NEW SBACH 342 EPO 1400mm from hobbyking

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...00mm_PNF_.html



HobbyKing Daily - Sbach 342 (2 min 28 sec)


Looks like it could be allot of fun. This looks like the dynam one but the wingspan on the dynam is 1250? It looks far better then the Mx2 they came out with a while back.

Looks like it has decent servos and huge control surfaces. Lets hope the electronics in it are decent enough. I think thats what was wrong with the Mx2. You had to swap out allot of stuff out of the box.

What do you think guys will these make a decent 3d park flyer?

It looks pretty, but then again, the MX2 looks pretty too, but flies like a pig. Don't know about the 2 9g servos they list, hard to believe that they'd hold up in a 55" wing, I'm assuming that they're the aileron servos. I'll take a wait and see approach on this one.

Waterslid eDecals

Great Looking plane, Definitely will be watch this thread. Curious to see what people will say about the waterslide decals. My HK Stinger 64 waterslide decals are flaking off like crazy and Byron's video shows the trailing edge to be a little ragged on the tail surfaces.

Fingers crossed

Looks nice, finally larger servos for the tail and real hinges...some one in china is listening a little. I think I'd have to try this one on the stock setup( if the servos are solid on the bench anyway...no jittering and center well). I also like the fact that it's being promoted as " sport/3d capable", and the mention of keeping it lighter for 3d with smaller batteries. This may be where my tax money is going.

"This is an email from hobbyking's backend warehouse.
We would like to inform you that your product(s) have been picked & are being sent to the front-end warehouse for packing.
It will take 24hrs for the box to arrive in the front-end warehouse, there it will be packed and shipped out to you.

I plan to check everything closely and if possible use all of the stock gear. Along the way I'll give you my opinions. I currently fly PNP models from Dynam and Airfield, so those are my fit and finish comparisons.

looks like they have released an orange version of this plane as well

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...00mm_PNF_.html





I think I prefer the original black one myself. Lets hope these make it to the Australian wharehouse soon. It would cost me about $200 after shipping for this bird atm. Plus some 4s lipos and some other things.

New HK Sbach vs Dynam Sbach

Fellas if any of you who ordered this Sbach might already have the same (but slightly smaller) version from Dynam, pls put up a comparison review soon.

Shipped, to where I am in ATL here, they're virtually the same price. I have the Dynam version and was thinking about getting a spare, then saw this thread.

May the best plane win!!
