The Yak is not a bi-plane, but the Pitts is. Page 33 of the Crack Pitts manual states:

Center of Gravity:
Location of battery will determine you final center of gravity. Balance model upside down measuring 185mm (7.28) back from the nose (motor mount) which comes roughly to lower wood spar . Use this location as a starting point and and move battery till model seems horizontally balanced. This location will give you a near neutral balance flight.

Joe Smith in Dubai

Check out that Princes hangar.
I am the richest guy into RC in the world...I'm going to fly over one of the best 3D pilots and his dad to build my plane and test fly it.
WTH!!

Joe Smiths Dubai Adventure Hanger Flight 1 (6 min 16 sec)



We manufactured a bunch of glow in the dark porcelain signs and shipped them over there a couple years ago. Hard to QC given I couldn't read a thing that was printed other than the hazard sign. I think that it universal.

rehab didnt look to bad, nice to see dw foamies finally getting into the epp market but they say 10oz for thier test model. they need to work on the weight more. even my stock heavy slicko is only 9.2 oz with battery. i am glad slevelmaa recomende the plane to me its a riot to fly.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1681786 this is the build for the plane and they are redesigning the plane right now with lighter items it should be a blast to fly.

oh ya and i dont know if you guys have met maxxnut the starter of the thread but hes in arlington area and i know he has a prototype of the new version, would be great if one of you guys got ahold of him to do a flying vid for him.

The DWs do not look like Crack yaks imho. The wings on the DW are more tapered, the tail is longer and the elevators are way different.

Those new DWS look awesome, I know Mike has been working hard on EPP planes as an answer to the popularity of the Crack planes. More foamies = more fun.
