Could someone tell me where I can get replacement laminate Chris sells with his Z2 kit? I am looking for a roll of 100 to 200 feet in length but I am unsure what thickness or type. I have found this website in the states but could someone recommend which one is best:

http://www.laminatorwarehouse.com/

Thanks for any help

Hello,

You can go with:
http://www.modellbau-joost.de/magent...te-1000mm.html
It's the same 3 mil that Ritewing provides, but if you want something more durable:
5mil - http://www.modellbau-joost.de/magent...te-1000mm.html
and even more:
10mil - http://www.modellbau-joost.de/magent...1000mm-36.html

All the best,

Geotete

I don't know how much it weighs, I dont have scales to weigh :-/ I use 2x3300mAh 11.1V Turnigy lipo for engine and servos, 1x 1300mAh 3S for FPV. Here you can find my model: http://rc-fpv.pl/viewtopic.php?t=8885

Just to let ya'll know. I've made more clearance at the prop tips, scalloped out the back of the wing to more of a TE to decrease prop noise and increase efficiency. It's considerably quieter!
