70 is the new 50
bobthenuke's Avatar
Other than my faux pas with the camera box all is going well. Here's what it looks like now - the next step will be to apply the Loctite spray adhesive and apply the 3mm laminate film.


Going through the thread once again I noticed that CK specified a good motor/prop combo so I'm ordering a Hacker A30-10L...looks like a great choice. Any comments regarding this before I drop the coin?

TIA,

-bob

Shipping update?


Any updates on shipping Chris? You mentioned USPS would send tracking #'s to international customers. I haven't received anything (Canada) so thought I'd ask to see how things are going bTW, I am invoice #279

Thanks, as you can see, we're all chomping at the bit here...

bob you are going 3s rite? That motor is good on 4s with 10x6 so 3s you might try a 11x6. Could be good i reckon, just make sure it doesn't over amp

According to the chart Hacker recommends only 3S but I'm far from an expert on motor/power/prop combinations when it comes to electric. It seems that whenever I step out of the bounds problems occurr.

I'm planning on 3S (just ordered the batteries this morning) and hadn't figured a prop yet. I have a biplane with one of these Hackers in it now and I fly with a 3S and 11-something prop and it'll climb forever. I just don't count on using full power for anything but maybe takeoff and the occasional crazy stuff.

Thanks so much for the heads-up!

A 4S and hacker a30-10l works just fine, I put it on my skywalker and gave it a good beating. It's a great motor and very resilient

I have this setup on the first Zephyr, with a 4,000mah 4cell. Last week i was doing a dive straight down...160mph +...
Then a little vibration, then some fluttering then flapping... result. Lost new GoPro2 bummer!!

So yeah, you wanna go fast that motor with a 10x6 folding cam prop and a 4cell will rip the wings off... literally

I buy a zephyrrrrrr II !!!! Uhuuuu
I am just wainting to see the building process to learn until my wing dont came. But, the some questions:

I dont have the locktite 200 in brazil, and i think its kind a problem to import. With adhesive spray could i use?

I really want to use vinyl or similar, if i do, i have to do before the lam, right? I should use vinyl, monokote, econokote, what is best for foam?

I bought from chris de 1300kv combo. I already bought a folding and 10x6 props. I read here some guys saying that is the config for 4s (i will use 3s). This is will work well on 3s?

I know thats not a specific question for the zII, but i am looking for a good osd with rth to use with the wing. Range video is a good choice ? I didn find a thread explains how the rth works on wings.

yes the 1300kv system will work on 3 cells but you might need to prop up...
im going to be runing 9x7.5 and 10x7 on 4 cells

Mum is the word!

spray adhesive.


You guys can use a lite coats of lockite 200 or 3m77 ,I would not use 3m 90 as the pre lam adhesive. It doesn't spray smooth and is heavy with solvents. I have also used the elmers spray adhesive with great results.

Chris, what prop you recomend for your combo, i already bought some 10x6 for folding ?

3m77 is easy to find here. I will get the same result as locktite?


Rocky2, what is your guess for prop with my config?
Nov 24, 2011, 10:56 PM

Yes Gus the 10 6 will be fine 3 m 77 will work great too.

10x6 will be okay but if you need more power go to a 11x6
