Hi Richard, I've been flying mine all summer without a hitch! Well except I sheared all the prop bolts on my DA100 the last day of the DOGS show! I need to remember to check those bolts about every dozen flights of so. [:@]

Hello Mike, Flying today in Florida , very cold but no snow. I'm still enjoying the plane and still would like to see more photos on the plane from other pilots.

Hello, I use a 3 blade Air models 25 x 12 prop for my DA 100 . It is a very good and quiet prop. Desert Aircraft have them . It helps keep the noise down and pulls very good. Guys that fly 3 D usually use 2 blade props with more noise. the plane is going back to Florida this winter and it is a winner

I finished mine last week and made first flight at the end of the week. I am very happy with the way the plane flies. Straight off the board with no trim changes. I tracks very well and Looks Awesome in the air. I don't fly 3D, but I am sure it would do it without blinking an eye. I installed a trusty DA100 with stock mufflers. I opened the covering over the canister tunnel to allow hot air to escape. No problems with over heating. I have 12 flights on it now and am using a Mej 28 X10 prop. It is loud and luckily where I fly no one cares. I do have canisters for it, but need to buy headers. Then I will install a new cowl. So far the flying makes me grin and the landings bring applause from spectators. It is a keeper.
BTW here are a couple of pictures.

I just received my ARF and have checked out the instruction manual before building. I noticed that only one aileron servo opening per wing panel is uncovered. Can you safely run one aileron servo per wing panel without flutter etc.? If so, I'd like to use a single Hitec 5955, which was more than adequate on my 34% Planes Plus Extra.

Some folks may say yes but I always run two on the 100 cc models. My recommendation is to run two servos and either program them to match or use a matchbox.

I have been flying my EG YAK now for almost two (2) years and I am still having a lot of fun with the plane. I can't remember how many flights I have on the airframe, but I am sure I have burned about 10 gallons of gas through the engine. The plane is beginning to show some age. I think I need to replace the horizontal stabs, as there is some slop starting to show up in the sockets. I did have a roll issue a couple of weeks ago and that lead me to the stabs. I shimmed up the carbon fiber tube with some packing take and it took care of the problem and last time out the issue seems to be remedied for now. I know this is a temporary fix and will have to make better ones shortly (new stabs if available)
Has anyone else had this problem with theri stabs?
