Darkwing FPV Drone 1727mm Composite (ARF)

The H-King Darkwing is a huge composite flying wing designed specifically for FPV, with it's sleek design and menacing lines, this is one fantastic looking model!

The central fuselage section and winglets are made from sturdy fiberglass, while the wing is sheeted, traditional construction balsa for durability. Despite it's size, the Darkwing is practical with both wings being plug in, this model can be field assembled in minutes and is easy to transport. Being a delta, it is of course a simple 2 servo affair, there is a massive amount of space in under the large canopy for Lipoly's and FPV equipment, the motor mount is also very substantial, obviously motor choice will depend on payload. The Darkwing has no undercarriage and will require a launch ramp, alternatively, conversion to fixed or even retracting undercarriage will be reasonably simple for the experienced modeller.

The Darkwing will undoubtedly make for a fantastic sport flying model courtesy of it's efficient and sleek aerodynamic design, but at it's heart, this is a futuristic looking FPV platform that features a high payload capability and has excellent stall & glide characteristics. The sheer size and menacing lines of the Darkwing will cause jaws to drop wherever you fly, this is one radical looking model that is perfect for the high tech world of FPV.

I fitted my Drone with twin Leopard EDF jet engines. It looks great and flies great. I also fitted it with a fixed tail to eliminate flat spins.

there seems to be some confusion as to where the C/G (centre of gravity) or balance point should be on this aeroplane. the quoted 42 CM is how far back from the front of the body, this is easier to measure back from where the front edge of the wing meets the fuselage. this distance is 14 CM, put a small piece of tape at this place on each wing and balance on your fingertips it should be OK to test glide if the plane balances here. When it glides OK you can go for powered flying, knowing that when you are ready to land it will glide in fine. A place with long grass is a good place to test glide your aeroplane.

Are there stickers on it, or is it painted that way? I would like an all-black version I could decorate myself...
 geemannz 24 points
It looks like stickers, but in the case that it is painted, you could just get some shiny black shrink film and put it over top?

They are stickers that you can peel off. I did it on mine

Como norma para e.l que quiera saber, en todas las alas deltas el CG (centro de gravedad) se encuentra a 1/3 del borde trasero. NUNCA DELANTERO como he oido algunas respuestas

This Darkwing flies really well, it is really stable and the speed was ok. I used 4cell 5000mah with motor 950kw and a 12/6 prop. However the color black isn’t my first choice for this airplane, in a distance it gets difficult to see so I crashed mine. Good airplanes just don’t fly long way from the starting point. Now I ordered the new x8 (white)

For the only person that I actually have seen fling this plane, It is a pain to take off the ground! if you don't have a body" to tow your plane, The expenses of making a launch ramp have to be added to this model! but may be the mos annoying thing is the the cockpit cover, It is hard to keep it from falling down out of the plane and the fact that is not clear make at least for me a very hard decision to put the money on to it! I hope that they make the proper adjustments! like the option ready, of landing gear. Because there are lots of people like me that constantly are looking for a better platform for our UAV's, and all those styrofoam planes eventually wear out! living use with almost nothing! Hey I have an X8 from sky walker! and if your don't take the time to cover it either on fiberglass or in some kind of Vinyl tape! your will have a pile of garbage on not time! so please HB keep in mind people like us!

I fitted my drone with twin Leopard EDF jet engines. It looks great, flies great and sounds great. I also gave it a fixed tail to eliminate flat spins and fixed landing gear for easy take offs and landings.
