Just one quick glance at this superbly crafted Yak 54 is all it takes to be impressed by it's quality, look harder and you will see that this model is a serious performer.
The Balsa/ply construction is of the best quality and close attention to weight saving, without compromising strength, has been achieved. More clues as to the quality of this model are given away by the carbon fibre under-carriage and wing tube.
Built with 3D in mind, the hardware is heavy duty, servo horn extensions are provided, rudder is pull/pull, but this model would be just as happy sport flying, so you don't need to be a hard-core 3D pilot to appreciate and enjoy this truly stunning scale aerobatic model. For 3D you need a 30cc Gas engine, or equivalent electric power train, a 26cc Gas engine will give you a nice sport flyer.

G,day all this plane is by far the best I have purchased from hk . Maiden went fantastic 4 flies now just gets better I use all hk parts ect.wont be starting this bild till spring must finnish all other projects first.nice looking plane and hardwear all looks good.will add review when done.I had the first test flight today only had to put a few clicks of up trim and a few clicks of right alieron. I put in the D/R what the book said and it was way to much so i halved it and put about 50pcnt expo to slow the servo speed down. Once i did that it, it went much better. i have got 5 Blue Bird Servos (BMS-660DMG HS Super Strong Digital Servo (MG) 14.2kg / .17sec / 52g) and a Turnigy RotorStar Dual Power 15A Voltage Regulator with 2x 3300mAh 2cell Lipos. I put a RCG 30cc Gas Engine in it and i had to cut the engine box back. I reinforced a lot of small areas and replaced the wing bolts with more stronger one's put another wing bolt at the back of the wing on both sides and i also replaced the wire that came with the plane for the Push-an-Pull system. But all up i am really happy how it flys, the take-off's are excellent and the landing's are great. 10/10 Thank You HOBBYKNGDon't miss this one if your looking for a 30cc 3D capable aircraft!, excellent quality, well built and covered, I cannot fault it at all.
And to compare, I have owned and flown Extreme Flight models, and honestly this is worth a lot more than HK are charging.the plane is great , i had a similar one from peak model and it flew just as good as this one I would recommend it to anyone wanting to take a crack at 3D flying its just the right size to fit in to a 4 door car and everything fits nice and right covering scheme looks awsome in the air! .
RCG 30cc. 4500 . , 40 , . Overall I'm delighted with this Yak. Superb value for money and all of the fixtures and fittings are usable. I did swap-out the fuel tank for a larger Dubro one but that was just personal choice. I also fitted Robart hinges in place of the "fuzzy CA" hinges supplied but I'm sure the latter would be more than adequate for the average sport flyer.
There's a full build review with images at http://www.rcmf.co.uk/4um/index.php/topic,93431.0.htmlNice construction throughout. Concerted to a electric version with a the recommended Power 160 outrunner motor. See uploaded pictiures.
Ninogot two of them put a 30cc on kt 19x10bambula rocket ship only thing it comes with ca hinges all other hardware is good built better than higher end models.maiden flight today two clicks of down elevator only needed second flight after dialing in more expo one sweet 3d machine i had to shorten the engen box to fit the os 33cc gas motor YOU WONT BE DISAPOINTED EXELENT 3D AND LANDS LIKE A TRAINER GOOD ONE HOBBY KING
