I got my Skywalker a few days ago from Readymaderc. I believe its the V2 model, only the 2 carbon tubes in the wing. It only took 3-4 days from placing the order to delivery. The plane was double boxed, no damage at all.

Last I read, 5.8GHz Vtx was flown to 3km using the 12dBi antenna. Plus, it interferes with absolutely nothing on-board the airplane. If one wants to fly nearby with a very good image quality, it is an ideal option.

Ayup, the ReadyMadeRC plane is indeed the V2 unit. As far as I can tell, I ordered the last one he had in stock on Thursday...

Power Setup


Hey Guys,

So I bought the power setup from bevrc for the skywalker. I wanna pair it up with a 4S 5000mah battery. The esc is 45amp. Should I be using a EC3 or EC5 ????

Was able to show off my Skywalker at the Become a Pilot Day. This was at the Air and Space Museum in Dulles, Va. I had a few of my videos running on a monitor where the RC Club was running simulators..

It is a hobby. There is a little research and development that each of us do. Variation and Observation is great.
When anyone finds a discovery or problem it is solved with communications.
I would suggest to read the threads. Filter the Gobbledygook as best you can.

500 pages doesn't sound like "a little research" lol
If someone would care to sum up whats needed to improve/reinforce etc,
im sure a lot of guys including me would appreciate it very much.

There are numerous ways to expand lift and, control, to a given plane in design.
I Love the fact that many express a smaller growing as a Father.
