    Item Description:

    Yes you read it correctly this is a 31lb RTF 40% airplane. This thing is amazing to fly super stable and goes where you point it. It handles the wind better than any other 40% I have flown (and I've had the privilege of flying several of them). Even though it is rock solid in gusty winds it flies light as a feather and is very forgiving. Just an amazing bird.

    This is the Same Plane that Colton Clark flew at the Main Flight Line at Joe Nall. It needs a new home where it can get flown more I only has had 18 flights since Joe Nall last year.

    This hyperlight 40% Sbach 342 is simply amazing in performance and design. Beautifully handcrafted with extensive use of carbon fiber structure the rigidity is greater than a typical wood ARF at a much lower weight. Equipped with a DA-120 mounted inside of beautiful, truly scale, bolt-free cowl. This model was desgined to look as scale as possible while retaining awesome flight characteristics.

    Team USA F3A competitor Brett Wickizer says This is your best flying 40% that I have flow

    And he has flown all of my planes.
