Hi guys;
I went to buy a ZII from Chris and with good shipping offered, have decided to buy two!
One is for straight up fpv, plan on setting up for 3s or 4s, motor and esc is out of my skywalker, would you recomend a 3s or 4s set up from the start?
The other one is for fun LOS, Iam thinking of going with sixes, is this a good place to start? If so any recomendations motor prop combinations?

900- 1200kv 150g outrunner, 80A esc, 2x 4s 3300 30c batts, 10x5 prop in 900kv, 9x5 if 1200kv

add some LED's for night flying and you will have a blast. 6s can be fun but mate it is extremely loud and it's not really made for more than about 1000w and 100mph. 4s is great for people not used to hand launching big wings as it will basically fly out of your hand.

but heck if you have a spare one why not go all out i ran my original ZII up to about 2000w on 6s and it was a heap of fun. Poor build meant it failed mid flight and went for a swim.

let me know if you need more specific help with hardware selection.

Well I'm happy to see this, been wondering what you've been doing at 3AM every morning. It looks great, would you quit teasing us and start selling it! You can't have all the fun test flying a new Ritewing product, be nice an share.

Hey meatheads!

Yeah I suck. I fell out of RC. Just strait burned myself out to the point of losing all inhibitions to do anything RC.

I still stare at my fatty demon kit and think about building it.... but the time is never rite.

Some of my most favorite people ive met in life frequrnt this page. So I just wanted to check in and give ya all some news.

I'm finally getting married!!!!

After 15 years together our relationship is actually getting better and better so its a safe bet that shes the one LOL.

Anyways wish me luck men! Saturday October 20th is my last day as a single man.
