The Polish built YAK 12 is famed for its STOL capability and ruggedness, two features that this great little scale model also shares!
Manufactured from ultra-tough EPO foam, this YAK 12 is nicely molded with plenty of detail. Assembly is fast, helped by the high level of pre-assembly. This great looking YAK is packed with features including sprung main wheels, hinged side door with a latch for easy battery access, pre-fitted fully operational flaps.
This YAK 12 is the perfect scale parkflyer. Its combination of a light flying weight and toughness make the YAK easy to live with while its slow fly capability, especially when using the pre-installed flaps is impressive. This is a brilliant model for a relaxing days flying!

It's a nice little model, quite easy to build and set up.
There is a few problems, though. The manual supplied is for an RTF version, so not much info on build in it. Be aware that the recommended motor (or most motors) won't fit easily onto the mount this plane comes with. Hole spacing is 16mm, while even the recommended motor has two holes at 16mm and the other 2 - 19mm.Arrived in perfect shape as all HK shipments do. Always very well factory packed. Assembled and connected electronics - only the engine HK recommends gave me problems in mounting to the special engine mount included in the kit. Did a few mods and now a perfect fit.
Located the ESC just behind the foam firewall. The battery is then located just inside the latched door. COG perfect.
Went out to the flying field and maidened her - flew perfectly right off. STOL characteristics are amazing and she is a great flyer.
Excellent value and a simply great little flyer.
