I bought that 32" Sbach as a kit from Mike at www.E-foamy.com
. I really liked the looks of the Sbach ( I think a lot of Mike's company and his planes) but it (the kit) has a quirk as far as I'm concerned. The distance between the trailing edge of the wing and the leading edge of the horizontal stabilizer is way less than the width of the wing measured along the fusalage. This "short coupling" makes the plane a real handful for me to fly. This kit is the only one I've see that is true
to the actual Sbach's looks except for the fact that the wing and hor. stab. are on the same line. I like that because it keeps the look authentic.
Mike is an expert with 3D planes so he makes it look easy to fly but I found it a handful when compared to his Yak 55 and Edge 540. If you look at most of the Epp 3d planes, the distance between the trailing edge of the wing and horizontal stabilizer is slightly greater than the wing width at the fusalage. They are both on the same horizontal plane so the air coming off of the wing doesn't disturb the hor. stab. With this plane, I think it does.
I really like the looks of the Sbach so I've moved the hor. stab. up to an approximate position it lies in on the real Sbach and moved the wing down to it's approximate position on the real airplane. At present I've got the servos and receiver mounted and will get the rest of the gear on as time permits. I am looking forward to getting it airborne in the next month.
This little Sukhoi 31 has the hor. stab. in the correct position so I built it to see how it flew, hoping to use that experience to work on the Sbach. I got a nice little airplane for my hanger out of the process.
