Default Micro Yak18" is Born

After building and flying the mini yak from www.2dogrc.com I was hooked on building a small full 3mm epp yak style plane.

I took a bunch of pictures of the yak from 2dogrc and draged them into google sketchup.

After some trial and error here is what I came up with.

I call it the Microyak18"

I will post a complete parts list later.

The plane came in a only 1.3oz AUW with the battery pack
I used hot glue to bulid all the foam parts, and some foam safe CA to attach the carbon.

I think I can even save a little more weight if I cut the parts out different as i built the prototype in sections and use a little more glue as I was testing different methods.

The plane is small enough that you could cut the whole wing and middle section as one piece.

I built it using 1.3mm and some 1mm carbon braces and one piece of 3mm x 000.1 flat for the wing spar.
