Fair enough. All I have to compare right now is the 38" Yak-54 and the 40" Yak-55SP I accidentally dropped in a lake (when the radio cut
). Unfortunately for comparison purposes, the '54 has minimal bracing, while the '55 has a braced tail and rear fuse.
Either way, I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE them both! Just feel instantly comfortable--even if I haven't flown them in months.
