    Reptile S800 SKY SHADOW

    I've just ordered this wing from Banggood. It would have been wrong not to at the price!

    https://www.banggood.com/S800-820mm-...p-1108279.html

    I have to say I'm quite looking forward to it, as it will be my first attempt at a fixed wing aircraft since I built a control line model about 30 years ago!

    I purchased the basic kit with no electronics, as I like to make things my own, and see if I succeed or fail miserably.

    I'll add the list of electronics I'll be using once I start the build.

    The S800 kit arrived today.
    I should probably have gone for the ARF version but I have most of the bits here to build it.

    I'm going to go 4S with it and I'll be fitting an Emax RS2205s 2300KV motor.

    For the flight controller I'll be using an OpenPilot CC3D Evo

    I'm not sure about the FPV gear yet but I have a few camera and transmitters so I'll see what fits.

    After receiving a kit with damaged wings, and waiting for replacements, I've just about finished building this.
    Unfortunately I've also lost the video footage of the build, because my phone decided to depart from this world during the recording session.
    I'll get it finished tomorrow and post up some video and some thoughts.
    Cheers
