Ok everyone I took two great epp planes and made
a few changes to them and made what I think is a
even better plane!
I call it the SLoYak28
the plane was designed around the slofly28 designed
by Sloper Steve& Gene bond
to build this kit you need to download the 2 sets of plans
below "they are free of course"
print and tape together the 2 fuselage parts of both planes
and the tail section of the Yak55 (just the rudder piece)
also tape together the wings and the elevator pieces from the
slofly28 set of plans.
I used standard 8 1/2 x 11 typing paper.
(tip if you printer will take card stock use it as it makes
a better template)
Stay tuned a video will show you the basics of how I merge
the two plans to build one.
