I'd really like to know how this compares to the Sbach. For the price it's definitely the better deal. I'd like to know how much power it's got.

Remember Binary's law of RC airplanes.

I believe it's the fourth law that states, If you purchase a new airplane the next week will contain high winds, rain and/or snow.

Mmh, nice - didn't know about those. Exact same weight as the Zippy 180 mAh, should be good. And a 5C charge. Sweet.

Guess that goes on the shopping list - thanks!

Ok it's been flown! I flew 2 batteries in it today in 12-15 mph winds! It's an ok performer. It does have pretty good power too. It is not as much power as the Sbach though. I also noticed that it loves to eat batteries! 4 minutes tops on 240mah cells! Also, if you are using this battery like me you will need to modify the battery compartment. My CG was way too far forward . I figured in the wind it would be fine and it was . Also to note, my right servo has some kind of strange flutter or a high speed twitch? All in all I need calmer conditions to really put it through it's paces.

Sounds like you have a jittery defective servo...that will also draw some extra power.

Thanks for the report!
Yes and the magnets on my hatch must have become demagnatized on the jet ride over.... They are very weak and I think a piece of tape will become necessary to secure the hatch.

You wanna swap out that dodgy servo's before it lets you down 4 mins is a poor flight time. lets see what the numbers are on a windless day with the servo replaced. I reckon you should get well over 4.

c'mon, with one battery he may have flown it for a max of 2.5 mins before making that decision

The manual says COG 126mm but with the 180 batt it seems further forward?

You misunderstand my point completely.

Some people purchase micros thinking they are going to be easy to fly like their larger counterparts then realize that they don't have the skills required to handle such as a twitchy plane.

I'd be willing to wager that a few people who have flown larger planes can't handle the mircos and thus probably why you see quick sales. They finally try one because it's cheap, but then see its not for them.

It sounds like that plane there may be one of those situations.
