Mr NCT submitted a new resource:

DR1 150% - 36" Wing span highly modified MM DR1 with Shaped Wings and Ailerons

This is version 3 of scaling the FT MM DR1 to 150%. It's made for a Power Pack C and a 2200ma 3s battery. You can build it with folded wings like the Sportster or shape the wings like the master series. I used shaped aluminum tube for the cabanes so that I could conceal the servo wires from the upper wing though you can build with plywood and glue the wires to them. I made the cockpit turtle deck a removable hatch and mounted the receiver tray below it for easy access. The cowl is made...

Hi Matthew. With the flat wing the ailerons work great. As I mentioned in the description I’m flying it with an Aura 5 light until my flying skills catch up with the airplane. If you’re not flying it with an aura I recommend dual rates and expo because with the flat wing it does not self stabilize.
And to answer your first question, yes you should absolutely build it!

On version #1 I just did a150% version of the MM DR1 with the stock dihedral & wing shape but added ailerons. The ailerons were totally ineffective even when I put them on the middle wing also. On version #2 I went to a straight wing and it flew well so that's where I left it. If you do put some dihedral in I wouldn't give it a lot. Let me know how it works.
