This flying wing has been around for a while, but now it is also available from Hobbyking. The X8 is made from EPO and with spars in the wing and canopy, this aircraft is virtually indestructable. With a wingspan of 2120mm (about 83.5 inch) this wing is capable of carrying some pretty nice gear for FPV or UAV's. It should be able to carry 1-1.5kg in extra weight. There is a camera mount in the nose and a forward oblique mount for GoPro camera's.
Even though this plane is big, it is easy to transport it. Both the wing panels and the vertical stabilisers are bolt on. The canopy is hold on by magnets. There is a spar molded into each wing panel.
To complete this aircraft, the following items are suggested:
- 400 - 800 watt motor (depending on your AUW)
- Propellor: 12x6 - 13x8 (foldable?)
- Battery, depending on motor size: 4S/3000mAh - 6S/5000mAh
- Speed controller: 40 - 70 Amps
