Ritewing Mini Drak

Available at ReadyMadeRC and other retailers, the Mini Drak is a smaller version of the high-performance Ritewing Drak. It's designed to go fast and stay aloft for longer, all while retaining excellent slow speed handling characteristics.


A Pint-Sized Version of the Drak

The majority of fixed-wing FPV jockies have seen or heard about the high-performance Drak FPV airplane from Ritewing; an EPP monster with impressive flight characteristics at any speed. Not only does the Drak fly 90+ straight and level, but it slows down nicely for controlled landings and is rather easy to hand launch. Now, Chris Klick at Ritewing has finally introduced the much anticipated Mini Drak to fill the "easy to launch, easy to transport" void left by it's behemoth big brother.

The Mini Drak sports a much more manageable 40" wingspan with roughly 550 square inches of wing area; with a price tag of $175, it's also much more friendly on your finances than the big Drak. Constructed of high density EPP, the Mini Drak features 12 fiberglass strip spars for added rigidity, and 2-piece carbon fiber tube spars that allow the wings to be removed for transport. The center section has plenty of room inside for 4s LiPo's in the 3300mAh and up range, and the Ritewing Secret Sauce 1700 motor and esc combo can be had for around $125.

As it's moulded in Germany I wonder if there's scope for somebody putting kits together there for sale in Europe? Shipping from the US plus tax & import duty on top is a killer over here. You would obviously save the cost of shipping the bulky foam components from Germany to the US too.

I have the ZIII, it's a solid performer, but the Mini Drak will be a little more efficient in flight.

That foam reminds of that really tough foam from my Funjet Ultra. Good stuff.

From your video I can't tell how you launched it.

Is there an outside view video. Sorry but PFV videos don't tell me anything of how it flies.
