This is the X-5 flying wing from Skywalker Technology. The X-5 has been specifically designed for FPV and UAV, customised for F-Tek stabiliser systems.

An awkward looking but fantastic flying FPV / UAV platform, moulded out of EPO so it's nearly indestructible!

This model offers a large amount of under canopy space, excellent glider performance, fast low power cruise speeds in the region of 60-70 kph.
The airframe was designed from the outset to take FPV and other video devices, the equipment bays have been laid out to suit FPV / UAV applications, there is a camera mount in the nose and the canopy is a bolt down affair. Transporting the airframe is easy, it's compact enough to be put in any car's trunk!

Nice design points are the moulded in wing reflex, outward canted vertical stabilisers, ventral finger grip, nose camera bay, screwed down canopy, moulded battery and FPV trays, exposed to the airflow- external ESC bay and moulded in cable runs.
Don't be fooled by its size, the payload capability is beyond your imagination. There are reports of hefty payloads in excess of 2200 grams being carried without issue!

Smooth flyer

Jun 29, 2018

NO instructions but as an experienced builder no problem. A novice could be frustrated.. In order to stiffen & protect I started with\ bottom , sprayed with spray glue. Allowed to dry for at least 1/2 hr. Then covered with 2" wide fiberglass tape. Covered everything including evalons & hinges. Did the top the same way, I'm flying at high altitude ( 7630', 2326M ) . Using a 1200kv motor 8/6 prop 3000ma 20 C 3 cell Turnigy lipo. Launches straight out & up. This wing is a floater with motor off, super stable. Typical flight times 20+ min. between motor & floating.

First, to build it is not for beginners, due to lack of notice.

Delivered in a big strong box and perfectly protected, with the model and a few stuff (horns, servo wires, velcro, wood pieces........AND NO GLUE AND NO MANUAL or notice at all) .

You will need : a cutter with sharp large blade, EPP glue, to glue wood to epp, and EPP to EPP glue, and something to enlarge the place where you'll scratch your batterie (Dremmel, iron solder etc...), otherwise , if you do not pull back a simple 3S 3300 battery pack you wont get the correct C.O.Gravity.

Use velcro peel'n scratch too to glue your ESC , which is outside at the under-back side next to motor.

HXT900 servos fit perfectly, glue them with a very very small quantity of glue.
you will need the screws to fix motor in the wood part (i use the 4 screws from my 2 HXT900 servos because the ones given are too big to me).

BEFORE cutting the 2 elevons at right and left, glue in place the servo a its neutral position, an connect it to the elevon to get a correct neutral position for elevons.

Two (ovoide shape) wood parts are to be glued to winglets, so winglets do not hit the groud, the wood will, and they are also used as winglets.
I changed the control horns to have screwed ones, not glued to the elevons (try to glue plastic to EPP... !).
to paint it, use spray for EPP, otherwise not good, paint goes away.

A nice airframe but very unhappy that my X-5 did not come with the appropriate mounting hardware for the winglets and battery hatch. I will be cutting them myself from plywood on a scroll saw. Instead, I received two strange airfoil-shaped plates about 7" long, completely useless. Also, no instructions besides the useless document found here, under "files". First purchase of a plane from Hobbyking and most likely my last...

Fun little wing for FPV. Flies well with CG a bit forward of the nipples. Did not use motor angle correction. Using Turnigy 2836-1040 motor, 9 x 4.5 APC prop, HK 40 amp ESC, 4S-5000 25C battery. Laminate wing to increase stiffness. Max throttle amp/current draw is right on the edge with 9 x 4.5 prop. 8 x 6 prop might be more efficient but the 9 x 4.5 gives real easy hand launches. Have Feiyu Tech Lite OSD/stabilization with Arkbird 433 receiver. Video is Immersion 250 mw 5.8 GHz. Easy 3.5 km range with Immersion Circular Polarized SpiroNet Antenna's. Tough, fun little aircraft. Not good for a first wing though, make it your second or third...

Excellent Kit! Everything fits like it should!

One Minus Point for the hatch! It needs to be screwed in every Batterypack. I will try to use Some magnets instead!

Es un ala que vuela bastante bien, lo he volado en FPV cargado con cmara tx de video y batera para el sistema FPV y el vuelo es placentero, sin motor el planeo es bueno pero cae rpido, la pega que le pongo es el lanzamiento que no tiene donde agarrarlo para lanzarlo y es complicado llevndose un par de golpes al lanzarlo

Well thought out and sturdy airframe. Be forewarned there are no directions whatsoever, most of it is pretty self explanatory though.

So, kurzes Rewiew zum X5 nach ca 3-4 Testflgen!
Qualitt ist soweit top, nur die Befestigung der Winglets muss ein wenig angepasst werden, was aber kein Problem darstellt.
Mein Setup: NTM Prop Drive Series 28-26A 1200kv / 286w | TURNIGY Plush 30amp Speed Controlle | 9x6 Schraube | 10g Metalservos (eigentlich Wurst, welche man nimmt) | 2x 3S 2200 mAh fr eine Flugdauer von ca 20-25 min. Jedoch denke ich, dass da noch mehr drin ist, wenn man auf min-gas fliegt.
Das alles ist noch ohne FPV-Setup, welches noch nachgerstet wird.
WICHTIG: Schwerpunkt liegt genau 26 cm von der Nasenspitze aus, auf den beiden "Nippeln". Und der Motorsturz sollte mit den beigelegten Holz-Unterlegscheiben eingestellt werden. Diese gehren auf die obereren Schrauben.
Beim Starten mindesten 3/4 Gas und nach dem Anwerfen leicht hhe geben!
Fliegt dann wirklich 1A.
