Something came from Simon the BigNose (though text only, not too much data but still better than nothing) and there is also some barely informative video shot in Indonesia (thanks to Fahmi43, also better than nothing).

However these two reports are not anywhere near a review one would expect to read in a magazine like "WHAT FPV airframe". With build log*, description of goods and bads, pictures, flight impressions in all detail and so on. With comparisons to a few other planes (thanks to Simon we at least know where the COndor is between 1680 and 1900, but that's too little).

* Rob38 published his log and pics at another website, errrr...

Please hurry up gents. There were many other guys willing to put their hands on the new Condors for free (not me, no - I live in China and have easier access to these things), but you were the first ones to grab the luck. It wasn't a charity, it was a deal. Chinese vendor carried out his obligation, what about you...
TBH with you I didn't upload any pics as I felt this thread had enough build pics to see how the plane came together (just thought it would be overdosing the thread), this is the reason why I didn't upload
As for what else I can do for you I cant answer because FPVmodel have said they like my review and have actually got my video I did on they're web site.
The weather here sucks at the moment and with work commitments, also being heavily into multis as well, time is a real headache for me at the moment
When the weather breaks I promise to upload more vids, perhaps a run through of what I have on the Condor as well
Hope this goes to someway of answering your question
Kind regards
Simon

Oooooohhhhh. Good point! I didn't notice it until you mentioned it. I use a GoPro for my camera. The flat cockpit canopy allows me to mount a servo under the deck and the GoPro above it. If this doesn't have that flat deck then I'll look at another plane..

If you look at my blog you can see how I mounted the GoPro and pan servo on the Skywalker 168..

They are interchangeable.

or you could cut a flat out of the foam. Put some liteply on it and mount gopro to that.

Fuselage is more or less identical. You can fit 1680 wings to a 1880 or vice versa.
Bignose tried mine on his.

I don't think any of the new ones do the flat canopy. I agree with bignose - would be good to have a flat one with

If it's something they can do on the cheap with extra cost it'd be nice. I know some vendors like to change minor things so they can sell more accessories. Granted I'm not going to complain about a $10 deck. It'd just be nice to have something right out of the box so you don't have to nickle and dime the thing.

ESC 60amp.

It will be more powerful, but cruising amps will be lower.
According to calculator that motor on 4S with 9x6 prop is going to prop stall.

Maybe there should be a beta-tester blacklist, in which non-producing selected testers are named? Sould be easier for FPV-vendors to avoid the ones that doesn't contribute? If nothing else I guess it would increase the chance of testers actually bothering to live up to their words. I too am a little annoyed when new products are announced and ppl are promising good reviews yet produce nothing.

The new Skywalker Condor from fpv.model.com

The new Skywalker Condor from www.fpvmodel.com.

The aircraft has been completed for some time. I have not tested it and fly in FPV yet but hope and have the opportunity soon.
I've just taken a test visually, and I suspect that this will be my new favorite.

It is very good that skywalker factory has made ​​all versions wings (168.1880 and 1900) so that it fits on a single fuselage
As a tip to the factory should be accompanied by hinges to the rudder and aileron.

This is a temporary video until I fly FPV. More to come.
I thing this is a winner for FPV plane.

I 've been flying 1680 all this season and i loved it but it's time to build new one. this time i'm gonna fly on 2x5000 4S combo and fly farer (around 30km range) with faster cruise speed, which version would be more suitable for me ? 1880 or 1900 ? Is there really such a big diffrence ?

Greetings
