Another thing you can do is drill three holes in the fuse and glue three bottle caps in place. Like the holes on a bowling ball. The zaggy folks uses to do this. It gives you a place to grip and push off from. Just don't tell TIC you're doing it!

The ad is funny but in a teenager kind of way, "Skyhunter the best fpv plane ever" LOL. Why not write something substantial or even remotely true?

This is what I did to the SW. It worked well but was more a tinkering effort than anything.

I flew behind a large farm shed and lost both VTX and RX link destroying it.

I enjoy the flying more keeping the model light and simple now and that how I'll probably keep my SH unless it's just too difficult to launch.....which I doubt.

as I look back, my old SkyWalker v5 was like a "RUBBER" plane.
This SkyHunter has no flexing I see no flexing on mine whatsoever....!
(its stout!).

If you can get your hand around the fat fuse, it's not difficult to hand launch (at least with one
battery so far). If you look at the third launch in my first SH vid, can see that the trick is to hold it
behind you tipped nose high so it doesn't try to pull itself forward out of your hand before you
can throw it, then give it a good upwards loft as it arcs over your head. The 12" prop is even
with the bottom of the fuse, and my hand is well away from the fuse an instant after release,
and the plane doesn't drop at all. Had a little headwind for that launch, but I don't expect to
see problems in no wind.

extremely aerodynamic. 20-40 watts just isn't enough.

Skyhunter normal cruise amps is about 8A (4S 15000mah nano battery, no wind),the FPV video in home page is OSD Autopilot go home, following wind and drop height, so amps is 2-3A

Yes, but as Daemon already pointed out, the plane was rapidly descending in
altitude during that time. My point was about cruising amps being as low
as 2-3A. Besides, Daemon already averaged ~7A on a 3 cell. Your 8A cruising
number is a bit high for a 4 cell.

Has any one used the glue that came with the SkyHunter?

I wondering if I should use it or CA..

Stock glue is probably safer to supply for those who are not familiar with how to work with CA.

Without doubt the best to use in my opinion, also if you run short, get UHU POR, even better, thinking about it get the UHU before the stock glue
However, it's only good if you use it properly, DONT glue then join straight away, wait till the glue has dried before joining together
