Nice looking bipe.
Looks like landing in that field will be a problem.

Thanks guys. I was pretty proud of how it turned out and how well it flew.

I did see Chellie's post about her landing gear she put up about the same time this happened.

Will just beef up better bended/joints in my light metal landing gear.

That field is pretty rough right now, but still happy with these first few flights, be happier with better weather now, lol.

Isn't it strange that Santa doesn't seem to like to bring RC Supplies?
He didn't make it here either!

Ok got the Yak55 finished and did the maiden this morning.
First flight was quite wild and upon landing the hot glue let loose on the motor mt.
Re glued the motor and went back out for a second flight but the wind had gotten
a lot stronger and it grabbed the Yak and slammed it into a tree trunk.
Quite a bit of damage but i will repair it with Foam Tac and hot glue and fly it again.
Not today though. Here is a pic before the second maiden.
