Of course every air frame has differences its just people are rating the Yak like it should fly like a flat foam plane, it does not it flies like a balsa 3d plane.

If you can fly 3D stuff with your Slick you can do it with the Yak.
Yes, it flies in the same league as a number of popular 48-51" balsa freestyle planes. It isn't a real light floaty profile plane, it is a relatively scale plane that can fly a lot of pattern, 3D and sport aerobatics. Some of it's competition are a bit more floaty, but don't snap as well, or carry as much momentum into moves, others fly a bit heavier, and can't harrier or hover as well, few are as powerful and fast while still remaining as light and floaty, just a couple of the best. The wing loading is about 16oz per sq ft, almost identical to the 51" Slick(that I also have), the Slick has more control authority, and can feel a bit floatier and more stable, it's due to the design, not the weight, wing area, or wing loading.
