HobbyKing® ™ Skipper All Terrain Airplane EPO 700mm (PNF)

HobbyKing® ™ Skipper All Terrain Airplane EPO 700mm (PNF)
HobbyKing® ™ Skipper All Terrain Airplane EPO 700mm (PNF)

Quite possibly the most fun plane ever...the HobbyKing® ™ Skipper!

Capable of taking off from and landing on just about any surface including water, ice, snow, grass and more, the Skipper is a truly versatile model. Add to that its super low wing loading and high performance brushless power system and you've got yourself a model that is an absolute blast to fly!

The pre-installed 40A brushless power system provides tons of power, just what you need for getting off of the water or grass take-offs. This abundance of power adds to the fun factor in the air, providing unlimited vertical performance. The large control surfaces allow for a fast roll rate and excellent elevator response making aerobatic flight a big part of the Skipper's wide flight envelope.  

Constructed from low-density EPO foam, this model is very lightweight yet maintains a high level of durability. The wing halves are joined with twin carbon fiber spars providing excellent rigidity. The fuselage of the Skipper is moulded in a "flying boat" shape allowing it to easily take off, land and cruise on the water. This smooth, low-drag design also lends itself very well to use on snow and grass.

The Skipper comes in "Plug and Fly" form meaning that the brushless power system and all servos are pre-installed, you will simply need to add your own 4CH radio system and 3S lipoly battery. Assembly is a breeze requiring gluing of the horizontal stabilizer only. You can have the Skipper built and ready for flight in as little as 15 minutes.

Anyone used 2200mah battery for this plane ? Too big ? Head heavy ? CG off ?

Yes I have, you just need to have the battery as far back in the battery compartment as possible to keep the c of g somewhere close to where it should be and then it flies great.

ESC? How many amp ESC? can it handle 4S lipo? I tried 3S 2250mAh lipo, works good, longer flight

Came today in perfect condition, took me 15 min to put it together, only easy gluing needed. Flies great of grass, gonna try it out in water tomorrow. Do think that the motor could be a little stronger, no chance going unlimited vertical. Will surely try changing the motor in the future. But good for now. Hope H.K do make it as a Kit as well and maybe make a spare-part list for it.

used a 1000 ma batt orange Rx
First batt, did some taxi on the lawn no problems
second batt hit the throt and it was in the air in about 20 feet ( 7 metes)
I made the flight a little short since I was on my lawn and not at the field. Bringing it for a landing kept a little power on to keep the nose up
Will be doing more tests later in the week with bigger batts and more space.
Tip to protect the bottom was trim tape you use on a car. I used the silver but it come in a role and is real sticky backing. Trimmed it about 1 1/2 in ( 30 mm ) wide and not a mark on the bottom from the grass.
Will post more after next test

2nd flight
got to the field today and was it fun. Again used my 1000/1300 ma batts and it was amazing fun to fly. I had no problem with it going straight up like a rocket and landing was real easy as well. The grass was wet and long so I had trouble lifting off with a 1600ma batt. I am sure it would be no problem on water or snow. I am going to buy another one of these planes and use it or give it as a present.

Great plane, though not for beginners. It flies nice and fast. I did not test it on water and I can't wait to test it on snow! It's a pity there is no stock in any warehouse though.
