1500mm Eaglewing Skywalker Cheap FPV Setup Maiden

Took the Skywalker Eaglewing 1500mm out for a maiden flight today. After reading a lot of terrible reviews about this plane i was somewhat worried but this thing glides amazingly in the video you can see with no motor running i could almost get it to stand still. The video is shaky because it is pretty windy this flight is just to test the center of gravity which i’ve set as 1/3 of the wing from the leading edge but i think that it needs more weight. When you first rev it the nose does dip until the air speed increase’s  then she floats really well, watch the video and see the landing it won’t go down.

    IS THIS A EAGLEWING ? DID YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THE INCIDENCE, OR DO ANYTHING TO CHANGE THE WING ANGLES OF ATTACK OR THE MOTOR ANGLE TO MAKE IT FLY? GEOFF

      Yes it is the Eaglewing, I didn’t change any of the angles (motor mount or angle of attack). One thing about this plane is it is quite hard to launch. To launch you need quite high rpm and throw at about 35° then increase revs a little but not too much otherwise this bird will DIVE. Once its flying this plane is really awesome way better than AXN Floater, definitely my favorite FPV plane.
