Welcome

A little about yourself. Any flying past or present? Building skills? Thinking skills
Maybe an ARF would be thought?

What kind of glider flying would you like to do? Thermal? Slope?

That helps a bunch...What part of the world are you located? That will make a difference as Jasbury is asking. Why build a sloper with no slopes? I know what you mean about ARFs and building our own.

Epoxi,

You said you wanted to build a flying wing like a Zagi. Here is a great website with plans. I have built one of these and flew the heck out of it for a while.

You have some locals over there that are regular posters in the slope sites. You may be able to hook up with them.

If you're an experienced power flyer, you can probably handle a Zagi type. However, would you rather build with foam, glass over foam, or built up wood??

Lots of plans here:

On a day when the wind was not very strong, the Mirage from that site might be a good choice, though you won't be doing aerobatics.

For somewhat higher winds, if you can find the plans from a Dynaflight Talon kit, you might enjoy that. I've seen other people have a lot of fun with one. For that matter, the kit is cheap.

I'm not really up on slope gliders, though, so other people may have better suggestions.
