Mounts are not done yet. should be soon!

A slice with the MD would be a beautiful pairing! That will be one light yet insanely powered bird!

Stay tuned for more mount info.

That is the motor I was looking at Paul, thanks. I also saw a thread where you had the new prototype mount that really got me thinking about this slice I have to build. Curse these damn Ritewings, I can't finish one before thinking about the next,

Hey Wngman65, You're not going to use those push on terminals on the motor esc are you? I've had a couple 3.5mm fail with resistance from getting hot...I always solder all my connections now for max power.

Looks like you are doing a great job on the build...looking forward to see a video soon!

Hey CK got the 40" Demon lite today with the motor...very, very high quality kit...I love the air foil and can see why it's so fast and tracks well!

I'll be reviewing the CD and see what I need to collect to start the build!

I run my Demon on 5S on the 550 and full throttle the whole time the motor comes down cold. I upgraded 60 6x5.5 and still cold. 6S became very difficult to launch. I'll see if I can post some video.

Vinnie
Hey Vinnie, sorry I missed your post! I know I was way over proped on that motor. On 3S it was a lot more fun on the 500T bell with a 7x5 prop...got to love 40+ oz of thrust!

Yes, I would love to see that video

Hey Ken, thanx. I use the Mpi bullet connectors, I'm always changing my setups. I think they are O.k. for motor as it is not constant. I would not use them for batt. I followed your wild wing thread from beginning, mine finally broke in half and flapped to the ground last summer. You'll love the ritewing, if built right, it flies tight and loves speed.

So CK do you know what this is.....

I still have to get to RS to get the connectors unless you want to do the final wire to the motrs I can send the color chart for cable to stepper.. Or do you want to wait till i get the connectors.. RS only has 2 sets M/F and i need 4 one for each motor.
