Default Quique's Yak - Where's it from?

Does anyone know if Quique's YAK he used at the TOC was a one off or is it a kit? If it's a kit is there any more info available on it; websites etc??

Thanks
Mark

According to Quique's website http://www.somenzini.com/ Wayne Ulery built it for him. Didn't say who's kit it was, it sure looks like a FiberClassics (or Comp ARF) YAK, but the website says it' balsa/ply/carbon - scratch built?

Quique's Yak is in no way related to Composite-Arf or Fiberclassics, the FC Yak is a 55 anyways, while Quique's is a 54. From what I gathered from him at the Joe Nall this year his Yak will be in a few sizes. I think I remember him saying it will be composite instead of built up like his. I do not know the time the kits will be due out, but look for that.

From what I have heard, the model Quique flew at the TOC will be produced by 3W, similar in structure to the other large 3W aircraft. However the model he flew at TOC was wood/foam construction.

I agree, I think I heard that it was made FOR him. But its not a kit. They may be making some like it now..

The Yakstra as I call it because if you have seen pictures of the real YAK 54 is more of a midwing shoulderwing airplane. Quiques airplane has a very low wing like an extra hence the name I have given it. The plane was built by Wayne Ullery for him and was designed by Quique and Wayne. At the TOC on his back up plane you could see where they had cut the counterbalances and made other mods to it before building the second plane. On some other thread or place, I read that 3w would be selling the 40% or so size, and somebody else would be producing some smaller versions. It did not say who would be producing them, it also did not say if they would be kits arfs, arcs, or what. This is second hand info at best on who will be producing what.

shill is right. His "Yakxtra" is a Extra in disguise. It's looks almost nothing like a real Yak 54, other than having a round nose. He'll sell a bunch of them off his own name, whether it's a Yak, or not...


Here's what a Yak 54 really looks like...

If I can ever get mine done, it'll hopefully be as great a flier as the real one...

Quique's Yak
That Yak 54 was built and designed buy Wayne Ulery,and Quique. thier are only two of that kind,and quique has them.I'm friends with wayne ,and maybe i can get him to post on here for you all , or maybe Quique can. But these planes are not kits . they were hand built . a awsome plane. Wayne is a great designer, and has designed planes that has,and will continue to change the modeling world. I'll try to get him to post on here tomorrow. deweyd

This last weekend Quique attended a fly-in in Alamogordo NM (100 Years of Avaition) and anounced the release of a 72" version of his YAK designed for a YS 140. The plane will be an ARF in the same colors and should be available in February 2004. The aircraft is being marketed by Quique Aircraft Company. The price range should be around $400. There are plans for a 100" version as well as a 120" version. He did not release dates for the larger aircraft.

The 100" would be interesting...but an 85" would really catch on!
