Dani, it is a Suppo 2212-06 (2200kv). I buy mine here in South Africa. You can also get them under other brand names, like Grayson Hobby.

Hi Marcel,

thanks for the info, just ordered one!

One more question, if you don't mind. Are the wings too flexible, I mean, as the carbon tube is in two pieces, do the wings tend to flex too much on high G turns? did you reinforce the wing junction? Have you tried inverted flights and loopings?

happy landings,

Dani

Dani, I haven't noticed much wing flex at all during smooth aerobatics including inverted flight. The way the wing halves slot together seems to work well.

Thanks Jim,

The Draken and the BD5 can't be more different. One is all wing, the other all fuselage.

Something for the pond is on the burner next

Larry,

This is very subjective, but I found it surprisingly easy to fly. It is stable at the given cg and the controls are effective. It glides well and is easy to land off a flat approach with a bit of power.

The stall seems to be very gentle, but I haven't done much experimenting with it, will try some more on the next flight and report back.

Things to look out for are a gentle trim change with throttle and the relatively high speed if you have a small flying area.

I hope to hear some other opinions soon!

Hope that helps
Marcel

PS. we are at over 5000ft above sea level here if that is of any interest.

I'll be watching for more reports. I am definitely going to build one of these, but I am new to flying and need something gentle. I like the looks a lot so whether on not I can fly it I will build one and some day. I wonder if it would be like most models and a larger one would be easier to fly?

I could probably fly one of those.
