got an email from Rusty today, the MK2 has been shipped to Canada and should be here in 6 - 10 days... in the meantime, I'm going to order everything I need.

thanks again
Hi HighFlyer Thats great to hear that Rusty sent your plane out to you, the Yak 55 looks about the same, both should be great fliers, I will look for a motor for you at your local Hobby shop, follow my build Thread on the Maveric Cap, and use some thin bass wood on the front bottom of the plane, it helps to keep the nose from breaking off, incase of a hard landing, and use some clear packing tape on the top and bottom of the wing, end to end, to make the wing stronger, Take care, Chellie

This motor will work well for you, its a little expensive, but was about the least expensive one they had at your local Hobby Shop,

get some 9x3.8 props for this motor, those will be best to start with, Everything is a little expensive at your local Hobby shop, if your willing to shop overseas, you can save a lot of money, Chellie

The first motor that Chellie has the link for the rimfire 22M is the one I had on my first Yak which is the same size plane and I could get unlimited verical with an 8 amp ESC.

May I suggest that you not use the 1200 or larger ma batteries on that peticular plane. I have those in my yak now and I am not liking the response of the plane at all with the heavy batteries. The rolls are ugly and wing flex is bad from the extra weight and if you have a bad landing the extra force from the weight will create more damage.

A 640 to 910 ma is a good size battery match for that size plane and with a 22M size motor and an 8-12amp esc you should get about 10-12 min flight time, which is good. You would have an incredible flight time with the large batteries but it wouldn't be as much fun to fly IMHO.

The 22M will draw a constant 11 amps so to get the optimum performance you would need an ESC that will deliver at least that much current and a lipo that has large enough discharge rate that it will not overheat or become damaged. The way to determine the battery discharge rate that you need is:

battery ma x C rating = discharge rating
so a 11.2v 800ma 15C battery will be able to discharge at 12 amps
.800ma x 15C = 12 amps

This battery has the right voltage and a good ma rating but I do not see a discharge rate. You may be able to call them and if it is a 15C it would be a good size for your plane. And about 1/2 the weight of the 1240ma :-)

Prop size Chellie suggested is what I am running and is a good size. You don't need alot of pitch on the prop with that plane.

Hi Again The Yak may be a little different design than the Mavrick MK2, I am able to fly the Mavrick Cap with up to a 3 cell, 1800mah 20c lipo, and it flys very well, the 1300mah is a nice compromise between a 1000mah lipo and a 1800mah lipo, the MK2 is a little bigger plane than the Mavrick Cap and Mavrick II , so the 1300mah will be a nice fit, and give a decent flight time, also it will need the weight of the 1300mah to get the CG, with out having to add any extra weight to the nose, the 1300mah zippy lipo is made by LoongMax, and they are both great lipos, I just bought 3 of the 3 cell 1300mah 20C lipos, for 14.95 ea,
the E Flight 800mah lipo is 39.99 for one, Ouch, and is only 10c, for an extra $4.85, you will have (3 ) 20C lipos, 3 X $14.95 = $44.85 Just My 2 cents worth Take

care, Chellie
