    Thanks for the review! The pepperbox is an awesome antenna, but sometimes you can out-fly your control at low altitude. To combat that issue, I designed the VAS Diamond antenna. If you tend to fly...

    It should be out for Black Friday. Just have a few things to finish up (like the build video). This will retail for ~$39 or so.

    FB groups taking over isn't bad as it clears out a lot of the noise and B.S. that used to happen on forums. The forums are going back to good old fashioned tech now.

    BillyD - Yeah, the forum is dead. Facebook more or less took over.

    The plane can be twisted up really bad in the build and fly fine. I tested a few different configurations and all went well. A...

    Nothing out-runs a Wyvern on a racetrack. Nothing. It isn't a very popular wing simply because I don't bother advertising it. But a Wyvern will walk a Hardcore down the racetrack all day long.

    You must run 5.8GHz analog video. This includes me eventhough I run 2.3GHz and 3.3GHz on everything I fly. The reason is for timing and judging. If nobody has your video feed, your run cannot be...

    If you have a Banshee already, get the Sphinx. The Wraith and banshee are very similar. The Sphinx is a "hold my beer and watch this" type of plane. Laminate it well, build it light and the plane...

    Add some vertical surface in the middle of the wing (like I do on my Anubis airplane) and it will help control the wobbles.

    US version simply has illegal channels blocked, that's all. If the FCC catches you running illegal channels, it can be a VERY steep fine.

    Why does it matter which is the grounded side? It works the same inverted as it does upright.

    Good idea. Most tilt them 30-35 degree angles in different directions. I tend to lay one flt on the wing and the other upright. Both ways work equally well.

    Nice drag reduction on the wings! Did you match the airfoil by measuring it, or did you look up the Clark Y airfoil?

    With RTF aircraft it is usually a bad idea to exceed the original power system unless you upgrade the whole thing. If the battery is hot, you need a bigger battery, not a higher "C" rating. C...

    The Wraith is twitchy, which is what makes it so nimble and maneuverable. Use the top hole on the control horns on this one. Otherwise the plane turns faster than the camera scan rate!

    The Wraith is one of those airplanes that is sensitive to CG, but is fairly easy to hit. Start at the wing leading edge and work your way back. It should rest ~3/4" behind the wing leading edge.
