We had about three inches when I got up this morning but its mostly gone now. I am so ready for summer to get here especially after being in Phoenix working a couple of weeks ago. I have a Z2 and Demon 50 sitting here that need to be build but I haven't even ordered any gear for them yet. I am going to try and get the Z2 flying this summer but the big demon is probably going to be next winters project. I have way to many projects and not near enough time to do them all.

From what I have gathered in various posts I think CK wants to get away from hotwire cutting in general. When I was at CK's house a few weeks ago I don't remember seeing any kits other than the Z2 sitting around. I picked up one of the few Demon 50's that he cut. The new molded planes like the Z2 are the future. I think the Z2 is the only ritewing that is readily available at this time. Until you hear it from the man himself though its all just speculation on my part.

I would give up flying wings before I fly a Zagi.

Yeah, I stop in hereabout once every 9 months to be tempted to buy a Demon or whatever the fastest wing in production is.

But I am confused. Is Ritewing still a full on business of providing different wing kits?

the best idea johnny is to email CK directly and ask him about what you are after. if it is a ZII you will be satisfied quickly, if it is something else you may need to wait for the next production run, CK will be able to say how long that might be.

im only guessing though. he may have cut some leading up to seff etc. so best to contact him direct.

Anyone got any tips for making their Zephyrs as stable as possible? My Z2 is oscilating a bit under high speed. Im not sure if its just not made for those high speeds or if its something with my setup.

It was a windy day here but still a bit to wobbly under the high speed runs.
