Landing Gear for 47in Sabre-47 Profile 3D Plane


INCREDIBLE 3D Learning machine(Posted on July 21, 2014)
My buddy and I cut our 3D teeth on this plane and the 35" Electric version. We went from precarious landings to lovely hovering, knife edges, pop tops and even harrier landings over this summer with these planes. The plane helps you learn the feeling of the fight envelope. Hard to describe the control and confidence these planes inspire without using the term - LOCKED IN. I can just feel what the plane is going to do. PLEASE PLEASE GET THESE BACK IN STOCK......There are three Sabre 47s flying at our field and other club members are chomping at the bit to buy one.

A ProBro electric(Posted on January 22, 2013)
I converted this plane to electric using a GForce 32, 60 amp ESC, 5 cell GForce battery and standard servos.
I simply used "L" aluminum bolted to the fuse for the motor mount; used 1/32" ply glued to the fuse side to mount the battery with velcro and strap. This plane is covered in monocote and is a simple build. This plane is pure 3D fun if you use glow power or electric. I found it easy to hover. This plane is only limited by your personal flying abilities. I highlly recommend it.
