Hi Sundee, thanks for that, I was planning to laminate but might give it a go.
Cheers

So guys what do we think of the mini drak?

Flight times, characteristics, build time, robustness etc. Is it worth the money?

No regrets from me...

Build time was extended for me but I took my time as I enjoy it
Flight times - 10-15mins on 3300 4S
Every flight ive been moving the lipo back a little - it now rolls ridiculously fast!
Its EZ to launch (100% now)
Super tough - ive bounced it a few times on the nose - no damage
Looks very cool in the air

I flew it in the peaks recently - had a father & sun come over & say 'we saw this flying from over there - that's a drak isn't it?'

For me - flying it low & fast is where it excels - ive heard it described as being 'digital' it just does what you tell it to do - no weird tendencies - my vector is wasted on it - only use it for the home arrow! haha

Awesome Report, you nailed It! Digital predictable and supremely durable. It has the ultimate in performance without being a throwaway performance aircraft. Crash per $ rating extremely High. A 4S 5200 makes it a little more stable in windier conditions but will give you extended flight times. Are you running my power system on it? It's really funny to see you say that's the only reason you have a vector in it it's for the home Arrow. Sometimes I feel the same way. I do love the vector because is so nice to have airspeed Horizon and your amp draw and usage. Otherwise I find myself also flying it pretty much in full manual most of the time. The vector is really nice for takeoff modes and rth. Try it with the 5200 in it this gives you a lot of fun flight time while being in full manual and ripping it on the deck. One thing you'll find is a lot of your proximity inhibitions will go away because of how durable you know the aircraft is. You will get it closer to the ground and be going faster and pushing the limits more than you will with just about anything else. I think the worst I've damaged mine is snapping The Spar when I cartwheeled it at 100 miles an hour. Otherwise  there was really no other  damage .  I know I'm biased but I absolutely love this plane it's a fun factor x 10.
