Title: Zingo +
Post by: Scottl0413 on April 21, 2018, 04:51:39 PM
Well built a new A/B classic plane with a lot of pwr. for a 440 sq. in plane. Attached are photos of my new Zingo +! The + is for the change from the normal rectangular stab to a maverick stab!! Pwr. is a K&B 3.25/3.5, ready to fly weight is 608 grams (21 ozs.). Waiting on the winds here in the south east to quite down so I do trimming!#$%&

Well traveled to Palm Bay Fl, last weekend for some flying and trimming time. Zingo was good and Bad it seems to handle the pwr. of the K&B 3.25 but on the 5th flight it decided to make a hard right turn under pwr. and snapped the wing in half!#$%^ Broke right where I stopped the carbon fiber dihedral re-enforcement!! Will fix and carry on with the trimming process.
