Hey Adam!
Riteweave is still new-school. Only thing that's "outdated" is Monokote. Been replaced with 3-5mil laminating film.
Though truth be told, I personally don't see a problem with Mono. The glass weave/90 gets all the tensile strength the wing needs. Anything more is just scuff resistance. My latest 3.5kW Demon is Mono'd!

insul mesh


Insulation contractors that blow in cellulose insulation (dense pack) sometimes staple up a mesh that seems like it could be suitable as a substitute for Henry's. Rolls are around eight feet wide. Has anyone tried that for strengthening (the cores)? Will try to get a pic/sample.

CK has a ZXR build on the way, looks like it might be comparable to some demon speeds...

yeah it is a lot bigger than the D40 but it's gonna fly nicer too, at a lower wing loading. if you have a good size field it would be a killer

It wont be anywhere Demon speeds, but it will be fast for FPV

well my demon 40 only does about 110mph on 1000w, i would guess you could do that with the ZXR right? even the old demon on crack video he posted would have only been a 120 demon rite???
