the yak got put on the back burner for a while but in the last few months we have been working on it, actually the designer was laying up the cowl today. Hopefully in the next few weeks we will have some more information and some pictures to share with everyone.

The Yak is in the process of being covered. It should only be a couple more weeks before we take it out to the field. We will post specs and pictures then.

I can see this being a very popular model. Lots of people with the kit for 50cc models that have not built anything in a long time and are waiting to have a go.

55M can also be built as a scale or freestyle model.

I am sure we will be seeing a lot of these.

We had a very suscessful day yesterday. We had two great flights on the YAK. This Yak is designed by Tom Miller and we will be cutting the kit. We still are doing some refinements on how it builds before releasing the kit.

Powered by a DA 50
wing span 90"

It flew great

more to come

Chuck,

WE have a couple flying one with a DA50 the other with a DLE 60 twin. I have to get with Tom and figure out a material list and see what he has together. He is working on a Staudacher electric version / 30cc which he just flew in a local IMAC contest. I'll get back to you and let you know hopefully in a couple days. make that in a week or so I have knee surgery Friday.

good luck with your surgery. I'm glad you're keeping Tom busy, As we all know, a busy geezer is a happy geezer!
