Well guys, I have been working on my secret project.
It will be a RiteWing Zephyr II flying wing with all the bells and whistles.
The ZII is the prefect candidate for what I have in mind. Besides it being made by a fellow pilot. Which means it was built for a pilot.
That I am! Wooot! Wooot!
The wing is very thick, so there is lots of room to put anything I want in her.
The air foil is thick like a floater should be, even some have boast +120mph.
But with a 56" WS, it should float pretty good.
Well, I can go one and on.
But, not this time!
Here is my parts list.
1. Zephyr II kit
2. Mega 22/30/3 great motor, yep that is an Inrunner!
3. Castle 50 HV ICE
5. 2 X Align DS-610 servos plenty of power.
7. 5.8 GHZ 500mw Immerson TX
8. CM-210 520TVL HIGH Resolution camera
9. 2 X 4S 4000mah Nano-tech
10. QUADRINO V1D
Here is a couple of pictures, with her naked. She is not even worried about you staring at her....Continue Reading

This is my rebuilt stryker.
I got it from Merril, when he thought it was time for him to switch bodies.
Well I covered it in Marine Epoxy
Then let it harden for 3 days. Then I painted it.
and before the paint dryed. I covered it in tape.

Okay I took my DJI F450 combo kit and converted it to a Spyder-Quad.
This very nice looking quad was designed and is available thru him at this time.
They are awesome looking once they are done.
The kits are cut mostly on a CNC router. Which leaves some of the little tabs, needed to hold to parts to the sheet?
All was needed was a little swipe of the exato blade and it was gone.
Be careful people!
Back to the kit.
Since my DJI was flying well and was setup well. It made since to throw everything in it. I may go to some more powerful motors once I check something out.
So, without even a thought I pulled all the screws out and separated all of the pieces.
If this flies the way it should I have found my main FPV rig and it will be powered by 2 4S 2650 nano-tech batts.
So after I got it all together for the test fit which I did it all when I met JSflyrv to pick it up.
We had ours shipped at the same time.
Well soon as I got home from showing it off at the LHS on the way home.
I jumped on it. Within an hour I had it together. But it was a mess.
Then I took it back apart to give it clean up the mess.
That was easy since I was planing on how to dress it up while test fitting everything.
I would say the hardest part of this build was screwing the bolts in several times.
Sorry guys, I like to get thing right.
So, everything I build usually got together twice before I Loctite it up.
It takes longer to do, I but stuff doesn't fall off ever...Continue Reading
Well My wife said to bad you didn't bring thr quad-copters.
I told her nothing was setup. But I could have it all installed within 5 mins.
She said, deal!
I got to the house and I jumped out with the mission of filming my boy marching in a parade.
Dressed in his blues.
So I grab the 3S Spyder-quad thinking longer flights and with the shock and awe comments. Oh yeah.
I had 4 batts in my hand. Thinking I got 40 mins of flight.
I took 10 rubber bands and secured the camera system.
One thing went wrong at first, I could not find my memory card for my video recorder.
So I put the Flip camera on.
Solid frame. No Flexing, anywhere. Thick frame plates. Arms are vented.
Light weight. And very cool looking!
So I got the kit in the mail just a few days later. Opened the box and everything was there. Plus some extra parts to have, we know it will happen. It is better to be prepared.
I put it together in like one hour.
Some of the parts needed a few touch ups.
Nothing on the finish. Just the slots and holes needed to be cleaned up.
Normally I put stuff together, checking for fitting issues.
I will sit and look at it for a day and decided what is going where. How I am going to route everything.
Decide if, I will use velcro, zipties or velcro straps.
The only thing I really think it could use is a slot underneath for the video transmitter. I still don't feel safe after having it fall off one morning, good thing I wasn't that far above the high grass.
Since, I wanted to run this one only on 3S.
I slapped some high KV motors on it. I know these motors ca n put out 220 watts a piece, safely.
Turnigy 2822/14 1450 KV
I run them with 8" props and quick response and could carry my four pound Next-Level 500mm.
But I broke one of the wires pulling it thru the arms.
So, out with them for now.
I changed my mind again.
Doing numbers in my head.
Maybe, I don't need to run a 3S battery. Save them for something else later. ...Continue Reading
