I just recived mine, it looks really good and it is very light. But what really annoyed me was that it came without decals/building manual, so now I have like a big white tube with wings :(This is a fantastic looking aeroplane! and providing you use the following set up than you can't go wrong!
I purchased the turnigy 2826-10 1400kv engines for this and the
turnigy trust 55amp speed controllers. These are just the perfect
set up for this plane as I get 5 minutes flying on a turnigy 3cell 2200
mah battery. The battery even stays cool!
The ys-11 can fly comfortably at half power in a light breeze or 65pcnt if the breeze gets up a little!
The main undercarrige wire you will have to shorten a little! as it sits high with its nose down!
I would also use slightly larger wheels on the mains to help it take off quicker in which I did this and has made a great deal of difference!
on a short mowed flying field it will get off on full throttle in about 15 - 20 metres! Yes it is true as it gets off quite quickly at my local flying field
Next project is my hobbyking fokker f-27 with the same set up!
Can't wait to see her go!Just ordered mine yesterday, wait for arrival, my colleagye has one, very very beautiful, but I'm afraid this plan is pretty heavy for 1200mm wine spanquality great but missing decals , i bought it direct from hobbyking through ebay, here is customer service for you!! not great

Cheryl: Thank you for contacting the HobbyKing Support Team. How may I help you?
You: hello cheryl, i have some parts missing from my order no. 2005187433

As a Platinum member we value you as a customer greatly and willTo all you people who have purchased this model please check the fuselage moulding on the starboard side where the wing joins the fuselage.Itis not Parralell with the port side causing the starboard prop to hit the fuse while the port sid has about 12 mill clearance. regards JOHN.R.Hi, just ordered this kit, I'm looking to carry out a nitro conversion and fit retracts, has anybody any advice or actually successfully carried out this conversionSo has anyone actually got one of these in the air ?
I spent weeks building mine , with retracts and it looked supurb. But on its maiden flight it fell out of the sky after flying for a few seconds. Illput it down to pilot error, It torque rolled ( i had both props spinning in the same direction), and tip stalled after i took off to steeply with not enough airspeed. I was too eager to get to a 'safe altitude' .
It seems to have a relatively small wing area, so you will need to keep it at a fair clip of speed.
I'd like to hear of at least one success story ...... Anyone ?
Received mine today and I must say this is a very nice ARF. Good fiberglass work and paint. Instructions must be down loaded and are fair if you have a few ARFs under your belt or have been a kit builder. I would recommend it.Avio muito bonito, os colegas de pista gostam de v lo voando. preciso ter ateno em baixa velocidade e nos pousos por que ele estola de ponta de asa facilmente. No geral ele voa muito bem, um voo escala e admirvel. Usei 2 RC TIME 1534kv, esc de 25/30A e lipo 3s 20c de 3000mah, necessrio para corrigir o cg, autonomia de 5min. de voo. No cabe hlice maior que 7" pois pega na fuselagem, mas voa bem com hl 7x6 e no veio nenhuma informao ou manual para montagem, mas fcil de montar por ter poucas peas. No geral, gostei do avio, bonito e estvel.I have recieved my kit and wanted to let the chap who cant find motors for it . I am fitting a pair of 28-40.-1800kv in mine and i will let you know the results. Itwill be on 4cells. Regards john. r.
