The HobbyKing® ™ Walrus is a very capable, fun model that appeals to both new and experienced pilots alike, easy to fly and easy to build, the Walrus is great value for money!
Made from tough EPO foam, the Walrus is simple to assemble, the colourful decals are pre-applied and the brushless outrunner motor, ESC and all servo's are pre-installed, even the folding prop and spinner have been factory fitted! As well as being easy to assemble, the Walrus is very practical and features a stiff, CF reinforced 2pc Plug-in-wing and a large canopy area that allows you to fit a wide range of lipoly packs, it's somewhat portly proportions also make the Walrus super easy to hand-launch. The great looking scheme is perfect for orientation and it's appealing size gives the Walrus plenty of presence, as well as the ability to handle a little wind.
There is no doubting the versatility of this superbly priced glider, it is perfect for some gentle grab n fly gliding but the Walrus is also surprisingly capable as a Sport flyer, making it perfect for new pilots to progress with as they get more confident. The speed of the Walrus at WOT is quite surprising and with flaps fitted as standard, it is also capable of amazingly slow flight, this combination gives the Walrus an impressive flight envelope for a "reasonably priced" foamy glider! There can be no doubt, regardless of your flying experience.....you can't go wrong with a Walrus!

I've bought this plane months ago and I've been quite surprised about the quality of the plane the EPO is very strong and it well forgives bad landings. I'm not a very experienced pilot but I found this plane really easy to control. my setup is all stock and I use a 3s 2200mah battery, the esc ventilation i's not the best so I've cutted a "shark" vent underneath the motor and now all it's corŕectly cooled. After sime really bad landings caused by gusty winds, I've just ordered another one because I really like it.Love it. Easy to launch and fly. Will float or do aerobatics such as inverted etc. It will clime quickly on a 3s 2200mah battery. If I prang it I'll buy anotherHad an amazing time maidening this glider! Must have for new people getting into the hobby!This is a great powered glider for the price, all goes together very well, me and 2 friends got one each, we put them together at our flying field, but one thing i much say to anyone buying one and also to HK is, The four screws that hold the motor in are not done tight enough, "Please check them" and add some tread lock too, one of my friends almost lost his on the first flight today due to the motor coming lose, I managed to land it for him and we found 2 of the motor screws had come out completely & the motor was lose, The 2 screws were found in the rear of the fuselage (( see my photo in the files section )). If the Walrus had crashed due to this would Hobbyking have said sorry or offered a refund, I don't think so !.Das Modell hat mich wirklich überrascht. In ca 2h waren die Leitwerke geklebt und die Ruderanlenkungen für Querruder und Flaps montiert. Der Motor ist etwas laut, zieht mit 3Zellen erstaunlich gut durch. Der Regler wird dabei recht warm, scheint jedoch zu halten. Mit Flaps ist der Flieger recht langsam zu bewegen gerade beim Landen sehr angenehm , ohne Klappen geht Walrus echt flott. Das Modell hat mir schon viele Stunden Freude bereitet und auch schon üble Landungen hingenommen. Ein Punkt Abzug für die schlechte Verpackung. Das Modell war mit gebrochener Leitwerksaufhame und defektem Servo für das Höhenruder angekommen. Ansonsten Daumen hoch für Walrus! ( Kleber nicht vergessen!)
First flight and the motor came away from nose... and crashed. I received 2 different wings too. And for HK it's my bad.
So buy at your own risk, for myself, i won't in the future.A very well made powered glider, handles the high winds no problem, and on a calm day it rules the skys, i am getting 10 mins flight times from a 3cell 2200mah lipo, went together very well, very nice/strong too. Plenty of power for a great days flying. 10 out of 10.very nice glider. I could easily mount my 3000 mAh 3s and still have a nice CG. only thing that would have been nice to have in the set is the glue otherwise brilliant setGot about 20 flights on it, and really enjoy it. Decent power and glide. Mildly aerobatic. The full house setup (including flaps) makes this a very good value and a lot of fun when mixes are used. With crow/speed brakes, I can land within a few feet of my target. Very versatile plane for many occassions. Quality is acceptable at this price, and if you examine all critical features closely to ensure proper assembly and hardware function, it will probably serve you well. Considering the potential quality concerns out of the box, I might not recommend it to a beginner, unless they have an experienced pilot to review it before flight. But for anyone else, I highly recommend it!Eleron and elevatore strings in the body are switched so i have to find a way to fix this (no space, no internal view).
except that it's ok
