Hobby King Mini Skywalker - FPV Build
Thomas and I are in the process of building a Hobby King Mini Skywalker FPV model. Our intention is to use it with just the FatShark Predator Goggles and no ground station at all. This is a small model that you can have with you in the car and if you find somewhere nice to fly, throw on the goggles and up you go. . . . well that's the plan. I'm going to be using the standard 100mw system that came with the predators.
In any case wondering if anyone is interested in me doing a build log here and showing the progress etc. If there is interest I'll post regular updates.
Picture below shows the model outside of the box, I've removed all the stickers and I'm in the process of airbrushing it now.
Never catch a multirotor
Remember this one ?
Good to hear that you started already.
I will start soon as well ..
Looking forward to your build !
Yes I do!!! I can't wait to get this little beast going. Mind you I haven't decided if I want an OSD in it or not. I have a spare Remzibi which I may put in. The colouring is my son's idea as he wants it too look like a military uav, should be interesting to see how it looks tomorrow
Are you going to start a thread on your? If you like I'm more than happy to have your progress on this thread . . I'm sure we will learn from each other
Go the OSD. Very handy to have.
It's over 5000!
OK, I'm super interested! Bring me some popcorn too!
I usually dream of having a big SkyWalker with autopilot - for AP and aerial terrain mapping.

When you are ok with it yes, I'd love to include my build here! Will take some time for my input as I'm still deep into the multi rotors today (DJI NAZA). Looking forward to share ideas !! Thanks..

OK its Thursday Morning here . . so hopefully I get time to do the Camo on this little bird.
Burg, please include your pics and updates here to, I have no problem at all and it will at least save us jumping from one thread to another. Like yourself I don't want the added weight of the Remzibi and the GPS in this little bird, but its going to have just as much range as my Bixler, so my only concern is getting lost. If I can get it all in without much in the way of compromising the aircraft then I may go down the path of OSD.
More updates to come shortly
