Great Day At The Airport

........the skylane is one of those cheap electric or .15 planes....flew it last week electric with no luck....took 'er home and dusted her off....installed a .25 instead of .15 ....9x6 prop ....WOW!!!! still a cheap plane...but now it flies!!!

.......buddy boxed my son up to it after trimming it out....with all the extra weight of the engine it needs to come in a little hot...nosed over on us a couple times on landing....i will sturdy up the nose gear to help a little with this....... boys face in the picture says it all.............take yours out to fly....dont have one? find one ! ...its a heck of allot better than fishing

Glad to see you got her flying. I fly mine with this motor(same one on the Hyperion Extra):

with an APC 9x4.5e prop and a 1350mAh 3S lipo. It scoots along nicely for 6-7 minutes doing a couple of touch and go's. I also converted the front landing gear to a steerable setup using this:

with a reinforced firewall.

I was thinking about selling my 3DHobbyshop 55" SHP but it's too big to ship safely. If you like that little Hyperion Extra you'll really like the 55" SHP.
It's the same as this one but a different color.
