RC Model of the Savage Bobber

The full-size Bobber is the result of many years of experience building Savages. Robust, easy to handle and maintain, it is beautiful, it is FUN! The Savage Bobber is the plane that makes you daydream! The RC version of the Savage Bobber has been designed in the same spirit, that of a FUN plane, amazing and easy to fly. With its 600g in flight weight, it is probably the lightest RC aircraft in the 1m wingspan category. To achieve this featherlight weight which also allows it to fly extremely slowly, another of the characteristics of this aircraft, its equipment had to be very light. It flies perfectly with a 1300mah 2s battery and its 6 servos weigh only 3.7g. each The controller was also chosen to be very light.

Features:

  • Super Light
  • Super slow flying
  • Big hand-made foam wheels

Technical specifications:

  • Wingspan: 1000mm
  • Length: 700mm
  • Flying weight: about 600g
  • Motor: MM2208 2600KV
  • Prop: 7inch
  • ESC: 20A
  • 6x Servo: 3.7g

Looks great, wish it was smaller. Will be interesting to see more details and test flights.
I wonder what the light weight controller is referring to in the description

"The controller was also chosen to be very light."

Looks a bit large for indoor flight and too light weight for prevailing winds here.

Lightest 40" plane? If you have some balsa lying around you could do a bit better:

I wonder if there will be a U.S. distributor.

The Savage Bobber definitely has that 'cool factor'.

Landing gear seems a bit spindly though especially since it lacks the center suspension components.

Ok, that makes sense. I was thinking flight controller which didn't make sense to me.

Yeah 600 grams for the size good but not great. You can do better.

My Jr Skylark is only a tiny bit smaller in wingspan and came in at 18 ounces/510g. And it's a twin..

But this does look really good! I was surprised to see it was an ARF. I was already thinking about clearing off the building board for it..

It says 580-620g right there in the thumbnail That's quite a bit more narrow than 500-600.

Which probably means it's more like 700 in reality. :P

Not a criticism, like I said it's a good weight but it's by no means the "lightest" you could do with that wingspan.
