This is the Maiden of the HK Mini Skywalker. When buying my son's Mini Red Arrow EDF for his birthday, it seemed only fair that I add an extra model to the Shopping Cart for me
In any case when I first purchased the FatShark Predators, I also got the 5.8ghz vTX and small FatShark Camera, so I wanted a model to put them on. The Mini Skywalker seemed like the right choice. The idea being to fly FPV, I could just have the Goggles, Model and the er9x. I small package that you could always throw in the car without the hassle of carting around your Ground Station etc Basically a Fun Little FPV Model
This video is of the maiden flight. I think I was way too confident, since I decided I was special and only needed 0.5 mistakes height to trim it (look at the 57 second mark). I caught it in time, but it could have easily hit the deck. After committing to painting it, I would have been pretty annoyed if I broke or scratched it due to my own stupidity.
Their is a thread I that I started on this build in the forum here:
List of all parts used is in the video description. If you have a look at the 3 low passes I did for the camera, I brought it in close and low enough for Thomas to video it and kept the speed down, yet it tracked perfectly and I felt in 100% control. This is one Top Little Model.
I may have been a little harsh on the FatShark Camera which could have been due to the low light since we were flying late after Thomas finished school. I will try the Fatshark Camera out again during the middle of the day to see how it goes.
Hope you find this useful
