Set her up correct - she flies nice. Rolls are near axial as you can get with very little input of rudder needed etc.

Makes a very nice aerobatic machine. 3D ? Mines a touch too heavy with the oversize motor.... and 2200 LiPo .....

If I was building it again - I would stick with the Hobby King recc'd max.

The Yak now has a Hobby eagle A3 Super II fitted and I am going to start pushing her hard to see if she will action out 3D. All the calculations indicate she should. 2.4 to 1 Power to weight ... large surfaces ... good CoG ... etc.

Lets see ...

Old thread ... she should get an outing tomorrow at new site ... hopefully with some Soloshot footage ....

She's still all together in one piece .... so fingers crossed she comes home same way !

Apoligies for Photobucket fouling up all photos ... if any section / photos wanted - just ask and I'll look through the PC archive ..
