That's what I've been saying all along. It's good to finally see some sensible people here on RCGroups. It didn't use to be that way

No. Nothing's ever simple.

What if you need to defeat the spider-man villain Venom? The scream of a pusher would be useful then. And say an ICBM is heading towards your hometown, or an asteriod towards Earth? A zagi could take care of that with a head-on collision. These things also make for an effective and exiting alternative for hotel wake-up calls. And what if you need to aerate the soil in your lawn? Crash your zagi into it and pull it back out, repeat until the soil is loosened. And, speaking from personal experience, once one has attained sufficient mastery of the piloting of these craft, they can perform an excellent and comfortable shave or haircut.

wing pilots are the equivalent of snowboarders in the alpine environment. Most large ski areas had a BAN on snowboarders in the 80's

And now they're mainstream. Kinda scary, huh?

Are Zagis loud?

WHAT? I CAN"T HEAR YOU!

After...
... standing over an unmuffled screaming Baby Bee on a 1/2 control line plane back in the '60s - no one complained of the noise when flying from the school yard back then, and it always drew a couple dozen polite kids from the neighborhood. Now you can't fly at the school yard, everyone complains about noise, and the kids are rude and unruley.
... going to rock concerts in the '70s.

Zagis seem quiet. EITHER THAT OR I CAN"T HEAR ANY MORE!

I will have you know, good sir, that the shade helps to cover up our low-hanging trousers. It is a serious and sometimes fatal medical condition.

Every single one.

If you scratchbuild, then you're out of luck.

That explains my sunburned rear, I haven't ordered a kit yet. For now I'll just cut the bill off a cap and see if I can sew it onto the back. Might look a bit raggedy, but I guess that's okay.
