HobbyKing Wingnetic

EastBay RC went officially crazy at the HobbyKing Black Friday sale.  First up, the Wingnetic!


  • Build was simple, just glue on the fins.  Double check that the wings are glued on, some people report that they're not completely glued an were loose in flight.
  • CG is 240mm-250mm from the front of the spinner.  The manual says 205mm, which is incorrect.
  • a few clicks of up elevator (about 1mm) helps on launch.
  • Some people report 60% travel with 50% expo for low rates works well.
  • removable fins mod.
  • Demo7 shows how to laminate the wings.
