Sloyak28" 32"

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"

Building

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.

Parts used on plane kit


1 sheet 18 x 36 1.3# 9mm epp foam
2. 3mm x 1000mm carbon rods or tubes
1. blue wonder 1300kv outrunner From Hobby King.

1. gws 9050 prop
1. 7.4 volt 300-500 mah (20C) lipo (remember ligher is better) 250-350mah is what I like.

2. dubro Micro Control Horn- Narrow #848
1. dubro Micro E/Z Link #849
1. dubro 30” Micro Pushrod System #852
1. 1/32 sheet of lite ply (used for control horn stiffners)
1. 5 minute epoxy
1. hot glue gun with low temp sticks
1. roll strapping tape (staples) the kind with fiberglass strings in it.
1. x-acto knife # 11 blades
1. medal straight edge ruler 18" or longer works best.
