It is a nice, big, gentle and fully 3D capable machine all in one. My build was completely stock and very happy with it, right down to the stock pull-pull setup on the rudder...! There are of course lots of little things you can do to "jazz" it up a little, but not necessary if you are not interested. Looking forward to hearing more about your build... and post some pics if you can... Oh!, if you you will need the Aileron Servo Arm Extensions to get enough throw for crazy rolls! http://www.twistedhobbys.com/Carbon-...on-Arm-Kit.htm

Thanks Cdee
I have only flown the SBach once but i really liked it. Gravity is a plane hog! Anyways, i loved it like it was but i plan on adding long arms. I want to get all i can with out ripping off the ailerons. The thing i liked best about it was when i waterfall, it would not fall off to one side or the other like several of my other planes. It was rock solid. I cant wait. I will post pics also.

It is hard to believe Gravity would be hogging his own plane

Flew the SBach today in 20+ mph winds.

Had a rip roaring blast!

Nothing like flying backwards right in front of you.

I love this plane!

Very nice video. I must say the flight characteristics look very good indeed (of course, the pilot has alot to do with it too!!) - good job

This plane as a lot of wing (and aileron), provides for a good balance of slow flying and fun huckin'...

I do like the fact you can run this light... quite a nice feature, as you can still load it up with 2200 if you really want to I guess.

Tried it with the 78g motor and the 100g motor, in-fact the video actually has some flight of both in it. Both worked well, but with the 100g motor I was able to swing the 12x3.8sf prop, the thin electric props are a little more efficient, just kinda depends what feels good for the way you like to fly.

Thanks Aviefly... it was a fun project, been sitting on the raw video for some time, came together nicely in the end. Transition is one of my favorite parts of the video.

Thanks for the Video Cdee. Not too much new vids. out for the RCF Sbach latley. Plus I dont really fly with anyone here(lone pilot) It was Nice to watch someone else's Sbach for a Change. I Enjoyed your flying as well.

Still kinda figuring and comparing my Sbach to my other TH planes and Im really liking that its a floater. Feels light and easier to harrier than my 44 telink(wich likes to go a little faster). Im only now just figuring out the timing to doing 'rolling circles'. So the floaty feel of the Sbach gives me a chance to at least keep up with the orientation of the plane. Its my 48" 'pucker factor' trainer. Hehehe.

Thanks again to Twisted Hobbys for another great machine.
