Skywalker X-8 FPV / UAV Flying Wing 2120mm

Skywalker X-8 FPV / UAV Flying Wing 2120mm
Skywalker X-8 FPV / UAV Flying Wing 2120mm

This is the X-8 FPV wing from Skywalker Technolog,. The BIG FPV wing!
The X-8 has been specifically designed for FPV and UAV, customised for F-Tek stabiliser systems.

An awesome looking and fantastic flying FPV / UAV platform, moulded out of EPO so it's nearly indestructible!

This model offers a huge amount of under canopy space, excellent glide performance, fast low power cruise speeds in the region of 80-90 kph.
 
The airframe was designed from the outset to take FPV and other video devices, the equipment bays have been laid out to suit FPV / UAV applications, there is a camera mount in the nose and there's a forward oblique mount to suit a Gopro. Transporting the airframe is easy, both the wing panels and the vertical stabs are bolt on affairs.

Nice design points are the moulded in wing reflex, removable vertical stabilisers, ventral launching grips, nose camera bay, canopy retained via strong magnets , moulded battery and FPV trays and 2 through fuselage spars - plus a moulded in spar in each wing panel.
 
It's an impressive airframe that spans 2120mm and has a rather imposing silhouette!

I ordered the x-8 and the body is warped and does not fit together without being stressed to the point that when glued, it will start to seperate and distort. I have already submitted the report/pictures to HK supporting my claim for replacement of the main body. Currently waiting about 1,5 weeks for a response. let you know how customer service treats me.

Hi. Mine come to my home yesterday. I has the great surprise that it comes with the plastic orange attachments that lets you remove the wings, not the balsa wood shown on the images. target=_blank> It's the secont time I get more than expected. Firs was with the Fx-61 wich was the newer version with detachable wings.

Anyone know where to get parts for this bird? I need the hatch cover, which flew off during flight. Hobbyking does not appear to have a spares list on the website, and CS says they don't have them. Apparently they resell this unit. Made in China? Somebody has to know where to get spares.

Looks cool and carries and lot. Quality is bad and foam is bent and needs to be heated and bent back. Also it stalls really easy if you try turning sharp.
