HK Skyfun FPV

I bought an HK Skyfun and I've set it up with a Spektrum AR400 rx, metal gear servos, a Turnigy 2826-6 2200kv motor, Turnigy 40amp Plush ESC, 6x4 APC prop, 3S 2200mah 45C Nanotech, and ImmersionRC 5.8ghz FPV.  I've wanted to do this project for nearly a year and I finally got around to it. 

I removed all the Skyfun decals.  Most of them were pealing off already, lol.  Then I added 3 strips of carbon fiber to the belly of the plane and glued them in place.  Then I covered the plane with colored packing tape for visibility, a bit of water proofing, and the packing tape does add a bit of strength and surely helps with aerodynamics because of the smoothness of the tape.

I had the maiden flight, and two additional line of sight flights, the other day.  I think this plane may be quicker than I thought it would be, lol.  I had to lower the dual rates to 80% on the elevons and 35% expo.  I'm going to do a few more LOS flights because I'd like to make real sure that the plane is as trimmed as possible before I start flying it FPV....but I think this plane is going to be a riot with the goggles on.
Lol, these fighter jets are just as fast as mini quad if not faster, make sure you don't fly too far out its 5.8Ghz you are using for FPV after all hehe Big Grin keep us updated please
A better FPV'er than LOS'er :) -- My Fleet
Yeah, I've seen other Skyfun FPV videos and they looked fast. I was surprised with my LOS testing. I think the Skyfun, with my motor/prop combination, is faster than I thought it would be, lol. Like I said, above, I'm going to do a few more LOS test flights to try to smooth things out as much as I feel I can...then I'll get the goggles on.

I'm a member of a flying club. They have a pretty good sized lot of land but I'm sure that I can fly FPV within the boundaries of the club and have no issues with the 5.8ghz. I'll surely share some flight video when I can decide how to mount my Mobius.
