I purchased 4 flight batteries with the e-flite connector on them and wish to use them on other ESC's. Having a hard time finding a e-flite style JST-xh connections.
Ebay is where I bought mine for the UMX connectors..
your local hobby shop could order them for you

Also don't forget RCBabbel here. He does some really nice soldering work and might be able to make one for you as well.

My original old sbach is a heavy porker due to many crashes and repairs.
It ran out of range many times with my "toy" transmitter that also had no expo.

Recently I flew it many times with my new DX6i transmitter but I noticed that its wings have many fine cracks. So I painted it with acrilic varathane and now it is much stronger but weighs 2 grams more.

It weighs 92 grams with the little 180mAh battery it came with. Its spec's say 75 grams for the new one.

Wow that's is heavy! Mine is at 84g with FPV gear and it wants to tip stall when the throttle is below 1/2~! Not that much fun to fly, take the FPV gear off and its back to 68g AUW and zips around. What are you using to repair your Sbach after crashes? 92g seems a bit much for just repairs (I've crashed quite a few times, but my Sbach doesn't gain that much weight)

I don't have photos, but it's pretty obvious where stuff goes inside. There are depressions molded into the foam where the receiver and two servos go.

Hey RC,

Did you ever maiden your Sbach 3D? I don't recall seeing your flight-report. Still waiting for some flying wx so I can try out my new Hyp 240 3s BB in the S3D. Looks like we may get some decent flying wx on Monday.

Just wanted to say I flew my Sbach today with some Nano 300s on the 2300kv/5043 combo and really love this thing!
My lady and I could not tell a difference in speed vs my Stryker 180

I use BB240 3S in my B3D and Sbach with great results
Correct me if I'm wrong here RC but I think that I may have been the first to order some 240s in 3S, I seem to remember you thought that I was a nutter!!!

Btw, I never got an Sbach 3D. As much as I wanted one I was only allowed 1 more plane. I chose the EQQ over the S3D and UM Spitfire...
(Still might get one later though )

Just a topical reference to the Sbach 3D that was mentioned...

The UMX Mig15 uses the same board, albeit with different AS3X settings and a completely different motor. You could easily make an EPP/depron foamy as the Sbach has the 4 seperate servos. You could probably adapt the internals to any number of micros.
