I guess this is where I come in.....

The Draken is a joy to fly.... It behaves really nice with no bad tendencies.
We have reduced the ailerons but haven't flown it 2nd time yet. I'm looking forward to get it in the air again and get to know it a bit better.

My MBS draken flys very much like this one, a little roll touchy. What did you guys use for expo and throws on this test flight?

the last flight of my Draken


never use to thin wires for an Y connection .

the last flight of my Draken (2 min 31 sec)


But the good side is ... now i have room for building one more
and i am impressed by the strength of the construction .
only the 2 servos stayed in place
the lipo's ended up as 2/3 of normal length.
Claus
PS it is as usual Kenneth Larsen that's the video man .

What a tragedy! Looks like it flew beautifully though.

Ouch. I learned a lot about foam construction from watching you build this.
