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

All the covering on the Yak is Ultracote.
The vertical performance is absolutely unlimited. You can do a snap,or double snap, on the upline & it just keeps going vertical. Keep the weight under 16 lbs, preferably between 15 & 15 1/2 lbs. If it gets too heavy with the canister, dump it & go with stock muffler, it's more than you'll ever need.

With the design of this aircraft, it is balanced, it's flies true, it's light on the wing, it goes exactly where you aim it, & it will do anything you are capable of throwing at it. Just wait till you fly it. You will answer me back that I was too conservative with my assessment.

I have a buddy who maidened his yesterday, called me last night at 10:00 pm saying it is the most fantastic flying plane he has ever had.
