Question

Nitroplanes Aerosky 55" Extra and Sbach


Anybody have more information or photos of these planes? Looks like you can order them already from nitroplanes.

Subscribed... I really want a Sbach and am trying to decide between the HK and Dynam EPO's or a full balsa Sukhoi. It's the first plane that made me say "wow". Is there a Sbach in any of the simulators or at least a similar flying model?

I think this might be the extra:

Yo I hear ya!!! And just when I thought my credit card was starting to heal!!!

A 55-incher...now that's a big honkin flamie...I see the Extra has the sfg's on

Just looking at a pic, tho, the ailerons seem a bit skimpy for 3D?

Yeah, the extras look more like nice aerobatic planes, not exactly 3d with those control surfaces. The Sbachs look to have bigger control surfaces. A true 3d plane that size and weight would really need a step up in watts and worse yet, bigger batteries that I don't have.

Yeah Krex that's my take too...when you get up into this size & mass, it really takes some big control surfaces & fairly strong servos to get anywhere near true 3D...9g servos ain't gonna cut it...also, I was surprised only 2200mah on the batts? Id have thought min 2650's

Between the two, looks like the Sbach would have more pop

My initial reaction is quite positive. I look forward to getting it in the air in a week or two.

Found my first problem(s)


The supplied motor mount, prop adapter and spinner are designed to work with a very specific motor. :-(

I cannot figure out which motor from the Nitroplanes parts list.

I've got a Turnigy SK4250-650kv which should work well with the supplied 15x7 prop - which appears to be a clone of the APCe 15x7 prop.

I should be able to fabricate an alternate motor mount, but the layout doesn't make this as easy as a 'normal' balsa ARF. And I won't be able to use the stock spinner.
