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.

amazing fun plane I use off every surface. I am going to use my original I run on a 1000 to 1300 ma batt it will be spot on the batt line on the wooden batt tray with that size batt. Going to paint a new one in military grey and decal it up just for fun. Just leave a tick of power on when flying this plane for a perfect landing on every surface.

What is the stock motor KV rating and how many Amps is the ESC. Just curious, thinking of ordering it and like some of the other model I have purchase from HK I will change them out and add a better quaility motor and ESC to the plane.

Thanks for the info
 Vette350 78 points
Practice on the factory setup until you get good or the factory motor burns out. If the skipper is still alive by then you should upgrade. The motor is 2200kv and the esc is 40 amp

Once again HK is blocking bad reviews.

Mine came way under powered. After two flights of barely getting off the water now it won't even come close to taking off on water...
 Vette350 78 points
try 4s 1000mah right on the battery line. If the cg is not right she struggles to take of from water on 3s. check out my vids i put a ntm 2200 on and she had no probs coming of the water.

singpost and airmail sucks. i have a scratch build waiting for servos. i like fedex but sometime the stupid shipping guidelines ahhh. once you go 4s 1000mah you never some back...
 Vette350 78 points
also install a 7x5E or 6x4 apc prop the factory one is weak and flexes.

Us Fed Ex next time as a shipping option, the batts arrive 3 to 4 days. What MA size of 4s batts you going to try?
 Capt. Morgan 234 points
1000mah 4s is what I am going to try. Hopefully motor and esc tale it!!
 Capt. Morgan 234 points
I order all my lipos from international warehouse. Getting lipos across the border to Canada incurs brokerage fees taxes etc. that cost a fortune. Coming from China is slower but a lot cheaper.
 Electric Power 628 points
Good luck with the motor and ESC. The ESC gets warm on a 3s batt so watch the throt. Also change the prop since stock won't like the extra voltage Shipping I do the same international to Canada if I am not worried about when it arrives. The shipping in most cases with extra Fed Ex charge is 20$ more than the international. and if you make a big order of batts it is the only option to Canada

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.
