Carbon Strong, Electric
The Skywalker XL, Electric is a five-meter high performance "big brother" to the Skywalker (3.8m). A one-meter center section added to the wing accomplishes this modification. It also features a new molded C/F fuselage. The Skywalker XL was developed primarily to meet the specifications and class performance needs of Sport Class GPS Triangle racing, an electric power event. However, it comes from the Czech factory with a sailplane nose. Stock from the box, it is a high performance, unlimited class AMA thermal duration or F3J sailplane.
