Thanks, that's helpful as I have flown my friend's SU-29, so that gives me an even better idea.

These are all interesting answers to Mikes question. It's a bit of a turn around for RCF from what I understand as it's always been the Telinks that have been closer to that balsa feeling. Keep us informed if you decide to get one Mike.

Hey Dan,

If your were a bit closer geographically, I would most definitely have you fly the Sbach so you would have a better idea as to why we answered Mike how we did.

I have had the su-29 and have the telink Slick. I used them to practice whatever 3D or extreme aerobatics I was trying to learn or improve at the time. The Sbach has taken the place of the Telinks for that practice because of it’s balsa like characteristics. If I practice something with the Sbach I can fairly quickly and more easily duplicate it with my 51” AJ Slick.

I hope you get the chance to fly one soon. It’s a great learning tool and a blast to fly.

Shawn

+1 on everything Shawn said plus...

Mine feels close to my 48" Extreme Flight 300 EXP.

Flew them back to back last Saturday and experienced exactly what Shawn is talking about.

If this flies like the 48" I will be getting another one hahaha. Just got mine delivered yesterday but won't be able to work on it for a couple of weeks.

I am going to try the Aurora lighting system on it. Its getting dark early up here and this is the winter trainer.

Nothing can teach you like EPP.

Grats on the purchase Mike...!! I fly mine every chance I get, either at the park or the field, sometimes hand launch and catch or when at the field I strap the landing gear on and do ROG. It is a nice big plane that is very predictable and stable, yet you can throw it around like a much smaller plane if you want. I like mine the best with a 100g motor / 1600 3s lipo / 12x3.8 sf prop...

Did I miss something (again )?

Do you have a way of making the LG easily installable/removable?

Landing gear on this plane is in two halves and can be installed or removed by just cracking the respective screw lose that holds on each side, really nice and handy, literally takes less than a minute...

Thanks cdee, I will try it on the AXI 2808/24 with the 11 x 3.8 SF prop that is in my Extra Slick first, so that I can get a direct comparion power-wise and take it from there.

good plan.. I was looking for a little lower kv and larger slow fly prop in hopes that it would fit my flying style, and it did!! Also shimmed the motor for thrust as well, hovers are rock solid... If you have not yet seen my video, check it out on the page for the plane on the Twisted site.

Hi Cdee, What kinda flight times are you getting with a 100g and 1600 packs?

I have my timer set for 4 minutes, but usually go over 30 sec or so and have 20 to 25% left in the packs. Packs I use are the 25/45c NanoTechs, so you might get a little more with a different brand battery. This is based on pretty aggressive flying for most of the time. I tried 2200s this past week-end and was real happy with them too, after about the same amount of time there was still 50 to 60% left in the packs, these are 45/90c NanoTech packs.
