Default New gas plane

ok so im looking to setup a new gas plane, I was looking at a sabre 47 with evolution 10cc, but noticed most 20cc profiles arnt that much more to setup... are there any good arf profiles for a dle 20 that are good for hard 3d and are high quality?

I know building is best quality but I dont have the time nor area to do that currently

Edit: or would the sabre47 with 10gx be a good option?

Well i have a 20cc Sbach arf that may be what you are looking for. Also i have the 60in sbach and yak 55 that may be a good fit for the 10cc i want to try it soon as i get some extra time.

i'd opt to expand your budget to a 30cc airframe

As long as it is under 6lbs you should be fine with the 10cc. I just got my 10cc delivered for a profile katana that is similar in size to the Sabre. It should come in at about 5.5lbs max.

There is a guy on the "other site" who has the 10cc and Sabre combination.

I would get a 30cc but what are some good profiles that size? I'm worried it may not fit in my car... Ya he said his sabre 47 was slightly over 5 pounds but it was so cold his motor cut out

Another plus for 30cc, is bigger motors retain heat better and are less likely to cut out in cold weather. Typically 30cc planes have a 72 inch ws, which is where airplanes start "flying on the wing" (smoother flying due to being past the knee in the Reynolds number curve.)
