Dazi - Coroplast Wing

I just found this great site with the Dazi coroplast plans and pictures, and wanted to link to it for those others out there that may not know about it. Anyone who has built one of these, please let us know how they fly. Also, if you added a motor, please let us know what motor/battery setup is the best. THANKS!

P. S. Thanks for the great, new FLYING WINGS forum!

I saw that site before but I can't find a source for 2mm or 3mm coroplast in BC, Canada so I haven't been able to build one yet but they sure look interesting, especially the translucent one with lights!

Cool site. The plans would also work with fan fold foam if you tape the back of the bending point and work the crease into the material.

they fly well on the slope, with 4mm coroplast and standard gear. much more effecient than a mugi!!!
of course, my beetle from http://rcsail.com/beetle.htm will WAY outpace them on any time, and stays up when they are struggling. (nudge nudge, wink wink--big hint here)

Dazi

Bret,
I built a 4 mm dazi and it was a heavy beast. I had to add a nose to get the battery out front for balance. Next I built a Spaggi (similar but a 56inch wingspan) out of 2mm. Weight was 34 oz. The CG was OK with a little ballast up front, but performance was sluggish. My third was a Dazi out of 2mm, 29 oz, tp 2100 battery, Zagi reverse 400 motor. Best flyer yet, but really needs a brushlesss motor for good performance. I have a picture of mine on this forum, look under http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=258491
The coroplast is a easy to make wing with a great built in finish. Take care folding however, because its easy for unintended creases to appear along the flute lines. Got a brushless, go for it!

Hi fellow Dazi nerds!

Here is my contribution to the video archives! I love my Dazi!

I build it light - 2mm correx - AUW 550g

Great for those lighter days on the slope
