Any excuse to fly
It doesn't look like a lot of inside room.

It doesn't?? Look at the second image. See the size of it compared to that standard folding chair? The thing is HUGE!

I can't tell its size relative to the chair because the chair appears to be a few feet in the background. It does look large, but I'd like to see a shot with a ruler or an object with known dimensions inside the plane.

Biggest problem with something like that is you have to balance it both fore and aft and right to left. Huge issue with the stryker type planes.

You'll probably need a stabilizer like the FY20A to fly it hands free.

Grapevine news says its 1.2 meter wingspan, with tons of hardware space.

Hope I can get a hold of more pictures. It really looks interesting. Maybe my first flying wing.

What i've heard....

The 3rd picture is the RB-5, that has 1.5 meter wingspan.

The Stryker-like plane has a wing span of 1.2 m.


Didn't see it myself, so I'm just repeating what was told to me.

Agreed. Any swept wing FPV aircraft needs to have a fuselage that extends all the way
back past the CG to give the option of moving the battery (or batteries) back further
when you've got heavy FPV gear (HD cams etc) up front. It doesn't matter how huge
the cockpit area is, if you can't use most of it without making the plane nose heavy.

From another thread...
"Hi,
Sorry for the late reply, the new X-5 will be rady the end of this month,
the wing span is about 1.3m, and have a bigger wing area than falcon.


Best,
BEVRC.com
The biggest webshop for FPV in Asia, buy yours directly from the world's factory!"

So maybe same wing span as the falcon but with better wing area, very nice for me
