Yeah. Seems good. Wings look a bit thin maybe? But will see if anyone likes the EPO one. I am in a toss up between the Twinstar and this. Twinstar is $99. This was the same price. Twinstar on the lead now.

I haven't had a twinstar, but I would imagine if long range is what you are after that one motor will be more efficient than two smaller faster spinning motors. I can't see how the twinstar could have more room either. But it is at least a tested airframe, where the skywalker is something of an unknown still..

[Quote = Cralis; 14957650] Ouais. Semble bon. Wings paraître un peu mince peut-être? Mais va voir si quelqu'un aime le OEB. Je suis dans une pile ou face entre le Twinstar et ce. Twinstar est de 99 $. Ce fut le même prix. Twinstar sur la tête maintenant. [/ QUOTE]

hello,
I Have bought new twinstar for my project. I tried everything, and that is the best in my opinion for the fpv
skylwalker when I saw, I say "waohh" super plane, but seeing what happens though I'll wait for everyone to be sure after testing this one!
the price is expensive ($ 140) it must fall to $ 80 lol!

My hope is to achieve a bet with a plane to 26 km (and possibly return)!
skywalker seems to be good for it (less drag than the Twinstar) but I'll try anyway even with the Twinstar!
merci

Yeah. I have decided not to get one, since lowpricerc raised the price. $99 I may have done, but I'll have to get a twinstar instead. Proven plane, made by a reputable manufacturer. Not as much space, but, cheaper and it will do the job.

Pity, because the Skywalker looked good on paper. No good reviews though. So too much money for the gamble.

This plane will be so much more attractive if was moulded from real EPP foam even from the high density 1.9 - indestructible stuff !

I decided to stick with my first idea and go for a PZ Radian instead of this one. So far I must say I don't regret at all !

Fuselage has been joined and the old stocking trick used again in a similar way to the wings.

Looking good Fergus, looking really good. Shame about the toroid on the elevator, this is a really busy plane you got there !.

The stocking trick is really neat and it gives it that silky lovable touchy feeling

I am glad you came back to show us more. I am conviced that in spite of all the efforts you will be glad to get that plane. I am sure it will be one of you favorites.

Please let us know as much as you can about the maiden flight and you experiences ! Thanks for keeping us posted
