Prop in slot Saab Draken - Plans (6mmFlyRC)
So, I’ve been working on this design for a 6mm Depron, profile, prop in slot Saab Draken.
This jet is designed in the size and style of build that I like.
The dimensions are:
Span: 26” (660mm)
Length: 40.5” (1029mm)
Flying weight with 2200mah battery: 17.75oz (503g)
Motor: 2212-06 (2200kv)
Prop: APC 6x4E
2 Servos on the elevons only.
It should be an easy build so I’m hoping to have the prototype flying by the end of the weekend. If there is any interest, I’ll post plans once any snags are sorted out.
CG position 0.5" (13mm) in front of wing break.

Optional underwing pylons shown in post #54

This jet is available as a kit from www.6mmflyrc.com.
A 17" span version is available from www.nicohobbies.com, where there is also an excellent build guide from crxmanpat as a free download.

Well, I had two very successful flights this morning and it looks like this thing will be a lot of fun!
As could be expected, it rolls like a drill and seems to be capable of extremely high angles of attack.
The prototype weighs 16.75 ounces (475g) ready to fly but without paint, using a 2200mah battery.
I had the CG at 1” (25mm) in front of the wing break, which seems to be a good stable position.
Plans and build pics will be up soon.
Thanks for the interest.

Now, if there were any way to make it sound like a real one
A Draken doing a low pass during a show was one of the high points of life when I was a kid.
Those "intakes" look pretty good for such a simple design. That is always the spot I complain about when I see a Draken model....
