Does size matter?

Well, we don't know either, but the HobbyKing™ Skipper just got bigger!

Just like its smaller sibling, the Skipper XL is capable of operating from almost any surface including water, ice, snow, grass and more, making it an incredibly versatile model. With its super low wing loading and high performance brushless power system the Skipper XL is an absolute blast to fly!

The installed power system (PNF version) provides more than enough power for water or grass take-offs and provides unlimited vertical performance. Large control surfaces give great control authority and make for a wide flight envelope.

Molded from ultra-tough EPO foam, the model is lightweight and durable. The wing halves are joined through the fuselage with twin carbon fiber spars providing excellent rigidity. The fuselage of the Skipper has a flat bottom for easy take offs from any surface and features a hydrodynamic step to allow for easy water handling.

A large, removable cockpit cover gives fantastic access to the forward compartment for batteries etc and has a transparent canopy for a semi-scale appearance. This cockpit cover can be replaced by an alternative, custom designed plywood FPV equipment platform (see related items) to quickly transform your Skipper XL into an all-terrain FPV vehicle.

Access hatches are also provided mid-fuselage and in the motor nacelle for easy installation and maintenance.

The Skipper XL is available in "Plug and Fly" and kit form allowing you get into the air as quickly as possible, or to cutomize your set-up to your own requirements.

• Ultra durable EPO foam construction
• Plug and Fly - simply add your own radio system and 3~4S LiPoly battery

Had the kit half assembled when I ran into a problem.
The rear spar tube molded into the left wing was located
1/2 inch more forward than the right wing. Front spar
tubes were okay on both wings.
Also the left wing spar tube was at or above the wing top
surface on the left wing.
This misalignment did not allow the left wing to mate to
the fuselage.
Chatted with a HobbyKing rep and was told to return the kit
to the US East coast warehouse, even though I had purchased
it from the West coast warehouse. They only do the evaluations
on the east coast. Shipping cost would be $62. Forget that.
I will try to cut the spar tube out of the wing and reposition
it in the proper location. It will definitely be detrimental
to the planes appearance.

Ich hatte schon viel Spa mit dem kleinen Skipper, somit war klar, da ich mir den Skipper XL zulegen mute - als Kit . Ausgerstet mit Corona DS939 MG , 3542er Brushless mit 1450KV, 3300er 4S Nanotech-Lipo und 8x8 APC-Luftschraube geht der Skipper XL mit Speed endlos Senkrecht. ( nicht nur Vollgas fliegen ! mit dem Setup - bei 60Amp. fr gute Khlung sorgen ! )
Jetzt warte ich auch Skipper XXL ) :-)

I maidened my Skipper XL today.

First take off try was a little rough, because despite having the lipo all the way back to the little wooden hook, it is still noseheavy. I do not know, how I will be able to get the CoG right with FPV gear installed.
After trimming the elevator up, the second try went well and once up in the air it flies really great. Ailerons are a little bit sensitive, as you would expect with a delta wing.

Stalls are no problem, the Skipper just falls like a parachute and it is always possible to power out of it.

Because of the stall and slow flying characteristics, the Skipper is easy to land.

I installed two aileron servos, because I had no double servoarm for the servos I had lying around. I just cut the servo slot big enough to fit two servos side by side.

My setup:

D-Power AL35-12 1270kv motor
40A ESC
8x4.5 Aeronaut light prop
Zippy compact 4s 4000mAh 25C lipo
4 Metalgear servos 10g
