Hello everyone.

Here is a link to the 50cc yak kit that I am putting out with Greg at Charlotte Aircraft Modeling.


We have a few of these planes out and have just started selling the kits. As far as I know this is the only 50cc kit that is available. The plane flies great!
If anyone is interested in a kit this is the link to Greg's site. You can order them from him. Any questions about the plane you can post here or on the build thread.


Have a good one!

Been getting a little done on the instructions. Just thought I would throw in a post and bring this thing back up. Here is a look at the elevator.

Next I use a cone shaped grinding stone in my drill press to make the reliefe for the hinge knuckle. Glue the beveld stab and elevator peices in place. Take extra time to get them centered on the surfaces. You also need to shorten the peice that will be glued to the stab. When every thing is glued in place there should be a 1/8" gap between the stab and the counter balance of the elevator. I glue the beveled peices on with tightbond wood glue. Gorilla glue will expand into the holes that you have drilled for the hinges and can cause a bit to move off center when you redrill the holes. Use plenty of tape to securly hold the beveled peices in place. Once dry sand them flush with the sheeting. Drill through the holed into the foam and you are done. I get a little over 60 degrees deflection by doing it this way and no hinge gap.
