Zagi First Flight - Oh dear.

I have just got back from the first flight with the Zagi. It was'nt only the Zagi's first flight but mine too in well over a year!

A friend and I pulled up to a field and the weather was'nt too bad, But as soon as i got setup and finished instructing him to launch it parrallel to the ground the wind picked up.
Every time he went to launch it would gust easily upto 20Mph.
My friend Steven ready for launch

Hello,
Your Photo seems a bit odd... Why are both elevons down? You must have been trying to keep your friend from becoming airborne.
