Yeah Wayne, I always liked that scheme.
You guys know I hate to set dates as they never are exact, but my prediction (notice I said prediction-like what the weather men do) is we will have the Edges and a few of the Yaks by mid to late February and a much larger shipment of the Yaks late March (Chinese New Year is in February and will hold up production for 7-10 days). The Vanquish and Extra should be here by Toledo in April. The factories I am currently working with are really on the ball so these "predictions" shouldn't be too far off.

Ok, I thought my bank account was going okay for the electrics, but it just screamed at me. Wow, that edge is screaming for some red bull! Love the pics and the planes. The extra should be super sweat but my first take is on the yak. I'm still kicking myself for selling my original NIB and never getting to fly it.

Ian, I've always loved the Aston Martin Vanquish from the James Bond movies, and I thought the definition of the word fit the airplane:
1. to conquer or subdue by superior force, as in battle.
2. to defeat in any contest or conflict; be victorious over

Chris,

If the Extra comes out in time for Toledo will you have the planes there for sale/pick-up? Will you also have the Yak? I am going to go this year and will wait until then to make purchase. I am going to buy either the Yak or the Extra but lean towards the Extra.

Thanks in advance.

P-man.

They must really know how to party!

Aint that the truth.... I'm nearing the Yak hall of fame myself...

But when you see the video of this new Extra... you'll see it THINKS it's a Yak why looking stylishly sexy and different in it's own right...

Kinda like always dating blondes... but a natural redhead just does somethin' for ya...

This is not my first admission in public, but am also a Yak-aholic.


Chri, what is the wing area on the new Yak?

These will cool additions to the hangar. For sure.

On the 87" , mine will come today aslo, it is topping off right now, the wingspan is 85" So is the 88.5, 88.5 with the wings plugged in with them at the root, before they are pluuged in. Know what I mean??

It would help a lot to get a shot of it next to the 87" for comparison. I can't wait to try a Mike Hall tweaked Yak......

Anyone flown the 87" with the DX7 yet? I am loving it. Except for the kill switch placement.

First thing I said when I flew the 300e....Boy, I want a bigger one that flies like this......

Thanks, Chris.
