Default RE: Extreme Flight 87" Yak 54 - Build & Fly

ORIGINAL: wgeffon


With that motor on the Yak plan on the plane being just shy of 18 pounds.
With that being said, your wing loading will be around 28.5 oz/sqft. Not bad but not like the amazing wing loading of 24 that we are seeing with this plane.

Nobody says you have to have a DA in this plane. Use what you have and have fun.

according to the wing loading program that you guy's sent me my edge is 36.6, and the yak will be 29.4 if the yak comes in @18.5lbs. with my 3W 60 on it, what a difference. Now my hanger9 33% extra with a da 100 on it come's in at 26lbs. that's a wing load of 34.2 why is my extra such a floater if it has such a high wing load? RV
