The E-flite DRACO 2.0m BNF Basic Electric Airplane is the only officially-licensed scale replica of the ultimate bush plane! Mike Patey's amazing DRACO 2.0m is one of the most highly-engineered, detailed and feature-rich RC models ever produced. Beyond its complex design and the accurate shape of its fully-molded, lightweight and durable EPO airframe with a factory-applied finish, it also features an abundance of Extra Scale details including a variety of surface features, steps, antennas, wingtip "stinger" skids, and much more. The clear windshield and windows offer an excellent view of the detailed cockpit with pilot figure and backlit instrument panel. Functional Extra Scale features include licensed, scale-like KING shocks on the main gear and tail wheel, leading-edge slats, slotted flaps and more. There are also a total of 17 LEDs throughout the airframe — with a custom controller that allows you to select solid, strobing and other light combination options from your transmitter. Oversized, tundra-style tires on the custom-made carbon fiber main gear soak up bumps and provide excellent prop clearance, while the shock-absorbing and steerable tailwheel offers improved ground handling — even when taxiing backward with the optional-use motor reversing (compatible Smart receiver and 7+ channel transmitter required for reversing).

Factory-installed, metal-geared servos with ball-link equipped and internal linkages deliver crisp, precise control. The high-power brushless outrunner motor can drive the scale 4-blade propeller with a wide range of 4000–7000mAh batteries, from a 4S pack for slow and smooth scale flight to 6S power for better-than-scale vertical performance. It's also equipped with a 100-amp Spektrum Avian Smart ESC, and the BNF Basic version includes an AR637TA Smart receiver that delivers full-range telemetry including real-time battery voltage, current, motor RPM, ESC temperature, and more to compatible AirWare equipped transmitters. And even with its large-scale size and feature-packed design, the DRACO 2.0m can be flight-ready in less time than it takes to charge a battery! No tools are required for field assembly/disassembly because the two-piece wing is secured with quarter-turn thumbscrews. Best of all, if you've mastered flying at least one or two previous RC aircraft you can fly the DRACO 2.0m successfully, especially when taking advantage of the BNF Basic version's exclusive AS3X and optional-use SAFE Select technologies. And it all adds up to offer an unmatched STOL (Short Take Off and Landing), scale and beyond flying experience unlike any other!

The Bind-N-Fly® (BNF) Basic version includes a Spektrum receiver equipped with AS3X and optional-use SAFE Select technologies so intermediate to experienced modelers can use their own transmitter, battery and charger. If you are new to flying RC Airplanes, it is recommended that you learn to fly with a purpose-built trainer aircraft such as the HobbyZone Carbon Cub S 2. It's equipped with exclusive and innovative SAFE technology that makes it possible for almost anyone to learn to fly successfully!

E-flite DRACO 2.0m BNF Basic Electric Airplane w/AS3X & SAFE Select
Fantastic aircraft. Think of the first time you had Coca Cola as a child. The sudden surprise of the carbonated fizz. You have had all kinds of different sweetened and flavored drinks like lemonades and tea. But the first time you had fizz coke, you will never forget. That's what Draco is to the RC flying world, you have flown the mellow planes like an Apprentice, or maybe you flew a homemade wing, or a quadrcopter. But the Draco just hits different. Its the full package, it's a unique experience.

Mike Patey is one of the most inspirational aviators of the 21st century, and his aircraft the Draco likewise one of the most iconic aircrafts of the same century. So it was extremely exciting for me when I heard that I would actually be able to someday fly my own personal Draco.

Happy flying, God Bless you and God Bless America.
