Does size matter?
Well, we don’t know either, but the Hobbyking™ Skipper just got bigger!
Just like its smaller sibling, the Skipper XL is capable of operating from almost any surface including water, ice, snow, grass and more, making it an incredibly versatile model. With its super low wing loading and high performance brushless power system the Skipper XL is an absolute blast to fly!
The installed power system (PNF version) provides more than enough power for water or grass take-offs and provides unlimited vertical performance. Large control surfaces give great control authority and make for a wide flight envelope.
Molded from ultra-tough EPO foam, the model is lightweight and durable. The wing halves are joined through the fuselage with twin carbon fiber spars providing excellent rigidity. The fuselage of the Skipper has a flat bottom for easy take-offs from any surface and features a hydrodynamic step to allow for easy water handling.
A large, removable cockpit cover gives fantastic access to the forward compartment for batteries etc and has a transparent canopy for a semi-scale appearance. This cockpit cover can be replaced by an alternative, custom designed plywood FPV equipment platform (see related items) to quickly transform your Skipper XL into an all-terrain FPV vehicle.
Access hatches are also provided mid-fuselage and in the motor nacelle for easy installation and maintenance.
The Skipper XL is available in “Plug and Fly” and kit form allowing you get into the air as quickly as possible, or to cutomize your set-up to your own requirements.
