The Spacewalker manages to capture all the spirit of Aviation's Golden Age of the 1930's, Making it a perfect model to introduce you to the scale modelling world.
In actual fact, the original Spacewalker was designed by Jesse Anglin of Hendersonville, North Carolina in the mid 1980's. Despite the fact it's a relatively new design, the Spacewalker still manages to capture all the spirit of Aviation's 'Golden Age' - the 1930's.
This is an icon of American civil aircraft. Particularly appreciated by amateur aircraft makers, the space walker is an aircraft with delicious old-fashion design, inspired from what was produced in the 30's, the absence of a canopy being a characteristic of this period.
Designed from the start to handle any kind of sport aerobatics, it has proven to be one of the most enjoyable models to fly - Especially authentic in the air when fitted with a .61 four stroke. The big wing area, thick airfoil, and long tail moment make for predictable, stable approaches and soft, slow landings.
The build quality of this model is very good, the workmanship is very nice indeed! The vivid color scheme is highly visible and very well finished.
A great handling model for those lazy Sundays at the field.

Nice plane overall. Instructions are ok, but not great. A couple of things you simply had to know what to do from experience. Covering looks good. I'm surprised the servos were not placed within the wings. One-piece wing - it is well-built. Flies very stable. Set it up exactly as the manual says as far as control surface movement and CG goes. Not crazy about the landing gear, as it seems weak. Battery tray needs to be secured. I don't like the wheel pants and ended up cutting one off after the first flight because they simply get in the way. Definitely recommend it.This is a very nice model for the price and fly very nice. Check carefully the hinges, I had two problems, the first one the rudder came off during the take off , this time no damage. The second one after 5 flies, during the take off one of the elevators came off because the same problem this time I lost the plane completely. If you can re-glue the hinges is better to do it.This model is NOT 1580mm (62 inch) it's only 60 inch although the box says 58 inch. Confusing & HK should sort it outi received the plane, really very nice quality and inside are all componets which you need i also bought the ngh gt9 , 9cc gas engine, i almost setup the plane. Nice pack and quick shipping!!Great plane!!!
Quick and no damage at the delivery.
And this plane is cheap for the scale and quality you get, love it!!!!maiden 5 times dis morning...superbly taking off and n landing without any problem..dis are my set up..ntm motor 4248//650kv..prop turnigy light wood 13x8..corona high torque mg ds//standard 22gramx4pcs..motor adaptor 42xx buy seperately...battery recomended 3000mah//5cell//20c or 3oc..tried 4 cell not much of a punch.,,lastly cg 3.5 inch from the leading edge of the wing...I flown dis baby without any trim at all..IT was great flying dis plane n you regretted I assurred you..enjoy n have a nice day sayonara bro'''''''''''''''''Very good model which is actually a VQ. I have mine as an electric with a SK3 5045 660kV motor powered by a 3300mAh 5S NanoTec pack turning a MAS 12x8 prop. With the above, mine flies brilliantly - very stable when I want to cruise yet still quite aerobatic when I want to throw it around. The colour scheme looks great in the air and on the ground. After the maiden flight, I had numerous guys from the club come and tell me how great the Spacewalker looked. I thoroughly recommend this one.Good quality kit. Had VQ kits before and no problems. Assembled easily with no problems. Comes with lots of bits and pieces. Even contained bolts for fixing an electric motor which I used. Plenty of space for lipo pack and good access. No problem assembling undercarriage. Had first test flight which showed no vices.I have built over 30 planes within the last two years, and I believe this one is a great buy for $84. The best thing about this model, is that you don't have to make any modifications to beef up the motor mount or the tail section, such as the horizontal stab.
The only negative thing is the complicated landing gear. Although it holds up after a rough landing, I think a one piece gear would have been more practical and easier to assemble.
The servo tray for the rudder and elevator needs modification to accommodate any servo you choose, because the opening is just too large, unless you plan to use a 42g servo.
I placed a G32 770Kv motor with 80A ESC with 14x7 prop. There is 6.57lbs of torque and 55A of max current. The flying weight is around 5.25lbs. With this set up, it is not a very fast plane, however it is a good flier. The quality of the covering is good, not wrinkles. The hardware is cheap, you might want to substitute metal clevises for the plastic ones. The nose cone that comes with the plane has no center hole, therefore be sure to drill your opening for the shaft carefully, otherwise you will experience a great deal of vibration in the motor.
I will recommend this plane with 4 stars, because of the landing gear.Angabe der Spannweite ist nicht richtig. Wingtips sind aus Plastik, nicht aus GFK. Ansonsten: Die Verarbeitung ist gut, VQ model eben. Nicht die leichteste Bauweise, aber robust. Profil lsst Gutmtigkeit erahnen. Weitere Indos nache dem Erstflug. LG
