Default Pilot Rc Sbach 73' electric

Hi guys,

I am considering to convert the Pilot rc Sbach 73' to electric.

the setup i will use is:

motor: axi 5325/16
esc: phoenix 120A
prop: 22x10 apc
batteries: 6S rino 4900mAh

the final weight is estimate to 4650-4950gr

this setup is used by many pilots on the sebart su29 140e, the krill thunder 3d and the extreme flight extra 79'

what do you think?

Hi

I just finish my sbach today. I used the axi 5325/16 with 6s lipo, phoenix 125A esc and 22x10 prop.
The CG was 1cm back from the wing tube. I want it a litle tailheavy so i think it would be ok.
Final weight 5050gr.

Tomorrow i wil do the maiden flight and i will tell you my impressions.

safe landings to all!!!

Hi,

Last Wednesday i made the first flight with my sbach.
The plane was flying very well, very stable and i had a lot of power with the 6s setup i use.
I only used 2 clicks of trim on elevator up and it was flight staight and level.
After the 1st flight I added 120gr on the nose to balance. After that the plane was perfect with nice slow landings and low stall speed.
Final weight 5150gr (not bad)
The next few flights were awsome with some hovering, flat spins, knife edge spins, circuit roll, everything without any problem.
With the 6s 4900mAh lipo i have 6-7 min of flying (mix 3d and aerobatic)

Overall, I am very happy with my plane and my setup

hi guys,

i have near to 30 flights now with the sbach. Only 10 flights ago i figure where the correct cg is. The manual is a the same for all the 30cc planes so the cg is incorrect.
with the new cg the plane is very nice, stable and very predictable. The 6 cell lipo setup with the axi 5325/16 and 22x10 apc prop is produces more than enough power for 3d. It hovers at 1/2 throttle. the k.e is ok with a little coupling to the fuse. Overall the plane flies very light.
