With built in draggy hump Hooks?? Is that another fuselage in the background? $2195 with the engine is not too shabby a price point. The wheels might need modding seems very heavy at 22kgs? That two kilos will make all the difference in Europe, it starts getting more complex to certify stuff above 20kg.

It's the same fuselage in background just without top.

The weight is what DHL charge because of Size. The overall weight is not above 20 kg. I will find the exact weight.

Draggy hump is for Para landing.

Yeah, I do agree about the hump not being the best idea.. especially when an airframe like that seems to have loads of space already..  ALso it seems to be more of a block than a hump when looking at it from the font.  Is it something that can be removed?

Otherwise for 2k, including an engine is a nice price!

I have one of this ...

Comment by eduardo on June 23, 2013 at 6:30am

Alex, the hump can be removed and a conventional cover are included in the kit.

I will post some pictures in my blog today.

Here you can have an idea of size of this plane.

The yellow plane is a 1/4scale piper j3

I am bought 3 airframes to compare: PENGUIM-B, SWAN-02 e MUGIN.

The mugin is a low cost option but its a good and big airframe.

Like the looks of this.

Just completed and flew a long delayed Skywalker  which I bought from Hooks few years back.  Flies very nice and docile. Surprisingly with heavy load. Will be testing it with AP assisted  FPV next week. I miss the Glass fiber fuse nose cover which I never received and at nearly 4 k.g fuse bottom is scrapping :(. Did few mods to original Skywalker which I will be blogging next month after all the testing/mod/flying is complete.

@Gary,  the  draggy hump does not seem that bad however how effective will it be with parachute deployment is to be seen in this pusher config. This space can take bat for ignition and or video + telemetry data TRX :).

@ Hooks ,


Does this include a fuel tank? how many & what capacity?

Dual rudder? Two rudder servos?   using " Y " harness to connect them both?

How is the wing attached to fuse?

Inside photos is highly desired. Flight video will be greatly appreciated. Cheers

total weight 12.343kg with dle60 engine.

I bought a mugin 3 with DELTA tail.It not have spare for 2 servo per surface. I will adapt to use 4 servos in rudder.

Como with 2 x 1500cc fuel tank.

I think a Para landing should only be a failsafe option, not a standard way to land the bird.

Comment by Morli on June 23, 2013 at 12:35pm


Yes and only with dead stick else para gets chopped  up by prop :(.  Any Ideas/suggestion  for para?
