My Buddy Tregon Owens and i went out to sorrento for some more ruby data collecting and a good time. He caught a cool set of shots of me launching a ET osd pro self leveling enabled zii and a bunch of zxl action shots..... Just ordered 6 more packs for the zxl s it can start getting a little more stick time. Been running off one set

Man. If you get a few more of them Z's you can then go back and fly that squadron against them F18 and Predators you run into at the river.

Cool. Thanks for sharing. I'm new to Ritewing stuff (still building my Z2) and was not aware you can get "extras"



Great color scheme on the Z2 BTW

Their are vert stabliziers , and their are vortilons that wrap the LE about 1/3 in from the winglet.
The verts do work well on the ZII too , combined with the vortilons they make for some smooth flying.

My ZII has vortilons and it flies very smooth.


I am going to add the Verts to night, maybe the weather will hold out so I can try them out.
