This Skywalker PNP is a great slick plane. The quality overall has been perfection although there are some slight things with this product I will state here.
The battery compartment door on my Skywalker was not as shown in the image, instead it seems that there was some quick decision in the manufacturing. The plastic cover and opening for the battery was there but with a foam section in the middle. This was more than an easy fix with a pair of sissors.
each wing has two separate flaps. but they have only one servo each, I would recommend using the plane as it was designed rather than the single servo per wing arrangment that hobbyking has supplied.
The battery I purchased was recommended to add to my basket on the page of this plane, be careful doing this as my products arrived with different connetors for the battery to connect to the plane. My plane came with a TX90 female plug and the battery had a TX60 male, it doesn't state this in the specifications of the plane. This wasn't too much of a bother for me to find an adapter but I would like to order goods and know I have the right things the first time.
I hope my feedback has given some good insight and above all, happy flying!
JakeThe fuselage design is well planned, lots of room for battery and auto pilot. On 6S, climbs out well. I was concerned about being hard to throw since it has no wheels, but bigger problem is the 3 blade props on landing which break. I replace both with two blade 10X7.
Flight controls are not good. I think they make design error and you have to cut 10mm from front of elevator to fix trim and make level with wing. The ailerons are small and far inward from wing tip. Mixing rudder with aileron is big help also.
The assembly time was quick; however clevis are fragile. I broke one while tightening by hand to linkage.
The flaps are optional and servos were not included. I am not sure they are needed to fly slow, but I may try to use for additional aileron control.
Price is good considering it comes with servos, motors, speed control, and ubec.Great Components, Easy Build, Easy to transport - But who's idea was it to give it a Lamborghini nose!!!???
I must have maidened this 5 times just to see if the design flaw (Nose area downforce) was worth overlooking but alas I did not find a way around it.
The nose is so shard with more surface area than the elevator the moment you pick up speed she just wants to Dive! Dive! Dive!
I still think she is savable by modifying the nose - when I am up to it I will let you guys know. But in the meantime, think twice before this purchase.
