Here is something different ,6940569406

Look out for the potential to have the same problem the tractor RVJet experiment had. Extreme nose pitch up on launch, almost uncontrollable (sometimes not controllable) until a good airspeed attained.

That's a totally different air frame, it had no nose moment on it, and it's a plank which is very sensitive, if you do not get your thrust angle completely right and your P factor adjustment just right, you can have major problems on planks being pitchy. He might need to put a few washers where the motor mounts to the bracket to get the angle on, but I don't think he's going to have too much problem

Hello Chris,

Did you use the Dragonlink V2 to test your Drak?
Do you recommend getting the DLA V3 Dragonlink instead?

Well I am done with mine except the prop. I may go back thru and shorten a few wires here and there. It weighs about 5 pounds without the batteries.

Hey guys, this thread is being shut down, please use the new build thread. Too many places for info, this will help the focus.
