As the title suggests, post anything and everything about this exciting up and coming brand!

My V3 ARS 102" arrived today and I must say that I am extremely impressed with the entire ARF. The packaging was excellent and so far from my inspections the fit and finish in near flawless. Looking forward to the assembly and maiden.
Would love to see and hear about all the other Sky Wing offerings, post away!

SupaTim at NWRC hooked me up, he likes to pallet them like this now and I will say it arrived without a mark on it.

Cowl is built well and light!

Re: Sky Wing Owners Thread

Hardware pac actaully seems highly useable, I cannot say that with a couple of my last ARF's, won't mention any names....

The magnetic canopy latch, wing attachments and stab connections are extremly slick...

Re: Sky Wing Owners Thread

Welcome to the fold, I own 3 of them now.
We just did an unboxing of my newest one. The first time I flew the skywing 105" edge 540, I sold all my other planes and replaced them all with Skywing. You will love the way they fly.

Re: Sky Wing Owners Thread

You'll only need 1.75" arms for the ailerons and 38degrees throw. That's enough for super fast rifle rolls.

2" for elevator
1.75" for rudder
