Consider loading the plan onto a memory stick and taking to a print shop.

This would be my preferred option and to use my home printer for specific parts of the plan that I need to cut up.

Yes, and if you do want to print specific areas at any scale use the "Take a snapshot" function in the "edit" pulldown

Still too much snow on the field here!

Once I marked out the proper Cof G according to the plans I was able to balance the plane with a 1800 battery placed fairly far back. It looks like my airflow wont be as restricted as I thought. I just have to finish tidying up my wiring and I'll be finished.

13/03/2019 13:20:09

Yes - I'm also quite concerned, my 2200 battery is 25mm x 35mm frontal area and will pretty much block the air intake opening.

12/03/2019 12:24:06

There is hope for me then as my AUW with the 2200 will be 21.68 oz. I need to install the 2200 as far forward as possible to achieve the C of G on the drawing. It looks like I should have planed off more balsa at the rear of the plane.

I installed the FMS 3s in my Sabre and my preliminary testing agreed with the 600g thrust, I got 559 grams with 10.4 Volts in my battery,


I'm not sure how easy it will be to launch though as it weighs 15.37 oz with everything installed except the battery and my batteries weight:

1300 is 3.67 oz

1800 is 4.90 oz

2200 is 6.31 oz


I won't be able to fly it for a while as we still have about 2 feet of snow on the field.

Tony, the AEO fan was out of stock when I started my build so I used the FMS fan. I haven't flown it yet as we still have over 2 feet of snow at our field.

Hi tony - I used mainly DELUX "Super Phatic" glue on mine.

Also, I live in Canada and it wasn't practical to order a canopy from Tony so I used a clear one and sprayed the inside with a couple of coats of translucent green. The model isn't scale and I didn't want to detail the cockpit.

Good luck on your build, I had a great time building mine.

I used the FMS 11 blade unit in my Sabre Jet as the 8 blade AEO unit wasn't available. It's very smooth, but I will probably need an 1800 3S battery.  I bought it at BangGood

Preshaping the fairing blocks works well for me also. I needed to do that on my Grumpy Tigercub model.

Yes some very good people there, also many not so good. Andy Knunz is a Spektrum engineer who is one of the helpful ones

Great looking build, I like the underneath cheater hole.and very tidy wiring job. I'm just installing my servos now and am shortening the wire leads to keep it neat inside my Sabre Jet. I'll be very interested in your flying report.

08/01/2019 15:14:55

I would think they would both be ±

elevator ±8

aileron ±4

Maybe Tony will clear this up for us.

It's pretty much in the middle of the drawing.

Very interesting project - how did you make the snake pathways through the fuse?
