Nice video. Only problem was that I counted 6 Zephyrs at the end of the film.

New setup


I am new to fpv or flying airplanes all together but would like to build my first zephyr plane. I will be starting from scratch so basically i need all the equipment. Iwould like to start with the basic los flying but with an option to expand to fpv exquipment later on.
Can someone please suggest what motor/ servos, etc i sould buy?
I was thinking or getting turnigy 9x controller which can be reflashed. Is it any good, or should i consider something else.
I appriciate any input.
Should i just buy a premade set or "carve" the plane myself(i am quite handy)

Thanks

I'd highly recomend taking at least one step back and jumping in at the skywalker level. A zephyr is alot of plane, covers alot of ground and gets into trouble real fast.

Ditto on that, I started out on a zephyr II, and discovered that the hard way. If you absolutely must start on a wing, try a popwing/teksumo. You'll appreciate the low cost and relative indestructibly/ease of repair.

Nice! How did you get on with five/six fpv systems running? Limited to close range only? What were they all to make it work?
What was the blasphemous non zephyr pilot flying?

Well I maidened my Zephyr II today. Sadly it had an unanticipated run in with a tree. Should be an easy repair just very hard on the heart. What's the method to uncrumpling the Z's foam?
