Why do I always pound posts out, then come back and read them and need to modify?? Don't judge me on my first drafts...

No judgement here. I don't think I have written many posts that I haven't gone back re-read, re-thought, righted errors & revised, sometimes even a couple times.

I only wish that I could magically revise something I verbally blurted out & at times take back before any damage has been done.

Check out the new plane hauler. I could put a 50% plane in this thing.

Crack Yak S (Super) Reporting For Duty!

Setup
2x 4g Digital servos (rudder/elevator) Twisted Hobbys
1x 9g Digital servo (ailerons) Twisted Hobbys
Out-runner1450kv 24g Twisted Hobbys
Esc 12 Amp Twisted Hobbys
2s 325mah lipo battery Thunder Power
9x4.3 Tuff Prop
AUW 194g

Super Crack Enhancements
Cross drilled carbon spar & hollow carbon tube torsion bar.
Carbon tube reinforcement tail
Carbon Control horn, push rod guides, motor mount & landing Gear.
Micro Ball Links
Rubber bushing motor mounting for adjustable thrust angle.
Polystyrene angle stk motor / fuselage reinforcement
Blenderm tape reinforced hinge points

Notes
I think there is still an additional 20grams that could be shed. Lighter 19g motor / 20g Lipo / 5g hollow carbon spar / Less Welders glue usage / Etc. My custom hollow spar turned out too thick 7mm & too heavy 15g so I opted with plan B an extensively cross drilled & lightened solid carbon spar 3mm thick at 10g. The stk wood spar weighs 7g but was not nearly as torsionally stiff. I also ended up with slight alignment issue with the elevator servo, control arm & push rod guides which reduced elevator travel to 45 degree verse a potential 60. A Lesson learned for next build. We will see if all the effort and R&D makes any difference in flight performance.

For the Crack Yak, it's worthwhile to have an 8x4 propeller on hand for comparison - you may like it better than the 9x4.3.

Pretty good flying weight on that and it isn't the CYL.

I was sort of worried about the natural EPP hinges and figured I would slap hinge tape on at some point. I tore the edge of one hovering indoors and I ended up applying a thin layer of welders to the edges and center of each on the underside and they have been solid since. Welders is crazy good stuff for these. Goop(lowes) worked faster and cleaner and just as tough as the 2nd built with Welders and had a lighter frameweight of about 1/3oz. Could have weighed the foam to be sure it wasn't the glue which is a bit much for me but I was pretty positive I used the Welders a bit more sparingly.

The Goop cleaned up really good. Sort of dried out and rolled off when applying a bit of alcohol vs the Welders smearing. I'm not going to bother with Welders after this last tube is gone.
