New drone model at HobbyKing

3689470622?profile=originalLooks cool and costs just $72. From the Hobby King product listing:

The Target Drone is a great little FPV platform that has been specifically designed for the job and not only is the kit cheap to buy, this great little model is also cheap to get in the air.

The Target Drone features an FG fuselage that is open at the front for camera mounting, there is also a built in anti-glare cover. The model is designed for a pusher motor as you would expect and it also features a mid mounted, large hatch for battery and equipment access, the large and open fuselage area not only has plenty of room for your FPV equipment and lipoly, it also provides plenty of battery and ESC cooling from the open front fuselage. The under carriage is robust, featuring screw in alloy leg's at the rear and a steerable nose wheel up front.

The Target Drone is a pretty quick build, servo extension leads are pre-installed into the balsa wing, which is mounted on a CF rod and epoxied into place. The supplied hardware is comprensive and the overall parts count low, meaning you will be experiencing FPV in double quick time. The Target Drone, with it's tailess, swept wing is one of the most unusual and interesting EP FPV models in it's class yet and is sure to get people's attention wherever it flies!

    What a stupid plane...

  • Looking forward to see first flight reports . Wing loading looks abit high so would be very fastflying.

    Also remove Landing gear for hand launching should work good. Hope it flyes as it looks. HK is doing prety good job on brinning this FPV drone models to us.

  • That's a nice looking drone.

  • ...And the lawsuit from Boeing begins!


    Seriously, this isn't the first ripoff... and they got sued into oblivion!  Overall, I'd give this two thumbs down... balsa wings, way to short a chord, ugly winglets...

  • Thanks Chris for sharing.

    Grab yours ASAP only 9 left in the stock. :)

  • Looks like i was modeled after the ScanEagle sUAS. I cant wait to start seeing reviews on the plane.
