Zagi Flight Question

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I fly my Zagi at full power, trimmed, straight and level. Then when I cut power, it requires a lot of up elevator in order to glide at a reasonable rate. Is it normal for the Zagi to have a wide range of trim from full power to no power?

The most common fix for this is to add downthrust in the motor, if possible. Try adding a bit of downthrust, and see if the condition improves. If it does, add more a bit at a time until it is nuetral across the power range.

remember that the zaggi is a pusher so you will ant to put shims under the front of the motor

I own a Zagi-X and have not encountered the problem you are experiencing, at full throttle and none. I did the glide test after building it with no power on to trim as per the instructions. If you built the Zagi correctly, with the motor cradle built in as part of the top canopy, angle set and all, why you have this problem is weird. The CG checked out OK?
