Umm, only two people have the 50cc AW Yaks . Aeroworks still has their prototype and there is a ship captain out at sea that has a whole container full of them. You won't see people posting pics for 6 weeks or so...

Well,first off, I have to point out that once the container gets to the dock in China, it's out of Aerowork's hands.
But if the the Extra 260 shippment is any indication, they have been on the water since some time in December (can't remember the exact date), at least that's what I was told when I called them. I was expecting a late December/early January delivery date and stopped building a 34% Extra because I thought I would get this plane sooner ( I decided to use all the equipment I bought for it on the 260)...well, we are nearly in the middle of February and they are still on the water - that's been at least 6 weeks already. And they haven't even gotten to the states yet. Once they do, it will be around 10 days from there before they are shipped to customers.
Sure, you can hope, but you will be disappointed. If I were you, I'd plan on a mid-April delivery (according to mark, they hit the water around the 1st of Feb+6weeks water time, minimum+2 weeks of logistics on land+fudge factor, i.e. customs, weather, etc), that way, you will be pleasantly suprised if they show up earlier...

one more thing you could get the factory to do to make it a true QB is get them to seal hinge lines on elevator and ailerons with covering. Or is it already done.

Well, the instructions say "no need to do anything more with hinging - we've done that for you", and would imply, IMO, that the gaps have already been sealed, since that, to me, is an essential part of the hinging process. Still, my guess is that it has not been done and I have already bought some hinge sealing material for that.

My last post got deleted. I am wondering if the hinges are sealed from factory.

I thought I responded, too. To answer you question more "PC", I guess, I don't know, but I bought some hinge tape if they aren't. And if they aren't, it'll only be a matter of an extra 15 minutes in the build.

Hi Guys
Just got my new Lanier RC 87 inch Yak 54....what a GREAT looking airplane....very light and the covering is first rate. The control surfaces are Huge!!1 much bigger than the TOC 50cc Yak.....Am powering with a DA 50....I think its going to be a killer airplane and given the low 499. price it looks like a winner!!

Ok to answer the hinge questions. No they are not sealed but there is little to no gap on any of the surfaces so there is really no need to seal them. But if you think it needs it by all means go ahead.

I've also got the qb on order. I thought we were expecting them in mid to late Feb. It now sounds like it will be much later. Anyone have a handle on when?

The container is on the water now so we are hoping about another 6-8 weeks at the most until they get here.

Mark... How does a 16 day trip plus a few days on the docks translate to 6-8 weeks?

Well there's alot of fudge room in that estimate. You never know what could happen espaically with the way custumes is but most likely it will be sooner.

Logistics, man, ain't it a female dog!!!???
As for timeframe, 3 weeks seems about right, maybe 4, I am waiting on another new electric plane that got on the water early January, and it arrived in the US last Tuesday...I would hope that 8 weeks is conservative. But you gotta consider customs time and trave time on the train, and then travel time on the truck, and then all the stuff the hard-workin guys at Aeroworks need to do to get them inventoried and checked out before shipping to the customer.

Yep the boat ride over is only one part of the jurney all the other stuff takes time. We will be shipping them out as fast as we can though as soon as they arrive.

Thanks for the delivery info. Hopefully it's fairly accurate. This will be my first venture into "giant scale" so I am quite anxious to get going. Hopefully all will go smoothly from here on out. Any suggestions on a pilot & panel? Will a 30% Yak virtual cockit work a-la troy built or an other mfr? Do you offer one?

Being fairly new to gasser, what is the best engine for this plane? DA, BME, FP??????

SHould it be be larger then a 50cc ????? OR will a 50 cc give it unlimited veritcal?

I"m at 2800 ASL and during the summer, with temps of 100 the density altitiude here is about 6500 to 7500. During the winter is so cold that 2800 doesn't have much as an impact as during the summer.

Forecast for today>>>SNOW????


Regards,

CHuck

A DA 50 had decent power at 6000' asl on an 80* day so you should be fine with it at your elevation. If you want insane power take a look at the MVVS/Evolution 58.
