  • Small white/orange one appears to be a Skywalker X5

  • Off topic but what is the White/ orange wing in the background?

    Big wing looks really nice but too big for me :)

    I don't have much information yet. But I don't think the shipping costs will be much more than the Skywalker 168. Around 35-40 usd.

    If the final version will be black or white foam I have no idea.

    I'm Just looking forward for a platform special made for our hobby. If it was made out of composite some would say this a pro UAV platform.

    Now the new purple Autopilot is soon out on the street I bet it will fit nicely inside this black bird. I can't wait. The old lazy Skywalker will be retired in my hangar.

  • Very nice.  What price are we looking at?

  • Pretty sweet.  How much does the airframe weigh, without batteries and motor?
