ZOHD Orbit NEON (Official Thread)

A bit of History...

The 900mm ZOHD Orbit has been around for a while. Her wonderful stability in flight combined with a second to none portability and innovative assembly system makes her one of the most desirable airframes for any FPV lover: Hundreds of wonderful reviews online testify about this fact.
Of course, we could have just revamp her under our very popular MKII format, make it heavier, larger, more complicated to setup... Instead of all of that, we went the other way around: This wing is already tons of fun, how can we take it to the next level, without compromising the fun factor?

Doing it at night!

ZOHD Orbit Neon is the world first snap-n-fly portable FPV wing with built-in LED for night flying. It is easy to hand launch and fly super stable, the Orbit wing is very convenient to carry with because the detachable main wing can be assembled easily by plugs, meanwhile the new crash absorption system will save the plane even in a hard crash. The built-in servo structure makes the airfoil more aerodynamic and avoid damage even in a crash.

Motor: 2204-1870KV

For those of us looking forwards to the darker evenings ......... an internal view of the Orbit NEON wing panels which throw some nice light patterns at night. Think of these individual "pockets" as Pixels

25x WS2812B addressable LEDs weigh around 8 grams ( plus solder and your wiring )

Now , the NEON will of course show its true glory in the Autumn/Winter months which is lucky because i have a lot of soldering to also gives me a little time to work things out ( rather than the typical ADHD un-box and run to the field to be the first to fly ) .

Led control will be performed by an ESP-32 connected via its WiFi to my Android phone giving me full control over the colours and patterns the LED's will show ( this part is already done ) Wiring will either be kynar or enamelled magnet wire which is already pretested and capable of carrying the voltage around the system

Option 1 is a Neo Pixel in each bay, this is around 25 pixels , the long bays will need more than 1 just because of the light scatter through the foam so 25 is an approximate

Option 2 is far more complex BUT it will show in the colours displayed via the light scatter of the foam. This option is around 78 pixels ( approx 1 ounce in weight of LED's ) plus wiring. The Orbit NEON can easily accommodate this increase in weight and is it is spaced relatively well across the whole of the wing i dont foresee any problems

I will be using an ESP32 to control the Leds along with a 5V PDB/BEC

And then there's this stuff

Trying to decide whether to use "Dotstar" or "NeoPixel" Led's. Both types can be "programmed"

NeoPixel = cheap but larger size and weight
DotStar = more expensive but have a smaller footprint/weight

There are also Electroluminescent panels/strips/paints but these come with their own issues

Does this have the same gyro unit as the plain orbit? Was flying a few days ago and my gyro freaked out on me and caused a catastrophic crash. Destroyed everything in spectacular fashion.

Would hate to be flying at night and have the same thing happen.

I'm thinking of this as my first wing, is the stabilizer different from the older non-neon Orbit?

It is improved and the older one is very good.

battery issue or something else

Battery question/issue
I just got this wing last night and was not able to fly it. I was using a regular sized 2200 Mah battery and the plane would go side ways and hit the ground. I tried with safe mode, on and off and it didn't matter. Should I be using the smaller 11.1 volt batteries? I didn't see anything about he cg in the one page manual!!
Any help is appreciated
