The amount of posts have slowed down though...and they slowed down right before I started flying this thing, too.[&:]

I would be willing to help out on this review. For as long as I've been flying them, I think I might be able to add a word or two.

hehe, a group review perhaps?

Wow, my motor mount area is starting to get really weak. I've slammed it into the ground twice now. And it is just now glueing up again. The foam has crunched in so much that the wood is running out of places to come in contact with.[&:]4 flights on her, my first ARF/3D plane/ foamy and she's served me well. Had a really nice 12 minute flight at the park where another RC pilot had thought that I had been flying pattern for a couple of months now, even though I had only been flying 4 channel for about 3 days....but I don't want complements on my pattern flying skills. I want some 3D![>:] Muahahahahahahahaha....sorry don't know what came over me.

What's everybodys' favorite color for the Yak? Blue and Black, Red and Black, Red and Blue, Yellow and Pink. Personally my favorite is the Red and Black which is sitting in my closet waiting. I fly a Blue and black right now.

I like the Red/black... that's what my original Yak was. My second was the pink/yellow... I didn't care for it a whole lot. My one in the box is the blue/black I think. I guess I'm trying to make a full house with the colors, huh?

the pink doesnt seem to bleed through the wing when your in the the bright sun like it does on the red/black.easier to see the bottom of the wing.
I put some black stripes on the bottom of the wing to help on fast rolls.

Resurrecting an old thread.....I picked up two of these dirt cheap after reading the thread. I wonder if anyone has used all Hobbycity stuff ( www.hobbycity.com ) to equip one of these. I am ordering some other parts from them and would like to tack on all the stuff to equip this plane. Anyone done it?

Motor
ESC
Lipos
Props
Servos
Connectors?
