Still a good price for the #16. Mine cost about $38 about a year ago. Having the wider lens and video cabling is worth the extra $6.

One with the blunt nose and the other with-out, seems to have been left in the dryer a little to long!
Dude! They look cool next to my non-shrunken ZII!

Hahahaha!, I can't lie anymore guys!
I am not really good at it!

Anyway guys and girls here is pictures of the new 30" Mini Z and the 24" Micro Z.

I ran into an issue with the micro, darn motor may not work!
But, I have another on it's way!

One the Mini Z should do good as it is, so I have to find the CG.
As soon as that happens I will shoot a video and show you guys what it is capable of!
With alot more info!
Since I said I would post pictures of them this morning, I am keeping to that.

Thanks Chris for shrinking my order,
Man some people get things Rite on the first WING!
Later!
I like the 30". Is that a special from Chris or is he selling them now?

Awesome DocAudio.. they're adorable!

I'll have my hands on a pair of my own soon! Can't wait to trick them out!
Please post your power setup and cg info once you've got a good fix on it. I'm a total rookie when it comes to that stuff.

Cheers!

I powered up my Ritewing motor and ESC today and got a series of beeps, but no action.

it would do five short beeps.
then two short beeps 5 times
then three short beeps 5 times
then four and so on and so on.

It's almost like the ESC is trying to determine how many cells I am using.

Please help!

Its trying to go into programing mode, so you need to lower the trim on the throttle all the way down.

This is a great motor!
cost 54.99

This motor is cheaper and does not have the same warrenty as the Micro dan!

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...208_2150_.html
cost 8.49

Holy moly!
This motor, if you could find a small enough battery to fit and put out 40 amps.

Sounds like a throttle trim issue on the radio, temporarily try another non fpv rx to weed out the issue.
