it can sometimes be off a fair bit though with prop brands, elevation, etc.

Will the Ritewing motor/esc combo take a 11x5.5 prop? Would a 11" prop even fit on a Zii?

Think a higher rated esc with the same motor would handle the prop on 4s?

I'm looking to buy a VTx and Vrx and antena from RMRC. I fly dragon link and want to get some good range. What are my best options, are the new 2500mw 1.3 vtx overkill or is that a good choice?

Sorry miss read your post. So if I'm going to be using a gps it's best to use 2.4 not 1.3 for my VTx? If so back to the question what vTx should I be using and should I use a clove leaf style antena or a vee?

RMRC are discontinuing lawmate. i get mine from team-blacksheep.com

you need to read the stickies mate, nobody can tell you what VTX you need, you have to work it out.

I Toast Planes

I'm looking at this plane as a christmas gift (for myself hehe) but I am curious about the laminating process. Is it easy to botch? I always make mistake the first time I do something and I would hate to screw up such a nice plane as this is. Also, the GoPro mounting system, is it worth the $35? Couldn't I build something similar out of balsa for cheap? Oh and yeah, I'm pretty much sold on this.

Thanks,
Bakon
