The force is strong with this one......so is the EPO foam it's made from and the carbon spar in the wing. Being in kit form, this little parkflyer allows you to use your preferred power train and RC equipment, it is a very simple build and the completed model is sure to give hours of parkflying fun....If you are into micro FPV - in a place, far, far away..........
Flying Weight: 250g
Your Own 4 Channel TX/RX
4 x Sub-Micro Servo
18mm 1700kv Motor
12A ESC w/BEC
850mAh 3s Lipoly Battery
I set my 1st one of these up as a 3 chanel, aileron, elevator and throttle. with a cheap Chinese 2200kv motor using a 3 blade drone propeller and a turnigy 2200mAh 3s battery to get it to balance. This plane climbs vertically at a rate that I have to be careful not to rip the wings off, even on a windy day it flys and glides well. I have given it plenty of punishment but with some hot glue & duct tape it keeps flying. I am glad I bought 4, after learning to fly on the 1st one the next will still be tons of fun and last longerFantastic little plane. Easy to build, put the servos in wings, didn't worry about the rudder servo as its not really needed. Using DYS 1806 2300kv motor with 5030 3-blade prop and either 2200, 1200 3s. Flies very well with this setup.Great little EPO airplane... It comes more as a kit than ARF, but the quality of the components and of the hardware is awesome for such a price ! Building is straightforward.
The only little cons is that it could be difficult to obtain the CG as the tail needs some renforcement and the motor mount is a bit too much backward (but not a problem if you use FPV equipment in the front)
In flight, the controls are very responding, and it' s very predictable. Lot of fun !Mini Skywalker is a great little plane easy to build and so much fun to flyMini Skywalker is a great little plane easy to build and so much fun to flyMini Skywalker is a great little plane easy to build and so much fun to flyAwesome little plane. Like another reviewer states it's more like a kit rather than ARF. It took me around 3-4 hours to build. I fly mine as a glider/sailplane and it's a lot of fun. My setup weighs in a 9.5 oz (272 grams) but I can fly with a min of ~8-10 knots of wind on a big cliff.
The decals came with red, yellow and black (instead of the blue in the image). I kind of wanted the super-gay rainbow like the pic but not a big deal.
I'm pleasantly surprised by this little plane. I didn't have any expectations for the plane so I'm quite impressed. For the price you really can't beat it.Great little airplane definitely moves across the sky and flys well!
Took about a week in a half to show up at m y doorstep plane came with minor dents that are easily repairable.
Im not using this as an FPV plat forum just more as a fun flyer.
This was on back order when I ordered it but when it arrived I realised why!
This is a fantastic fast, fun little plane. I used a quad motor 2300kv with a 20amp esc and this plane really flies quick!! I also added FPV with the remzibi osd!
its very stable and very fast! I recommend this excellent little plane.
I have recently bought its big brother too, the Skywalker!!
