I purchased this MSB Drakken http://www.mbs-rcmodels.se/ kit on RC Universe for half the price, thank God
Not an easy build: lot of little balsa sticks, the quality is very good but I think a good set of plan will help the builder a lot.. I made some major mistake , but " c'est la vie"
The Drakken is fit with mini retract : air up and down.
5 2200 20C cells ( cheap) and a 70 mm Het fan and a Typhon 2w30
70 Amps controller .
5 servos: rudder, tracking, retract valve and 2 for elevons.
The intake are soft plastic , i added carbon tow , trust and exaust tube are 1/64 plywood roll( not in the kit)
I made 3 access doors under the fuselage : fan, cells and retract and servo tracking in the front.
I will have small door for front landing gear and just opening for main gear, I have some nice spring strut for the weels.
here fews pics, the fairing @ the back is not scale, I plank the former instead forming balsa....
I will cover the plane with light fibreglass .60 once .......
hatch latch is done .
Cover bottom with .75 once...Continue Reading
