    looks like a shameless copy of alex's Spectre, except they stuffed up one of the the main features of it...swept the wings back instead of foreward.

    on the website, it says its a "endurance" plane (4s-20000mah+, and 90minutes flights??)
    Thats one heavy plane!

    It does look like a "Specter"

    Just looks like a fairly generic twin boom design to me...

    Looks good, a nice alternative to the X8.

    same here, can't see the comparison to the specter... Just a regular twin boom configuration.
    Really like the concept, looking forward how it performs!

    This looks like it has good potential. I too thought of the Specter when I saw it, but i don't think its much of a copy. It looks similar, but then again so do a lot of airplanes. Not sure the wingspan of Alex's design, but I'm pretty sure this this is MUCH bigger!

    Specter is a bit smaller, and minimum FLight Lipo size for SkyHunter is 4s-5000mah+.
    I think Specter balances great with 3s-2600mah?

    This model is molded. Sure the share some design ideas but the Spectre share a lot off its design ideas from other twin boom aircrafts. What are you really discussing?

    Isn't it great that we get more models to chose from?

    No rudder. This made sense for Alex's Spectre, but a endurance flier should have a rudder.
