Sabre 35 Bush Plane

Check out these 4" GWS wheels for bush landings (aka: normal grass). They do weigh 8 grams vs 2 grams for the tiny stock wheels. For me the stock wheels only work well on pavement. Just about everything else ends with an endo. The other solution is to just hand catch it in a hover.

I went with larger wheels also for grass. The plane, actually, seems a little more stable in the air, and will taxi.

I try not to let the lg stop me from breaking props, but I fly like a wuss. I only order a dozen at a crack. Sweet vid, love the low snaps. Man I want to go slap mine around now, maybe this weekend. The forecast looks good, especially Sunday. My Sabre-X needs a good beating as well, I'm anxious to try out the new Xoar 15x6 prop. Feels like some serious pull with it.

Hey Guys, Last yr sold my sabre 47 w/ saito 82 and gear, gave up on hobby for a while after drive to field was killing me, now getting back into it from scratch to fly at closer field/park.
I don't like expo, no need dual rates and can control throws mechanically with control arms/horns, so I was going all Hobbyking Turnigy: simple transmitter +RX 4X FHSS 2.4ghz, Accucel-6 50W 6A Balancer/Charger, AE-45A Brushless ESC, MG90S, 1300 30c 11.1, then the sabre 35e with the ST.10 apc 11.47, please let me know your opinions...

All sounds good to me. If your at lower altitude you might try a 1060 DD prop, I'm pretty close to sea level and it works great for me.

Had good luck with hobbykings: Turnigy products in the past, most everything above is Turnigy. I am only going to build again if I can keep it under $200, hover well and staying with known quality parts.

I know it may put you over your budget, but I think you would be much better off in the long run getting a used DX7 or even 6i. In my opinion, a good reliable tx that one can count on is key to enjoying the hobby.

And, if you decide you want out of the hobby again, you shouldn't lose much on the resell.

Hope this helps.

Steve
