3D Machine!!! Review by Jonathan
So I'm running a Magnum 91 XL, Merlin Glow Plug, 6 Oz fuel tank.
LIFE battery onboard...

Excellent plane to learn 3D Aerobatics!
This Sabre 47 will do anything you throw at it.

The hardware package is complete. The only items I changed out were the clevises.

I recommend using thin CA or blue Loctite on the white pieces that screw onto the bolts running through each surface. I noticed that the ailerons were changing Trim settings on me.
Those are huge ailerons so the force is significant at the connection piece I'm referring to.

When I crash I sure hope that VH still carries this plane!

Everyone watches the Sabre 47 when it's airborne!

Awesome plane Value Hobby!!!

Thank you very much! (Posted on 11/27/2017)
Nothing but fun Review by Dave
Heard about this plane on Profile Brotherhood. Built it electric with a GForce 4250 and a quality 14x6 wooden prop and Value Hobby's GForce 4s 4000 lipo. Motor and batts barely warmish after flight. The only negatives are that the linkages and landing gear need to be upgraded to professional quality. Beside these annoyances I am very happy with this plane. It's does all 3D tricks effortlessly, is built very strong and will easily last for years unless you bash it up. It's in my top 7 RC planes, out of 35 or so. Go for it. (Posted on 8/17/2017)
INCREDIBLE 3D Learning machine Review by DCWFLIES
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. (Posted on 7/21/2014)
A ProBro electric Review by Roger
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. (Posted on 1/22/2013)
