Alert
91" Extreme Flight Yak proto...

This is my "Voltaic Thunder" electric Yak that some of you may have seen.
I know BigMoeBBQ remembers it... I think I startled him with it once at eWeek
Anyhow, like the 88" Yak I'm selling, I'm only ditching in favor of a smaller size.
I've just about settled on 78" and below, as they seem to suit me best.

This was the first EF 91" Yak, as I recall.
It's basically the 88" Fuse/cowl/canopy with bigger wings and HUGE elevators.
Daniel Holman demo'd this plane at 'Nall last year with a DA-60.
I believe Chris is taking another design pass, so this is likely a one-off bird.

My graphics won't be everyone's cup of tea, but they'll peel off.
The scheme is a modified Russian Thunder with the tail more like the RWB Edge scheme but without the silver.
I'm hanging onto my power setup for a future project
EDIT: I was just enlightened that the scheme on the tail of this one is actually like the current scheme on the real Russian Thunder... which is also for sale!
Heck, buy 'em both

Setup:
JR R921 recvr w/2 satellites
5x HS-7950TH (High voltage) w/SWB arms
2s2p Thunder Power 2100 receiver battery
6v voltage regulator (lightweight pattern style, for ignition use)
Two cowls.(One uncut with Rimfire 65cc graphic, and one cut for DA-60, with DA graphic)
Never used spats and cowl plate thrown in.
Bolt on your powerplant, add a throttle servo, if gas, and go flying.

$1200 Airframe plus the above setup. (I'm keeping my powerplant at this time)
$1100 If you don't want the R921 receiver.
$600 Airframe only, w/control linkages (but not the servo arms themselves)


Might consider trades or partial trades, 60"-78" EF preferred.
Just tossin it out there. Never know.

I really need to get that motor from you before something happens to it.
I have other plans for it.

I wanted to do a big electric, just to say I had... and now I'm over it
If I don't sell it, I will be fitting a DA-60 to it next year.

Ain't nothing to it but to do it
Anyone local that will take it all this week... I'll knock $50 off for a new canopy. EF has them in stock.
It has two perfectly serviceable canopies with it, but one has a hazy spot from an acetone boo boo, and the other has a crack that was repaired. (Which is the canopy I've been flying)

Trade pending, for airframe only.
Looks like that would leave me with a very nice setup for a 78" MXS whenever they come

Airframe trading supposed to go down on Sunday, actually.
Would've loved to have sold you the works

Traded my Yak... airframe only for:
60" Extreme Flight Edge, receiver ready, with a BNIB Torque 4016T-500 in addition to the Hacker A50 14XSv2.1 already installed, plus a couple Thunder Power 6S 3850's
Can't wait to fly this thing. Not counting foamies, the only Edge I've flown so far is the 88" one.

Sounds like a fair deal!

Yeah, I'm happy with the deal, and he seemed to be as well, to drive as far as he did to make it happen.
A nice guy named Russ drove from somewhere in Egypt(Or maybe Kentucky) to make the trade
Maybe he'll take it to 'Nall next year.
