Default New Somenized (TM) 69", Yak-54

I'm all excited about the 69" Yak-54. So, I'm on here beggin' for more info! Is a release date set yet? pricing?
Would a 38oz (AUW) 26cc gas engine be appropriate? Very excited.

I just got an email back from them and they don't have a date or pricing yet. If you go to their web site and send them an email, they will notify you when they have more info.

Hi Dave,

I just got the prototype 69" to write the manual for it. I will post pictures. Plane is absolutely gorgeous and we should have them in 3 months or so. As far as gas engine goes, I'm not sure it would be a very good idea but I will keep everyone posted of what we think would give you the best combination. My plane will be set up with OS 1.20 two stroke as Quique recommneds it. So manual will be written based upon that.

Regards,
Reza

There is obviously more than a small interest in putting a small gas engine in this size plane, come on QQ be the first to make a purpose made small plane for gas, or at least provision to mod to accept gas, it would just take a little room to install the exhast I think, as I don't know how much room there is inside the cowl to accomadate it I am assuming.

Hi David, I'd Like get the Photos of 69" QQ Yak-54. Are You going Post Instruction Assemble Manual? I'm Just Finishing Building 67" Carl Goldberg Yak 54 and I Used the OS 120 AX Engine in it. You Can See someof My Planes in My Hangar on this website user name richgrow. So far My Showtime 90 with OS 120 AX Engine is My Favorite Flying 3D/4D Plane. Really like SFG on all the time. Hoping Yak-54 Flies as good. What Projected Price of QQ Yak-54?

I'd like to say a YS 110 or Saito 150 are good choices but I will need to see the performance with OS 1.20 first before I make a definitive comment on that.

Regards,
Reza

Rezagh, if it comes in around 8.5lbs, a Saito 125 might do fine, providing its not too tail heavy? It will also depend on the altitude.
Thank you Mike.

I am attaching some pics of this kit that I am working on to write the assembly manual. Are you guys interested in a build thread as well. It may be too soon since plane won't be available until next couple of months.

Thank you,
Reza

Hello, qqaircraft does not work but with YS engines? because they recommend for this model OS 120, instead of YS 110.

Greetings.

Hi Reza, I see markers for YS and OS. None for Saito?

What is the total length of the Yak?

And oh yes, a build thread is never too early

I'm very interested in the build. It will be a couple of months before I can aford one anyway. Hope its cost affective.

Is there an option to place the fuel tank closer to the CG? What is the total length of the Yak? Any videos? Thanks

Hi guys -- looking at this plane with interest as I have a YS110 that needs a new home. I must say, though, that the elevator situation on this one is freaking me out. I haven't seen a set up like this before. I like not having to adjust 2 elevator servos (my Tx can't do split elevators (fut 6exa)) and I like the weight savings from one less servo and matchbox. I am concerned that the goop from the engine can invade the airframe from the hole for the joining rod and I am also thinking that the initial building of the elevators will require a great deal more care and time to make sure they are equal. Is this the case? Could you detail the building process for the elevators?

Hi There,

What you mentioned is not the case. Detailed instruction will be available later.

Thank you,

You might want to think about using Hitec Digital, programmable servos for your elevator halves. That way you can use their programmer to set the direction and throw of each servo. No extra matchbox and your radio doesn't have to handle it. That's the way I did my GP Patty Wagstaff, 300 Extra. Works great.

But what he said was that the 69" uses ONE elevator servo with the elevator halves joined.
The same way we flew for all those years before the gassers came in. The "younger set" is not used to this configuration and on this model the fuselage is slotted to allow free movement of the joiner and still provide 3D throws.

I believe that is the crux of his question not servo matching.

Onewasp,

You're absolutely correct. I misread Isaacslaw's post. I guess I incorrectly assumed that this size plane would utilize two elevator servos. It's interesting that the setup on my Venus uses one elevator servo but two separate pushrods can be indepently adjusted so joiner rod alignment is not an issue. BTW, what does "younger set" mean? I'm 52- I guess I'm young.

Default RE: 69" QQ Yak-54

guys:

having one elevator servo doesn't bother me -- in fact I think it could be easier to set up and definitely less weight. My only concern is that sometimes my YS110 is a bit richer than it should be and maybe some of the engine goop could get inside the fuse back there through the slot for the connecting rod.

I have been looking at this plane a lot and thinking it would be perfect for the 110. honestly even if the goop gets in there, I would probably still get it. I was watching some of the live coverage from Toledo on flying giants and saw QQ talking about it. He was only able to spend a minute or so on it, but said it only weighs 8 1/2 pounds and that he was proud of it -- that's good enough for me. Just looking to better understand it and really just wanting more pics, vids and build threads

was the later balance difficult with that OS mounted sideways? I think I'm gonnna mount my 110 inverted just to be safe because they have no trouble running inverted.
