If you want free shipping then bevrc is the place to get it from. I know you are not happy with their responds from with your CL. So it is up to you.

Nope, BEVRC is the only site that I've seen that offers free shipping.

Just received my free shipping Skywalker from BEVRC from Shanghai to Hong Kong in less than a week (4 days). Plane arrived in good condition, cannot complain.

LowPriceRC are literally down the road from me. Also have good service from them, but they charge for shipping and don't allow me to local pick up..... because they are just an office!

Hi
I am interested to order the Skywalker 2012 airplane from LowPricerc.
I did ask following questions from them several days ago but got no respond so far.
Currently following items are on my shopping list:
oSkywalker EPO EP Glider Aircraft (2012 version) for FPV
oMoxie Punch Series 30C 14.8V 4S 5000mAh Lipo,
oMoxie Brushless Outrunner Motor 990KV,
o APC 9x6 Thin Electric Pusher Propeller,
o Astral Alu E-prop Spinners Adapter Motor Shaft=5mm Propeller Shaft=8mm Set,
Have I chosen right setup (strong enough for a heavy FPV gear)? What kind of servo should I order? I have already the transmitter and receiver. Is there any other item I should include to my order beside the FPV equipments? I appreciate if someone helps me to choose related and recommended items which lowpricerc has in stock. I want to order everything from one store.

You could save yourself 56g (more important) and USD12 by going for the 20C 5000mah batteries.

The Skywalker should be pulling around 40 (ish) Amps..... 20C give you a ceiling of 100A which is plenty enough for the SW....30C is simply overkill and adding weight!

I use Emax ES08MA metal gear servos on the SW... I like these, they are very smooth for a 9g servo. You can get away with the plastic gear version on the ailerons ES08A....

Thank you dtm360. Have I chosen right propeller and spinner? The motor is strong enough for a heavy fpv gear? Also do you think it is necessary to order a program box like Moxie V Edition ESC 40A, HobbyWing Advanced Professional LCD Program Box. I have never had electric airplane and I am new in this. Any other item you would suggest to buy? Also I am wondering if the sales team or support team of LowPricerc ever responds to enquiries. I am a bit skeptic about them.

I actually use the Moxie V 50A ESC. Same weight as the 40A, just gives you a little more margin for error. The 40A is probably just the same ESC with a few FETs missing.

I have the programmer also, but this is purely for convenience. You basically use it once or twice, once you find the right setting you will never use it again. All the settings can be programmed without it by listening to beeps and moving the TX sticks.

I use the basic 2814 980kv motor flies my 2.1kg SW fine. Don't expect to do any major aerobatics? The motor you are speccing is supposed to be more powerful, so you will be OK.

You may want to get a few more tubes of that foam glue and fibre tape for re-inforcing the tail, they are pretty cheap.

'Au' from Lowprice is OK, don't expect too much technical support on the build, but I did receive an ESC with a broken BEC before, he was pretty quick in responding and refunding the Paypal after I sent the unit back.

Thanks dtm360.
- I did not find Moxie 50A ESC on their website, how about choosing moxie 60A 2-4s 4A?
-I will also order the programmer.
- Emax ES08MA servos are not on their website list. I don’t know which servos to choose. Which one of Moxie servos are 9g? I prefer to use metal gear servos.
-I have also ordered servo tester. Do you think it is useful?
-Is 12x8 propeller good to go with 990kv motor?
- I do not have any battery charger or balancer. They have Astral batter balancer 3 in1. Is it useful to order?
-I ordered 4 Astral foam safe contact glue and 2 Astral super tape as you advised.
Since I want to order everything in one package and from one store, please advice if you think I will need anything else to setup the skywalker.
Sorry for my dummy questions.
