Designed especially for FPV (First Person View) camera flight! This is a true FPV plane thats easy to build and comes packed with common sense FPV must-haves such as rear mounted servos for the elevator and rudder to help counter balance the additional radio gear, rear servos can also be moved up and down the tail's Carbon Fiber shaft to adjust CG. The narrow fuselage helps glide rates for longer flight times and yet it still has a large area for and aft of the CG to move the battery for better balancing when using heavy camera/Tx gear. Rear mounted 10inch pusher-prop diameter motor-mount keeps motor and esc away from the camera to reduce noise. EPP foam makes the plane very resistant to crashes and rough landings. The EPP-FPV glider has a twin CF-Spar 1.8m wingspan for higher, longer flight times with a wide range of camera equipment. The HobbyKing EPP-FPV has 4 channels (Ail, Rud, Elev, Thr) for agile performance and is reinforced with 2 CF spars on the main wing, a CF tail boom and CF elevator spar plus the ailerons have flat CF rods for stifness during fast turns or dives. The mian wing can be removed easily for transport.
The HobbyKing EPP-FPV can take any number of batteries however we recomend a 2600~4500mAh 3S pack for long flight times and good CG balance.
I just bought and tested this plane. It can hold even 2 GoPros with their cases... it built in a way that you can (and need) to put weight in the front in order to balance it. The big room inside the canopy allows you to move the battery to optimal position if you placed heavy FPV equipment in the front.
The EPP FPV web page recommends this motor
NTM Prop Drive Series 35-36A 1400Kv / 550W
but this motor mounts on the shaft side (see wires near shaft). You'll need to find a motor designed to be mounted on the opposite end to the shaft (wires opposite of shaft). There isn't enough room in the fuselage to mount a motor inside with the shaft poking through the plywood engine mount.
Am I missing something?
It would be handy if HK could sort all their motors by kv, Watts, Amps, mount end, etc.
I like the LiPo selection tool.
I have my NTM 36-42 1000kv mounted on the outside and it flies great! Just remember to do a Aileron/Rudder mix to make turns easier. Also keep speed/power up during slow turns with the wind at your wingtop. Hope I helped. If so give me the credit. Thanks!
Hobby King does not mention a motor that is impossible to use(because there are too many that wont fit). THE MOTOR MENTIONED IS THE ONE TO USE. OR go with a larger motor and less flight time. It all up to you. This size "Required.Motor: 35xx ~1400kV Brushless outrunner means a 35mm diameter motor that COULD BE (XX indicates your choice size) any length motor you wish. For example: a 36-36 1400kv motor means=36mm diameter(wide) with a 36mm(long) motor that spins with no propeller at 14000 rpms. Now you can understand what the numbers mean. SO in short, the 35xx motor is your choice of a 36mm through 50mm if they make such a huge motor!! I never bought/used one. Hope I helped!!!.

Your motor choices would be:35-36 1400kv or 36-42 1000kv, or NTM Prop Drive Series 35-30 1100kv / 380w which may not have enough power if you are carrying a heavy load of camera/battery gear, or NTM Prop Drive Series 35-30A 1400kv / 560w , or this is the motor I used:NTM Prop Drive 35-42 Series 1000KV / 700W. Which does use a lot of electricity. NOW UNLESS you are having a HEAVY load you don't need such a big motor like mine. Go with a smaller one like NTM Prop Drive Series 35-30A 1400kv / 560w unless its a heavy plane load use:NTM Prop Drive 35-42 Series 1000KV / 700W.
hello, I'm wanting to start in fpv, someone could help me choose the right accessories with the codes of the items. wanted to buy one like the fellow who posted the video below, it is possible to view these video in a station in the land eg a computer real-time, or just make video, someone could help
hello valdinei,i dont know how much experince you have With fpv,and how much you know about Electronic.
if you are a noob,,try a forum instead.
you will get help here,but the advice can be misleading.
make trheat about you want to buy a fpv plane,and start With fpv.one Place like that have People With more expertise then this Place.
the first i can say for you keep it simple,and start small.
this plane is not bad,but not maybe Your first fpv plane,as second is better.
one like bixler is better as first fpv plane.
than work you up too bigger fpv models(bigger fpv models crash bigger)
Been flying helicopters for a year or so, and decided to try a plane/fpv. Well, let me tell you building planes is nothing like building heli's. You have to measure/cut for most everything, as opposed to the simple "put bolt A in hole B and use nut C. Instructions were enough, but not great.
Some things leave me scratching my head a bit. Like why the tail servo holders are too small to fit HXT900's, which has to be the most popular 9g servo Hobbyking sells. I also wish they would have included something more rigid than the plastic tubing for the pushrod guides. Perhaps hollow carbon fiber tubes.
Well I set off to maiden, and after getting things balanced right and trimmed, it was in flyable condition. Having 40 acres, I decided to fly at home and managed to stall into a power line behind me. Wing detached and only minor damage (2 inch section of epp missing near wing attachment point).
It seems to fly a little quicker than I was anticipating, but this is my first plane, so it's a little exciting/nerve-racking for me anyways.

2 thumbs up!
I got this plane.. Tried to fly it once. Flyes well!
I made removable gear with floats or wheels.
Can i put pics here?
IMO - The best FPV plane out there right now. This thing is HUGE !!!

Depois de assistir e ler muito sobre este modelo eu resolvi comprar. Para minha surpresa os defeitos encontrados ha meses ainda nao foram corrigidos tais como aileron do lado direito ter seu corte menos profundo o que exige mais do servo se voce nao abrir rasgos ao londo dele e a barra de elasticos frontal que vem meio torta mas isso nao afeta em nada o desempenho. Por falar em desempenho, eu so nao dei 5 estrelas porque ele depois de equipado por incrível que pareça fica tão pesado que "falta asa", isso mesmo, depois de colocar uma lipo de 5000mA, um sistema completo da Eagletree, uma camera da Fatshark, um transmissor de 600mA 5.8Ghz, estabilizador FMA e receptor o brinquedo torna-se perigoso de soltar na mao, tem que dar muito impulso. Recomendo que usem o motor SK-3536-1400 (Turnigy AerodriveXXP 1400Kv / 550W) ao inves do Park480 como alguns reviewers recomendam, pois com o Park ele vai literalmente ficar estacionado!
