Just curious, do you have any close-ups of installed servos and control rods? Can't really tell how the elevator servo is mounted, and how the wire goes to it. You say the tail is removable so I am looking to understand.

Is there an engine mount that comes with the kit?

What is the max prop the A/C could support and safely be launch with?

Just trying to determine what additional parts are needed beyond the motor, esc, prop and servos.

ALSO
Does the nose dimensions lend itself to using a pre-made PAN/TILT that fits the large SKYWALKER or other aircraft?

I can vouch for the T Motors, I did a bit of a review on some for Max at fpvmodels.com for my tri
Bearings and build quality are very good for the money, I'd recommend them anytime

I had the Bormatec "VAMP", which is a similiar design,
that was the worst ~$200 I spent....it didn't glide for crap!

When you cut the power 'off', the nose always dove straight down
no matter how far back the CoG was and no matter how light I was flying....
Something was wrong with the airfoil on that VAMP plane.... :-(

I'm hoping this SkyHunter atleast floats minimally without power:-)
Time will tell on members Reviews here....

fpvmania,
does this SkyHunter float decently? (I know its not a glider).

also,
there are 2 different web address for this SkyHunter?
is one a fake?

www.fpvmodel.com and www.fpvmania.com



Also, before I buy from your website, Can you tell me if I have been chosen
for the free plane reviews'? if not, i can order tomorrow :l-)

Yeah would be good to know what airfoil the plane has,
I mean look at the plane that's similar to the Sirius (cant remember the name sorry) looked good in the pics till it was flown, sunk like a stone cause of the wrong airfoil
Lets hope this has been thought out on the Skyhunter

I'm looking at either:
http://innov8tivedesigns.com/Cobra/C...6-12_Specs.htm

Or

http://innov8tivedesigns.com/Cobra/C...5-10_Specs.htm

Not sure of engine compartment dimensions and max prop size (also what prop gets dangerous for launching)
