The HobbyKing™ Mini SkyHunter is a well thought out, high quality FPV platform well suited to the everyday flyer and serious enthusiasts alike. A perfect size to transport on the back seat of the car, the Mini SkyHunter doesn't fall short of FPV capability despite its small size with exceptional aerial videography and FPV capabilities.
With its EPO and carbon fibre structure, distinctive twin-boom design, large payload bay, shoulder wing and wing mounted equipment pockets, the Mini SkyHunter is set to impress. Simple construction means that building time is kept to a minimum and that the model can also be broken down again quickly at the end of your flying session if needed for storage.
The practicality of the SkyHunter isn't just skin deep either; moulded handgrips for easy launching and a selection of camera/equipment mounting locations and plywood mounts make the Mini SkyHunter one of the best platforms in its class.
The wing mounted equipment pockets allow sensitive AV transmitters to be mounted well away from the R/C and power systems to eliminate the risk of interference.

Bit of a mixed bag this one, the PNF that I got must have been a Friday afternoon rush job. I got mine together without much hassle although the booms needed sanding down to seat them properly into the holders but on my first landing, note landing, not crash, as the model slid across the grass coming to a stop, both boom holders fell off the wing, one aileron servo fell out and the elevator servo also just dropped out. On checking and repairing the model, there is basically no glue, just tiny dabs here and there. The two halves of the fuselage have also separated, causing a total strip down and re-glue. Mine weighs 1150 grams with a 4000 3s, EagleTree vector and a 600mw VTX installed, this is too much, the model tip stalls virtually without provocation, moving the c/g so far forward I've almost run out of elevator authority has had little impact. This is the first disappointment I've had from Hobbyking in many purchases, the model doesn't fly very well and was VERY poorly assembled.
