Hobbyking Fiberglass FPV Plane

I've just found that ! So i share it with you
I don't think i'll buy one cause i like to repair my planes with hot water and tape But this could be interesting for some of us !

This plane is still in development, the only specs available are :
Length: 1100mm
Wingspan: 1680mm











Looks like a fiberglassed Skywalker

It looks like the skywalker.

Hot water? Do you repair you broken planes with hot water? I just use tons of epoxy to put it back together

Yes, when EPO is compressed by a crash you put it in very hot water and it will expand, then you make it smooth with your thumb or a spoon

Shameless!

Looks like HobbyKing has found a new cash-cow.....

.......seems they have figured out that we FPV pilots will buy almost anything if you add "for FPV" in the name of the thing....

......or could be.... we will buy ANY new thing that come along..... that LOOKS like it MIGHT be good for FPV....

Anyone want to buy a foam Skywalker....still in the box? I think I need this new one.... (kidding, just kidding)

(Yeah I know, some/most pilots are more selective than that.... I'm just having fun.... )

good thing the planes to make good FPV videos are hard to manufacture, build and fly. you all invest your money and time into "big easystars", we'll enjoy the fast and stable planes in the meantime
