The Video Maiden of Skyote NX8XX


With only a sight breeze to contend with, I took the Skyote out this morning. I made four flights total. My video techiques have to be improved for sure as most of it was not usable so I cut it to try and get enough to show you the plane. Mostly I videoed blue sky, especially when the plane was close to me.

I'm going to practice more tomorrow morning. Enjoy... Bob

Bob: super plane! and a good flyer, it seems. Does it like light air only?

I feel for ya on the vids, Some of the best maneuvers I ever did were just outside the camera frame! Ah, well, eventually we will get those perfect pics if we keep doing the filming!

Hey Springer... The little Skyote is pretty wind sensitive, since it is so light and I used an u/c wing. It flys a lot like a light weight BB with the u/c wing. Bob

My Skyote


In deciding to build this plane I was curious as to the lack of a posting of the plane built just as the plans suggested. In spite of this I went ahead and built to the best of my ability the plane just as Tony designed it. This is my result. It is powered by a BW 1300 on an 8x4 prop, 10 amp headsup esc and a rhino 460 3sp from montorc. It has 4 TP 5gr servos (4 pack from hobbypartz). It balanced perfectly with no additional modifications or added weight. It flew perfectly on its maiden incl. ROG and landing. I am impressed with it and can't wait to really explore its capability when I become a better pilot. It does NOT fly like Tony's SE5A ie. it goes where you point it so you better be on your toes and paying attention. I work in $tree foam. The only mods I made were to put a stick along the bottom of the rear fuz to stiffen things up, my wooden spar inserts and flying wires. I would be glad to discuss the build and the set up I use to fly it on my DX6I, just pm me if you prefer for simplicity.
