41Km flight—Furthest distance from home: 10km
7,849mAh used


1: How much did the entire setup cost?
A: Around £1,500 – £1,700. The expensive components are the googles, radio transmitter, UHF system, Antenna tracker and the GoPro.

2: How did you make the Skywalker grey?
A: I used multi purpose grey primer spray paint from my local DIY store. No prep was needed and it took 3 coats I think. Its easy to damage the paint work so laminating it afterwards probably would have been a good idea.

3: What is the all up weight (AUW)?
A: Around 2.8kg with 10,000mAh on board.
