    Ritewing Zephyr Discontinued?

    Hey guys! New to this forum and really curious what happened to the Ritewing Zephyr on the Team Black Sheep website? I'm sure this has been answered before, if so I aplogize in advance. But I haven't found the answer yet. The link to the Zephyr on the TBS website just says "Secret Project.... nice try though " anyone have any more insight into this?

    I need me some Zephyr!

    Nooooooo. Thanks for the quick reply Trappy. Looks like it's the Caipirinha for me.

    Rufio- why not get the Zephyr direct from Ritewing or other retailers?

    Ritewingrc.com only sells a Zephyr 2,3 or XL. Which I could do, I just like the nice neat package that team black sheep does with everything you need in one. Like they're doing with the Caipirinha currently. After viewing all the YouTube vids of the Caipirinha, it just seems a bit squirly which is characteristic of smaller wings. The Zephyr always looked like a solid and smooth platform.

    I have a Z2 Z3 & Caipirinha and would highly suggest the Z3 for its smooth flying and easy breakdown. The Z2 is a nice flier except for the typical delta wing waggle which I've gotten use too. The Caipirinha has the same waggle and is weak on 2s; still the Cap is compact and winglets can be removed for transport.

    This? Looks like the Z2 package is still in stock. Add the electronics package and it's the full setup..

    The Z1 is just an old airframe; that's why it's discontinued..

    I think he was looking specifically for the EPP Zephyr, which is what the TBS Zephyr was when they had it.
