The Hobbyking™ SkyRay Flying Wing FPV Model has been designed from the outset to be a great FPV platform with a large center bay, simple layout and good flight characteristics at the same time as being a manageable size for easy transport.
Predictable behaviour and good lift characteristics are the key to any model and the 1213mm swept reflex wing provides for this while allowing the SkyRay to be agile enough to make a great looking sport model too.
The recommended 2212 2200kv brushless outrunner motor provides plenty of power for high speed and aerobatic flight, but is perfectly happy pushing the model along at low revs for endurance during long-range FPV flights. Designed to use a 3 cell 2200~4200 LiPoly battery the SkyRay was a wide wing loading range for maximum flexibility.
Optional streamlined or clear, acrylic dome FPV nose cones add further flexibility to the models performance, providing a choice between a top mounted camera (such as the Mobius or HD Wingcam) or an internally mounted action camera (Turnigy Action Cam or GoPro type.)
For more serious FPV work, the large internal space has room to fit a GPS autopilot system, transforming the SkyRay into a self-contained platform for all manner of missions!

Assembled easily with no issues. Took one look at the decal sheet and decided not to bother! I just used the black strips under the wings.It would have been nice to include some horns and pushrods for the optional rudders. I used an NTM 28-30S 900kv motor.I really like this wing. Works great for proximity FPV. I fly with a Turnigy NTM 28-36 2200 kv motor on 3s with 7x4 prop and it is very fast. No stabilization, doesn't need it. Using one of the newer Orange RX 620 V2 receivers and have ~1.5 km range. Some have had uncontrollable spin issues but with CG a few cm ahead of recommended, it has not been an issue. Not a fan of the dome but like the shark nose with FPV cam on top. It is not a tough wing (compared to say an X-5) so more damage in crashes but does fly a bit less twitchy. Recommended for more experienced users.
