Yes, its for the Dragon Rapide. My Rascal C was the older kit so I used the motor that came with it so I used with a Electrifly ESC and a 7.4V e-flite 800 mHh battery.

I'm a big fan of Pat Tritle designs. Many are sold as Dare kits by Brodak and some are sold as "short kits" by Manzano Lazer Works, now under new ownership. I have built the Cessna 120/140 and loved it, beefed up wing with carbon rod, was very aerobatic and very easy to fly. I kit bashed the Stinson SR-10 Reliant into an SR-7 highly detailed Pepsi-Cola PR aircraft, weighs 4lbs,about double weight of Pat's prototype "floater", I am starting Pat's 60" wsp DC-3, will be in AA Flagship Detroit livery. Also have an Ercoupe kit in the queue.

Brodak has some tempting kits. I have been looking at Pat's Sky King Songbird for some time. The B-25, Mosquito, Super Constellation (another PT design), and DC-6 are also tempting.

Like you, I too have control problems. I am presently working on a LDS short kit for a free-flight B-36 that I am converting to 4 ch. R/C. I have the LDS short kit of a B-727 under way. And, I am converting Dumas's H-4 Spruce Goose static display 30" ws model to 4-ch R/C. No control issues here with me.

Right now I'm in the middle of a double build to surprise my grandsons at Christmas. I built the design when it was first published in 1974.
