Default Magic Hand 73' Yak

I got a Magic Hand 73' Yak 54 and just started

Magic Hand Yak 54
Eflite power 110 motor
castle 110amp speed controller
Hitec 5625s (4) 2 for elevator and 2 for wings
Hitec 5645 for rudder
all expert extentions 2 24' and 2 12'

so far this plane has been great! me and my dad are buildin it and we have put the elevator and rudder on and have put servos and horns and roods in so the tail is complete. the landing gear and tail wheel also. we are watin on the motor 2 come in, it should be here sometime next week. this plane went together really easy and fast.

the plane looked awesome out of the box.. the covering was super tight.. the plane is going together super fast..

in 2 hrs we had the tail feathers on it.. in 3 hrs we had all the servos in the tail.

Chris installed the Servos in the Wing.. already hinged and ready to go!!

should be getting the motor the first of the week.. then he can test fly it!!

TBM sells all Top Quality Items.. everything is in the box!! all labled and easy to read.

you can bet the next plane i get will be a TBM plane!!

sorry for not updating but we flew test flew the plane yesterday and it was very tail heavy with the 2 4s 3850mah batteries right n front of the wing tube and the rec and rec batt. about 2 1/2in. b hind the wind tube so we move the 2 4s batt. forward about 3in. into the motor box just under the esc and moved the rec batt right in front on the wing tube. then today we a piece of led on the stand off on the motor and i changed form a apc e17x8 to a evolution wood 19x8 and tried it. it was much better, it still just a tad tail heavy so im going to get a 3in spinner on to get just a little more weight and i think it will b just right other than that today the plane flew very well, it very solid very smooth and quiet and i just love the plane i did fly it long on those to packs b/c the plane has good power but could use a little more for 3d, its very persice and i cant wate to fly it more

Hi Chris,
Is going to 10s an option? A little more weight with the 5s packs so you can substitute power for the lead.
I did one of these planes but on 6s. I had to do 2 6s 5000's in P. to keep from adding dead weight. With my set up definitely not enough power due to the weight for 3d but was pretty good for precision flying & on 10K mah - me fly long time!

What did you end up doing? Batteries, spinner, etc?

You have any videos of you flying it? Sure is a nice looking plane!!
