    NEFPV Spec FPV RaceWings

    Hi All! What is NEFPV? Who cares.


    This thread is to introduce and catalog information on NEFPV Spec RaceWings. We are building a small fleet of these wings in order to have FPV wing races. The Spec Wings will all be built the same way with the same components to even the field. Plus they are easy to build, cheap, and fly surprisingly well.


    So here are the specs and some pictures. We are working on having at least 10 of these wings ready for racing this spring, and will probably have more like 20 of them. We plan to hold a meet and any FPV pilots can sign up to qualify and race the spec wings. No you do not need to have your own wing, but you can build your own and bring it to the races if it meets the specs.


    EDIT: Thanks to SlowJet for putting together the first video of the SpecWings, a preview race between JoeSa and WillM.

    If you are not trying to fit through an opening that is just too tight, you are not FPVing.

    NEFPV SpecWING Specs:


    Spec wing/ Nite Wing Specifications
    Both wings are built using the CNC HP Wing blue foam kit which is from cnc-hp-wings. $15 for the CNC cut foam and wood motor mount/former. Search CNC hp wing and watch his videos... at the end of them is his email. The nitewings are the same kit but built by Ernie. He builds them with a flat bottom instead of a semi symmetrical bottom and installs LEDs internally for night flying.

    I built a jig to assemble the wings faster and with consistency. PiscaJ has a better version of the jig in the works.

    Got my stuff gathered for the build. Waiting on vtx and cam. Using a different frsky rx. Mostly because I git a deal on 4 of them.
    My vtx on order is not immersion but it fits specs and supposedly should work with either boscam receivers or immersion rxs. Plus it's about 20 dollars cheaper.

    It would be cool to have a complete kit from a vendor. One stop shopping, ready to rock.
    Would love to go to race like that!
    Flying through the cash.

    You do not need a jig but it makes it easier to build the plane in a airfoil as the rest of the scep wings. You can build flat on a table but will have a more flat bottomed wing than how they come out of the jig. If you watch the jig build video, you could try taking the measurements and just use a couple boards to get the fold right...

    If you get a kit, bring to my place next meet and you can use my jig to fold and glue it.

    We have flown in 5 of them and have had a couple pre races. Spring event will be a full race event with these wings. Each pilot who want to race will pay in tp use the existing wings and their own tx/groundstation.
    If you are not trying to fit through an opening that is just too tight, you are not FPVing.

    Thanks Bender...I am going to check with SJ on how he is building his wing. I may follow suit with him or just build at your place.
