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!

Got the Wargo Yak and have it assembled and ready to fly.
Has anyone else got one yet?
Let us know how it goes.
It looks like a solid plane to me, tough.

Well i have flown it 5 times now and so far have not had very good luck with any 3d flying. I am mostly trying to fly and land right now,without damage.
So far i have had to repair the motor mount 2 times and the servo's i used did not hold up very long. The cheap servo's don't get it. Now i am waiting on a servo order.
