I just measured the static thrust of the Zagi by balancing it on my postal scale, nose down and cranking it up. It’s unbelievable. My skills have improved wildly in the last couple months, I’m able to control the plane much better than I could when I first set it up and the amount of thrust has…. get this…. decreased! I honestly, honestly thought that the motor had broken in and I was getting more thrust, aiding me in my quest for domination of the skies. But nope! A month or so ago, I was getting 12 oz. of thrust out of the motor. The Zagi website makes mention of getting 16 oz. of thrust… I’m getting only 9.5 oz of thrust. And I couldn’t be happier. That’s so strange!
