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!

Nobody can help you in few words. Buy some aeromodeling books and reed.

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.
