    Ritewing Hardcore 44 build videos

    Got this beautiful kit yesterday. Its just amazing how this thing assembles. The grooves for the spars are cncd into the surface of the wingcores. There is an enormous amount of spars in all the right places, and the motor mount is exquisite. This is real engineering!

    Please feel free to comment, question or advice

    Thanks for the build videos. I will be starting my build next week. Kit is in though. Are the rods carbon or fiberglass?

    Fiber. It's I beam configuration, so it's ridiculously strong once sparred. If someone paid you to break one by hand, it would take some work.

    I haven't mentioned this in the videos yet, but this is a plane that builds tail heavy unless you are careful. Place all gear as far towards the nose as possible, and choose heavyish servos. My Hitec82s will help some, I will also utilize the battery compartment for some of the electronics. Only use a single layer of .3 or .5 lam as any extra layer will make the plane more tail heavy. A Runcam 2 also helps.
