FPV Skywalker Build Journal Updates


I've been documenting my first FPV plane build, the Skywalker, on my website.
I'm nearly complete and have hundreds of photos and pages of information now. Take a look, maybe you can get a few ideas! I'm going to FPV maiden the plane soon!

I've also created a page dedicated to the electronics side of the build that I'm updating.

I've just received my Fat Shark Dominators as well, check out the pictures and info!

Glad you like it, the hinges are just some standard pin hinges, I think I picked them up at a local hobby shop, but you can get them many places online too.
I like them for their looks and function, they do leave a little gap between the wing and aileron for example, but doesn't seem to be a huge deal. If I did it again I may try to embed the hinge just a little more to minimize any gap.

cool, thanks for the tips, I'm building one now, and just used clear tape as hinges, but don't like em, I'm going to order some of those hinges as they seem much better (I found the robart pin hing point 1/8" on some websites)
thanks for sharing and excellent work, I've used your build to help me with my build
