This thing flies so well high alpha's, KE,s no problems at all can fly slow with confidence,but hovering I found a little harder at first as I've got to pulse the throttle to get it to come up high and straight.by the 3rd battery I was doing blenders 1foot high speed KE's across the field and back and still haven't tried the SFG's yet.
Today(Sunday) I went to the local hockey club,to use there carpark for a fly,it was a little windy with afew gusts,no idea what the wind speed was cause that didn't seem to matter for me that is
,doing my usual thing but this time it got away from me and flew over my head and lost it and I piled it into the ground(nose 1st
) but to my surprise it didn't explode(Tough little sucker
) but only cracked the underside of the cowl and bent the prop adapter
So it's fixed now with afew pieces of CF stripe and abit of CA and I used the motor&prop out of my Hyper Taxi,so for the moment it's all good to go...hey what effect will the lager prop have on this little beasty?
If you have the stock motor, the 2500kv, the recommended upgrade prop would be the GWS 5030. If you aren't familiar with the change over, the GWS blades are great, but need balancing. Also when you pull the stock blade off take care not to lose the small o-ring spacer that holds the prop away from the cowling.
The Sbach is a favorite of mine. Have many great flights with it.
