Hello SPL

Sorry for delay. Recommended specification for this airplane 1200-1400 grams thrust. If you live in USA, I can give you an Ebay link, seller from USA.

We are use 2835-08 FSD brushless motor with this airplane. 3-4S LiPo can use. As prop 9060 APC as well. You can 30-40A ESC with this motor. Maximum current is 25A
I suggest 4S 3000-4500mAh LiPo batteries for this airplane.

2835-08 brushless motor link from USA is: http://cgi.ebay.com/MP2835-08-1038kv...8105QQihZ001QQ

Oh i see, I am sorry.

If you want I can add motor and prop to your EPO Skywalker box. Only e-mail me. Motor and APC prop is 17 USD if you want.

Best regards.
Adnan.

Cralis: For what I can see, accordind to the website the plane is $149 (was $125 this weekend ) and EMS shipping is $35.00 (Fixed shipping cost) .

For that price looks like there is no motor, no ESC or servos for this price. In other words, you get just the plane and you install your own gear.

Be carefull, this price is on http://www.fpvflying.com/products/Sk...r-UAV-FPV.html

FPVistanbull's website is http://www.fpvhobby.com/24-168-cm-wi...-airplane.html

Cheers mate!

Thanks for that! I'm keeping my eyes on it. It's not a known plane to me. Never seen it fly.. not sure of it's charactoristics... waiting for video, and maybe a full build thread. It looks nice though... I have a requirement for a big, slow flying stable plane. Big, to hold all the eagle tree goodies... stable and slow, because.. I fly junk.

What about replacement parts for this?

Also, I saw somewhere that there is a new version, with stronger foam. Like Multiplex foam, I wonder?

I'm like you Cralis. I would love some reports on building and flying this bird. You know how it is, we need to wait for the generosity of those who are willing to share their experience with us .

I love the look of the plane and the payload capability. I cant wait to see how Fergus is getting on with it !

Cralis, this is the ''new version'' with stronger EPO.

Have a look at Myflydreams's post : http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1159128

There is some videos of the plane in action.
