I have a grey Skyhunter and it's seriously the best flying airplane I have.

I'll take another one please!

The only way a US vendor can offer competitive pricing on big box items like this is to buy in
large volume and literally ship them (slow boat from China). That's a risky proposition with many
RC planes because their popularity often wanes fast as they're replaced by the next big thing, and
is demand is often seasonal. However, the Skyhunter is a great flying and very versatile FPV platform,
and every time other people see mine fly, they want one so I think RMRC will do all right here.

I've been waiting for the Anaconda, but I've always loved this bird. That is a really good price for such a sweet plane! Now I want both...argh!

So is this a foamy? Does the wing come off for transport?

The wing separates from the fuselage, but stays in one piece along with the twin booms and tail. Yes, it's foam.

That sounds like it would fit my car like my solid wing 2M gliders. Thanks for the info

It's actually a two piece wing with a removable joiner rod so it breaks
down quite small. One of my flying buddies carries his in a Miata.
You could glue it together, but I do not recommend that, because if you break the joiner (which I've
done a couple times due to crashes), you'd have to replace the whole wing.
It is plenty strong as a two piece wing. There are other things that can use reinforcement
if you want it to last longer.
For transport many of us just remove the tail group from the booms and booms from the wing
and leave the wing/fuse screwed together.

it looks like the plane is $109 if I'm reading right. Is that just for the plane or does it come with the motor and servos? Anyone Know. First time I have seen this and I really like it.

That's just the airframe.
For those unfamiliar with this airframe, check out the Skyhunter thread.
