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.

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

A 6 x 4 or 6 x 5 should do nicely

7x5E but puts stress on the motor a bit

Hi, I bought the Skipper plane. After 2 flights, I crashed into the water and the port aileron broke off. How do I repair it or do I have to buy a new port wing? If I have to buy a new wing, Where do I buy it? Thank you. Bob

Beware Australian Buyers of on Screen discount vouchers on this site. Hobby King may flash a discount to purchase this item for a lower price on the right side of the screen. The offer makes you think you are getting a discount. However they claim the price offered is in USA dollars (not Indicated) and the buyer assumes this price discount is in AU dollars. That seems logical being that you are on the Australian Website with Australian Pricing... When you go ahead with the transaction you won't see a discount at all as the Currency conversion will negate the discount.. So in Short its a SCAM to make you think you are getting a special price when in fact YOU ARE NOT!. Very Deceptive and sneaky and I have reported this to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission as a concern. I have Provided Howard on the support desk a screen shot of the discount offer showing that it does not show the discount in USA Dollars, but he refuses to make the adjustment and apply the discount promised... Please be aware of this should you get this offer, as you will NOT get any discount off the listed Australian Price. I have given Hobby King the opportunity to address this problem and apply the discount, but they have chosen to send silly E-Mails that make no sense at all. I have had no choice but to report them and advise others not to fall into this trap... Real shame as I have had good purchase results from them in the past.. Very Concerning

Any kind souls would teach me how to waterproof electronics using plastic dips? Corrosion X is not available here in Malaysia. Thanks in advance.
 Vette350 91 points
tape the top gear and control arm and spray about 4 layers of plasti dip until the screw holes are completely covered. In the crease where the pushrod comes out of put down some grease to prevent water from going in there.

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.
