UGLY Zagi photos

Just wanted to show off my latest creation. money has been so tight that I had to combine old dead planes to keep my habit alive.

1 3C
1 Zagi something cut down
1 8 cell 2400 mah battery
1 550 speed control
1 (new) 05 6 turn cobalt

Thought you whould be amused. It flys great except for a torque roll to the left. any suggestions on how to fix that?

AND I THOUGHT MY ZAGI WAS UGLY! Well im sure its nice and pretty in the air!

By the way, my zagi is very ugly, as are many that have taken abuse. But they keep on flying!

Yea, it rolls great to the left. a little slower to the right.
I am leaving the house now to go to a friends house to cut another wing for this motor, say 60" nice and thin.

ORANATOR,

Left torque. Try shimming your motor, or mount, to give a couple degrees of right thrust. May have to experiment a bit, but you can get rid of the torque.

Thanks Cherry,
But the beast has left this world for a better place, it's valuable componets have helped others.

I have since cut a new wing and powered it with the cobalt and it flys great!
