My Tech One Tempo is still alive and flying…barely. The Tempo feels twice as heavy now with all the repairs I’ve had to do with glue. I was in the market for another Tech One small size 3d plane (900mm) and picked the Sbach from Hobbyking USA since all the parts I would need were available there as well. Hobbyking USA moved to a new warehouse location recently in Oregon which allowed the delivery to reach me here in California in three days from the time of order. Very fast shipping.

Maiden flight was done in the evening during very windy conditions. I went ahead with the flight anyhow and thankfully didn’t damage anything or even break a prop. There wasn’t a lot time where I could discover how well the plane performs in various maneuvers compared to all the Tech One planes I have owned and flew. Even in the nasty conditions the Tech One Sbach flew very well and was a lot of fun but had my thumbs busy avoiding a crash. It has a very fast roll rate which I love and can’t wait to fly it in CALM conditions.
