Re: Goldwing Airplanes 50cc Sbach 342

these days most ARF's are good some need a little more tweeking than others. always go over the glue joints on the entire airframe with CA before assembly. make sure all control horns dowels and hinges are secure then give the seams on the ultracote a once over with the Iron and dont forget to heat gun the large areas to tighten up. I see so many guys with bargain planes but they dont take the time to "go over" and tighten it up and within a couple flights its wadded up in the dirt.

Gold Wing is the factory who makes EG Aircraft and Slipstream, among others. They are very high quality.

As Aviti pointed out above, the RedwingRC.com site has build and flight videos of the plane. It looks very impressive. I am seriously contemplating adding one to my hangar.

Re: Goldwing Airplanes 50cc Sbach 342

I had a 50 and a 30 size. The 50 was bought by a friend before I finished it. Both fly great. The kits have good Quality everything fit together nice. I had a tight fit on the cowl of the 50. Got them both at Redwing RC. I still have the 30 and get to fly the 50 every time we go flying. I have become a big fan of Sbochs the last few months.

Re: Goldwing Airplanes 50cc Sbach 342

I've flown both the 30 and 50cc Sbachs from Redwing. Tim at Redwing is a local flying buddy. While they both will fly precision, they excel in 3D flying. Both lock into an upright harrier better than any plane I've ever flown. Take a look at the flying videos on Redwing's site. I did a great deal of the flying for the 30cc Sbach video myself.

By the way, I'm not a Redwing sponsored pilot or affiliated with them. I've just had the opportunity to fly the planes.

Re: Goldwing Airplanes 50cc Sbach 342

Here is the video of the 3rd flight on the plane. It was set up way to tail heavy for us and we ended up moving the batteries forward as much as we could. As you can see. Bob got used to it by the end of the flight. The engine is still breaking in so he was babying it a little.
