Features:

  • 2-piece, hollow molded, carbon fiber reinforced wing
  • Full carbon fiber, square wing joiner
  • Gel-coated, fiberglass-carbon reinforced
  • 2,4GHz friendly fuselage with enough room to accommodate your electric drive system up to 5S battery
  • Lightweight canopy gives easy radio and battery access
  • Ailerons and flaps can be used to significantly increase the soaring and speed capabilities
  • V-Tail control horns and installation rods as well as CF reinforced servo wing pockets already installed
  • Two piece, composite, hollow molded wings and V-Tail surfaces are easy removable
  • All surfaces are pre-painted in the molds for flawless external finish

Available in 2 Versions:

  • Glass: Standard hollow molded fiberglass construction reinforced with carbon fiber which gives adequate stiffness and torsion stability with lower weigh and cost. Highly recommended for sport flying.
  • Carbon: Wings built using full carbon cloth as well as fuselage reinforced with carbon from leading edge of the wing to the tail. This configuration gives the model enormous stiffness and torsion stability.

And what a great group of people. I have known ZB since my earliest RC days with Hobby Lobby and David Henderson and I go back just as far. Good stuff!

Is there a build thread on this plane anywhere? I just got one and am trying to figure out how to set up the V Tail servos...

They offer free shipping (by air) so you get at least one good flight out of it before it breaks.

That's true btw.
