    Did somebody mention a chainsaw? :D (this song and band is a bit annoying, so you can skip ahead to the 40 second mark if you can't watch that long.

    I got my Sbach glued together tonight. Electronics going in on my next build session.
    Plane feels just the right size for good 3D. Not too big or too small. No weak spots either.

    I'll be flying off the MicroJet V3. Going to take one more look to see if I have any more 2 cells around.
    If not, I'll be going off the 6x3x3 on a 3 cell 1300mah.

    Dave,

    It is great for 3D! It will hang on the prop, do knife edge, inverted and is just an overall fun plane.

    "DRUNK BUILD" Built this as fast as I could with parts available.
    Hot glue all around and I wasn't neat about it.
    Despite being thrown together the plane looks and feels really good.
    My control throws might be a bit low, but I can work with that.
    Flying soon!

    That looks pretty neat and tidy to me Dave, although I might be drunk looking at it, haha. No, it looks really good! Hope you get out with it soon. Love the checker cab accents! I'll have to try that.

    I saw those checkered stickers at the Hobby shop and thought, "If I ever do another 3D plane..."
    I forgot to mention, I'm going to fly it FIRST without the wing verticals on and then put them on to see if/what difference I see/feel. Fun little "before and after" experiment. Might do them on one wing too, etc.
    If all goes well, I'll be flying and filming it in the next couple days.

    Excellent dave! High expo on rudder and elevator helps a lot, those can be sensitive!

    It's really easy to fly huh? Nice easy stunts. You got such a nice flying field.

    Anyone else do the "down and to the right" on their motor mounting?
    Or anyone NOT do "down and to the right" and how do you like it?

    Yes , very easy to fly.
    The field is an AMA club field that is one mile from my home. Very handy. After a week of rain it was nice to get it mowed and rolled smooth.
    My foamies don't care much but the big birds are grateful.
    On weekends it is usually just me and my buddy using the field.

    I did a small amount of down but no side thrust.
    Being a 3d plane I am not trying to flying straight and level at full throttle very often so it is hard to assess.
    I do notice some tendency to roll when I gun the throttle while hovering. Probably due to the 10x 6 prop I'm using.

    Mine is an MJv3 on 2s and an 8x4x3 prop. The three blade returned less torque roll so I stayed with that. You lose only a little bit snap. ..not as bad as I would have thought, over a two blade prop.

    ...and yes. Just a whisker of down tilt on the motor mount and it helps a lot in holding a hover.

    You're good to go

    I see this in Lowe's now too. ..marked XPS
     
  20. The foam from lowes in my experience gets a little stiffer once you paint it with the onion skin off using acrylic based paints... I dont know if the difference is significant but it feels like its stronger...
    I think it absorbs the paint better than other foams do...
