I know some of you saw the SBach at one of the Palmerton GtGs. Well, since I got a second one I figured I'd post some pics of the planes. They are both Ultra-Micros. The Bi-plane is a Beast 3d, that's the new one. The other is an Sbach 342. They are both from E-flite and they are a blast. I wouldn't recommend them for beginners, but I've only been flying for a few months and I do ok with them. There is still an occasional issue but hey, I'm getting better. The Sbach is pretty quick and it has an insane roll rate. The Beast can do 3d, harriers, prop stands and stuff like that. It's not as fast as the Sbach but it is just as fun. Here's a few pics:

Actually if you start with a trainer, it's quite easy. Also, foamie planes are easy to fix, all you need is foam safe CA glue and you can fix it even if it breaks in half. The Parkzone UMX Champ is a good place to start, or even the UMX T-28 Trojan, that has ailerons.

I'd like to see some FP video rickb, or would a smaller camera throw the weight balance off?

I do have a key fob camera. I haven't tried it either pf these planes, but it really messed the CG up on the other [lanes I tried it on. They were both about the same size so I doubt it would work on these. although, I could maybe mount it on the top wing of the beast right at the CG point, not sure though.
