Default Why is the Crack Yak so awesome?

What is it that the Crack Yak does or has that makes it so awesome? I actually want to know....

I have built from plans, from eyeball ruler and calculator, nitroplanes kits, and Griffwerks flat foamies.... Depron, Dollar Tree foam, Home Depot foam, and EPP. There is a huge difference in flight characteristics in all of them.

The best of any of those is the Griffwerks one so far, and I can see the same or more qualities in even the smallest Crack Yak.

Why

Because they are very carefully designed and thoroughly tested and built in a factory in the Czech republic by people who really care. I happen to know one of the designers (Cody), so I have a little bit of an idea how much work goes into this.

Have you tried the Beaver, BTW? It's a blast!

The beaver does not really get to me, but yes I can see the quality in those too.
I am new to much of the consideration of high quality gear.

I first experienced it with Extremeflight Airframes.

To compare, the Tech One Yak is great. I love it, but it can not fly nearly as well as my Griffwerks did.

That said, I see tons the crack yak can do that I know there is no way either of those will do. (There have to be rigidity, throw, and crazy balance tuning things in place on that plane.)
