We get a lot of ideas and feedback about the YAK55M 37% from our pilots. That's why is the airplane great for pattern and 3D flying! Many pilots like it because of its clarity. We took these ideas and made some small changes with setup and material use. Now you can get a stronger and lighter airplane with even better flying characteristics.
Perhaps the most welcomed change is we have started to use a wing tube instead of the wing spar. This the wing in stronger because inside are two wing spars. The anodized aluminum tube will provide even more strength, then spar.
So no more spars sticking out of wing bags.
We are also introducing a new 3D ailerons. About 30% more area than regular ones, center hinged and removable. But this comes with a “price”. 4 high torque servos ( JR 8711) per aileron are needed. This way for all which love 3D flying .... roll with this the wings are Amazing!
Also please note that 3D ailerons can only be made to a new set of wings at the time of your order. Unfortunately, these cannot be fitted into existing wings with spars!!
As usual, all parts are composite. Canopy glued into a canopy frame, matching your paint scheme.
Wing spars are carbon fiber and aluminum stab tubes are used. The airplane is completely built with all bulkheads glued in place.
C/F engine dome (already have a right thrust build in).
CNC rudder servo tray.
CNC fuel tanks holders.
CNC F/G horns.
Screws, nuts, and washers
Spinner is not included, however we offer a large selection of our spinners you can choose from.
Description of individual parts:
Fuselage - vacuum bagged sandwich with all bulkheads installed for you.
Wings - vacuum bagged sandwich with full span carbon fiber spar. This creates incredible strength and increases lifespan. Each wing was designed for 3 servos, all servo bays are already boxed to eliminate any possible twists when servos are " working".
Stab - vacuum bagged sandwich. The elevator part is attached using a brass rod through F/G hinges. The same way it's done on full-size airplanes. 2 servo bays in each half already boxed same way as in the wings. Stabs are attached to the fuselage with 2 aluminum tubes 18mm dia ( 3/4" ) and secured with 2 x M3 screws from the bottom of the stab.
Rudder - vacuum bagged sandwich, mounted to fin same way as the elevator. For ease of transportation, the rudder is removable.
Canopy/frame - the only clear canopy is available. Glued into canopy frame for you and matched to your paint scheme.
Cowl - vacuum bagged sandwich. Attached to the fuselage using 8-10 screws M4.
Landing gear and wheel pants - F/G parts, using our latest technology. Very light and incredibly strong. Wheel pants will accept 130mm ( 5" ) wheels.
This airplane is offered in our new line of designs. Some were designed after full-size paint schemes.
But it can also be ordered in a basic two-tone color scheme, using the RAL color chart.
