Ritewing TL-42 Old School Is back In Black

So i was poking around and found CK has listed an Old school favorite of mine on the site again at a a time when the economy is tanking every where it is Nice to see and Original Still going strong.

CK has out done himself on this wing... You cant beat this deal
The TL line of ritewing wings is one of the oldest and most thought out wing plan forms This is the wing for the beginner to the intermediate ritewing pilot.

I will defiantly have another..

Ritewing Store
http://ritewingrc.com/store/index.php

I will post up some video of my old TL40 (Both the bad and the Good Days)

Thanks CK for getting the smaller TL's back in the fold..

40 Inch TL 12/17/2005 (3 min 1 sec)(3 min 1 sec)

Not my favorite video but a good one... I will have to find Bad Day and the other 2 faster well played videos ..

Adam if you have any thing from you tl40 post it up here..

I agree Paul,alot of Tl's were sold over the years and people always ask if I will cut them again.
So why not!
This one is new and improved version , with a few slight mods.

Sound good, You will love this wing .It is easier to build ,super fun to fly and just a great all around wing for whatever you want to do with it.


3s 4s 5s 6s it will do it all,let me know if you need any drivetrain help.

I put the TL 42 for sale because it is the perfect all around versitle fun machine.
Its alot like its brother the TL 50 but will cover some ground like the Demon will too.

Grum says this 42'' has never ben built,well hee's wrong there too.
It has ben done in 24 30 36 38 40 41 42 44 45 48 50 52 54 58 60 inch sizes.



But what does he know.

Like Sycs says its more about the fun at the field,90% of you guys are not in a race and wont be sticking 6s in whole lot of anything .

If I was in a race I would have put my Demon 42'' up for sale.
I am not in a race and really dont care

Paul I watched that vid way back when and laughed my arse off.
Watched it today and did the same.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who had similar learning curves with the first rite wing.
All I can say about this boondogle is Ck's customer service is outstanding.
I called him on his way back from seff while he was on the roadand talked about the newIYF44.
Even customers of Chris give customer service Thks Paul and Adam.
Iv'e never owned one of grummans wings so I can't compare but that being said Ritewings make a fantastic product with outstanding support.

Robert there is no need to compare,just have fun.
Buy one of grums its all good.
One of our unbiased Ausie slackers who built this wing has both a sluge and some Ritewings and he built it to look like a Demon ,he used my winglets and looks like my single piece cnc motor mount along with a very comon ritewing covering pattern for his build.

Now I am flattered,that grum posted a vid of his sluge dressed like a Demon,thats just not rite

To each his own.

Now here is some of my builds from the past.
Eye candy for you guys needing covering color and pattern suggestions for you new TL42.
