Zagi 400X vs Boeing 737-400


I know that I am going to catch a lot of flack for this, but as you all know.. I am a toublemaker. We were out flying in a buddie's field today. He lives right off the end of the local airport runway. We fly there all the time and always have a safety observer to watch for full scale traffic. Anyway, I spotted a UAL 737 on approach. I orbitted off to the West untill he had passed. I then positioned my Zagi behind him. I wanted to give my fellow flyers a lesson in the phenomenon known as wake turbulance. The horizontal "tornadoes" off the wingtips of the airliner tossed my 400X around like a piece of newspaper in a wind storm. This all occured at aproximate altitude of two to three hundred feet AGL, so I had plenty of time to recover. Quite interesting to see the invisible aerodynamic powers at work!.... OK, now let me have it...

I think I'll just step back 20 paces and watch.
