In this post I’ll be reviewing the Eachine Micro Skyhunter. This is an EPO foam airplane with a 780mm wingspan. It comes PNP (plug-n-play), meaning that it contains the airframe, power system and FPV system (there is a variant without it as well) and requires minimal assembly. This is my first airplane, since the scratch builds I attempted before this were complete failures. A lot of people say this is not a suitable plane for beginners, as it is fast, does not have self-correcting tendencies, and doesn’t have a rudder. I still wanted to find out for myself though, and my main aim is too determine whether this is a good option for mini quad pilots who want to fly something different (and may be bored by trainer planes). This is very similar to the ReadyMadeRC Nano Skyhunter, probably coming from the same factory, though it uses a different material (EPO instead of EPP). What interested me most about this plane is the compact size and the fact that it uses common mini quad parts, meaning that if you’re a mini quad pilot who wants to fly this, you probably have the right size of LiPo, as well as better motors you can put on it.
Here is a quick disclaimer (inspired by SoloProFan on RCGroups) before we get to the review itself.
