Skywalker 1900mm FPV Plane
 
I just ordered the new bevrc skywalker-1900mm. Who is going to try this one as a new FPV Platform and how did you set it up. ESC, Motor, Prop, etc. They claim it will fly over 1 hour with the new wingspan.

I ordered one as a spare to my current skywalker. I will probably just try and put the wing from this one on my current setup if it fits the same.

Very good will be waiting to hear how you make out with the other wing !!

Will they be selling the wing separately? and I assume they would fit on to the old V5 fuz. I could not go through rebuilding the fuz and all the pan and tilt again.

OK, so if I add a foot center section in my V2 would it be basically the same flight characteristic:confused:

BEVRC are going to sell the wings as seperates as well as the new version, but they have none in stock yet. The 1900 wings will fit all versions.

Lets hope they are better designed than the previous ones lol

yesssss! It's seems not a bad idea for hesitating such long time on V5. lol just ordered one 1900

Thats great I have 2 V5 that I haven't put together yet . I Will get a set or two of those 1900 wings when they are out .

I have a v5 sitting in customs right now. Should get it next week sometime :)

It will be great if the longer wing does fit with little or no modification needed.

If the performance differences between the original standard wing and the new 1900 wing are substantial, (which is very likely the case) then it would be nice to have both, and use one or the other depending on flight conditions, etc.

Having both wings for one plane would also be handy in case you have a mishap at the field and damage a wing, you can get back in the air quickly using the other wing at least...

great to see a dedicated thread for this puppy...
unfortunately I cannot justify (not even to myself) buying another FPV ship. BUT if one of my planes go down, I will be ordering one of those, so I am following this thread with great interest :D

Good observation. I have a plane called the syncro that has 2 wings. One is kind of a glider the other is a short sport wing that flys about 80 mph.

If no hardware was mounted to the wings it might serve as 2 platforms by simply changing wings. I will keep that in mind when I build mine.

I can, but to be honest, i dont think ill be getting another skywalker, it`l be the X8

#13 Daemon Feb 12, 2012 12:41 PM

I really don't see one being a replacement for the other.

I will replace it for sure... :-)

#15 Coyote64 Feb 13, 2012 11:35 AM

Really Ian ? I see the X8 as a skywalker without the downsides

Load carying capacity - Yes
Flight duration of a walker - Yes + more
Stable - Yes

Badly designed wings that snap at the thought of doing a roll - Nope
Spare problems with wing design - Nope
Weak rear stab`s - Nope

Its got all the right features of a Skywalker, with none of the crap engineering you get with a walker. Win win to me :)
