The Hobbyking Dragon Red Racer offers high speed thrills for low speed money and amazingly for a composite high performance speed machine, it is Plug N Fly so all the hard work is done.
The airframe is composed of a Fiberglass fuselage AND wing, which is a removable 1pc item, only the horizontal stabilizer/elevator are balsa. The finish is quite superb in a durable deep gloss red, there is no doubt, it looks fast, which is just as well, it IS fast! A model this quick needs to be well built and no corners have been cut, aileron push rods are ball linked and high torque 9g servo's have been pre-fitted throughout, all the included hardware is sturdy and good quality for reliability and performance.
The pre-fitted brushless inrunner motor has plenty of power and coupled with such a slippery air frame, huge grins are going to be the order of the day at your field. The prop and a spare are included as is the quality alloy spinner, so your radio, a lipoly and a couple of hours work at the most are all that stands between you and some high speed action. The Hobbyking Dragon Red offers an unbeatable combination of low price, quality, good looks, practicality, ease of assembly, durability and of course awesome performance, it's a must for speed freaks!

Verarbeitung na ja!? Ich vermute, dass der Kleber beim aushrten brchig wird. Das fallt mir jetzt bei mehreren Fiberglasmodellen von Hobbyking auf. Sobald diese einen kleinen Schlag bekommen, platzt das Modell in Form von kleinen Rissen auf, der Lack platzt ab. Die Abdeckung fr den Akku-Schacht ist nicht durchdacht. Das Flugbild an sich war gut.When I put the plane together I noticed that the fuse was twisted. The plane seems to be affected by this in flight. Stil waiting for a new fuse that they would send me.
Finish (paintjob) is fine and I get around 3 min of flight time on a nanotech 1000 mAh 3s if I am taking it easy with the trottle.
Speed is more or less 140 km/h on straight level. (radargun)
Friend of mine got it at the same time also with the twisted fuse and therefor low rating on quality.Ma premire impression est bonne sur la qualit des lments mais hlas cela nest quune illusion, les vis de fixation de laile ne sont pas centr ce qui fait que laile est dcal par rapport au fuselage et de plus ne jointe pas correctement sur le fuselage, les servos des ailes sont trop pais ce qui fait que les caches sont inutilisable et enfin la prise pour la batterie de propulsion est inadapt plutt choisir des PK pour gagner de la place.Ma premire impression est bonne sur la qualit des lments mais hlas cela nest quune illusion, les vis de fixation de laile ne sont pas centr ce qui fait que laile est dcal par rapport au fuselage et de plus ne jointe pas correctement sur le fuselage, les servos des ailes sont trop pais ce qui fait que les caches sont inutilisable et enfin la prise pour la batterie de propulsion est inadapt plutt choisir des PK pour gagner de la place.I ordered this plane. After waiting long time (30 days), I saw on my account it was written as not claimed. Never I got a notice it arrived in my country, even on the order in my account there was no information the plane arrived at least at a post office in Hong Kong. Of course, Hobbyking did NOT inform me of the "returned" plane. And the tracking number NEVER showed any results neither on Hong Kong Track and Trace nor Swiss Track and Trace. Well, if I don't ship an airplane and afterwards I don't refund postage, it's a not too bad business as well. Loss: about 50 US$I received this and was shocked at the quality i dont know quite where to start! from the front the motor is prefitted esc pre soldered cool but i did manage to squeeze a himodel 1300mah 3s lipo in however it was a squeeze but everything fits. The battery esc cover did not have the rod going through as described so it will have tape to keep it on :/ Next the whole plane had a big warp and mis aligned the wing with the tail absolutely rubbish the elevator was far to femer which snapped when i was hinging! The paint is pretty bad too it is cheap and flakes off in patches and scratched far too easy. onto the wing the servo hatches dont fit correctly actually catch on the servo. Elevator control rod had been pushed inside the fuz which was a huge pain to get out the snake should have been all the way through or at lest through a couple more stays inside the fus not just glued to the inside as it was lucky i noticed it was loose or you would have no elevator control. to sum up if you still buy one CHECK EVERYTHING this is not plug and play it requires a lot of workyeah un racer en fibre avec de bonne performances avec des lipos 3S seulement.. beau rapide et precis mieux qu'un rasoir gilette :DAt first when I opened the package I was impressed by the very nice and sturdy high gloss pained fiberglass body and wings. But then I started to look closer. First of the wing does not fit the main body. Screw holes in the wing are misaligned with the body and the curvature in the body mount is wrong for the wing. One of the wing servos was also not properly glued and came off when I inspected it. I was also a bit surprised that the rear wing was not installed and has to be epoxied (manual says to use CA, but good luck with that...). After all this is marketed as a PNF pylon. Lastly the recommendation says 1000-1300mah 3S but does not mention any dimensions. I can tell you right now that there is no way a 1300mah will fit. There is about 25x25x80mm of room for the battery with the ESC tucked under it. You will also need a mini receiver to be able to fit it behind the elevator servo. So to sum it all up.This PNF pylon is going to be A LOT of work.A very nice plane. Built it was quite fast. Though the "horns" did not conceive me the in the way they seem to have been planned to fix: they did not seem to fix very well. However, I managed to make them work stable. The plane looks great, but the wing was not automatically in a right angle to the fuselage. I had to put some tape on one side of the fuselage to gain 2mm which helped to be in a right angle. Finally, the plane looked awesome. I only had a Zippy 11.1V 800mAh 20C at home. This is not really to recommend. The plane did not achieve a good speed. Twice I had to do an emergency landing after about 100 meters of flight. But I imagine, with the recommended 11.1V 1000mAh 30C batteries everything should run better. However, it's a nice plane - though I do not expect it to be rocket-fast, no matter which battery you use.Ordered 4 days ago, received this morning with a nice final surprise gift of custom tax for 40 !
The plane is very nice, good quality. The red color is perfect , glossy.
It is very very small.. I would say it is a bit overpriced at 150 usd ( 40 usd EMS ( 60 usd french tax )))
I ordered it because I had already several 1300 3S, but none of them will fit, fuselage is too tight.
Assembly is just few minutes. I just need to find the correct lipo to fit in !!
