Found you!

Thanks for sending over the pictures of the plane. It looks great. I have subscribed to this thread so I can watch the progres. I tried to send you a email but it kept coming back as blocked. Don't know what is going on there. Things have been going good with my new designs. I am in negotiations with a kit cutter to sell kits of my planes. He has also asked me to design a line of profiles. I am currently working on scaling up the 100cc to 150cc. I am getting ready to start building the 100cc plane with some small design changes. Here are some pictures of the prototype 100cc yak at joe nall and a video of one of the planes being flown a couple of weeks back.

Looks pretty impresive. I hope you can get it over to the states so I can check it out in person. I am about 75% finished with my 150cc drawings. The biggest pain is drawing the tunnel. The tunnel makes everything harder but guys want to be able to run cans or tuned pipes. Keep the pictures coming.

Default RE: 60 % yak 54

Hi Brent,

Thats the one thing i decided to get rid of on my design, i didnt see the point in it, the reason is, on my composite arf extra, the pipes just run right through and on my composite pitts the greeves pipes ( 3 foot long) run straight through, without a tunnel.people think that pipes get hot, i belted my extra round the sky at full chat for 10 mins, and then measured how hot the pipes got, they got to 47 degrees... as long as they have airflow over them and a methord of getting out the hot air ( out fuselage) there is no problem

i think manufactures suggest the pipes are mounted with a 10mm gap around them as a minimum.....with air flow around them, so i wouldnt worry too much about it mate

ohh btw, engine has changed from origanal suggested above.. its now going to be 3W 342 TS as i have been sponsored by 3w
and the weight is going to be 95 lbs

i did a comparisn to my composite arf 3.1 meter extra as well.........

Wingloading on super extra

39 oz per square foot.

Wing Loading on 60 % Yak 54

36 oz per square foot.

Power to weight ratio of super extra

42.9 oz thrust per pound

Power to weight raition of yak

52 oz of thruse per pound .

I like those numbers. It looks like I missed the weight of the plane by about 5 lbs. I think I was guessint it between 85-90. That 342 actually put out around 300Lbs of thrust? That is unreal. At those wing loading figures that thing is going to fly foamy light.

Default RE: 60 % yak 54

hi,

I'm from Belgium and I'm looking for a plan from 80 inch.
Would you like to share the plan of the yak 54?
I like to build my own planes but I'm tired of ARF planes
Would you help me with it?

best regards

ivan baeyens
