This stunning Yak 55 is a superbly finished large scale model that has been designed very much with extreme 3D aerobatic's in mind. The airframe combines a very low flying weight with generous control surfaces to give the RC pilot precise control and amazing performance.
As well as featuring a high quality airframe, this Yak 55 really looks the part courtesy of it's fantastic colour scheme which has been achieved with quality covering that has been expertly applied and a deep gloss paint finish on the huge cowl and spats. For practicality, the wings and horizontal stabilizer are plug in, the the generous size canopy is screw on for security.
As well as being a looker, this large Yak is a performer and fitted with a powerful 50cc engine or electric equivalent, you can expect more than enough performance for prop hanging and those big, big maneouvers, yet the low wing loading will give you precise control during most extreme low speed 3D aerobatics. Set on low rates, the Yak becomes a very capable sport model, either way, nothing flies like a big model, especially one as capable as this!

After a couple of days after ordering it arrived at my home, excellent!
Packing was good, no damage.
It is a nice hobby-project, not so very ARF ...
Biggest point I have in quality is that my fuselage was a bit twisted, 1-2 degrees. I have doubted what to do, but finally I have repositioned the rear tube, so that the horizontal stabilo is parallel to the wings. But the rudder stays 1-2 degrees out of position with this solution.
Also remarkable is, that there is no manual included, and I couldn't find it anywhere on the internet, so you must have experience. If someone has find, please post ...
Another point is that there is no place foreseen in the fuselage for a pipe muffler, and I want to use one, so I have to modify the fuselage for it
Landing gear, wing and stabilo tubes are alu. It is good, but heavy. You can save 350 grams by replacing them to carbon, but that will cost you another 100$.
Rudder of a YAK55M has curved lines (like the photo at this item, but mine came with sharp corners. It is not to difficult to modify, but still...
But it is a very nice and impressive model, finishing is nice, and I like the looks of a YAK55 very much, so I am glad with it...Have only flown it once due to poor weather conditions but it few great. No instructions so know what your doing. Landing gear mounting bolts very difficult to get at. Covering job is outstanding. Flown with a 3MM 53cc engine and a 23x8 prop.
