New EPP Yakk 55
 
FEB 19th
New EPP Yakk 55

This is what I've got down so far. Spent the last 2 days building...
Im not sure if i want too use those Motor Standoff motor mounts or just make a round one form Ply.. Most of my Flying with well outside. With Wind/light brezzes.

GOOP on the hinges. Did a few test hinges at first form Scrapes. Im very Pleased. On the main fuse Joints i uses White Gorilla Glue..Works Great!! Very light and Super Flexible.

I don't have the Upper Fuse glued yet,waiting for my Order From HK for those Stand Off Motor Mounts.

So far im am very happy with EPP..:)

Finished mine this evening...Did a few Hovers in the Bedroom. Very nice..And that EPP sure is Tuff... the Walls are no Match...:p I used WHite Gorerlla Glue everywhere (except for Hinges(GooP). Light/Flexable)
I'm hooked...;0)
I was going too head to the School Parking lot that is well lit,but its snowing outside now. Cant wait too really fly her outside.

I ended up using HK 3.7g's for the R/E...Right now with the 3s 500Mah(50g) Battery, I'm weighing in about 210g...All my Flying is outside. So the bit of extra weight well be fine.. She still hovers great. Later ill get some lighter batt's.

Im also using .032 Wire with HK Light Quick connects. I surely could shave some weight if i went with CF Push-rods.

But im happy with her.the 1700 BW Kicks A$$
Heres are some more Pictures

3DHS Style Servo arms ,made form Light balsa,then coated with CA to seal/stiffen.

Same home made Arms for more throw. the 3.7g's do not have long arms. Stock arm would not even give 30% Throw. even with TX settings Maxed.
