mostly finished the makeover of the wraith. total weight without lipo is now 196g, instead of 207g, saved 11g. whilst not a lot, every little lost helps! added a new vac formed dome, in gloss black, fixed with small velcro tabs to frame plate. i do prefer the matt though, as used on my y4/6, so may change that later. i have also added led strips to the arms for night flights!
also used 6"gws 3 blade props now, as seems to be slightly more stable, and motors barely get warm even after a good run!
also tried 3s lipo, and boy does it go! really lights up well too! motors and esc do get warm, but nothing drastic. i shall use 3s for night flights (also cooler at night, helps keep temp of motors and esc's down), and 2s for normal daytime running.
needs cable ties and a small receiver plate made up for front, good rx reception, and i like the "bug" look it gives
Edit; Now managed to glean another 4 grams off the weight by using one full servo lead, and signal only wires for the rest! (board to rx connections!) so total is 192g without lipo now!
