Lots Of Fun
I have a giant scale version of this plane, and thought I would like a smaller "foamie" to throw in the truck to just have some fun with. I wasn't disappointed. Fast to put together, plus it is a well made plane. The first flight was in winds gusting to 9-10 mph, but it was still easy to trim out and it was really fun flying into the wind and watching it just fly in one spot when I throttled back. I read complaints about the landing gear but I see no problems with it if not abused. I did remove the wheel pants because where I fly is pretty rough and that probably helped a lot. I may also go to a slightly larger wheel to help out on our rough runway. I was surprised to get it so quickly, especially since it was shipped clear across the country. Fast to put together, well made, looks great in the air, although I have to admit I took the decals off. I would recommend being careful about the CG, and being a little nose heavy doesn't hurt it, but beware tail heavy planes! I'm flying the larger battery and get about 10-11 minutes flight time, with more than ample power for some aerobatic flying time as well as just lazying around in the sky.. Thanks Motion RC....I'll be back.
Love it. Entry level Sport Plane
I fly this with and Admial RX with a gyro because im just moving out of high wing aircraft. I set the dual rates at 55/100 and its still very snappy on low rate. Definetly an intermediate plane. It will fly just slow enough to be manageable for a beginner but you still have to be quick but precise eith the sticks. I took off from asphalt and it taxis very squirly and torque rolls heard left so be ready to pull up and right aleron eith some right rudder as well. The landing gear tore out on me when i went off the side of the paved runway on takeoff. The braces arei brittle plastic and wont take much abuse. As far as the rest of the plane its 5 stars. Nice finish, good electronics and hardware and all control surfaces ave ABS mechanical hinges. The air frame itself is bulletproof. It took a couple hard 75 degree poundings and there was not even a hint of damage. I did have one accident that was quite eye opening. Since I have no gear I hand toss and land in a nice cushy medow. My last hand toss got away from me and it circled around hard left and came right at me. Fight or flight took over and with the split second I had to react, i turned away and ducked. The plane slamed into the back of my knee. I have a couple good gashes and a huge bruise. It felt like I got hit wiith a baseball bat. Dont ever underestimate one of these little foamies. Now I can say I survived a plane crash and walked away with only minor injuries. I was very lucky. That accident broke the prop and spinner and bent the motor shaft and the X mount but no damage to anything else. So while pricing the new motor I see replacemts parts. All the foam for $80.00 or a whole new plane for $109.00 . I bought a new motor for my wreck and a whole second plane pnp. Definetly an under priced sleeper. Have fun with the little speedster!
Spacewalker 44” by Freewing
This is a great looking scale example of the Spacewalker. It flys to scale beautiful and performs graceful aerobatics. Touch-and-goes are a blast to do in a close landing pattern!!!
I installed bigger wheels to land on grass
Dream come true
I have wished for this plane for long time. I found it at MotionRC with a computer search. Within a week it was in my shop. All parts and pieces seem to be there. I plan to cover all the foam parts and pieces with clear laminating film before assembly. Much caressing and dreaming to take place. Then I will have a slick little plane for next spring! Welllll, maybe early this winter.
Get value for the price. Only negative is I fly off grass needed larger wheels. No big deal to me.
Amending My Review
I must apologize to all for my negative review on the Spacewalker. It was the radio system I was using that was causing the problems. I switched to my spectrum radio and the plane suddenly had considerably more power and stability. Next time I wonÂ´t use a cheap radio. The reason I donÂ´t like the spectrum receiver on FMS and Freewing planes is the ailerons have to be reversed. This means every time I fly any of my E-flight planes I have to watch to be sure I reverse the ailerons. This should be automatic, but when you have 14 or 15 airplanes sometimes you get a little careless with pre-flight.
Under powered and unstable
I have flown the Spacewalker a couple of times and find it under powered and unstable. For a plane that size it should not need to have an AS3X receiver. I have a 800 mm T38 that flies like a dream without AS3X.
