New E-flite Carbon-Z Yak 54 3x -BNF
This looks very cool,firstly-i could not find any thread on it here and i was excited to start a discussion on it so here goes.i presume what's new here is the addition of AS3X which will really make this intresting for me and a lot of others,also the new metal geared micro mini servos look great,i think this plane will have a huge flight envelope and will be one hot machine for 3D,i myself love this size too as it's nice and handy and can be transported easily enough,i think this will be awesome to fly!
From experience with AS3X i can only reccomend it to the higest level for any aspiring 3D pilot,my main intrest at the moment is 3D flight,i started flying 3D only may 2013 and i can say from experience that AS3X really helps you a LOT.i have flown one of my planes without it and you can find you need to do a lot more corrections for turbulence and wind,so if it's in the plane it's a welcome bonus if you are relatively new or even a 3D veteran. (just in my opinion) when i see a new model plane now i am delighted when i see it comes with AS3X,just makes the flying easier and lets us focus on our flying more.
Really looks like an amazing spec,with 4cell power i think it is going to be very exiting not to mention it comes with a battery included,i can't wait to see more on this one,i really think it's beautiful and i will of course be having one
When the original Carbon-Z® Yak 54 3D was introduced it broke new ground in out-of-the-box 3D performance expectations. Back by popular demand, this new version of the Carbon-Z Yak 54 3X is better than even we thought was possible. That claim is due largely to the advanced AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) system built into the Spektrum™ AR635 receiver installed because it enables the Carbon-Z Yak 54 3X to have a wider flight envelope and incredible stability. AS3X technology works behind the scenes to help counter the effects of wind and turbulence so that your workload to fly smoothly is greatly reduced. As a result, the confidence you need to explore 3D aerobatics is able to develop more quickly. You can even adjust the amount of assistance the AS3X system provides or turn it off completely, but even 3D pros will find flying with it on feels completely natural.
On the inside, the hollow Z-foam™ structure is precisely fused with carbon and composites so the airframe can take an extreme beating while offering precision control that rivals a high-end, full-composite aerobat. The entire airframe features strength enhancements so it can withstand today’s new level of aggressive 3D flight endurance expectations. Its power-to-weight ratio is still 2:1, but the upgraded speed control hosts a more robust BEC so its complement of updated digital servos can deliver peak precision. All combined, the new Carbon-Z Yak 54 3X catapults what you should expect in a 3D precision airplane to a higher level, yet still offers the ability to be flight ready in the time it takes to charge a flight battery.
Whether you’re an intermediate pilot looking for a performance upgrade, or a 3D hotshot, the E-flite Carbon-Z Yak 54 3X is ideal. This value packed aircraft even includes a high-output E-flite 2800mAh 14.4V 4S 30C Li-Po battery. All that’s needed to start flying right away is a 4S Li-Po balance charger and your favorite 4+ channel DSM2™/DSMX® aircraft transmitter with adjustable D/R and Expo.

This new Yak is bigger in length of the fuselage and is a bit lighter than the old one. So it should be even better to handle.
Depending on the price oft the PNP version, I would give it a shot.

intresting about the fuselage,of course this new carbon z technology is just unreal....

Actually the plane is dimensionally the same as the first version. I'm hoping everything is interchangeable since I would like and need a new fuse.

Don't know that I've ever seen a new one just announced on e-flite site and not on Horizon Hobby. At first I wondered where this came from as HH wasn't showing it. It might be interesting, but can't decide if it's an upgrade or downgrade in some ways. Are CA hinges going to be as good or better than the hinges on the old version? That's probably where some of the weight came off from though.

I love the new CS on it, it'll be really easy to see in the air. Correct me if I'm wrong, but is this one cheaper than the original?
