By most estimates, preparation and developing the full-size DRACO needs to have taken years. Entrepreneur Mike Patey — whose extraordinary drive and Back to Work™ ethic have actually inspired thousands of people — accomplished it in simply over 5 months! Mike began with a Wilga 2000, changing its Lycoming O-540 piston engine with a Pratt & Whitney PT6A-28 turboprop boasting about twice the power at half the weight. Lots of additional adjustments followed prior to Mike proudly revealed his "supreme bush plane". It might go to the exact same places as a Carbon Cub, but also climb up twice as quickly; reach altitudes approximately 28,000 feet; and cruise cross-country at 180 MPH while carrying 4 people plus equipment. Modifications from the Wilga were so extensive that the FAA approved Mike's redesign as an experimental exhibition aircraft. The DRACO 2.0m is similarly distinct and impressive — and it's also one of the most highly-engineered, detailed and feature-rich E-flite® aircraft yet!

Influenced by the extraordinary ingenuity and effort Mike Patey put into developing the full-sized aircraft, E-flite® offers the only officially-licensed scale reproduction of the supreme bush plane! The fantastic DRACO 2.0m is one of the most highly-engineered, detailed and feature-rich RC designs ever produced. Beyond its complicated style and the precise shape of its fully-molded, lightweight and resilient EPO airframe with a factory-applied finish, it also includes an abundance of Bonus Scale information consisting of a range of surface functions, actions, 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 Bonus Scale features consist of licensed, scale-like KING shocks on the primary equipment and tail wheel, leading-edge slats, slotted flaps and more. There are also an overall of 17 LEDs throughout the airframe — with a custom-made controller that enables you to select solid, strobing and other light combination options from your transmitter. Extra-large, tundra-style tires on the custom-made carbon fiber primary equipment take in bumps and offer outstanding prop clearance, while the shock-absorbing and steerable tailwheel offers enhanced ground handling — even when cabbing backwards with the optional-use motor reversing (suitable Smart receiver and 7+ channel transmitter needed for reversing).

Factory-installed, metal-geared servos with ball-link equipped and internal linkages deliver crisp, accurate control. The high-power brushless outrunner motor can drive the scale 4-blade prop with a large range of 4000–7000mAh batteries, from a FOUR pack for slow and smooth scale flight to 6S power for better-than-scale vertical efficiency. It's also geared up with a 100-amp Spektrum™ Avian™ Smart ESC, and the BNF® Basic variation consists of an AR637TA Smart receiver that delivers full-range telemetry consisting of real-time battery voltage, current, motor RPM, ESC temperature, and more to suitable AirWare™ geared up transmitters. And even with its massive size and feature-packed style, the DRACO 2.0m can be flight-ready in less time than it takes to charge a battery! No tools are needed for field assembly/disassembly due to the fact that the two-piece wing is secured with quarter-turn thumbscrews. Most importantly, if you've mastered flying at least a couple of previous RC aircraft you can fly the DRACO 2.0m effectively, specifically when taking advantage of the BNF® Basic variation's special AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select innovations. And all of it adds up to offer an unequaled STOL (Short Remove and Landing), scale and beyond flying experience unlike any other!

The Plug-N-Play® (PNP) variation lets experienced modelers pick and utilize their own transmitter, receiver, battery and charger. The Bind-N-Fly® (BNF) Basic variation consists of a Spektrum receiver geared up with AS3X and optional-use SAFE Select innovations so intermediate to experienced modelers can utilize their own transmitter, battery and charger. An ULTIMATE Combination consisting of the BNF Basic variation airplane, a Spektrum transmitter, Smart battery, Smart charger, the unique tools and glue you need for assembly – plus a copy of RealFlight Fitness instructor Edition RC Flight Simulator – is also readily available and conserves you more than $70 compared to acquiring all of the products separately.

Are you new to flying RC (Radio Controlled) aircraft? If you are, we suggest learning to fly with one of our purpose-built fitness instructor aircraft such as the HobbyZone® Carbon Cub S 2. Based on the Carbon Cub zipped Mike's other half, Chandra Patey, it's geared up with special and ingenious SAFE technology that makes it possible for nearly anybody to learn to fly effectively! The Ready-To-Fly (RTF) variation consists of everything needed to fly in one box and is the best choice if you're a new RC pilot.


Mike Patey was born in Gresham, Oregon in addition to his twin sibling Mark, numbers 5 and 6 in an 11 kid household. Maturing in a low-income household, they were 15 when they released their very first|very first} organization together, Deck-It, developing decks for their neighbors in Orem, Utah. Before they finished high school they had developed it into a company with nearly 200 employees. Their effort and drive led them to develop additional companies, effectively developing and selling each one. Today, both continue using their enthusiasm for work to their own companies, Mark with Finest Yanks, and Mike with EcoVap.

Mike is married to his other half Chandra and they have 4 children. Mike's air travel journey began in a 1971 Cessna 172L in 2002 when both Mike and Mark had individually chosen to pursue air travel. In an unusual "twin moment", on the exact same day both had gone to airshows in various states and been inspired to pursue their pilot's license without the other understanding. When they shared their choice by phone, they were so blown away at the coincidence of the entire thing that Mark instantly bought a used 172, and the rest is history.

Mike continues his enthusiasm of flying and air travel while balancing household, work, and neighborhood. "Our moms and dads taught us that if you are blessed with a talent or financial resources you should give to others or you don't deserve it in the first location. We were raised dirt bad but our moms and dads provided anything we had in excess to someone who had less than us." Mike continues to provide his time, talents, and energy to search and save objectives for regional law enforcement, as well as developing the air travel neighborhood through his YouTube channel where he shares his enthusiasm. He is extremely offering of his time and knowledge too, frequently taking some time far from his builds for visitors though he actually simply wants to get "back to work", an expression that has ended up being a tagline for his channel. "Back to Work ways to get after something. I utilize it for my life in general. It implies provide your all, enjoy the process, and strive." A mantra Mike genuinely lives by.

Mike holds several world speed records and has plans to break those records again. From drag cars to hill reaches planes, Mike has always been driven to race things. He likes to construct larger, more powerful, and quicker aircraft, innovating new ideas and making them truths in his builds. Mike's enthusiasm is transmittable, frequently seen chatting with fellow pilots and giggling over new ideas or theories to enhance designs, he is a huge asset to general air travel and has inspired lots of to pursue their imagine flight by making their private pilot's license.

The factory-installed Spektrum™ Avian™ 100-amp Smart ESC and high-power brushless outrunner motor can drive the large-diameter four-blade prop with a large range of batteries. Install a FOUR battery for slow and smooth scale flying, a FIVE battery for included power, or a 6S battery to deliver better-than-scale vertical efficiency. Most importantly you can install a 4000mAh battery to keep the weight and wing filling down, a 5000mAh battery for a great balance of efficiency and handling, or approximately a 7000mAh battery to achieve long flight times approximately 10-15+ minutes.

Bonus Scale Particulars

Extra Scale Details
The DRACO 2.0m includes an abundance of Bonus Scale information consisting of molded-in panel lines, hatches and other surface functions, actions, antennas, wingtip skids, and much more. A clear windshield and windows plus an in-depth cockpit with backlit instrument panel and pilot figure add to the extraordinary scale appearance.
