Description

This hobbyking Yak54 is constructed from EPP foam over a balsa/ply frame to ensure you get the best of both worlds, a great looking airplane and a far more robust model than your standard balsa/film construction.

Experts and advanced pilots beginners in 3D flying will love this model.  It's light weight and with big control surfaces it is super responsive and capable of all 3D routines.  With the right powerplant she will hover all day and then break into normal flight just as easily.  

At 1230mm it's an ideal size! big enough to make an impression in the air and yet still get it into the car in one piece.  The perfect model for "warming up the thumbs" at the start of a flying day and for those interested in getting started in 3D flying.

A great flying model, the Hobbyking Yak54 is the perfect choice for a fun 3D airplane to add to your hangar.

Hardware complete except for the turning rod between tailwheel and rudder, got a thin z-bend of wire that didn't fit. Made new one from 1.5mm carbon rod. All hinges are rubbish and come out with only small force, Replace with nylon pin and hinge type (08-00202x10 for ail, 008-00201x10 for rud and ele), UHU por glue. Wheel pants look nice, but are very brittle and flimsy, and can rotate over the wheel. Side force generators need longer screws than the included and reglue plywood squares. No servo arm extensions included, I used OR032-01501. Servos K S T DS 215 MG all over, 60A YEP ESC, H e n g e 8A UBEC with 4700 uF cap, Orange RX 7. Motor SK3-3542-1250, prop 12x6 TGS Sport. Needed 20gr lead at very front of cowl for balance (K S T heavy in the tail), and battery all the way forward. Boring on 3S, used 4S 2250 65C and 4S 2200 45C Nanos, for good power. Flies well, but not so easy to see orientation in the air without sun. Recommend as second 3D plane due to size and brittleness (it will turn into sticks and straw in a crash). Still, good value for money and fun to fly.

Very nice looking for an EPP foam over balsa plane.
Quality of the hardware is excellent. Only minors:
- Had to file out the plastic holder for the tailwheel, wheel was too big for it to fit in.
- Also does not come with servo arm extensions like the Edge 540T EPP, so I used ones from one of my other planes.
My setup: TGY plush 60A, NTM prop drive 35-42 1000KV, Corona DS-929MG and APC-style 13x4 bone propeller. I use a Zippy compact 2200 4S 35C all the way up front in the nose to achieve correct CG. AUW is 1400g. Flies nice, excellent for practising 3D

My kit had some issues:
1. The canopy doesn't fit good and the magnets were sticked at the wrong place
2. The elevator needs a lot of rework to fit 90 degrees to the rudder
3. The black colour bleeds

Schnell geliefert und gut verpackt. Die Montage nach Anleitung kein Problem.
Die Formschaum Auenhaut fr mich neu aber kombiniert mit den Rippen und Spanten stabil. Nicht grob anfassen. Bei der Kabinenhaube sofort eine Lasche zum ffnen ankleben!
Mein Set:
Motor Turnigy SK 3 3542 1000 kv, Prop 13x4 E
Akku Zippy Flightmax 2800 mAh 3S, 30 C
Regler Dualsky 30 A (knapp bemessen)
Servo Turnigy TSS-10MG
Bin nach den ersten Flgen von diesem Modell und der Bauweise begeistert. Geht durch die Figuren wie am Schnrchen.
