Skywalker X6 1500mm flying wing

New Skywalker wing, x6

This looks like properly sized bird

Wing span: 1500mm
Wing area: 60dm2


Fuse looks a bit weak.

I dont like those fixed connectors, wing moves a bit and the connection is lost. Same thing was happening with the Multipex Cularis.

I'm sure there is a little play with those connectors as one!, When the wings flex,
the whole connection moves for safety. The Cularis connectors where Tiny 'servo connectors',
those will loose contact at some extreme flexing.

These connectors shown are bit more rugged.
Connecting 6+ servo connectors on the wings alone gets old and bothersome.
The quicker the deployment, the more enjoyable more me:-)

John at AsiaTechDrones is trying to put these on the Cyclops/Techpod wings too!

I was looking at this but when BEVRC adds a warning message about its flying characteristics that gets me concerned. I was thinking of maybe later getting an X7. I currently fly a Phantom FPV flying wing (FX-6i or FX-61) which is holding up.

My new X6

Hello from Austria.

My X6 arrived last week. When I saw my wing the first time out of the box I wasn't very happy with the shape of the big front nose. It looks like a shark. Now I found my own color design and it looks better for me
