Wow the area inside is fantastic! Great find. Top of my list now.

That thing does look awesome.  IIRC from rcgroups, new units will be in white, since they couldn't get the black foam strong enough.  It's a shame... it's what Batman would fly if he took up RC!

update: nope, they're black and they're shipping!

...for $100 in materials

(and $5000 in tools and equipment!) :)

PS: what does "Valid Payload" mean?  What is the MTOW?

@Mark - The new units are black.  I got one coming.

They even sell a black Skywalker now.

Just got mine too. I made an unboxing video for those considering getting one...I know I like to see what its ACTUALLY going to look like.

Are the wings removable or permanently glued to centre?

Comment by John Moore on June 1, 2012 at 5:22am

Ive been reading the RCG thread and it looks a like a few people have used plywood plates and a mounting screw to make the wings detachable.

The wings are removable. The attachment uses two carbon fiber tubes and a plywood plate. Only two screws are used to fix the wings.

And four screws for the winglets
