The 48 inch Zagi THL flying wing is made of resilient expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam and reinforced with carbon fiber spars. The Zagi THL has a high lift, low drag profile. Flying weight is only 14 ounces providing a loading of only 4.1 oz/ft2 including receiver and 1600 mAh battery pack.

The Zagi THL flies well in light slope lift or small hills. The testing for this model was done on a 30 foot berm at the beach in Southern California. The Zagi THL flying wing will fly at about 5 MPH and penetrates in winds to 15 MPH. The design objectives were to make a rugged, low cost, light weight wing for light slope lift, thermal and hand launch applications.
