A semi-scale iconic supersonic fighter-interceptor jet Saab 35 Draken designed by Michael Hammer. With wingspan of 730 mm, length 1092 mm and powered by a 50 mm EDF this hand-launched jet is reasonably cheap to build yet offers a lot of fun in the field. The model files has been updated with seriously lighter LW-PLA version, so you can take advantage of foaming PolyLight filament.
New Light Weight PLA Saab Draken is available. A new Light Weight PLA version of the Saab Draken is now available for download. The Saab Draken files have beeen optimized for LW-PLA printing with minimal travel moves, giving you strong light parts with a bit of after-print cleanup. The files for the LW-PLA version will be included in the PLA version and customers who purchased the original PLA version can do a re-download to access the new files. The LW-PLA Saab Draken model can be powered by the same 4S 50mm FMS EDF and a 4S2200mAh battery. With this setup, the Ready-to-Fly weight is as low as 850g which is a weight reduction of 26% compared to the PLA version. Alternatively, the LW-PLA Saab Draken can be powered by a 3S 50mm FMS EDF and a 3S 2200mAh battery. With this setup, the all-up-weight is 795g which is a weight reduction of 31% compared to the PLA version. The LW-PLA Saab Draken will fly both faster and slower than the PLA version and vertical performance is also improved. Hand launching of the LW-PLA Saab Draken is also easier but it is still recommended to use a catapult/bungee for safe and reliable take offs. The model features a large hatch for easy access to the battery and EDF. The hatch has a hidden locking mechanism that is triggered by moving the dorsal antenna forward. The model comes with a control throw gauge for easy adjusting of the correct movement of the elevons. The battery tray is spring loaded and can be positioned in three different positions making it easy to balance the model correctly at the Center of Gravity.
