The vertical launch did look spectacular. The commentator just needs to get a bit more enthusiasm going on

They say 4.5 to 120n all the video of the turbine version is with the 120.....

If this is your first jet, this would be just about the worst choice ever........

I have the SAB Havok, and because that’s what I think.....if you think it will be a great trainer underpowered with a K45G3 go ahead said that, I don’t believe it’s a good idea!

I ordered mine. Hopefully HeliDirect/SABAvio USA will get them in the next week or so, and then on to me. The accessories such as thrust vectoring and turbine conversion are not yet available for order on their website.

Hello,
I just test flew my Drake last week.
The airframe is great but the retract units from SAB have very poor instructions.
I wasn't able to get the gear doors to operate thru the SAB Unit although there is a provision
Also while the retracts worked perfectly on the ground, It refused to work in the air after take off
So test flight was with Gear down and doors open.
Has anybody a better understanding of the SAB retracts ? Is there some setting to maybe increase the stalling current to the retract motors ?
Any ideas what it should be ?
Regards
Nandan

You running the controller on 2s 8.4v?
All the SAB retracts I have been involved with only worked if the model speed was kept down and no hard G when trying to retract, they trip out.
Brakes are worse than retracts 🙂
