Welcome to my build and review of the upcoming Finwing Sabre. Special thanks to Ben at Finwing for the opportunity to review this new FPV aircraft before it's general availability.

Without further ado let's get to it...

Initial thoughts:

The first thing you will notice is how well packaged the Sabre is. If you've owned the Penguin or AirTitan, you know exactly what I mean. It is two separate boxes enclosed in a thick heavy duty outer box that keeps everything safe while it finds it's way to your workbench.

Upon getting everything unpacked I saw just how very straightforward this build was going to be. The foam is EPO, so in the unfortunate event of an unexpected landing it'll be able to withstand (most unexpected landings that is...).

The design of the Sabre was definitely well thought out. There are multiple locations available by default to place your FPV and UHF equipment as well as up to 3 cameras.

There is a good amount of payload room for batteries and such in the main fuselage cavity as well as a "Loft" for your flight controller. I found this to work out great as the Ruby fits very nicely in this location.
