Zagi Bash is back for 2017 and to be held at the Bwlch in S Wales on November 19th.

This slope combat event was a great success last year and we hope to repeat that success this year.

So get those EPP slope wings built and come along for another hilariously fun packed day.

would any EPP slope soarer do, or does it have to be a flying wing?

(has an old Synergy epp that needs some air under its wings).

The Phoenix Models EPP Synergy? I used to have one of those. They fly very well but need a bit of a blow to make them aerobatic enough to avoid being clobbered. In a light wind you wouldn't stand a chance as the model isn't manouverable enough really. Also there is a lot more model to get damaged than on a wing.

Chevron wings are cheap enough and I shall be building a Genesis SL from flyingwings, They're only £29.95 plus 2 x standard servos, 4.8v flat mimh pack and a 4ch RX. If you wanted to splash out, you couldn't really do any better than a SAS Wildthing 46". but they are £70, but great flyers.

My Genesis SL from www.flyingwings.co.uk is ready for a test flight and check that the balance is ok.

I have made a modification and dispensed with the usual steel wire elevon control rods, which are vulnerable to damage during combat, and I have replaced them with snakes which have been buried into the foam, and then just exit about 2" from the TE to the control horn, which I have been able to reduce in size and therefore something else less prone to damage, hopefully.

Zagi Bash 2017 is being held at the Bwlch, S Wales next Sunday 19th November. If you can't make it, there will be some video to show you just how much fun you're missing.
