Yak builds quickly, however we suggest using epoxy glue on the tail instead of the supplied screw joints. If you use 5min epoxy it wont take any longer and you will end up with a straight and sturdy tail.
All joints and fixtures fit together perfectly. Supplied 1300mAh 11.1v pack is good for around 7min flights. However we used an 1700mAh 3S1P D9 pack (others of the same size will fit perfectly) to extend flight times and weight the nose slightly for a windy day. Tail rudder and elevator joints need flexing 5-10 times to free them up for the servos to opperate smoothly.
Servo throws and trim appears correct. Very little pre-flight trim adjustment needed.
Yak was hand-launched and flew as expected. Control throws are huge, so novices be careful when launching or low to the ground.
Snap rolls, knife edge hover and rolling harriers all performed with ease. The 11x4.7 supplied prop and motor-gearbox combination worked excellently. Although the gearbox is a little noisy, it draws a good crowd.
Landing gear adequate though bends slightly on harsh landings or nose overs.
Over all, an excellent 3D flomie. Well done Art-Tech!
My Yak arrived and all pieces were perfectly strait, no bends or cracks. "Great Packing job". Mine arrived in the blue and white color pattern which I think looks better than the yellow anyway! This Yak 3Ds like a dream. It will fly nice at 1/4 throttle. Follow everyone elses advice and get the 5 min appoxy for the tail. It is also useful if you crash and need to strengthen any part of the plane. Plenty of power with the factory motor. Took about 40 minutes from opening box to being in the air. Hand launches great and also launches good from smooth surface. I have not had any problems with nose overs. If you like the look of this plane and want to fly 3-D, Then BUY IT!!! I want to buy another to put up incase I total this one!Where is the C.G in this plane, in 2,5 inches or 3,5 inches or ???????I was really impressed with this foamy. Looks great, and easy to see in the air. Flies great, but make sure you set the throws low for your first few flights. Blistering fast rolls. I did change out the landing gear to something a bit stronger, but other than that a great plane!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wsUvaK8uPs
Hope this helps!Nice plane, flys quite well, sufficient power. Highly maneuverable.
However, on the 5the flight, the engine axle broke in mid air rendering the engine useless. So no 5 stars rating from me.
Otherwise, still worth every pennyA nice plane that flys nicely. Flys
slow on the stock prop so I change to GWS 10x8 as recomended by some reviewer and had a few good flight. Was happy with it until I notice the rhudder servo jam on one side when I try hovering. In my panic I had a hard landing and break the fuselage in two. That servo totally can't move now. Maybe it was just my luck to had a faulty servo on my plane. Had order one for my friend, hope his don't have same problem.Schnes Flugzeug, Farbe leider nicht lt. Bild sondern wei/blau/rot, Verarbeitung ist ok, Aufkleber knnten etwas besser positioniert werden, gutmtige Flugeigenschaften, Lipo HXP D9 1300mAh passt gut ins Akkufach.
Antriebsleistung fr 3D etwas schwach
Fahrwerk sollte verstrkt werden.
Preis / Leistung ist ok, wrde mir Modell wieder kaufen, Danke HC!
i have this plane and i love it. its a joy to fly and control is very good even on low rates it will perform big. if you would like to see this plane in flight pleaes go to youtube.com

The parts fit perfectly.
