I used this one on mine, works well

I think all the lightweight fillers are pretty simular, same product but with different labels!

You can add a few drops of water or even pva glue to make it easier to spread!

Too low kv on that eflite 32. On 4s you need around 1200+ kv.

It is pretty low KV ( 770) , I still managed to hand launch and get 110kmh.
But will it cause problems , like the esc to catch on fire?. Which did happen., and I did have a separate ubec

Very nice flying. You should put a blade on the leading edge of that thing since you were low enough to cut the grass.

Yeah. That would be a badddd idea. You wouldn't be able to launch it without cutting yourself on those blades.

hey guys the manual says to use spray paint with flat or neon colors because of the solvents but what about water based acrilic paint like from michaels ? will the lam/3m77 not stick as well to the water based paint as well as the spray paint ?

Those paints will work great , just do a lite coat at first to test.
77 will be fine.

I have just ordered a ZII myself so I am looking forward to the build. I am scratching through the garage trying to find spare parts and have found a Turnigy SK3536 1400kv motor with a 40amp Hobbywing Pentium ESC. Would this motor/ESC combination be good for the ZII?? Am planning to use a 9x6 prop with it.

Could someone also recommend a good pusher folding prop supplier here in the UK?

Thanks.
