Description

The Walrus is an exceptionally stable flyer and great fun to fly, but as brilliant as the Walrus is, the fun was over when the sun set for the day.  Well, not anymore because you will be lighting up the sky with the NightWalrus. 

 

Easy to assemble like the original, amazing to fly, with the pre-installed LED system running throughout the model a new element has been added to this classic.

 

But it's not only the LEDs that are new, the airframe itself has been strengthened and the components upgraded.  The fuselage now sports a reinforced plastic belly pan strengthening the fuselage and giving extra model protection for those not so perfect landings.  The motor and ESC have been updated and additional cooling has been added to the design.

 

The pre-installed LED system is powered by simply connecting the LED power lead to an additional connection from the ESC giving you a full 12 volts supply from the lipo/ESC giving you the brightest LEDs around.  

 

The Night Walrus is a great model for day or night and it's sure to become that 'go to' model that everyone just loves to fly.

 

Features:
• Plug and Fly - Just add your own battery & radio and fly!
• Super Tough EPO Foam Construction
• Easy and Fast to Assemble
• Flaps Fitted 
• Wide Flight Envelope
• 2pc Plug-In Wing for Easy Transport
• Super bright LED for night flying orientation
• Stiff Wing with CF Joiner

I've really enjoyed the Night Walrus although I haven't managed to get out at night yet due to the cold temperatures. The assembly was easy and straightforward. The only complaint I have is the aileron and flap servo arms were not indexed correctly on the servos so I had to make a little channel in the foam to get a screw driver in to remove and reinsert the screws after reindexing the servo arms. Afterwards I put on some mylar to clean up the aerodynamics where I made the channel. A really minor issue. I added an X8R receiver and accompanying high precision variometer which really enhances this combination. Even in the poor thermals of winter in the Northeast US I've managed to keep the airplane aloft for a solid 40 minutes on one battery. Given the price point I'm very impressed with the power system and the LEDs show up well even in the daylight. The flight characteristics are very benign even when stalling out of a tight turn to stay in a thermal. There is no tendency to spin at all and the response of the airplane is very smooth and controlled. I haven't yet been able to induce a proper spin at the c.g specified in the instructions. I tend to end up with just a tight spiral. Given the benign handling I felt confident passing the controller over to my 9 and 11 year olds. I wish there was a bit more roll authority, but that's a minor nit. Overall I commend Hobby King for a good product at a outstanding price. It's not going to out glide my composite gliders, but it's also a tenth of the price.

Plane was easy to assemble, glue needed for tail only. As only drawback, space for receiver and battery could be a bit bigger. Now there is no proper place for receiver, it needs to be pushed back into the frame with all servo and LED wiring. Separate hatch under the frame would be nice adition. Plane looks nice and flies very stable and well. It also glides very well due to big wings and aerodynamic frame.

Due to previous crash due to a badly elevator glued servo (see my previous review), I bought a second one, on which plugs for elevator and rudder lights and wires coming fm fuselage are all femal which make connection impossible. For the first crash, as the model was in so many pièces (but all servos except elevator one was in place into the small remainig part of fuselage I could not take any photos which will prove my analysis. Custumers u must be advised dealing w/HK means u accept by 15 pcnt of dirt

Well, what should I say? I never before had such a mess in the battery compartment of any other model plane but the Walrus is such a fun to fly! I had to rework the wing mount which did not fit AT ALL and also had to improve the tail in order to allow smooth operation of the elevator pushrod. I found the CG to be in fact only 72 mm from the leading edge or this bird is really nose-heavy.
But all this is quickly forgotten once you have it airborne. It behaves very well in the air, is rather docile although it will spin if you stall it really bad. It performs all aerobatics imaginable for such a plane (it will not go vertical, though) and even performs knife´s edge. The very bright LED lights are a joy to watch in flights close to dusk or dawn. Very well done, Hobbyking!

This plane was a blast. The plane was packed well, with each part in its own plastic protective bag. It took about an hour to assembly all the tiny control arm screws, all the wire wrangling, and the Rx/Tx setup, just what I expect from a PNP model.
The maiden was in the early morning hours before sunrise and it performed brilliantly with manuals throw recommendations. A fog rolled in and it continued to stay dark as the sun rose, the LEDs really made it a joy to fly in those dimly lit conditions that otherwise you would only see a silhouette of your plane. The plane has a great flight envelope of high speed dives and slow speed with flaps. Be careful on landings as the Walrus wants to glide and glide and needs plenty of room if you are not using flaps. The plastic belly protection works great and easily slides on grass. The only negative I found (and it is very minor) is landing on recently cut grass that is damp makes the grass clippings get stuck inside the fuse from the vent holes on the bottom. It fits inside my compact car with out removing the wings with just a little creative twisting through the door. Thumbs up on this one HK!

Great flyer with plenty of power! The LED's look awesome, even in overcast daylight conditions very good to see. Very bright. Only minor point on assembly was that the forward bolt to secure the wing was too short because the forward recessed thread in the fuselage is a bit lower that the aft one. This is trivial once you got the Night Walrus up in the air with a BIG smile on your face! Bought an light switch in order to switch the lights on and off via spare channel.
