The Yak looks good and gets some good reviews. I don't think you could go far wrong for the price.

I love my Hobbyking EPP Yak 55! All 3D I learned I did it on this model. And I still continue enjoying flying it after two years, so much so that I have two of them!

I know there are several successful prop/motor/esc/battery combinations, but here is mine:

1. 11 x 5.5 APC prop
2. Aerodrive SK3 3536 1050 kv motor
3. Hobbyking BlueSeries 40A ESC
4. 1800 mah 3S 25 C batteries from Yellow Jackets

These batteries are not always in stock (I just checked and they are not) but Mr. Breuer is extremely active and is reprenishing his stock constantly.

I will post the links to these articles below.

Hope this helps!
