Thread: Wraith Micro 27.5" Build & Info

    Ahh ok as long as i know where to have it now it should be no problem i think, but one thing i don't really get is if it should be accived with or without the battery in it? I'm guessing with but it's just an unqualified guess :P

    With the battery. You want the CG to be in the right spot with the plane as it would appear in flight.

    I just received one of these as well (taking a short break from my quad builds) This is my first winged rc aircraft so please bare with me...My MZ-24 Tx has multiple wing mix options, which one would be appropriate for the Micro Wraith?
    Also, the plane doesn't have a rudder so are Yaw and Roll redundant on the Tx? Or do they behave differently? Or is only one used for turning?

    I can already hear all the facepalms so sorry again for such a newbie question.

    Should be just the standard plane setting, no mixing needed. Yaw is not used, only roll.

    Thanks j5coat...I thought it would be more complicated than that...Would a Drak be set up the same way? (On my bucket list if the Wraith project is successful)

    No, the drak has elevons, so elevator and aileron's are mixed into one. I forget what mix it is, have not set one up in a while.

    Had my maiden today, after some launching problems (me a noob tried) it took of, like a motherflying rocket!! Had put down the rates to like 60% but it was crazy responsive on that and i panic a bit. Tried to save it los first and then i was like "what th F am i doing, fpv is soo much easier so put on the googles and started to battle it. And then the picture went away, ripped of the google to try to see where it "landed" just to se it go like 100km/h (60mph) straight down to the ground... Now panic nr two arrived, how the hell am i gonna find that one in the 1meter (3 feet) tall grass"!? But i found it, but then panic nr 3 came, the "hmm it look's a little crocked" panic :P Only one ripped wing, the support to the back is one of them broken in two and the front is a little bent :P So now more glue, more and new laminate and rates down to 30% and wait until next day with nice weather, and that time i'm not gonna be alone and it' not gonna be really windy and im gonna check why the picture went away :P It was really quick tho so happy anyway :P

    Don't turn your rates down in the radio, set them up mechanically. Closest to center on servo, all the way out on control horn. More resolution and power.
