You need to do a lot of sparkling and sanding if you want to use vinyl and not have a lot of imperfections. It's a lot of work, but looks great if you're willing to put in the time. Unfortunately, it gets ruined on your first bad launch or landing and makes repairs difficult as it's hard to repair and have it look as nice. Id just do a good job with paint and go from there. Took me longer to do my vinyl than it took to build my Zii.

I just flew 7.1 miles/11.5km on Monday which is my best so far for the Z2. I used 3400mah to fly out and back; total for the flight was 4090mah for 21 minutes covering 16.8 miles in all. I had to engage RTH while flying over some powerlines about 4.5 miles out coming home due to video dropping out; RTH flew for one mile and video returned. It's moments like this I am glad the Vector was installed and working properly. I am flying with 200mW 1.3Vtx and crosshair; hope to try for 10 miles with the pepperbox later this spring. Z2 is a sweet ride.

Thanks Gharddog, I wanted to test out the range of the 200mW and Z2. My Z3 has the same setup and video dropped out at the same location the flight prior to the Z2. I kinda figured the video was going to go out on the Z2; just wanted to see if the video dropping was my GS or Vtx. Happy flying.

Hey guys
I need some help with my zephyr 2 , Iam using 105 apc prop, a 6s 4000 that I made 2, 3s 4000 out of with the tbs motor not 100% sure because that and the wing was given to me from a friend who gave up on it a demolished it on its maiden.So after p3icing it and gluing it back together it looks new again. My cg is around 9 3/4 from the nose , after a few attempts I got it to fly good straight but as soon as i give it left or right alerion it does a flip and death spiral to the ground can't figure out what the hell Iam doing wrong , any info would be great thanx. Iam not really a plane guy been flying helis and qauds for the past 4 years just want to get this rig set up for fpv once I can get I flying lol
