I owned the Yak Carbon Z. It was a nice sport plane, but for post stall 3D it was a real handful. I sold it as the 3DHS 41" edge was soooo much easier to 3D. (3DHS 48" Edge is even easier )

The Balsa planes are much stronger than the foam. The hinges snaped off the Carbon z really easily, the elevator counter balance break off in the grass, servo problems right out of the box..... Now, when you slam the carbon Z into the pavement at full throttle it's very repairable. Balsa plane, you have a lot of work ahead of you.
