Hobbyking Sbach 342 Gas 50cc 2210mm (ARF) (US Warehouse)

Hobbyking Sbach 342 Gas 50cc 2210mm (ARF) (US Warehouse)
Hobbyking Sbach 342 Gas 50cc 2210mm (ARF) (US Warehouse)

This stunning looking Sbach 342 is a pure, mean, 3D machine! The superb Ultra-light construction, which features a sheeted spine fuselage for strength, keeps the flying weight minimal, couple this with a 50cc gas engine or Turnigy Rotomax 50cc equivalent brushless motor and you have unlimited vertical performance!

The wings and horizontal stabilizers are plug in for easy transport, the tailfeathers are not flat sheet but full aerofoil, the control surfaces are easily large enough for 3D maneouvers. Rudder is pull/pull and high quality ball linked control rods are used throughout for precision and reliability. The pre-applied covering is glossy and of a very high standard, the colour scheme is ideal for orientation and looks superb in the classic Sbach scheme. This is a high quality 3D model that is also an ideal everyday sport flyer when set up on low rates, either way, its a real performer and a real looker!

Whats the interior with of the cowl? I want to install a XYZ 53 CC ENGINE.

You will have to butcher the cowl up and the plane will be under powered with the 53cc Better off with the RCG 55cc

Like I said below. I have this plane and showing a video of one flying doesn't show the how the model is constructed or that the pictures and of the plane do not match what you send out. The one they send you is a Totally different airframe than the one ihobbyking shows on their web page. Also HK, don't try to bury a real life review by posting the same thing 3 times.

I bought this ARF to replace my Pilot RC 50cc SBach that i had to sell. I was impressed with the pictures and it looked very similar in construction. I decided to save a couple hundred dollars and went with this Hobby King version. When I recieved it, I was convinced it was the same airplane. The quality is as good as any ARF I have built in my over 20 years experience. The hardest part on the build is getting the firewall angles setup correctly. Covering is top notch. It is very light for its size also. I did have to add a considerable amount of weight to the top of the firewall to balance with the DLE55, so it will take a heavy engine no problem without balance issues. Make sure to put a incidence meter on the stabs when bolting them on to make sure they are at 0 degrese to the wings. There is wiggle room and they will be off enough to cause trimming problems. My initial flight went problem free. This plane must have been built with helium infused wood. It flies soooo light. Knife edge flight is almost hands off. I was particular in wanting the proper red ultimate spinner, and after paying 80 dollars off of ebay for the only one I could find, it bridged the gap price wise to the Pilot, but it is still a good bit cheaper still, and you would not know the difference if you had them side by side. I highley recomend this plane to anyone looking for a 50cc unlimited/3D aerobat.

I would have to say that I was amazed at how great this kit look upon receipt! The control surfaces are not hinged, though slotted and hinges inserted (except for rudder -typical). The landing gear is aluminum. The wing & stag fuselage tubes are CF but the tubes themselves are aluminum. For the price - it's a STEAL! I love that you have to assembly the firewall because I am going to go with a ZDZ60RV and its casing forces you to push the firewall back or put the carb inside the fuse. I'm going with Power HD 9150 servos on control surfaces except rudder. Its going to have a Hitec 7954 for rudder. Going to run 2 LiFe packs for receiver. Going to stat building it right after Xmas - I hope! I'll re-post after test flight.

This is NOT the perfect kit like you would imagine... I had an original pilot-RC 50cc Sbach before this one and this hobbyking version seems like it's the old-version pilot-rc kits. There will be many bad & missing parts like. For example, they give you 4 X 80mm pushrods that is unusable because you need 2x 45mm and 2x 160mm. Missing many m3 screws and nuts etc'... Hobbyking didn't respond to my request for the missing/replacement parts. Also, you'll need to work really hard to make this kit fly. For example, both wing and elevator aluminum tube did not fit the holes. I literally spent 10 hours scrubbing the holes to fit the tube. It was very frustrating. Shipping was about $130 to Los Angeles... What a ripoff. I advice is get the real thing directly from the manufacture. Not through HK.

I OWN THIS MODEL. received it less than a month ago (July 2015). If your looking at buying this model it is nothing like what is shown other than that it's a Sbach model. The model shown is the photos is basically a Pilot RC model but is not even close to what you get when you order it. I has a fixed firewall not adjustable. The hardware for your silencer is not part of the kit. there is no manual PERIOD, hardware is quite cheap. Also the wings may say 2210mm or 89" but the fuselage is quite narrow even smaller than my 25pcnt Extra 300. My 89" AJ slick makes this look little. The plywood for the frame is very soft and does NOT feel like aircraft quality plywood. Hope this helps anyone looking at this model. One more thing, the video is worthless unless you go and buy a Pilot RC Plane it won't help a bit for the plane they send out.
