I used Propdrive V2 4258/500 Kv, Emax 14 x 7 prop, ZTW Gecko 85A ESC, and 4 Hitec BB HV .14/69 servos.
Good flight time and plenty of vertical.

I don't really time it but about 5 to 6 min with about 1/2 the battery left. Depending on throttle you could get more or less.

Great, mine is coming soon. I have this exact motor but I think there is a problem with its windings or magnet so can't take a chance and use it. May go Nitro or get another motor...

Just got it in, what a beautiful plane and the colors are way cool. Light construction was a nice surprise.
This one came with wing tip generators!
I'll have to decide for quiet clean Electric power or Nitro 4 cycle unlimited long flight times power....Decisions decisions....

Sam Ehab -what 4 stroke engine are you going to install if you go Ic?

Im considering this or the larger phoenix sbach.

I like the color of this small Sbach vs the larger one from Phoenix. The plane frame is extra light.
OS 46 FX, OS 61FX, Old OS 60 FS (needs a simple going through and may be bearings) or a great well broken in Saito 72 FS.
Or electric propdrive 500kv on 5-6S.....have not decided yet. Next week or so, I may just assemble it and decide on power later.

Yeah it has a great color and i like the size for easy transport and store. I consider between a saito 62 or 82. Im not looking for a 3d plane just a regular sport/aerobatic plane.

Electric


I have many of both. Considering the light structure I think it is best for a smooth electric with a well balanced prop.
That is what I have and like it. Just my 2 cents worth.

Yeah electric is a great option.

Well, it is finished minus decals. Balances perfect. I hope I'll get 7-8 min flt times on a 4500 6S Compact..

man she looks nice! that orange color is spot on.
Is that the stock spinner?
Aug 28, 2019, 07:24 PM

Yes, stock spinner and the red color don't match well with Orange! I may change it to black and paint the LG black too. I have not installed the LG plastic fairings yet. Next few days I'll get it set up and tuned once the Rx arrives.

Looks great, Sam. I prefer the look of most planes w/o the clutter of lots of small stickers so that Sbach looks sweet to me.

Did you resolve the issues with the motor/prop combo?

Thx Dave and fille_swe. I will test it soon, I think I'll use 14x8 or 14x10? What do you think?
Motor is specd at 1300w, I have a couple of 5S and few 6S.
