Details

Click to See Items Needed to Complete (3S Setup)

Sabre is constructed from 8mm EPP sheet. 8mm EPP is much stiffer and more durable than 3mm or 5mm EPP, so less reinforcements are required. The fuselage and wing incorporates one carbon fiber square tube and strip.

The assembly is easy because you don't need to connect carbon fiber rods between the fuselage and wings for reinforcements.

Excellent product and flyer Review by Mark

Built and flown in 1 afternoon.
The Sabre is by far the best flat plate foamy I have flown. I was performing every maneuver on test flight. Great for flying low and in front of you. Knife edges are locked in and almost at a stop. Climbs in a flat spin inverted or upright. Worth every penny. (Posted on 3/19/2016)
A fast build of a great flying plane for calm days Review by Robert

Overall
I've been learning on my EPP Prime, but wanted a smaller airframe that I could fly around the yard. At 32", this one fit the bill.

I took this out for its maiden flight on Saturday, the 7th of March. Winds were a steady 4 - 5 mph with occasional gusts to 8. Launch was easy and uneventful. I'm just learning 3D, but I was able to pop this into a wobbly hover with ease. Through the day, I got about 12 flights between myself and a flying buddy. He liked it so much that I ordered one for him too.

The instructions are clear enough, but check out spastic's build log on RCGroups for helpful hints.

The MT2206 has plenty of power on a APC 8x3.8SF or 8x4.7SF. A 450mAH 3S battery gives an easy 4 - 5 minutes of flight before gently floating down for a landing. Knife edge passes are clean as are loops, rolls and inverted flying. That's about all I can do at this point, but I'm learning a lot with this one.

I reinforced the aileron and rudder hinges with Beacon's QuickGrip and tape after the ailerons showed signs of tearing. It's a simple and quick fix. (Posted on 3/9/2015)
