Thanks Bill and Crash, I wonder why there arent many Yak-50 kits out there? it is a nice looking plane in the air. Its worth it to get a BEC to make sure I get some more flying out of it. Really needs more power tho, but these 1500 kokams are only 8c, so 12amp batteries. Im only pulling [email protected] but its still enough to tax these batteries.

I am building one heck of a Christmas list tho!!

Yup, and I want it 3oz lighter, with approx the same wing loading.


Loosing 2-3" off the fuse length for the next one and reducing the fuse height. Single servo on the ailerons and fewer angle bracings, they were not needed that I can tell. Other then that, going to a thinner material is the only solution I can come up with.
