The Schwing was recently installed with a motor and now flies in the backyard! Only a few flights with both 2S and 3S Li-Po battery packs because it was *VERY* hot outside! Hopefully I'll be able to get down to the field (high school) to fly it around more than just straight one way and straight back the other way LOL.
Thanks for subscribing! If this flies that will be my full-time high school flying plane (mostly on the weekends) and I'll keep the Crack Yak flying in my backyard. However flying both planes in one day is a hassle because I own only the Spektrum DX4e... (only 1 model memory). But heck I couldn't care less because this is probably the first time when I've had more than 1 plane that can actually fly on a regular basis.
Compilation of my first flying session/flights with the Twisted Hobbys Crack Yak. Lots of fun, minimal hard crashes and overall an awesome plane that I'm loving now that I upgraded to metal geared servos!

This video should give you a good idea for what to do for the competition.
Testing an APC 9x3.8 Slow-Fly prop with my Crack Yak on the stock power combo. It's OK but doesn't have enough thrust for real hovering and 3D. It just doesn't give as much air going over the control surfaces in my opinion. I'll stick to a 9x4.7 propeller instead.
LOL the prop ejected itself from the plane in mid air! Luckily it was easy to land without any power (low to the ground). Check out the flying prop... pretty neat! This was the testing of the APC 9x3.8 prop for the Crack Yak... it didn't do good, not enough thrust. I'll definitely stick with the 9x4.7 props and save that one as a backup for simple 3D flying.
My epic edit of glide testing the Schwing. It has a large, heavy 4 AA battery RX pack but still glides really well in my opinion, especially with those weak, small throws that I was doing with it! Once I get this all set up right with a smaller battery it's going to be AWESOME!!!!! Stay tuned and thanks for subscribing!
