Great job on the build and cover ! Your wing and work looks Great ! It will fly awesome ! Flo colors especially orange, to me are hard to work with. This is my 46 Lightning which was maidend this morning. Flys very well with a temp., short can Himax motor on 3s 3900mah. A little slow compared to a TL-50 or Demon. But still a Ritewing !!!

130 is easy to make on a Demon.. I got 136 straight and level into a pretty stiff headwind on 4 cells with an ARC..

Tram's left thumb + lack of air flow to motor = magic smokes..

Gryphon is right, the motor was not the weak link..

shopping list for my 1st ritewing?

Hi all, I'm looking to buy/build my 1st Ritewing, that has the most amazing speed possible

I'm trying to create a shopping list so I don't miss anything but also to calculate cost.

Can you tell me what I miss out:
- Demon 40 Dlite (Chris says V2 will help for this specific build)
- Lipos: 2 X 6S 4000 mAh
- ESC: Going to go for a Castle Creations : ICE LITE 100...is this powerful enough?
- NEU 11 12 (Not sure if I need a 2Y or 2.5Y)
- What king of prop should I use and size??
- Servos: Not sure what size? but I'll buy some metal gear ones
- Riteweave: I guess this is what I use to cover it
- GLUE:??? Because I live in the UK, I believe Chris can't ship glue..or whats it called and I'll see if I can get it here.
- Can I spray paint it after?
- Does it come with control horns etc for ailerons??
- Motor mount? I guess I need to make this rock solid if I want to put some real power through it...
- Do I have to make an air scoop to keep the motor cool??

Any help people would be greatly appreciated as I have no idea where to place everything on the wing

I'm hoping the build DVD will help me..

Cheers

Dan

hi guys i am about to start on my very first ritewing. my poison will be a demon v2. i will be receiving it soon hopefully tomorrow. up to date i have only flown diy stuff made from fff zagnutz style and relatively low power at around 200 to 300 watts on 3s. so i decided it was time to get a purpose built speed demon (pun intended). for now i will be running a scorpion 2215-1860 outrunner motor on 3s spinning a graupner 6x5.5 cam prop. with this setup i am looking at around 95 mph of pitch speed and about 20oz of thrust and 230watts and only pull 21 amps. and i can easily step up to a 4s setup without changing motors. for servos my plan is to use jr/spectrum 821's. so i am kinda indecisive on my color scheme i have narrowed it down to 3 possible versions. the bottom of the wing will be either solid or some form of prison strips from LE to TE.

so tel me which one you like and your opinions of my power train

i may drop a wind on the motor to make it a little bit hotter but for now that is my plan

I like the red, black and white one
In fact, If you don't have a problem with it, I may borrow the scheme to do my first RW IYF build

ATIS- I *think* that is the motor CK let me borrow..

I ran it on 4S and a 6x4 sport... You need a Phx 125 or you will cook something..

Going to have to check her... I pulled her out of my old fun get (on 3s see was fast) so I think I have a 90amp or 100 amp Dualsky attached. Looking for a home for them both! LOL
