    GENERATION I REACHES 1000 FLIGHTS

    Just an update on my 4 year old generation I 100cc yak. This fall I topped the 1000 flights on this airframe. It started out as the all white version which I added my personal design for the first three years and after many flights with smoke I stripped it down last winter and recovered it in monkote in a QQ scheme. It has had it's hard bounces. I tore the gear out twice and removed an elevator on a very poor landing. I have replaced the cowl and the canopy once each but the airframe and wings are the original. I fly mostly precision but I do a fair amount of 3D as well. The newer models have addressed the landing gear and canopy issues that the first model had. I think this model has passed the durability test in my opinion. It's still my favorite plane to fly for everday flying and I've performed many demos for scout groups, make a wish, air shows and fun flys.

    This is awesome! Beautiful covering job too, very precise!

    Did you have a template?

    Very nicely done and 1000 flights is something I never managed to make due to ground reaching up lol

    Thank you for sharing.
