The Ritewing Website.

In the next day or so I will be adding some info about the Zephyr to the ritewingrc.com website.

The Zephyr will remain a cut to order kit still.

I've been thinking about getting a zephyr a lot lately, kind of hate putting wings on my twin star and stuffing the wires down into the fuse, have created shorts twice already in 10 flights.

Trappy has 60" zephyr, with nice amount of maH, but scary to launch.

blunt nose mod seems amazing, does that make it a 64" zephyr? or however long the standard center section is?

how would a 54" blunt nose zephyr perform? I want it to fit in my trunk easy.

Hey klique,

My motor mount from hobbyking doesn't fit onto the mounting plate that came with my zephyr. Did I get the wrong mount?

Drill out the mount in the wing to accept the hk mount.

well done!
was it the zephyr that did it?

a 19dbi+ yagi seem to be the go for long range, do you know of a shop that has them for 1.2ghz? ive only found a 13dbi for 1.2

That's awesome trappy. And only 500m above launch. Impressive!
