KQ scheme (White, Blue, Green)​


Note that the color scheme is now a bit different with a lighter blue than pictured above.

Not sure about all of you guys, but with Covid19 lurking around destroying our travel plans, vacations, and mental health... I've been building airplanes and using the money I could have spent on a beach somewhere to enjoy a new airframe or two. . . I spoiled myself!

Truth be told I got this at the end of July but have been finishing other projects before getting into it and gathering all my goodies in the process.

First things first. Hitting everything over with an iron.

230-240F the metalic covering sticks
250F it pulls and the white backing will show around the edges.
260F bad things happen. Be very careful and don’t use a heat gun. Low temp is your friend.
I had a hard time with the sock, so it came off.

Before and after tacking down the trim better. I will say that they use dull blades too often. Pretty jagged here and there.

Skywing likes to put little arrows where something is hiding... like an easy scavenger hunt. In this case it's where to open up the rudder servo bay.

Here are a few inside pics.

Gotta day that this whole carbon/fiber/laminate is 100% eye candy.


check our all the powerplant options etched into the firewall. Even the new DLE65! I was considering it over the GP76, but I don’t like to be a test pilot for new engines... although I hear the DLE130 is a splendid engine.

And yes, they do provide some stickas! 6B149660-0423-4D84-BCD1-A9679DD82C43.jpeg

Looks like a beautiful plane. Like everything about it and it is well equipped. Did not mess around when you were getting all the extras. Yes I will be following with interest.
