I have been told by Vivian at X-uav that the cost of The Clouds will be around $4500.

You are absolutely correct!!!!!!!!!


.....but there are 2 versions, there is a (1.8m)hobbiest version and a (2m)UAV/Commercial version.
The only difference is the type of FOAM material the plane is.
The hobbiest version is $155.00 and the Commercial version is $4-5K

The foam version is the same foam material "WE" as hobbiest are
use to, exactly the same material on the miniTalon, Talon....etc....
That is plenty sufficient for YOU and YOUR homeboys

all in all, the hobbiest version which this thread was all about is $155.00

From what I see in the photos, the motors are mounted on a wooden plate which appears to be glued to the foam. Is this really the way the motors are supposed to be securely attached?

If so, that will not hold for long.

I really want to like this plane but I don't know if enough thought was given to the design, from a technical point of view.

It's not about QC. Most foam pieces from China are generally good quality. I'm talking about the quality of the level of design and the amount of thought that went into it.

If a company is going to invest so much time into designing an airframe and money into making the molds for it and say it is the product of 10 years of experience, then I think design is something that should be considered more seriously.

Vivian told me today the mfm is 2500mm span and the epo 1880mm.

I truly Think that xuav knows how to make a good plane. Look at the talon. Its a great plane.

Skywalker did have some succesfull planes, but a couple of times they failed bigtime.

I Think this clouds Has more wing area and we can see that at the fuselage the wings are much wider. Normal airplanes also have this. And normal airplanes are most efficint for high loads.

I really Think this can be a winner and therefore would like to try it.
