Go ahead, you were issued free airplanes not as gifts but to try them out and share your impressions in full detail.
Pliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiz.
Just post a list of each beta tester and also what kind of review they have produced. This problem is common and unfortunately many ppl promise much more then they deliver. At the cost of all the more serious ppl that would've produced good reviews but didn't get a model.

I am neither of these groups of ppl though.

I was promised covering and rubberbands for my Condor videos by Rose. I stopped getting any response from anyone at your company right after I paid and received my plane, i thought you closed shop.

Sorry for the delay to post my results. I am in the process of editing video of the condor, which it will be ready in a couple of days. OK, this plane is awesome. It is steady, even with high winds. The lift is amazing; I flew in 2km high in no time. With my motor setup, the current consumption in cruising speed is about 6Amp and at full throttle 36Amp. In my opinion the weakness of the plain is in the tail. Needs reinforcement, otherwise prepare for a lot of vibrations in high speeds.
I'll post more details together with my video.

My setup is:
Motor: NTM 3548 1100Kv
ESC: 60amp turnigy plush
Prop: 9x6 APC
Motor battery: 4S 4000 -5000mah
OSD: Eagle tree
Cam: RMRC 480
Vtx: 800mW 1.3GHz
Vtx antenna: inverted vee
Video battery: 3S 2200mah

The review is unbiased. The guys at fpvmodel.com have been great - no pressure at all. So you are getting real honest feedback.... It is what it is..! warts and all

COG looked around 4.5 inches back - on the servo wire. It did feel like it could go back a bit more. It would slow it down and glide a little better. I didn't have any pitch up/down on throttle on/off and it did feel very sweet to fly.
Agree - different cog can make for different review
That said, the Skywalker has an incredibly wide range of CoG it can fly with. More than any other plane I've flown.

Just to be aware, this wing has a different profile to the others that may not be apparent from the pics.
It is slightly swept back from the wing root and has a flat bottom profile. The dihedral is right out at the wingtips compared to the others which are much further towards the wing root.
No undercamber like the 1900.
Its also heavier - both the foam and the spar.

It is a bit more aerobatic / faster - which probbaly matches the change in wing profile / weight
It still glides very well if I didn't make that clear. I'm even thinking of entering into a local competition here for best non glider power off glide times....

One of the guys here has the 1900 and 1680. To give a comparison of the three between us although neither have flown all three...

ALL are stable.
1900/1680 self stabilise more than 1880. i.e. let go of sticks they return to level flight
1900 is least aerobatic. 1880 is most. 1680 in between
1900/1680 seem similar power to cruise. 1990 a touch more.
1680 takes least power to climb
1900 best at picking thermals / 1880 worst
1880 copes with wind turbulence best 1900 worst
1900 slowest 1880 fastest
1880 is better for aggressive flying. 1900 least

Buy one fuselage and extra 2 sets of wings.... enjoy whatever style of flying you want to do! cool eh?
Its an awesome plane. I have no doubt it will be a big success
Great description, but you should also mention the cruising speed with each of the wings. If 1880mm version burns more to cruise, does it cover more ground? Version with 1900mm wing surely is slower than say 1680mm one.

4.VASSILIS VOUTSAS-Greece EMS:EE696054914CN

5.rob38-Holand-EMS: EA120804870HK

I'd like to personally address Messrs. Deltadeville, VASSILIS VOUTSAS and to lesser extent rob38: you guys got the planes, and here guys like me are not breathing while waiting for your reports and reviews.

Nothing has come out so far.

Something came from Simon the BigNose (though text only, not too much data but still better than nothing) and there is also some barely informative video shot in Indonesia (thanks to Fahmi43, also better than nothing).

However these two reports are not anywhere near a review one would expect to read in a magazine like "WHAT FPV airframe". With build log*, description of goods and bads, pictures, flight impressions in all detail and so on. With comparisons to a few other planes (thanks to Simon we at least know where the COndor is between 1680 and 1900, but that's too little).
___
* Rob38 published his log and pics at another website, errrr...

Please hurry up gents. There were many other guys willing to put their hands on the new Condors for free (not me, no - I live in China and have easier access to these things), but you were the first ones to grab the luck. It wasn't a charity, it was a deal. Chinese vendor carried out his obligation, what about you...
