Hope that coupon doesnt get taken back Dion!
Your good bro, don't worry. Ship it free too.

I forgot to ask. How's Gary taking your loss? I know he prolly has as much sticktime on it as you do.

Steve, sorry to hear about your Yak. I will feel the same way whenever mine goes in. My OMP Yak is the best hovering plane I have ever flown. Well at least you had 13gallons of fuel thru it. I don't have a plane that has 13 gallons on it, my planes never last that long. but my Yak does have about 3-4 gallons thru it.

once again, sorry to hear about it.

I'm fine....I didn't build it, and I don't have to repair it or build a replacement! I did fly the Yak a lot early on, while Steve was hobblin along on one leg. Funny how that came to a stop when he got off the crutches.....

By the way, surgery has begun on the yak. Its an awful site peeling the skin from my once beautiful baby.
I feel your pain Bro. The Pro Bro Sledge had a slight mishap that broke the fuse I did not take any pics of the before (they were just to painful to look at) I did take these.
The biggest problem is that the it has taken some time away from my TC project. I wonder what they call crashing in Gary's world???

After about 20 hours and some new plywood and balsa, the Yak is back from the dead. Other than one wingtip not getting fixed yet most people couldnt tell it had been repaired. I wish i had some crash photos.
On a side note, with all the servos out of the plane for repairs, I replaced the 121 oz rudder servo with an 8411 180 oz servo and wow what a difference! 121 oz was just not enuf! Now i can do a sweet knife edge waterfall or pinwheel whichever is the correct term but its dang sweet. I simply cannot imagine anyone using a standard servo on the Yak

constristor, speaking of servos on the Yak,
I originally had JR 4721 on the ailerons, running at 6volts they have around 130oz of torque. I swapped those servos out to hitec 5945 on 6volts they have around 170-180oz of torque, and boy it made my roll rate increase, and it flys more crisp now.

For the tail, I am using hitec 945, I think they have about 150oz of torque, and they seem to be doing fine. I can't imagine how people fly this plane with 60-80oz servos.

Glad to hear the Yak's going back together.

Hail Constrictor! Great job Bro. Totally agree on the servos, I try to go as strong and quick as I can afford. 80-90 is minimum recommended by OMP and will get the job done. More power is always better. Isn't that what we all learned from Tim the Tool Man.
