This tiny Sabre is amazing, EPO foam combined with it's featherweight stats means it will be very forgiving of the odd less than 100% landing. The 35mm Fan Unit & ESC are pre-installed as are the aileron and elevator servo's, the model comes in 1 piece so all you have to do when it arrives is connect the control rods. The supplied 4 Channel 2.4ghz Transmitter is pre-bound to the pre-fitted micro RX to speed up set up time, the transmitter features servo reverse and trims for each channel.
The box the model arrives in is really handy for not only transporting the model to prevent hanger rash but the spare pockets in the packing foam are ideal for carrying spare Lipoly's and you will have so much fun with this, I would carry a few! The supplied charger will operate from a 12v supply and charges through the JST-XH balance lead. All you need now is a flying buddy armed with the Micro Mig 15 for a tennis court dogfight!

i have a f86 sabre 4ch transmitter that come with the plane and didnt have a bind button???? i know this is dumb but can i bind it with this micro orangerx receiver?....please help. i dont want to buy another transmitter...Excellent looking plane. Really good quality.
Only issue I had was that I could not get it off the ground. I had to remove the bombs at the bottom of the wings, then I was able to. But, you need to take off at 100pcnt throttle, and then give it a hard hand launch into the wind. Once you have speed and any wind, it is the only thing that will keep it in the air.
It is also a very fast plane. Not for beginners.
Had a few crashes in a park and plane held up well.
awesome little plane, but I must be doing something wrong...I'm using the Rhino 2S 360mah packs fully charged and the cog is spot on, but tossing it hard at 80pcnt-100pcnt throttle I can't seem to get it "on plane" and it aventually drops. I'm concerned about the elevator servo body, that hangs down quite a ways into the thrust tube and may be causing turbulence. At full throttle it feels like a 900 watt blow dryer, so it seems like it should fly easier...I must be overlooking something; I've tweaked all control surfaces both ways and can't seem to get the perfect "sweet spot"
Anyway, 10 stars for looks, price, and overall value...I'm looking forward to figuring it out.
