    Well, I finally caught up with my friend Alex and had him fly my SBach.
    Some day I hope to have skills like this...

    He sure knows how to make it dance. I took mine out today and it feels better everytime I fly it.

    I tried Dave's trick on mine-leaving out the servo arm screws? Needless to say, I will be repairing the nose after a vertical impact on the street! Elevator arm popped right off. That's one of the drawbacks to flying in the yard. The street isn't very soft for unplanned landings! Haha.

    Wasn't a matter of getting used to it really...with my build I had a few issues with balance and setup...as soon as I got the CoG right and it trimmed properly it flew great...I'm still seeing a ton of wing flex so I took it easy on my flights...it's slow speed ability is awesome....

    It really depends on the amp draw of your power system, but 25c would be ok for something like a mjv3 on 2s.

    The plane flies really easy but is not a bank and yank parkjet. You need to use rudder to turn and ailerons to keep it flat in turns. 3d is a different way of flying. I remember someone having a really hard time of it but most get used to it after a few minutes.

    The A10 MK2, the DH Mosquito, and the SBACH 342 Profile. No worries, I know a 3D plane is not in my wheelhouse yet. But I am in this hobby for keeps, so I like acquiring plans for future projects, and will build when my flying skills dictate I am ready. :) But you have some erally nice planes over there, so I will collect all that I want to build. No idea where I am going to store all of these planes i am building. :)

    The simple to build and easy to fly planes in my opinion are the....

    F-16 profile mk2.
    Alpha Jet mk2.

    They can both be built over a weekend and setup is simple enough to agree with most any radio system.
