I had nothing to do with the sticky? forget who it was but alls he did was request it to the mods and they made it happen. If you back track a dozen pages you can see who it was.

Oh well I guess we can go back to having a dozen seperate ritewing threads as oppose to one great one

Politics....... hmmmm......


You can keep this thread alive by posting your progress and pics.

Looks like I'm coming over to the dark side

Going to buy a 40" Demon from Chris.

Going to set it up as a 4S ship for now!

Motor will be a Neu 1110/2Y 2500KV One crack head to another I really liked the way it flew in that video!

Not sure what packs to run but after doing some searching here on RCG I may go with 4250mah packs as I don't want to have to add any lead weight.

Looking at these to lipo configurations: $143.26

http://www.cheapbatterypacks.com/ma...man=PRC&cat=PLP

Poly RC (Poly RC LP Line 18c)
PRC 2S 4250mah PLP seriesDimensions
16 x 45 x 147mm
0.63 x 1.77 x 5.79inWeight
194 gms.
6.85 oz. Price Total weight for Two at 13.7 oz.
$71.63 Factory C Rate
18C - (76 amps)

continuousBurst C Rate
27C - (114 amps)

under 10 seconds Ideal C Rate
15C - (65 amps)




Or two 5000mah 4S packs!? $117
These are made by: Saehan Enertech packs in Korea
ZIPPY-R 2500mAh 21-35C 4S1P

Spec.
Minimum Capacity: 2500mAh
Configuration: 4S1P / 14.8v / 4Cell
Constant Discharge: 21C (Minimum)
Peak Discharge (10sec): 35C
Pack Weight: 259g Two would be 18.1 oz
Pack Size: 125 x 41 x 28mm

105 amp cont. 175amp surge!

Which would give me a 42C/70B 4S




Servos? 821 digi servos metal geared???

Or HS225MG is there much difference in flying non digital compared to analog?

Hobbycity.com has a few digital metal gear list at around $27 to $33 each but are just a tad heavier...but I may stay with a name brand.

Thanks,

Oh, BTW, My Wild Wing will be nice to fly in small areas and I'm not going to try and make it any faster...it flys nice at around 85mph on a cheap motor... I will be trying to teach my boy how to fly it soon...good trainer for him!

I have found that the 225 mg servos like to wander some times and had much better luck with the digi's the just keep you connected better it seems,plus they have tons of torque.
I can also get those batterys for you no prob.

HEY KC, glad to see you finnaly have come around.. I knew it was a matter of time before you maxed out the WW

I would not waste you bucks on the CBP ur UH packs in the long run you will spend more.

CK has packs that are very close if not dead on to the PolyRC and Polyquest packs.. I have been beating the snot out of some of the packs with great luck..

I have about 30 cycles (flights on them now) and they still discharge the full rated capacity and when LVC is hit i put back almost the full rated copacity.. Nice cells in the packs.. and the pack construction is right up there with the other top brands.

You wont be disapointed..
