That is cool, just not looking forward to the huge shipping cost :(

Pretty sweet.  How much does the airframe weigh, without batteries and motor?

Very nice.  What price are we looking at?

I don't have much information yet. But I don't think the shipping costs will be much more than the Skywalker 168. Around 35-40 usd.

If the final version will be black or white foam I have no idea.

I'm Just looking forward for a platform special made for our hobby. If it was made out of composite some would say this a pro UAV platform.

Now the new purple Autopilot is soon out on the street I bet it will fit nicely inside this black bird. I can't wait. The old lazy Skywalker will be retired in my hangar.

Off topic but what is the White/ orange wing in the background?

Big wing looks really nice but too big for me :)

Small white/orange one appears to be a Skywalker X5
