Putting aside the silly name and the fact that it's bounced off a few branches of the ugly tree, the Skywalker is a large, cheap, tough EPO FPV platform kit that allows the builder to choose an equally cheap power train and some suitable value for money RC equipment from your favourite Hobby Emporium.....Hobbyking.
This is to all intents and purposes a kit, so a little building experience will be required, but not much, it's fairly simple. Being an FPV platform, the configuration is the usual high lift wing, pusher prop, boom fuselage and if you fancy dipping a toe into FPV then this kit may be for you, especially with one of our excellent low cost FPV set ups.

This aircraft is great! it glides really well too. it glided for four minutes when one of the plugs on the ESC unsoldered. it is extremely stable and a great airframe. i recommend it too everyonemine flew fine until it hit the ugly tree and got stuck. and broken. in many pieces. and then I cried.
Hobby King please restock! I want to be happy in my fpv world again!
I like that it has lots of space, but there are many mods to make...otimo aviao porem nao vem com trem de pouso.
co-buying hobby king, someone could tell me some gear here at hobbyking I can adapt the skywalker ?...... Thank you all.very nice quality - good for FPV - a lot of room for your FPV geargreat plane the foam is really nice and dence and strong loads of space for a high payload capasity. i had fpv gear a go pro and 5000mah 3 cell in it with all metal gear servos and flaps
maden was windy 15 mph but the plane just lifted of my hand no problem and went down wind and came around for full throtle low pass and came pass and just pulled up and the wing folded and the thing plumeted to the ground go pro first .
i was so mad as it was the first flight but when to inspect it the go pro was still recording and the majority of the plane was fine the battary compartment had split each side but nothing a bit of glue wont fix .
other than that the plane is amazing just some tape on the wing fixed the problem and flyes great getting anouther for sure nice plane well recomendedLa versione la 3! Quindi non il modello nuovo. Su fpv hobby si trova la v5 a meno prezzo. Nella scatola mancano i tubi in carbonio e la coda risulta danneggiata,perch stato imballato da cani! Se torno indietro mai pi comprerei questo modello da hk.
Ragazzi,lasciate perdere e comprate altrove.
(hk don't delete this reviews again,people must know your bad work)I have received mine today, this is version 3! better if u buy from bevrc
In the package missing carbon roads and tail is damaged,bad work hk
(P.S. don't delete again this reviews)I ordered this from the USA store. It arrived quickly and in good condition but it is not the latest and greatest V5. I verified with pictures on BEV RC and mine definately has the old syle wings. For that reason I have marked it down in the value department. I was looking forward to a quick assembly but now I will take the time and reinforce the wing for added support.My first flight with camera:

I'm a newbie to RC planes, so flight quality is not very good :P
Anyhow, this plane is great. 4 cell, 5000mah battery and GoPro camera in the front, it climbs very fast and very high. Looks like the real thing in the air. After mastering this bit more, I might try the FPV long range 168 fiber glass version...
