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.
thats sweet , im glad it doesnt come with the sstickers applied . there nice but IMO there a bit of an overkill. enjoy it i cant wait to get mine.

i should have it by next friday

i'm going to double side tape the hatch on.

i also added 3in extensions on the rudder and elevator.

I would go off the top wing, nose heavy is always better than tail heavy on a maiden.

yep easy build. took me about 45 mins. screw drive, needle nose, wrench. comes with some glue too. Those little yellow anchors...gotta re-glue a couple of them.

I agree with the top wing (leading edge) as measure point for CG. (add weight) if needed.

What a sweet looking plane!

I think I am in love!
How easy are those wheel pants to take off for grass landings? Is the LG sturdy? Do you think it will need any more reinforcement in the wings or anywhere else?
I was almost going to get a PZ Extra but I don't think I will be able to resist the Pitts! er, um, Peaks!

Wings feel solid, there is a plastic rod in the top wing, might switch it out for a cf rod, but just for bling, carbon rods come in the elevator with a couple dimples for more rods if u want.

Landing gear has no rake so I'm worried about grass landings, but gonna try it anyways. Wheel pants are plastic and unscrews off, but u will need to devise a way to put the wheels back on without the pants.

Does not, I repeat does not fit in the back of a convertible with the top up, wings are a bit of a pain to take off, but that's a small price to pay for something so beautiful.

None of my coworkers could believe it was less than $150 shipped ... he'll I'm still in shock, it really looks and feels like a much more $$$ plane.

If only my wife would allow more than 3 prop planes, I'd buy the sukhoi and sbach just from the quality for price on this model. Dynam kudos to you, loved ur gy48v now o love it planes. Well love it now, but might not after I fly it. O.o

Altho I've not flown mine yet, I'm betting $250 shipped for a neat plane like this may well be worth it...when I consider that my CZ Yak was $300 + tax = $321, and the sttiP here was like $160 shipped, then value-for-money by favors Dynam by far.

All that said, these things come from China so there's gotta be a seller over there who can send ya one a heckuva lot cheaper than shipping from the States

I dont have the Sukhoi (yet) but I can tell ya that after doing some work on it, Dynam's Sbach is a pretty doggone decent performer... and a decent-lookin plank, to boot...I'd highly recommend it

Ok I cracked. With the Facebook 15% off code it was 125 bucks shipped to my house so I grabbed one. I hope it flies as good as it looks.
