Hey guys! (and girls) I noticed a lot of people do love their X8 but they are pimping them quite a lot... Most of the time going above the max weight of the aircraft or going faster creating flutter.…Continue

Differential Spoilers on X8

Started by Lockhart. Last reply by Ray Anderson Dec 20, 2016. 5 Replies

Has anyone attempted this on the X8? The X8 does not seem to be particularly prone to yaw wobble. Nonetheless, yaw control would be nice to have. And, implementing differential spoilers would be an…Continue

I recently built an X8 launcher and thought that I would share the plans. The legs are removable, but at the moment, not adjustable. The trigger isn't anything special and I hope to modify it…Continue

It does need quite a bit of elevon deflection. More so than other flying wings. Ah well, back to the drawing board.....

It wasn't me, but some unfortunate individual on RCGroups.

I believe that he did not checkout his aileron performance on the ground to see if it was correct prior to his maiden flight.

Were the magnet canopy latches that bad that Skywalker had to revert to a new canopy latching system that totally sucks since it hangs out in the airstream and is totally ugly?

anyone know the airfoil used on the X8, RvJET, eBee and CastralLTD?

Hit the deck this afternoon with my X8 during my APM maiden from the death roll. I was flying in stabilize, LOS and dropped airspeed during a high turn. My fault entirely. My CG is at the manufacturers recommended but I think I may shift it forward slightly because I noticed a bit of porpoising after reviewing the footage.
