around with tons of punch- but to get level inverted flt I had to move the 2200 aft a half inch....certainly to each his own on batts; just relating by experience

Dude carries a butterfly knife. I'm sorry but that's bad-ass!

Thanks for aswering the question about the yellow wire supports. We really appreciate the video. Enjoy and fly conservatively, no parts yet! We want to hear all about it.

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=14881

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

Anybody here got one?
i had one it was a gift. its what got me into loving biplanes .i dont do 3D so i cant comment on that ,but its a great flyer it was one of my favorite planes till i had a brown out and i crahsed into a tree , my only gripe was that its small , so i never got around to getting another one cause i wanted a bigger pitts. the dynam is a decent size but i would love the hangar 9 beast , an that way beyond my budget so im going to wait till HK sells there 1600mm pitts in the usa warehouse ,

Got her built, took only 20 min mentioned above. Started taking a video, but camera battery died. Oh well, this was a cake build anyways, no glue! All screws.

Well they tell u to glue the rx cover, but I'll use magnets.

One thing to note on mine, the extensions for the rudder and elevator are short and had the aileron y harness attached (I assume for shipping reasons) I'm going to extend them 3" to put my rx in the lower spot where the battery hatch is.

Hey Tony, do you guys ever do a Free shipping on orders of $150.00 or more? some online sellers do that 24/7.
or even at $250.00+?
I'm looking to buy the "Peaks" and the "Sbach". that's $270 of planes without shipping.

CG Question for anyone.

Manuals sayd C.G is 85-90mm behind the leading edge measured at where the wing meets the fuselage.

Well there are two wings, staggered. Only the lower wing is attached to the fuselage where the other one is attached to struts. Picture shows using the top wing, but does not look to be in the right place as 90mm measures behind the landing skids not as picutred.

My old UMX beast CG measured from the rearward bottom wing.

I'm 90% sure it's measured from the top wing, but want confirmation so I don't crash her on maiden. (Hopefully tomorrow weather pending)
