Default Comp Arf Yak Photo's

Thought I'd post a few photos of my completed 2.6 YAk 55sp. This has been one Awsome plane. Been flying it for about 1 month. I've finally finished the Graphics package:

Power: 3W 106 w/ 3W cannisters
3W 27x10 woody, 3W 26x11 carbon 3bl.
RX JR 649PCM
Smartfly Power Expander
Smartfly Super Regulator
Smartfly HD Switches
(3) TBM 2cell 2800mah Litium-ions
(4) Hitec 5645's on ail's
(2) Hitec 5945's on elev
(2) Hitec 5955TG's on rudder
(1) Hitec 645 on throttle
(1) Hitec 645 on choke
Wieght: Right at 30lbs. (little heavy) but flies like a feather with plenty of power.

All factory mold lines removed (complete bodywork)
Painted with PPG Automotive Base/Clear Flex clear
Trimmed with my cut vinyl graphics generated on my computer and cutter

Special Thanks to flynrazorback for the set up help, SmartFly and TBM "Great products and service!"

If you get teh chande to measure it I would appreciated it. I am chasing 94db on a DA100 at 3m. So far I have got 95.5db with a 25x12 3blade.

Wow, 9 lbs more than mine, I can't even grasp it. I couldn't do that even on a bad day.

Good luck!

Happy flying! Carden is waiting for you!!!

Actually I just re-wieghed it on a better scale. Its 28lbs still heavier than most Comp Arfs but it flies awsome. So I'm not worried about it much more. I still cant believe yours is at 21lbs RTF. That's amazing. Is that with the gear?

It's an additive mixed into the clear 1:10 Prevents cracking on flexible surfaces. Same stuff used on automotive bumpers and plastic body parts that require paint.
