Sbach 342 – 122″ (3.10m)

The model that really put Pilot-RC on the map.  Every manufacturer produced an Sbach 342 but only one was ever talked about, only one got it just right.

The Pilot-RC Sbach 342 is one of those models that can be smooth, precise and ever so forgiving as it can be agile and manoeuvrable.  Anyone who tries one wants one, and anyone who has one wants to just fly and fly.  The best way to describe it is as a plane that you simply feel confortable with, from the beginning.
