Default Zagi 3,3m

I want to share some information about my Zagi project. This is a bit bigger than a normal zagi but the structure is almost same with 2 servos, lot's of packing tape used and building time is not too long. The wing span is 3,3 meters and flying weight is about 10 kilos (22 lbs). I needed to add 1 kg steel to the front but the wing loading is still very low. One windy day I am going to try this piece of foam with 3-5 kg of ballastics on board.

Second flight: (on board cam)

First and second flights from the ground:

Based on 2 flights experience wing is very stable and easy to fly. I am really looking forward to try some slope soaring and thermal flying with this bird.

Cheers,

Mikko

That's cool and all, but Zagi is an independent company. Unless they are sponsoring you, it's not cool to use their name.

Call it a flying wing, or more correctly, a blended body airplane.

Not trying to harp on you or anything, but I wouldn't like it is somebody used my company's name so freely.

Cool plane though.

Even though it isn't a representation of your company's products?

Hi,
in Finland zagi is a common name to all flying wings. Sorry if this is a problem to you.

It's not. I was just giving you a heads up in case the company got mad.
