Default E-flight UMX Sbach......AWESOME!

Is anyone else as CRAZY about this plane as i am?? Ive got about a half dozen flights logged on this thing and i swear this plane MAKES a BAD pilot look good!...As much as i love my Beast, the Sbach is so stable and PREDICTABLE at low speeds its just unreal! I cant help but wonder what the UMX Yak 54 is like??? The Sbach is one GREAT plane!

It is also pretty darn durable. I have had some... um... unfortunate incidents and done many repairs and still flying like a champ. My eyes aren't so good any more so I have a hard time with orientation when it gets very far away because of being small.

Yeah, I had one. Had a really good time with it. Gave it to my son, who after a bunch of flights, piled it in. One servo got pulled out of the foam. He glued the servo back in, and after that, the tiny servo was inoperative. Took a look at it, and found a tiny bit of glue on the tiny gear. A fingernail pulled that glue off, and it's back to flying again.

That is a very nice model. But it is most definitely NOT a trainer!!!

I can imagine what fun the Sbach is. I have the UMX mini Beast. Someone commented at the field how stable it appeared. I didn't think it flew right. Got to checking and it had UP thrust. I did a little work inside to tilt the motor and now have just a tad of down thrust. It is a different flying airplane, much better.
What fun.

I love my Carbon Cub. I had the little Sbach and piled it in at the gym one Friday eve. It hasn't been right ever since. The ESC acts goofy and I have changed motors, but to no avail. It now is a desk ornament.
