And the Build starts...
Got a chance today to start the build on my New ZAGI HP 48 inch EPP Wing. They have updated the kits with carbon fiber strips for the top and bottom of the wings to keep the "Ole Zagi Flap" to a minimum. It also has a Plywood main spar that gets reinforced with a carbon fiber strip. Mine came with a roll of Fiber reinforcement tape and two rolls of the colored tape. The hardware kit is very complete including the pushrods, pushrod control clips and plastic control horns, all good quality parts. I had a older Ducted fan laying around that has a great can motor, unsure of the KVA but I am sure it will turn a 5x5 APC on a 4 cell lipo with no problems , going to have to buy a few batteries. So after a bit of surgery it was removed from the fan assembly and now lives in the Zagi. The Plastic parts have all been updated to .060″ Styrene which is definitely stronger! This one should be a fun one to fly... Stay tuned

Well it flew... One round around the patch to get it trimmed in and then I threw the juice to it.... It torque rolled into the top of a tree and made it all the way to the ground. Only damage was one wingtip fin was MIA. The prop even survived!

A all original in the box ZAGI "Fixx"... Even has the ZAGI candy in the parts bags... Looking at trading it back to ZAGI for an updated ZAGI. This one is too brittle to fly but it is a complete kit maybe ZAGI can reproduce a new one out of better foam someday... This one has some repaired damage from being bounced around for a few years......Continue Reading
