wonderful, but why you use the "elevons" in reverse position? works better or simple stetics. (please, perdon for my english)

I found that color makes no difference when the sun goes down anyway. When there is no light to reflect the colors, oh boy watch out when trying to keep orientation on your Zagi =)

I'm sorry but I'm not really understanding your question. My elevons are mounted exactly how the Zagi instructions say to mount them. Is there a different way to mount the elevons?

Yes, most Zagis that I have seen have the elevons mounted with the wide part at the tips and the narrow part at the center.

Hmm, what would be the benefit to mounting your elevons that way? It seems that the control horns would have a small area to be mounted on. Also, being that the tips are the lightest part of the plane, it would make no sense for the widest part of the elevon to be mounted towards the outer tip. Oh well, to each his own.

Faster roll rate, that's the benefit.
