NEW 900mm Popwing Blunt Sections

.
.
Currently not making these, due to moving and life in general getting in the way!


Introducing the 900mm Popwing Blunt Section! Just like the original Swift II Blunt Section, this is a new way to get a little extra space out of your wing for more gear, bigger batteries, or just more wing area. These are cut from a solid piece of 1.3# EPP. The LE will come a little long so it can be trimmed for an exact fit.

$16 shipped USPS in the CONUS for a 4" section
$18 shipped USPS in the CONUS for a 6" section

I can also combine shipping on multiple sections. Additional sections are $13 ea

Hey guys, thumbs-up for Derek, as he does an incredible job cutting these things. . They might as well have been made from the factory. Great workmanship, awesome product and fast shipping. (not to mention the fact that these fun little wings are on sale for $34 right now!!). This is some serious inexpensive fun when it comes to FPV and Derik has just made it even better.

Been looking for something just like this! Any chance you can make a 10" version?? I think that would be the perfect length for how I want to set mine up.

Thanks!
Don

Just received my pop blunt, and am impressed. The fit is dead on. I'll have plenty of room for my gear now. The stock mount fits perfectly onto the blunt. Hopefully have time to finish her up soon. Thanks great product.

More to come

Glued her up and am very happy with the results, might get her finished by the weekend. Lightly sprayed with Krylon Shortcuts rattle cans.

Nice! I like how you matched the paint ..... hard to tell it's not original.

What motors are you guys running on these larger span birds?? I'm running a Power 400 Zoom from headsuprc which powers the stock one nicely.

I was going to mention that even if you don't paint your blunt section, spraying it with a few coats of clear Krylon will give Derik's raw EPP a finish and stiffness very close to the EPP on the PopWing. You can also use the Solvent/Goop 50/50 mix that works even better and will make it practically indestructible.

Sweet motor!! I've had really good luck with Scorpion 2212's and 2215's and Innovative sells their show stock here quite often for around $20. Unlimited vertical, incredible quality and 20+ minute flights when combined with a 3S-2200 lipo. Just choose your KV according to your prop preferences (I prefer small 6-7" props so I stick to around 1800-2200KV but I know many prefer a larger prop which gives a much different feel in the air). My all time favorite motor for this and the Swift 2 is the MicroDan 2505 series but they're a bit spendy unless you find one used...

Cheers,
Mel
