Hey guys, I just uploaded a new video of the SpeedWing 250 MK II to the website.

This one is powered by a Feigao 3125kv 30T 20mm short can motor spinning a GWS 4x4 prop and using 3s 1320's. The amp draw is just under 10A static, so I'm using a ThunderBird 9 ESC.

This is a very nice flying, fast setup on the cheap ($25 for motor, $25 for speed control). You can use 3s 800's for even lighter wing loading and cheaper battery setup.

This was shot at my local club field in Greeley, CO, elevation 5,000 ft. It was pretty windy that day, but the SpeedWing 250 MK II didn't mind at all

Well, here's the video: http://www.speedwing.net/wimpy/waspP...defined&wH=NaN

I've now redesigned the Mini SpeedWing 250 and am now selling it as the SpeedWing 250 MK II. The new design now has all radio gear pockets precut using a 4 axis CNC Mill. This greatly speeds up assembly time and makes for a very clean build.

The SpeedWing 250 MK II also uses carbon flats for full length spars and trailing edge, which makes the wing extremely strong and flex proof as well as enhancing the flight ability. The new spar system is also very easy to install (about 30 minutes total).

The motor mount has been redesigned and beefed up. The motor mount is now able to accept any 20mm brushless motor as well as use the included Johnson 250 motor.

Lastly, each SpeedWing 250 MK II kit comes with precut vinyl decals!

These new features put SpeedWing 250 MK II in a class of its own. The wing is easily assembled in only a couple of hours and is fully capable of 100+ m.p.h. flights using a 20 mm brushless motor with the stock build (I have one flying at 100 m.p.h. using a 30T 20mm Fiegao motor while only pulling 10A). The included brushed motor flies the SpeedWing 250 MK II at 70 m.p.h.
