JP 480-SI Electric 48inch (122cm) (ZAGI)
from J Perkins

Due to popular demand the JP 480-Si has now been re-introduced!
Still regarded as one of the best flying wings ever produced because of its flying attributes and durability.
What makes the JP 480-Si such a favourite?
Fast and Easy to build. There are only 4 parts to glue together so build time is very fast!
Covering
Each kit comes with 1 roll of coloured tape. Most people like to personalise their flying wings.
Building for strength and durability
The 480-Si built in the stock format is a lightweight flying wing designed to fly slow with very little power, however, the 480-Si can also be built to a much stronger format and can help in the advent mid-air collisions and such likes! Adding strips of Glassweave tape from wingtip to wingtip before covering, increases the strength considerably. 25mm Glassweave tape is normally fine but 50mm Glassweave can be used for maximum strength, but remember, a heavier model is harder to launch!
Power
The recommended motor and prop combination has been matched to optimise the flight performance of the 480-Si, Other 480 caned motors can be used.
Lights
The 480-Si is the ideal platform for adding lights and enjoying night flying. LED SMD strips are available and can be easily added while building your wing. You can make your lights switchable by operating and powering them through a small 5-10A speed controller.
