Well some of my issues are my used lrs radio, trim stck full right at 850ft on my Super Skysurfer so that may be why the EagleTree was acting up on the Z.
At least the SSS has small surfaces.

nice video! I need to start flyng mine at WOT a lot more like that.

I also use a big white 2010 Tundra like that for my 'rolling hangar.' 8 ft bed fits lot of big planes, but really it makes for an easy to spot landmark for finding 'home' from the air ha!

I never fly WOT. Most of the time I'm at around 15 amps and that puts me at 50-55mph. That seems to be the best cruising speed for me. A couple times in the video I sped up the action to keep the boring parts down.

55mph is pretty much WOT on my Zeph, but consuming more like 20-25A. Yeah I know, I need to go to 4S some day. I have gotten too used to cruising at 25mph

Man, i had a heck of a day yesterday. Was at the San Diego 1st annual fpv meet in Carlsbad. Had a bunch of models flying and was switching through em. I forgot to switch from a quad to the zeph and i have no idea how, but it flew, thank god. the first shot is it leaving my hands. So i got it trimmed out finally and flew with no expo, got a mile out over the pacific ocean when something got turned on around me and just shut down my video feed. yea, mile out over the pacific. At the time i wasn't sure what was up and had my spotter switch antennas, didn't really help anything but every once in a while i got a screen shot of the flight and kept adjusting. I could've hit rth, but it's setup end never tested so i wanted to see if we could get it back. pretty soon we noticed it flying right at us. That's one problem with the wing is she sure is hard to see, like a stealth

1st fpv meet @ Daves Beach zII full flight (14 min 39 sec)


Daves Beach zII live feed (13 min 16 sec)


I didn't figure it out till the next flight on a quad, couldn't get the motors to start, the trims were all over the place, then i was like, WOW. Good thing i use ppm on everything, it all is setup the same ch with the same knobs for gains, osd and such. Almost donated one to china
