    Smile Just purcased a used Ritewing Zephyr, hows the setup?

    I recently purcased a complete built ritewing zephyr, specs are as folows:

    85A Turnigy SBEC
    Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 3536/1200
    Prop: 12 x 6
    2 x 3200mah (4s)

    Is this a ok setup for the ritewing zephyr?
    I just feel theres something wrong, is the propeller too big? Seems huuge....

    Anyone know where i can get a folding prop for this setup? I have flied 2 times and both times when i land the propeller rips off the motor mount...

    Thanks

    think a 10x6 oder 10x7 folding prop should be more fitting

    And you don't need a folding prop. Just set a light brake on your esc and the prop will find the sweet spot behind the airfoil and stop. Non-folding prop are also much easier to balance.
