The Witblitz-2 kit is not available anymore.

Witblitz-2

This is a faster version of the popular Witblitz Pylon Racer that we raced in 2009 and 2010. Speeds of 200+ km/h are easily attainable.*

Being intended for high speed, the new Witblitz-2 features a redesigned all-wood fuselage to withstand the higher flight stresses. The new fuselage is also much slimmer, adding to the funky good looks of this hasty new kid on the block.

The new tapered wing looks very elegant and it sports a new, low drag, high speed airfoil. The Witblitz-2 feels rock-solid when going very fast, while retaining the easy-launching and slow-landing abilities of it's predecessor.

There are two power options with the Supra 2216 Brushless Motor. With a 3-cell LiPo pack, the Witblitz-2 has a top speed of approx. 150 km/h, but a 4-cell LiPo transforms this model into a real screamer with a top speed in excess of 200 km/h.

* The Witblitz-2 prototype was clocked at 210.8 km/h on 29 January 2012, using a 4-cell LiPo.

* Danie de Beer recorded 253km/h on 28 September 2012 (measured with on-board GPS).

The equipment used was a standard Supra 2216-1900Kv motor on 4S Nano-Tech 1300mA/h 45C LiPo.
