Our Drifter Ultralight is a fun little parkflyer for those that want something a little different.
Featuring EPO and carbon construction this little model not only looks fantastic but she flys very sweetly too and she's much more aerobatic than her looks would have you believe! The Drifter was an instant hit with the Hobbyking product team from the very first test flight.
Easy to fly with great flight times of between 8 - 10 minutes on the supplied 2s 1000mah pack (and being 2s, additional packs are very cheap!).
Supplied with everything required to get the model into the air - with the exception of 4 x AA batteries for the supplied transmitter and glue.
The Drifter is simple to build - literally 30 minutes at most and having a bolt on removable wing makes transportation practical and easy.

This is not for a beginner. I found out the hard way. The tx that came with this model is ok but the throws really needs to be toned down to have a decent flight (for a beginner).
But by golly this bird has survived quite alot of abuse and hard, hard crashes by your's truely. It's relatively heavy compared to others of it's wingspan and so the rods broke, some flew off into the horizon, but it's repairable. Once I've had more experience and a better tx, it's a joy to fly.
I've recently tested the power system with 3s and everything was ok and screaming (4 flights and counting). Simple aerobatics is assured.
