I got my Skywalker a few days ago from Readymaderc. I believe its the V2 model, only the 2 carbon tubes in the wing. It only took 3-4 days from placing the order to delivery. The plane was double boxed, no damage at all.

Last I read, 5.8GHz Vtx was flown to 3km using the 12dBi antenna. Plus, it interferes with absolutely nothing on-board the airplane. If one wants to fly nearby with a very good image quality, it is an ideal option.

Ayup, the ReadyMadeRC plane is indeed the V2 unit. As far as I can tell, I ordered the last one he had in stock on Thursday...

Power Setup

Hey Guys,

So I bought the power setup from bevrc for the skywalker. I wanna pair it up with a 4S 5000mah battery. The esc is 45amp. Should I be using a EC3 or EC5 ????

Was able to show off my Skywalker at the Become a Pilot Day. This was at the Air and Space Museum in Dulles, Va. I had a few of my videos running on a monitor where the RC Club was running simulators..

It is a hobby. There is a little research and development that each of us do. Variation and Observation is great.
When anyone finds a discovery or problem it is solved with communications.
I would suggest to read the threads. Filter the Gobbledygook as best you can.

500 pages doesn't sound like "a little research" lol

im sure a lot of guys including me would appreciate it very much.

There are numerous ways to expand lift and, control, to a given plane in design.
I Love the fact that many express a smaller growing as a Father.
