SkySword 990 from HobbyKing


You’ll slice through the sky with this brilliantly colored SkySword. The streamlined looks and elegant lines show that this plane is built for speed. It comes with a 70mm 12-blade EDF fan to provide that realistic jet sound.

With the PNF version, all the hard work is done with the powerplant already fitted and ready to go. The tricycle retracting undercarriage and all servos are completely installed with easy connect plugs for installing the wings. All decals have been fitted. Just fit the top of the “T” tail and install a receiver and battery and you will be ready to fly in no time.

The three bright LED lights make for easy orientation when coming in for a smooth landing. There are working flaps to help with takeoffs and landings at the right speed. Extra air inlets for the battery hatch keeps the battery temperature down for maximizing flying time. The nose comes off for easier and safer transportation.

The SkySword is a fantastic flyer with extreme performance and excellent agility to provide a graceful display in the air.

• High Efficient 12 blade EDF unit with realistic turbine-like sound
• Full electronic retractable landing gear with working oleo struts 
• Big powerful flaps for slow landings
