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.

First flights ok , took it out today and got it in a tree, broke prop, what size do I need to replace it, and also took a chunk out of the front edge shoulder of the right wing. I could not find the chunk out of the wing, so I will have to try and rebuild the wing with a sheet of epo foam,. I would have bought an other set of wings, but they are not stocked as spare parts.

2200mah works on this plane. But it it is not recomended. It gets more nose heavy and can tend to wing stall if you go slowly into corners. 1500mah is my best choice for this plane :) Also 1300mah 4s is a winner.

Yes, I use stock motor and ESC. Recommend to visit the Skipper thread on rcgroups. There is a lot of information.

will this take a 3s 2200 lipo?
 craigfoot 31 points
Yes it will. I saw a video on a forum of a guy flying the Skipper with 2000mah 3s. He said it flew great, better in higher wings than the recommended 1300mah.

I fly this plane and have over 250 flights on it with a 1000 to 13000 ma batt. CG is right where it is marked. Great fun plane I will order another and repaid it air force silver with roundals Super off snow grass water. I cut down an APC 8X4 then balanced it and it flies much better

i love my skippy. probably my favorite plane atm. I fly mine almost everyday but now since it gets dark early i only get week ends. I am in the process of putting a 10g 25mW fpv set up. when you paint make sure you put on light cotes but a lot of them. I put down 5 coats and after about 50 flights i have stress cracks all over my wings, they flutter pretty good.

Agree it is an amazing plane to fly and have fun with one thing you can do and it is amazing for later in the day/night is add lights. HK sells water proof lights in several colours . I have put them on home made F22 and pylon race at night time. Often people have driven into the field an night and said they thought it was a UFO. Very funny when you show them it is nothing but a 4 $ board from Wal Mart cut into a profile of a F22. If new to night flying, start off just before it gets dark and fly your plane till it is dark. Thanks for the paint tip, I won't put on as many coats maybe just 2 at the most. Then war bird decals like Roundels and country flag etc

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.
