I got a few more flights on the Hyperion Yak. Really like this plane.

I'm still getting used to it, so I've been very easy on it so far. I did let another serious 3D acrobatic pilot take it for a spin, and he did a lot of nice maneuvers with it. I asked if there was anything not setup correctly or in need of adjustment, and he said no ... just need to turn up the throws on high rates.

The battery is a 5S 4000 mAH pack and seems about right. Now I just need to get a couple more packs so I get more flights in.

Got a chance to fly my new 40e size Yak for the first time. Short flight, but fun.

Flying with the 'bundle' motor / 80A esc combo. 5S 4000 mAH pack. CC Bec.
Prop is 15" x 8.5" APC. 5 lbs 8 oz. total weight. 1100 watts in at full throttle.

Very high powered and fast combo. I just flew a few circuits and landed. Landing was pretty smooth. Nice performing plane. Hope to fly it again soon.
