I wish I could tell ya. They are custom winds from Morphs. I am going to fly it here and take her to SEFF and he has offered to rewind them for me for free. Said he has a new method that will make them more efficient. But, I want to finally try her out. hope it goes well

Will the 2800kv motor burn out if I run it on 4s with these props? Gonna be putting them in the TL40 and TL50 Slice. I also have a couple Mega 16/15/3 and an Arc 28mm 2.5 turn motor. Any suggestions will always be appreciated.
Like Adam said the 2535kv was built to run on 4s with a 6" prop... but, the 2800kv motor will turn a 5.5x4.5 prop at about 45 - 48 amps and 650 - 670 watts without breaking a sweat... well at least in Canada where it is a little cooler than the Southern USA

Cool. Thanks for the info, methos. I'm gonna try to run my motors on 6x4 or 6x5.5 since there seems to be balancing issues with the 5.5x4.5 props (per ritewing podcast #2). I don't have a prop balancer and so I just stick my prop on and let her rip. If I hear and feel lots of vibrations while holding the wing, then I move on to another prop.

Balancers are cheap eh? Will you have one for me the next time I come visit in a month or so? I have no idea what kinda rpms I'm turning. I don't have something to count the rpms either.

36" & 54" Lightning maiden flights

Finally got a chance to fly the Lightnings and everything went excellent. Weather was great w/ 10-20mph wind which had no serious effect on the wings.

54'": Only flew one 10 min flight but it flew great, very stable w/ only minor trim needed. Thrust angle was dead on (pure luck), I was a little concerned it would be a problem with outrunner setup. This is a very stable fying plane but a little underpowered on my setup: JGF 500T on 3s4200 and 7x5 prop. I think a mega 5-turn or ARC 2turn may be better for this plane. Very good glide characteristics, would make an awsome sloper, as I could get it way up and then glide around forever.



36": OH YEAH BABY! This is going to be a favorite very quickly. This sucker flew great, just needed a pinch of trim and minor thrust angle tweak(down about 1/8 inch) then it flew dead on an very fast. I changed my drivetrain for maiden to Mega 3-turn on 3s4200 with 5.25x4.75 prop. Auw on this setup was 32.5 oz and it was an awsome flier, very fast an very maneuverable, very sensitive to too much input and flies very stable at slower speeds. I really liked the way this Ritewing flies, very fun, fast and stable even on windy day

Ritewings kick ars and the man always delivers what he advertises.

Congrats on the maiden, the arc 2t longcan will run an 8x4 on 3s it will also run a 7x7 for some more speed, I have yet to test the 7x7 but the calc showed similiar amps as the 8x4.

My 60 really flies great on this setup, not much punchout but it does not feel underpowered.

FS33 with a big battery :-)

so here is the start of the FS33
there are 2 bays on top the forward one fits a 3S1P 3500 MAH 25C

its going to use a small outrunner & a small 40 amp ESC I have
there is no room in the body for servos so they may have to be mounted externally against the fuse at the LE of the wing
probably over weighted
I could use a smaller bat which would probably move the CG forward & lighten it up
as it stands its about perfect ballancing at the LE next to the fuse
we will see :-)
take care
