Default Fastest Zagi type wing?

Looking to get a fast brushless zagi type wing(Tazz?). Already put a mega on my X-ite wing but its not up to the speed this thing can reach.
Anyone got suggestions for a wing which is stable at high speed?

I had a zagi and thought it was great until I saw the wingwarrior planes,, now the link goes to hobby people , not sure if they bought them out or what ? anyways I you want fast I put a brushless astroflight 020 on the e-zipper and it screems on 8 cell nicad packs. 1300 scr. maybe they have something in lipo by now, not sure.

My son has the e-raider (bigger wing, easier to see) with the same motor but it is slower.

Unlike the zagy, you push very little while inverted. Great plane IMHO. no appilication, OH AND they are all EPP foam !!!!!!! indestructable, mine got ran over by a motor home, all I had to do was replace servo gears in one servo.
