    RE: Yak 54 from Peak Models

    Here is my setup.

    Jr 8411's every where.
    Evoloution 26 GT
    Fromeco 2 cell on Ing
    Fromeco 4 cell on radio
    16 oz fuel tank
    she is weight's 10LBS on Digital Bathroom Scales
    3 flights on her she is flying Ok moved the CG back and waiting for some good weather maybe tomorow or Wednesday.
    The 26 is plenty of power running a 18X6W APC prop. Hovers about 1/3 stick pulls out very well.

    more info after the next flight or 2 and I will give a full report of what I think of her and some video.

    RE: Yak 54 from Peak Models

    Ok could not wait for better weather here is some video of the first flights. The cg is still not where I want it I will shoot some more when I am done. The evolution mounts on a saddle mount like all rc engines and it is throwing the cg off on the plane going to try to get it closer to the firewall there engine looks to mount on stand off and can be mounted closer. I have a ZAGI battery in the tail for weight and it is still nose heavy.

    RE: Yak 54 from Peak Models

    Nice video. It looks like the plane flies very well.

    Question - do you know what the covering is - Ultracote (aka Oracover), or is it some cheap "chinacote" stuff?

    Thanks.

    RE: Yak 54 from Peak Models

    The plane is built very light mine is a 11 lbs and it fly well with the evolution on a mount I had to add weight to the tale. With there engine you should be fine or even a Saito 100 to 125 or Ys 110 would all be good choices.

    great plane for the money.
    I think I would like there Edge also.

    Do you think an O.S 1.60 would too much power, and would it help with the ballence.

    Thanks: Matt

    a lot of power for this plane it would be fun compare the weight on it to a evo 26 from horizons website if it is lighter it would be awesome.

    RE: Yak 54 from Peak Models

    Is this the yak that isn't true scale having a flat bottom?

    RE: Yak 54 from Peak Models

    Hello,

    I have the new 70'' Yak from Peakmodel.
    You can see the pictures here : [link]http://super-modeles.niceboard.com/VOL-THERMIQUE-f1/Yak-54-Peakmodel-et-SPE-40-cm3-t12.htm[/link]
    It's a very good kit, the quality of building is better than the EDGE 540T Peakmodel. You need less thime for assembly.


    The elevator is in two parts :

    I will add a lot of pics soon.

    By, Phil
