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 hope there are still not people waiting for this plane.... I ordered it months ago bout 3-4.. Waiting for about 3 months than cancelled ordered a new plane "one in stock" it's already arrived and assembled and flown and people are still wit if for this one.... HOBBY KING YOU NEED TO SPRT YOUR **** OUT! THIS IS PATHETIC CUSTOMER SERVICE.! Please get on here and explained to your loyal customer why your happy to take there money and hold on your back account for months and not even bother to give them there product in a respectable time..... So get off your ass and give these people there planes and some free running gear for there plane for the wait! My advice to anyone buying this plane is "DONT BUY IT" until they re stock it..... I e mailed them about this product and they told me the wait may be long to indefinate......... So I would not be handing them money and waiting.....
I find wheels Make it heavy ,tho doing it correct ,Like The New Idea Is Unusually to add wheal Only to the front center ,than a set of small side wheals Under each wing, Like a TALON MODEL> Use similar build change. made a tail drag skid. after that you will Get good results. I trust you can do the up-graid. I use the whole Plane for bits to Build a different shape ,like duel tail FPV using wing and 2 body lengths to do tail / like the SkyHunter FPV UAV Aircraft Platform .
today I tested My Custom Of this Plane, Using 2 of this Plane . I took both tail booms and Mounted to each side Of he wing. Its than duel Tail together with large Elevator / Heaps better Handling . well worth 2 of the planes to Make 1 really Mad Plane, / I would Like to show yo some How. i try post a pic / holds www.link with motor 3442 10x5 prop 45 amp. No wheals . Is Best as Glide In,, NO WHEALS Needed truly.. it only makes It weighty,, use Only battery as CG. and a Little Lead . tested with 2x2600mah hard case batterys, about 900 grams in front ,,great FPV,,
Over 3 years Now mine has last ,. i use it as very reliable wing alone, It will be use Many times On many planes, 3 planes now. and Now a custom duel tail. Make it like I did . use 2 boom rods , Make a tail, look to see the other duel tail models in HK is 1.
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.

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!
