I will score one for sure at SEFF (IYF) I want a lite ritewing to toss around. I will likely snag 2, one I will paint and not do any covering, the other I will do the riteway.

Adam, that looks sweet man. I love seeing a sub 20 oz 44 inch wing! It should be extremely stable at low speed. I think the 1350 30C rhino packs would make it scoot and it would still remain lite.

Yep I personally prefer 2-1 thrust for those moments but If it handles well with a 1-1 thrust I may try some lighter options....

I am not even sure what that motor is gonna pull, all my batts are at your house, LOL. I will prolly use an 8x4 if amps llow it but I will prop down to a 7x5 if needed...... I may need a whole different wind, I packed as many winds as possible with the 24g, if I need to cool it down I will need some 25g wire.

Demon XT is all covered...

I finished up my Demon XT today... All in all it turned out ok, better than I thought it would. Guess I will get it up in the air on the 27th or so and see how it does..

That should stand out nice and bright in the GA skys, looking forward to seeing it. OK, help me out, what is the Demon XT?

4.5 working days and a 9 hour drive is all that stands in the way of me and Americus GA
