i have been busy

in the next few weeks i should have my new ritewings built, a Demon 40 and a new ZII

the demon is on 2x 2s 5000 40-50c batts for 4s 5000, with a mega 16/25/2 EC from and an ICE 100 it will have a 6x4 APC sport prop, and also run a CC 10A BEC. video system is a 420osd cam, a HK simple osd and a LM 500mw Vtx. it will run about 1000w and should be good for 5 mins of full throttle, max speed somewhere around 120mph.

the demon build invloves....
- 2 surface wing spars
-3 centre spars, 1x 6mm FG spar buried in the centre and 2 surface spars over it top and bottom
-1 layer of riteweave and 3m90 over the whole wing
-3 more layers of riteweave + 3m90 over top and bottom from the CG forward
-gorilla glue over the whole wing, a thin layer, do not allow it to foam up. keep knocking it down for 1/2 an hour.

the ZII has ritewing motor and 80A esc, 4s 3000's x2 and also runs a CC BEC. it will have an aeronaut 10x5 folder. it will laso have Ez UHF control and an EzOSD, and a LM 500mw Vtx and a TBS 69 camera.

mods to the ZII from standard are :
-TBS battery box
-an extra 6mm carbon spar on the top inline with the 2 main buried FG spars.
-riteweave and grilla glue over the surface spars and leading edge.

more pics as the build continues.......Continue Reading

righto so its time to build the zeph. have held off for a few months while learning on my IYF44 but i think im ready to build the big one.

not hard to see a big influence in this build are the TBS zephs - infact they are the reason i ever got into rc. after seeing the footage uncle trap gets i knew this was the sport for me.

so yeah im building it the RITE way unlike the ultralite way everyone seems to be for fpv but i built my IYF44 ultralight and have since broken one of the wing spars pulling high g's in a loop so i want this to be BULLETPROOF. 3M90 and riteweave allround!

seriously noone stocks the glues i need for this build so i just bit the bullet and went to amazon...... D: $30 for some white gorilla and 3M tape hmmm...

anyway i cant glue the wing spars in till i get the gorilla glue and i cant cut the bays out till i get the bottom layer covered in gorilla and weave. so here is the progress so far.
