I've been flying mostly at the park near my house, but I'll be coming down to the Mission Bay field more soon. Mike has something new in the works for me that'll require a bit more space..

Mine flies great. Broke it in all nice like with a few packs. The motor I have is a little weak, but I dont need anything super powerful. Just need to play with what prop I like and I'll be set.

My first 3D foamy is up and running thanks to recommendations and help from this forum, especially Xpress for his help on the build.

It's a 38" Yak with Himax 2812-0850, CC 25 ESC, TP 3S 1320, APC 11x4.7SF prop, Spektrum S75 servos, SR6000 receiver.

All I can say is that is an absolute joy to fly, I've never flown a 3D plane before and find this to be incredibly easy to fly. It needed no trim to fly level hands off.

Thanks again for the great recommendation.

Put another 6 flights on the 40" Juka today. IMO this is the outdoor foamy by which all others should be judged. It's just that good!
