Sky Eye from HobbyKing

Details

here's a school of thought that places great value on function over form when it comes to aesthetics, and it has to be said that the Sky Eye here would probably please that school immensely!
However, what it lacks in terms of eye-candy, it more than compensates for in out-and-out practicality.

With its 2 capacious, vertically stacked equipment bays, high mounted pusher motor, large (44dm2) shoulder mounted wing and simple boom mounted tail surfaces, the Sky Eye  oozes functionality from every pore.

The unique vertical equipment bay arrangement allows you to separate your video, FPV and avionics equipment from the battery compartment by housing all of the cameras and video transmission/recording equipment together with the R/C gear and any stabilization or autopilot you choose to fit in the upper section with its transparent plastic viewing dome, while the lower section has ample room for any batteries that you might foreseeably need to use, adding stability and keeping preventing them damaging your valuable electronics in the event of an unscheduled arrival.

Both the high mounted pusher motor and the low-slung, lightweight carbon fiber tail boom are well proven and highly practical arrangements for this type of model, particularly where operating conditions are not ideal, and the shoulder mounted wing makes launching the model a breeze too.

Structurally, the Sky Eye is familiar territory with carbon fiber reinforced EPO flying surfaces and EPO with a plywood substructure for the fuselage, making assembly quick and straightforward and requiring the minimum of tools.
To finish theSky Eye, you'll need a minimum of 4 channel RC gear, 2 extra 9g servos if you want to use the optional flaps and a range of suitable adhesives.

Features:
• ARF format with fast assembly
• Tough EPO/carbon fiber/ply construction
• Laser cut ply parts
• Large equipment bays
• Clear forward viewing dome
• High lift wing section
• Optional flaps
• Large access hatches
• Boom mounted VTX platform
• Carbon fiber boom and wing joiner
• Big 44dm2 (680 sq in) wing area
• Wide mission capability
