Drongo maiden

Took my Drongo out for the maiden flight yesterday on the snow and I am impressed on how well it flies! I just had to give a few clicks of trim but that was it. Very fun and fast plane to fly! It just feels very light in the air and rolls are nice and axial and landings are slow, smooth and predictable. Pretty much vertical performance too!
I am using the same motor as on my Polaris (2212-6) but it appeared to be a bit faster than the Polaris. The weight came in at just about 17 oz. w/ a 2200 3S battery. My Polaris weighs in at about 21 oz. w/ an 1800 3S so that probably explains the speed difference.
