Skyhunter - New 1.8m twintail FPV/UAV EPO platform

Is this the first EPO twintail UAV/FPV ship?

Excellent. Like the concept. Lets hope the wing spar and tail spars are strong enough !! LOL

I like that they are listening - component tray up higher to free battery space - this should be added to skywalker...

This is a cool plane,
I'll probably buy one;-).

I'm hoping it doesn't fly like that twin boom Vormatec (sp.?)VAMP brand.
When you cut throttle, it slightly dives down/or there is 'no' glide factor on it whatsoever,
(thats with CoG pushed backed).

Worst $200 I've spent! :-(

This company is coming out with nice FPV planes (SkyWalker Condor 1880).
There slow to come out with planes, but I hope this "Twin Boom" design is
for us FPV'ers :-)

Cool design, but the tiny little hole I see for the main wing joiner/spar makes me
suspect that they've made the spar too small. Seems to be the weak link
in just about every current large EPO airframe.

If they use same spar as the 1880 is should be good. I have one of those and its very strong - not like the ones I had on earlier skywalker 1680's
It says 12mm OD and 10mm id.

Hope its strong enough at those weak points....
maybe they'll read "Daemon" view points and upgrade those weakness'.

(crossing fingers) that it'll glide well power off

Hmm looks like they are out of stock. You guys bought up all the planes didn't you! I'd probably convert this over to a A tail vs the H tail they have going on. I'll keep an eye out for this plane and hopefully it'll come back in stock.

Sadly I'm a sucker for TBP's
