I've always love the look of the Yak, but not fond of the wild ride flying characteristics. But with an AJ or Scott Stoops Yak, I'm all in! Dang, I also want a 3DHS foamie and "Backyard Balsa" plane, but I'm soooo poor. What to do?

Sweet landing from a Roller, but I think he stole that technique from Joe.

Guys - I'm really glad we got everything done enough so that AJ could introduce his new Yak at Octoberfest. He's still tweaking (the guys at the field today got to see some tweaking in progress) but it appears to be making him happy. This airplane is aimed at being *very* precise for its size, and fully 3D capable as well. I'll update as things progress.

Well it looks great. I'm a Yak 55 fan.

I'll be the first to ask... Is there an ETA on these, or is it one of those "still in development" projects?

the high roll rate was a blurr! the wind was very gusty and he would just fly it out of sight (in the dark) and back; in and out of the lights. that wasn't bad video, you were seeing, as it looked to us.
Bring them on, can't wait to fly one. Thanks AJ!

James,
You should edit the title to ALL YAKS 3DHS ! That'll cover the entire size lineup Still in 'recovery' from 4.5 days of total BLISS @ Oktoberfest Most were 8-9 ish till LATE (not AS late as the other Guerrillas ) ! Oh, and Apple flavored eVeRcLeAr (single serving !) for 3 nights As always, enjoyed hanging with you and your brother !!

It's more of a "putting on finishing touches" type thing. We actually got a few things sorted out today, with a few more left to do.

Ohh.. Joe! Man, he tore the sky up! as well as all the 3dhs pilots. But he was relentless. I don't think he even stopped to drink water. Ben, I think he matched your fly'n time, when you were at tiny. And It was a blast to get to see AJ debut some new projects. I think everyone is having a yak 55 a t t a c k Thanks for doin it in Austin, TX. Baby!
Keep em coming!
