I think I'm going to lose it. They've sent me two left wings.

I wonder what's going on there. People getting random changes to the Skywalker, some get EPO wing, some get balsa wing, and now the same story for the canopy? What the heck?! I think they should let us know what's going on.

But it really sucks that you got two left wings

i was about to pull the trigger on a skywalker, but this is the reason i am holding back. looks like the chinese are trying to bandaid the inventory/production problems by mixing and matching kits so that people can at least fly what they purchased. I, for one, am not interested in this gamble. i guess i'll have to sit tight and wait.

The balsa wing skywalker was not purchased from Bevrc. Order from Bevrc and you will get a foam wing EPO and a ply canopy camera mount. Mine came Saturday and everything's Hunky dory!
And I got a left and a right wing, always helps!
The Rc4y website although looking very similar to Bevrc, doesn't stock the same quality products (Ezuhf for instance). I would be very dubious with all the Chinese copies, that the skywalker received is not a clone. Still, looks cool though!

wac helped me finish out my 1900 purchased from RC4Y. Haven't flown it yet. It does look pretty good though. Took it out to a field but unfortunately I had a bad rx. Should have it in the air soon. Thanks wac! He did let me fly his SW fpv for my first time flying anything! Was pretty cool! Will update on this wing hopefully by tomorrow.

Certainly looks excellent! The Chord seems less than the 1900 foam wing?

@flyandi - Burnt through

Lol, good to hear it, that could have been embarrassing

My walkers seen better days, I'll get a 1900 but only if they are foam

Plywood camera mount

Not sure about using the ply camera and vtx mount supplied with the 1900 kit from Bevrc. Does anyone else have experience of mounting the vtx up front as opposed to behind the motor? I'm sure it's covered on an old thread somewhere but can't seem to get a definitive answer from my searches
Thanks
