HobbyKing® ™ Skipper All Terrain Airplane EPO 700mm (PNF)

HobbyKing® ™ Skipper All Terrain Airplane EPO 700mm (PNF)

Quite possibly the most fun plane ever...the HobbyKing® ™ Skipper!

Capable of taking off from and landing on just about any surface including water, ice, snow, grass and more, the Skipper is a truly versatile model. Add to that its super low wing loading and high performance brushless power system and you've got yourself a model that is an absolute blast to fly!

The pre-installed 40A brushless power system provides tons of power, just what you need for getting off of the water or grass take-offs. This abundance of power adds to the fun factor in the air, providing unlimited vertical performance. The large control surfaces allow for a fast roll rate and excellent elevator response making aerobatic flight a big part of the Skipper's wide flight envelope.  

Constructed from low-density EPO foam, this model is very lightweight yet maintains a high level of durability. The wing halves are joined with twin carbon fiber spars providing excellent rigidity. The fuselage of the Skipper is moulded in a "flying boat" shape allowing it to easily take off, land and cruise on the water. This smooth, low-drag design also lends itself very well to use on snow and grass.

The Skipper comes in "Plug and Fly" form meaning that the brushless power system and all servos are pre-installed, you will simply need to add your own 4CH radio system and 3S lipoly battery. Assembly is a breeze requiring gluing of the horizontal stabilizer only. You can have the Skipper built and ready for flight in as little as 15 minutes.

Price difference has been longer than just a day ... still think EU price is day over real value.

Yes, they have this "Cyber Monday Sale" (or just "Cyber Sale") for more than 1 day - according to the news topic on rcgroups****, it has been running since November 18th.

Came today in perfect condition, took me 15 min to put it together, only easy gluing needed. Flies great of grass, gonna try it out in water tomorrow. Do think that the motor could be a little stronger, no chance going unlimited vertical. Will surely try changing the motor in the future. But good for now. Hope H.K do make it as a Kit as well and maybe make a spare-part list for it.

I fly the polaris all the time and the skipper is the best of the lot. Arrived in less than a week in great shape. Only using a 1300 mAh lipo and plenty of power. Several club members are going to order one.

Received mine last week and emptied 10 batteries during the weekend. Both on grass and water and I must say I'm very satisfied with this plane. Flight time, for me, when using 1300mAh was around 7-8 minutes and it is definitely no problem to use larger batteries.

Hi Guys, mine will be delivered on Tues. 22nd Oct after paying £38.00 import duty on top of the £29.00 postage. So this plane is not as cheap as I thought it was!!! in fact I could have bought the original model plane a lot cheaper and quicker. The duty and postage is nothing to do with HK I know, but I will give serious thought in future before buying abroad. It's a pity it's not on sale in the UK depot yet. I will give a review after delivery on Tues.
