As I purchased a Skywalker from Fpvflying I think it is appropriate to write something about this as well.
There is a huge thread with endless resources at RCGroups.com
My intentions with this aeroplane is to complement Tricopters/Quadcopters for aerial photo and FPV-flying.
It is a stable platform with a pushing propeller so you get a clear unobstructed view in the camera. It has a huge compartment for your equipment.
