Share two more photos from SkyWing. Next batch of SkyWing MXSes will use this new structure.

SkyWing says it's also possible to add the landing gear reinforcement structure to the last batch of MXSes. If there is enough interest, I'll ask SkyWing to make it available for purchase.

just used a peice of 1/2 styro insultation, some really course stuff and wraped in in 3mil depron. the legs are 3mill depron with another peice sandwhiched onto it and a channel made for the wire gear to fit in, then hotglued to the wire gire.

do you guys think a park 480 will be enuff for this, I'm having issues with my torque motor.

would a eflite power 10 be too much

feda, took your advice on the spinner, really needed it to get the prop beyond the nose

heres some flying pics of mine. I need to play around with the trottle curve to get power when I need it. Probably got 10min total time flying it. 2 flights one for pics and the toher for a video I'll post. My thoughts:
its BALISTIC, cant wait to fly it in calm conditions, and my wheelpants stayed on


I also discovered my tube was cracked in several places(last night before the flight)
feda can you tell the dimensions of the tube, I put a ruler up to it and it looks like 3/8 or 10mm
