Looking great Dudley!

Don't listen to Bakkie...
He's gonna try to get you to fix his using flattery!

So, what does the wing weigh?
J, who just can't get it light!

Wing bolt and servos left to do. oh, and wing tips needs a little cleaning up with some sandpaper.

Hey Ziggx
15km/h may be a bit light for a Zally, unless you have some great lift...
Holding thumbs!

As I said she did fly!!!

This is s fun plane to fly, THE PASTY and JOHANN you have made magic with this one!
Im absolutely in love with Zsally!!!


I went to try out a new slope site, the wind was about 10 knots, so some other flying gadgets where thrown of the slope ridge... Had my fun but there was a mayhem to be unleashed!

17 knots and decided to give it a go...
1st try - she flew all over the slope skunk drunk!
I had all my throws 100% in all 4 directions... U can imagine what was going on...
Landing is a real PTA!!! and she had her first bruise...


Added some more nose weight and adjusted my throws and she went straight and perfect!!!


SHE WAS FLYING, I had a baby's smile all over my face!!!


The video is a bit boring, since I was alone and my camera budy was a big rock, U only get her passing by and ... oh there she goe........s.... and ..... oh there........ she is again..... (BORING, Im trying to make a small re-edit for evidence...) Only 2 pics to prove myself...
Landing was again a PTA... and she got her second bruise, the fuse has a little crack, but it can take a lot, and I was missing a aileron horn! So no more flying today...


She is OK and will fly another day, I believe ive got her sorted out...
Fast and steady! Careful, use your thumbs wisely... she manages some tight curves!!!

HAPPY almost 9 months later... definitely going to try a second and lighter wing.

THANKS GUYS!!!! true words!!!

Way to go, Layer!!!! Welcome to the Flyin' S(Z)allys Club!

Looks like a nice flying site, from what I can see. Even a couple of seconds of video would be nice.

I'll be flying mine tomorrow!

Man... you've got to talk with JB, Johann. In the MidWest it's more like Mmmoooooo....

Yeeha is for the Wild West (no relation to MidWest)
