A Touch of Carbon Fiber

A Touch of Carbon Fiber

This Zagi hack comes from Gordon Arrendale also from Washington via California. Like all Zagi flyers, Gordon has an interesting background. He spent six years building custom surfboards in San Diego before moving to Washington in April of 2016. When he was introduced to RC wings, he was immediately interested in it and of course, giving his wing his own custom touch.

“I moved to Washington to get back in touch with my outdoorsman side. Looking for surfboard work in rural Washington is pretty hard, so I found some work locally with a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) company building carbon fiber parts,” Gordon said.

He learned the basics of UAV construction and wanted to learn more about the systems.

“I was directed to check out the FPV options of RC airplanes by a coworker. He has been flying his own handmade FPV planes and showed me a few videos. I was hooked after seeing a few low flying videos, he said.

With that, he began learning the basics of flying with a Zagi HP from his coworker.

“He told me that it’s a great plane and will survive almost any beginners learning curve. Luckily, I listened to him and purchased it and have been satisfied with the quality and performance of the Zagi,” he said.

He purchased the wing in the winter and took his time building and customizing it. First, he applied a matte white vinyl over the top and bottom so he could airbrush a custom look instead of using the vinyl tape we supply.

“It added a bit of unnecessary weight but with the high powered motor of the HP, it wasn’t an issue to worry about,” he said.

He also created stronger winglets by wrapping an 1/8″ balsa core in carbon fiber and trimmed them to match shape of the plastic winglets.

“To match the carbon winglets, I painted the center hatch of the battery bay flat black. I later made a custom fiberglass camera fairing to sit on top of the battery bay that would hold the camera and transmitter/antenna to make the zagi hp convert easily from FPV or normal RC flying mode,” he said. He first flew it last spring.

“I’m very satisfied with the outcome of the Zagi HP and have recently passed it down to another beginner,” Gordon said. “Lately, I’ve been building a full carbon slope glider and working hard to finish it up to go fly it around the ridges here in the Columbia Gorge before it gets too wet.”
