But maybe it deserves a new thread, out from the so far 255 pages of skywalker.

By the way, the Mini SkyWalker is available now at FPV Hobby at 49$. I always bought these new airplanes here, Adnan is very professional and sends out order very quickly.

Some pictures:









Mine it's on its way.. arriving in about a week with a new 1 gram camera

and this little pan&tilt

Will keep you guys updated with my impressions...

why would the mini-skywalker be better than the Easystar ?
Does it fly better ?

The point of using a skywalker was because of the size !!
And when it`s smaller, I dont see the point :P

I don't think it's better, it's just another kind of airplane, smaller and with very nice design... i think the easystar can fly better if we talk about efficiency.

I personally considered the skywalker to make some fpv stunts, safe for people and stuff in case of crash, smaller also means stronger... and I just love the way it looks.

I'm thinking about getting one. I was wondering who was going to start the first build thread. I might pick one up after the first of the year.

I hear ya there. I love the Skywalker when I'm out at the field. However I'd like to have a small throw and go plane I can use. I'm thinking about throwing a 200mw 900mhz TX in one with a small camera. Doesn't have to be anything fancy. Hopefully it'll fit some 2100 packs. I have a few of them laying around I need to put to use.

I think that the EagleWing would be a better buy for a highly transportable "mini" FPV rig - although it's a few bucks more. I'm still looking at the specs of each though.
