hey Andrew..another question on the Yak...did your canopy require some modifications to get it to rest on the airframe...mine seems a little too long....any suggestions?

Mine canopy did not need any mods to fit. It is a perfect fit from the factory. The only thing I would suggest doing is making another support for the back of the canopy. If you notice that when you put the canopy on and move the back of it can move a good inch off the fuse either side. With this happening my canopy cracked in the front. I would think just a pin in the back would be great. I am going to go out and fly the airplane tonight and try and get some good videos of it flying.

hello Andrew


You probally dont remember me but we met in vegas last Oct at the Hobby visions deal.. I from WA my name is Marcus. Anyhow was wondering your opinion on the 85" from QQ vs the EF 87" yak.... from what I can tell they are almost identical in contructionwith a few things here and there. They, from what I am told are even made at the same factory in China. Also I met a friend of yours only can't remember his name, He was flying the new Cap 580. in eastern WA. Him and I talked a bit about your old airplane and the incidient that happend with someone not looking at the radio board. Wayne was telling me about your interesting deal with the 102". Maybe I will get both of themand see which is better in my mind.

Anyhow take care

The yak like all other airplanes has a slight wing rock. I think that this airplane shows the least amount of rock out of any of them that I have seen.

How do you do a tipspin with the yak, I tried going in hammer-head style with right rudder then coming back in with full left and down elevator and left aileron. Only occasionally will it go into a tip spin, mostly it just goes into a inverted flatspin-ish thing. I think my timing is just off with the entry.

thanks

Would this make a good 3d plane?

Chris,

This airplane is hard to get into the knife edge spin as it wants to go into a flat spin easily. I usually go up high inverted do a inverted tumble when the airplane losses all airspeed and slows down keeep all the same inputs in( down elevator right aileron and right rudder) you will then have to reduce the aileron to get it into the spin. After entry add back the aileron. This is all about the right sequence of events at the correct time.

Hob,

This airplane is a great 3d airplane. Even more then that it can fly precision with the best of them. A very light airplane at 26.25 pounds with cans in it which makes it have a super light wing loading.

I watched Andrew fly his this weekend and it looked awesome.
I just wish he would have let me fly it. He said it was a little too advanced for me but that if I keep practicing, I could maybe fly it next year.
