Nope.
Even if they did, you wouldn't want to pay the overseas shipping on just a 48" rod anyway,
and during Chinese New Year you wouldn't get it any time soon. Goodwinds has
what you need. BTW, I double checked, it's actually 12mm (or 0.472") by 48".
The original tube is 47" (probably so it fits inside a 48" box) but you can just push
a 48 inch rod into the foam a little bit (half inch either way) to extend the holes in the wings.

I just got a pretty brown box from Cambria Hobbies! Thanks Mark - That was fast! Great service. Perfect plane - packing was superb... all parts seem to be there on first inspection.
Now where is that box from Hobby King....

What a great video! You've convinced me to buy a Skyhunter.
Can you please list your power setup? (motor, batteries, esc, etc...)

Cheers mate!

Can someone please tell me what the length of the plane is from the tip of the nose to the end of the elevator? (ie: full length of the plane)

hi everyone,

I am considering this plane as my next fpv rig. I do have a few questions though:

1) Which motor would you guys recommend for high efficiency on a 4S setup? I'm looking at running 2 x 4S 4000mah batteries in parallel so I need something that will be efficient. Not to concerned about speed.

2) Is there a preferred vendor? I noticed some places have it priced at $139 while others have it priced at 159... any reason why there's a difference?

3) How is the wing mounted to the fuselage? Elastic bands? Screw on? ... if it is a screw on, will the screws not wear off in due time?
