You’ve seen it at air shows. You’ve see it in our videos. Now you can own your very own flying scale replica. We’re talking about HobbyKing’s Yak 52 aerobat, flown by world class aerobatic pilot Nigel Willson. 

The full size Yak-52 is a Soviet primary trainer aircraft which first flew in 1976 and is still being produced in Romania by Aerostar. The Yak-52 was designed originally as an aerobatic trainer for students in the Soviet Union, but is now highly sought after by aerobatic pilots across the globe. 

Avios brings you a beautiful 1200mm RC flying scale model of one of the most iconic Yaks on the air show scene. A brilliant no-glue required design arrives with all electronics pre-installed, just needing a battery and radio system to complete. The stunning colors of the HobbyKing Yak means this model is sure to please both in the air and on the ground. 

The all EPO molded foam replica features scale frise ailerons, split flaps, full metal retracts and a stunning scale paddle blade propeller. With quality being most important to the design team at Avios, each model is individually checked at the factory to make sure it meets stringent quality standards. The Avios 1200mm Yak 52 is no exception. Since it is a plug and fly model, most of the hard work has been done for you. The whole model can be assembled and flight ready in about an hour.

If you are after a model that turns heads at the field, flies like it’s on rails and performs seamless aerobatics, the Avios Yak 52 deserves a place in your hangar.

• Plug and Fly - Install receiver, complete final assembly charge batteries and fly
• Fully molded EPO airframe
• Magnetically secured canopy/battery hatch

Good value for money, Build quality is a bit poor in places but can easily be rectified during assembly if you know what your doing.
Very tight with all cabling etc and would be a massive pain to remove the wings every time after flight, easier to leave it complete if you can.

With that in mind, i was rather nervous flying this plane for the first time, dont know why.

But it flew really well, i was very impressed indeed. It has bags of power for vertical manovours should you wish to do them. It flys like its on rails (once you get the CG etc set up perfetly, i set it up as per the manual and found it to be tail heavy still upon take off..... great! lol.)

Overall very happy with this, flown it a few times today with no issues.

I'm overall satisfied with this model. get about 10 mins on a 2650 4S pack with some aerobatics thrown in. Only thing I found bit annoying was the wing servo & flap wires were too short, lucky I had some small extensions laying about and use those. also make sure you put battery all way forward! But it flies super well and is decently fast enough and scale enough. the yellow colors and patterns make it stand out and more eye catching in the air I think more so than the red military spec one. Retracts are great and I like how they are slow enough for that scale look and very strong full metal retracts, noticed they have plastic rubber sleeves over the brushed motors in the retracts to help keep them dry from wet grass is a nice touch. Can be flown on a football field with not too many trees around it. Got this for the price of $136.99 about $150 delivered to my door so was a great buy! I love it

Ein toller Flieger, kann ich nur empfehlen. Super Flugeigenschaften, gut motorisiert, schönes Flugbild. Habe die Fahrwerksbeine gegen die gefederten von Oleo getauscht, somit ist der Start auch auf Gras gut möglich, da sie etwas länger sind. Eingefahren ist genug Platz ohne umzubauen. Der 4s 2200mah Zippy Lipo muss gut nach vorne, um den Schwerpunkt ohne Zusatzgewicht anzupassen. Die Querruder auf jeden Fall mit Sekundenkleber nachkleben. Ansonsten top verarbeitet und alternativ mit einem 12x5 APC Prop super zu fliegen. Steigt ohne Aufhalten in den Himmel. Die Flugzeit, je nach Flugstil, liegt dann zwischen 8 und 12 Minuten. Von meiner Seite aus Daumen hoch.

Just built it, a very nice airplane, normally i only build balsa airplanes and a lot bigger, but wanted an airplane that would fly in garden or in a field for quick fast flying without my normal kit, fuel etc. It builds very easy, all is a big plus, only comment would be that the cables from the Wings are a little on the short side, and i did not like the connector, But it was no issue adding my own cables. Its small enough to leave the wings on permanently in travel. Next step is flying it, then i can review it again.
Highly recommend this as an easy build at low cost.

Just recieved it this morning , had it put together and maidened in less than an hour. Excellent flyer and looks great! Only 2 negative things.... a little bit of paint chipping on the cowling and elevator hinges pulled apart , neither one is very serious and was fixed easily , overall a great buy!

Pro's:
1. Nice looking plane.

Con's:
1. Paint flakes off merely by looking at it.
2. C of G is nowhere near where they say it is. That was with a 2200mah battery
3. Takes 54grams of lead in the nose to stop it being ridiculously tall heavy.
4. Retracts only work on every other flight. Sometimes 1 wheel stays up sometimes 2.
5. Front landing gear isn't great as it can easily bend.
6. Lock nut for the prop is poor. You can only finger tight the prop in place.
7. Dodgy electrics. Installed a Spektrum receiver with satellite but experienced glitches. Checked receiver lights after flight. They weren't flashing so there was no lose of link. I installed a ferrite ring on the speed controller lead as well as a capacitor (incase there was a voltage drop). None of this worked and on the 8th flight she went full power into the ground. Incase you think it was the Spektrum receiver I had also tried 2 separate Orange receivers at the start and had both of those fail the range test. They worked fine in other models I have.

So would I recommend this plane......mmmm No!

Overall a nice plane apart from a few minor issues, worst would be the Ailerons when attached to the wing at ( factory ) one sit 2mm higher than the other. Rudder is concaved not sure if it is supposed to be plus tip of rudder is badly warped. Servo cables from wings flaps and ailerons are way too short ended up using y leeds. all that aside i love the yak pretty easy build and looks amazing in the air.

Flys really well. Wwith a BOLT 4s it goes vertical, it is thankfully, not a heavy plane unlike say the Sea Fury. Fragile yes, unreliable gear, yes but I will eventually get it sorted into a great little plane. Front gear very fragile so good landings essential.

Its not the greatest quality with poorly fitting unreliable parts but when you finally get it all fixed, and remember to move the battery well forward into the nose, it flies like a dream. Chuck in a 4s Bolt and it goes straight up. Yet to explore its limits because a: not a good enough pilot and b: it keeps breaking. That said it will be a fun plane to own.

After many false starts due to malfunctions I did finally get to fly. With the battery well forward into the nose (forget the designed position with the strap, this is in the crash zone balance wise) the plane flies really well. With the Bolt 4s it has unlimited vertical and becomes a tiny dot all too quickly. That said the U/C is the weak spot. Very unreliable and I think due to the forward/back mounting. Even the slightest shock load on landing (or takeoff) is transferred directly onto the threaded mechanism, motor etc. Think about how most electric uc units are fitted sideways into the wing and any shock load does little to the mechanism unlike this model. It is a great flying model, when it works!!
