April Update

P.S. Spektrum RX DSM-2 Brownout caused Crash and Burn and subsequent rebuild...see last three pics.

New addition to the Squadron...Thanks Terry!...Easy Tiger Models Saab J-35 Draken...3S-1300, 64mm EDF and it's a screamer! 20" wingspan and a more than 1 to 1 thrust ratio. I had to put aileron travel @ 60% and 60% aileron expo but after that it flew great without twitching (pilot problem not model problem).

It's a Swedish design and this model was for the 1000th anniversary of Austria.

Here are a few pics:

Yes, after a nose dive

Flying along straight and level at about 30 feet and suddenly had a brown-out on DSM2 Spektrum rx and it nose dived. The motor was running all the way to the ground but no control. When I found the plane the elevators were both full up so it reconnected just as it hit the ground and then ejected the battery. I pieced the 5 or 6 pieces of the nose back to what you saw in the pic. Will probably fly it this weekend and see how it does.
