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

I also like the looks of it... with the prop pushed back against the cowl I think it looks like a GeeBee... with it pushed WAY forward I think it makes it look like an aerobatic machine (sometimes functionality has an ugly face).

Plus, moving 3.5 lbs forward by 1/2" gives you an added moment of 24 oz-in... this is like adding 2 oz 12" in front of the CG... helps a lot in getting her right. I just wish the wing tube was located aft by just a little bit... that would really get the CG right with less effort.
