Default Yak 54 from Foamy Factory help

Hi, do you guys know where can i order a similar plane to this one? I was looking at this site foamyfactory.com but i think they dont sell this airplanes as an arf or a kit, they just have the plans for building one. If someone knows where can i order the yak 54 or something similar let me know.

Thanks Marcelo

Why wouldnt you put a brushless motor on that plane. I am also new to electrics. Dont you get more power and much longer flight times for the same size battery?

Yes I will like to do that, but a brushles motor is way much expensive than a brushed motor so i prefer to go with something not to expensive.

Get a himaxx 2015-4100 if you are worried about price, it is $49.99. The speed control is more expensive too though.

Thanks for the tip Blackhawk. $49 doesnt sound too bad. How long should I expect a brushless motor to last in a plane like this? Will they take a hit (crash) very well?

We are posting up a nice review with a awesome 7 minute 3D video of the Foamy Factory yak in the next day or so.

Brushless motors will last thru many airplanes, they don't have any parts to wear out except the ball bearings. The motor will be isolated from a crash by the gearbox, so crash damage isn't a worry.

Bro you need to take in consideration that the esc is gonna cost you much more too....with the brushless your gonna need the gear too if your going with that himax....the gws motor combo will be plenty enough for you...and you dont have to go with the 8 cell Sanyo AAA at 720mAh...i would go with any pack at 9.6 volts with 8 cells, you also can go with a 9 cell for more thrust, the 8 cell i have is 800 mAh so its a little better than the Sanyo and cheaper.....

and one other thing....if you want me to cut out the plane for you and send you the kit...i will...it will cost you a few bucks but not alot....im cutting out planes all the time....as a matter of fact i cut out a 3DX and a biplane today....i have plenty of foam left and carbon fiber rods...all youll have to do is put the electronics on it and get you cg right...maybe paint it or color tape it if you want...i cut all my planes with precision...we dont throw **** together here...holler back
