If I can remember correctly, I beleive that I had to set my radio up for a "V Tail" operation. Mind you, this was with a JR radio....

i managed to sync them now, but the last thing im not sure about is - for the plane to tilt to the left / does the left flap go up or down?

Knowing me ill get it wrong way around lol

I always looked at it like this.

ALieron stick to the right, the right control surface should be deflected upwards..
for the plane to tilt to the left / does the left flap go up or down?
The left flap would have to go up.

Have fun with your new Zagi.. They are a blast... Been through a couple of them myself. Last one I had, I cracked it in half like 3-4 times before it was worthy enough of throwing away..

Zagi on 9c
If you haven't already got it, go into the second menu screen and select ELEVON. change it from "INH" to "ACT". The way mine is set up, I have "AIL 1" 100% "AIL 2" 100% "ELE 1" -100% and "ELE 2" +100%
Hope this helps.

As far as movement, Grant is right. The flap flap should move up in the direction your stick is, ie. left stick input, left flap should be up.

Enrolled full time A&P school... No time for flying :-(

On the bright side, if its not set up exactly right, it will probably survive the crash lol.

My dad and brother when they were first test flying their new zagi, couldnt figure out why it kept heading for the ground.... Hmm..Lets see.. Maybe it wasnt trimmed out... They are usually pretty smart, but this time it was pretty funny to see them keep sending the thing into the ground.. Trim, whats trim..

An easy way to make sure that its half way trimed before you send it up would be to set it down flat on a table. Make sure that the bottom of the wing and the control surface are about level. This should give you a half way decent starting period.. I do believe that the manual makes reference to this as well..
