This is the X-8 FPV wing from Skywalker Technolog,. The BIG FPV wing!
The X-8 has been specifically designed for FPV and UAV, customised for F-Tek stabiliser systems.
An awesome looking and fantastic flying FPV / UAV platform, moulded out of EPO so it's nearly indestructible!
This model offers a huge amount of under canopy space, excellent glide performance, fast low power cruise speeds in the region of 80-90 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 there's a forward oblique mount to suit a Gopro. Transporting the airframe is easy, both the wing panels and the vertical stabs are bolt on affairs.
Nice design points are the moulded in wing reflex, removable vertical stabilisers, ventral launching grips, nose camera bay, canopy retained via strong magnets , moulded battery and FPV trays and 2 through fuselage spars - plus a moulded in spar in each wing panel.
It's an impressive airframe that spans 2120mm and has a rather imposing silhouette!

didnt know what to expect when it arrived with in couple of hours it was ready to fly . i personaly coverd mine made the wings alot stronger over all it is a beast of a plane well worth the mony thats why i bought a second one went to buy third they out of stock so waiting for them to be in stock to build one as night flyer
Hi. Mine come to my home yesterday. I has the great surprise that it comes with the plastic orange attachments that lets you remove the wings, not the balsa wood shown on the images. It's the secont time I get more than expected. Firs was with the Fx-61 wich was the newer version with detachable wings.

Der Bausatz hatte einige Druckstellen, lohnte sich aber nicht die Ware wieder zurck zu schicken. Bau ging gut voran aber wegen der fehlenden Bauanleitung nur etwas fr erfahrene Modellbauer. Als Antrieb verwendete ich einen Turnigy 5055/320 an 6S/6000mAh mit 14x9 Klappropeller. Der Start erfolgt von einer Rampe. Flugzeiten von ca. 30min sind mglich.
Schnelle lieferung, keine Beanstandung.
Jederzeit gerne wieder
Looks cool and carries and lot. Quality is bad and foam is bent and needs to be heated and bent back. Also it stalls really easy if you try turning sharp.
What can I say...
Poor fit and finish. Huge gaps between parts that are supposed to fit together. Not enough glue supplied in the kit. Had to replace the floppy ailerons with more rigid ones. Not worth the money to be honest
This is a beautiful flying aircraft & with the proper power plant can fly for an hour on a single 5000mah 6s! The 2 concerns are launching by hand is a "NoNo" & you must keep the nose down & speed at a minimum 20 knots or the chances of entering into an uncontrolled flat spin are really really good, be careful but you will have the fun of your life with this platform I promise
Ohne Anleitung, teile passen nicht genau, Mails abgewimmelt mit der Begrndung "Virus Scan 2 Wochen dauert LOL".
