great 3D balsa plane Review by Pete
Overall

When I decided to try 3D flying; I've bought bunch of 3D foamies. They were hit and misses.
This balsa 3D plane was easy to build and flies superb. It has become my favorite, enough said. (Posted on 1/26/2016)
Overall a great 3D plane. Review by Gordon

This is the best flying plane I've ever had in 35 years of RC flying.
It's so easy to learn 3D on and can take a beating.
It's the perfect size to fit in your car and still be easy to see when in the air.
If and when they are back in stock, I would buy 3 or 4 of them so you will always have one to fly.
It's the kind of plane you never get tired of flying.
Very pilot should have one in the hanger.

Fantastic aircraft. Review by Zack

Overall

Have been putting this plane to the test over the past few months and it is definitely some of the most fun I've had with a plane out of my 10+ years of flying. Its set up with the G-force E400 motor, 1300 mah battery and emax servos. A bit too tail heavy with this setup but added some weight to the front and all is good. It is a very smooth and agile flier. Plenty of power at hand, it can pull straight up out of a hover.

The build process was excellent. Took a couple of nights to put it together, but could really be built in a night if youre really eager. I have put it through many stressful situations to test its durability and it has held up well. I did snap the landing gear off, but this was due to pilot error and landing in tall grass to fast. The bright side to this is that the gear snapping caused no damage to the frame of the plane (and I actually prefer to fly it without the gear).

The only negative thing I can comment on is that the control horns are a bit weak and the pushrod connectors that come with the kit are junk. However, just take care with control horns and pick up some beefier pushrod connectors and you'll be good to go.

Bottom line: Do not hesitate to buy and put one of these together. (Posted on 5/31/2014)
excellent flying, well built airplane Review by nate

Overall
I had some skepticism of this airplane mostly due to the low cost and "you get what you pay for" type attitude, but in this case that saying does not apply. This airplane flies great, builds easy, and is well built. I could not believe the low price. I crashed my Eflite edge profile balsa and needed a replacement. This plane has all the electronics from the Eflite; suppo 2217-9 motor, 1500mah nanotech, and it is slightly tail heavy. The punch out of hover is decent, not excellent. I will be upgrading the motor soon. I hope this plane is still around when I need a replacement because I found my new favorite. Oh and the landing gear will work well if you are landing on asphalt/pavement, but because I am flying in my backyard I went to larger wheels and it has held up fine. (Posted on 1/19/2014)
A must buy for a sihouette aerobatic plane. Review by John
Overall
Quality

This is a beautiful flying plane. It will do slow, or fast to suit your needs at the moment. Aerobatics are easy. Makes anyone look accomplished.

My only gripe is that I needed to put some supports on the landing gear. I used fishing line run from the gear to the nose to keep the gear from flopping backwards. I also strung some line across the gear to keep it from flexing too much.

This is the plane that I fly the most. (Posted on 11/13/2013)

It flies great. The hardware needed to be upgraded and the instructions are vague, but totally worth buying, especially for the price. Buy it and you will love it too. (Posted on 5/1/2013)

Best budget plane I have. My only complaints is the hardware and instructions. A trip to my LHS and I was out flying. It is light weight and has plenty of power with the recommended motor, just reinforce the motor mount. I get over 10 minutes of flight time with a 3s 1500 mah lipo. Even flies well in wind. Get this plane, you will love it. (Posted on 4/25/2013)

i'm back to continue my review of the sabre35, man what a great plane, i put the super tigre .10 brushless motor in it. really pleased with this setup, the plane is more rugged than i expected, i've dumped it a few times with very minimal damage, nothing that would deadline the plane, in fact i'm so happy with it, i just ordered a back up kit (Posted on 2/11/2013)
One tough bird Review by Guitar George

Overall
This thing has survived dozens of crashes that would have totally destroyed most planes and still flies great. G-400 will fly it OK but tail heavy.SuperTigre 10 balances just right. Only negative is the stock hardware is basically useless. Make some CF pushrods if you want wheels bend your own gear and get some bigger tires. Dial in 30% flaperons for awesome waterfalls, knife-edge spins and instant takeoffs. Think I'll try the SpazCap next.

I fit this plane with a GT2215/09 motor hooked to a 30 amp ESC spinning a 10 X 5 pprop using 1300 and/or 1600 MaH battery also 9 gram servos all supplied by Dan at Lazer Toyz in Cleveland Oh. This plane is a joy to fly it will go straight to the clouds in a instant or float through the air with nearly no help from the motor. 3D no problem! great product plan to order a couple more after the holidays that way i wont have to worry about being able to get another one in the future (Posted on 12/19/2012)
Great plane Review by Richard

Love this plane! I set it up with a 2836 1170kv motor, a 12x5 prop, a 1300 3s battery, and a 40 amp ESC.
The 5" CG seems to be spot on and my flying weight is 24oz. The the only thing I changed were the airelon rods as they are subject to some flex. I went slightly larger and it flies great. Did I mention I love this plane! (Posted on 11/10/2012)

ordered and recieved the plane in a timely manner, out of the box the plane was flawless, had to iron a few wrinkles after a few days, but that is expected, i installed a super tigre .10 brushless(69g), shes a vertical rocket, the plane has nice handling characteristics, fast or slow, i love it, by far the best flying plane of my fleet, and the most fun (Posted on 10/30/2012)
