Happy to see you went back down to 6.5x6
the way you fly with WOT for only 2-4 seconds ............. that extra .5" of pitch isnt worth risking the motor for !!!!!!!!!

Nice flying there guys!!

Finally done the build. Had to add 4.25 oz to the nose to get her balanced at 7.5". I will be able to reduce some of that lead when I bump up to 5s 5000. All in good time. Now I need to find a place to launch this bird. Philly is not know for it's large open fields.

Thanks Guys!!

Yes, its the 16-25-2ec with the electric prop.

I have a APC 6X4 Speed 400. Should I go with that instead?

The APC 6x4 Sport is the best prop !
If it aint the sport, then dont run 5 cells with the speed 400

stay with 4 cells untill you get the Sport

Question....... Been flying glow for about 6 years or so, still have a combat wing xe2 in perfect condition. I want to get back to planes that don't explode when they bump the ground. I have a mega 16 15 3 and a 16 15 4 .would the demon be better for 3 turn or 4 turn mega? thinking 3s Lipo. would the megas be suitable for the Z11

Some of the other guys will probably chime in, but I think most will say those motors are too small for the Demon. I use an Arc 28-47-1.5 on 4s pulling 67 amps or about 1000 watts to move mine. I have a Mega 16-15-3 on my TL 50 with 4s and it runs fine but it's definitely not as fast as the Demon.

Finally got started on my zeph 2 tonight, so far so good. Not sure if i got more glue on my hands and shorts or my spars lol, cant wait to wire this baby up, question tho.... Do most of u guys that put your vtx on the wing burn a hole on the wing or notch one out on top for wires, i might cook one through just thought it might be tough, kinda like directional drilling..

i cut a slot in mine with a snap razor. if you have an old soldering iron and a strait edge it can be just as easy.

Married with planes
Would a Z2 be a good next step after an EasyStar 2 ? I'll be using both as a FPV platform.
