Thanks Rob.
I understand manufacture is nothing you control directly. I appreciate the folllow up and customer service.

The landing gear seems to be correct size, both holes however are incorrect position and spacing so will need to re-drill both until a new set arrive.
Seems from the above thread landing gear comments something is wrong at point of manufacture.

However if anyone is interested in a set right now I do have a couple more sets cut.

$14 is what I'm looking for them shipping included for anywhere in the US.

PM me if interested.

PM sent.

I would like to get a set. Broke mine on an unfortunate terra firma incident.

What motor does everyone like best in the 46''? I was looking at the 103g omega or 130g omega.

i find the A30-12L V2 with the Falcon 13x6.5 on 3S is a very efficient set up

Well...The YAK 55 is finished and successful maiden completed.

As per my previous posts I unfortunately received a YAK that was not initially as great out of the box as most others have experienced.
The landing gear had to be totally redrilled. The LG blind screws were on an angle. Canopy hatch drilled twice in the wrong position, cowl dented/blistered and unfortunately the covering around the tail area not applied well.

Ok........however. THIS PLANE IS AWESOME. Ran 3 batteries through the Yak today in perfect conditions and was VERY impressed. The maiden was totally stress free, it flies like it is on rails looks great in the sky and lands like a kitten. Can't wait until I can fly ity again and get it really dialled in and CG set and add the SFGs. For initial flight set CG at 3". I rank myself an intermediate + flyer but on the first flight was doing a few knife edge passes and some nice harriers. Inverted flight needed just a tiny touch of "up".

My chosen setup using Rimfire .15 with 12x6 whilst not the recommended one performed well and provided unlimited vertical. At static 526W @ 48amps. Flew for 6 minutes using a 30c 2200mAH battery and came down with 3.78v per cell.

Have filmed the maiden so will post when processed.

526w isn't bad on this plane for sure....congrats. 6min to 3.78v is pretty close to what I fly also.

received mine a few days ago, they worked great, only thing i had to do was open the holes a little bit to get everything to line up, havnt flown with them yet, will give a report when i do so, looks like a winner overall

Thanks for the feedback. The holes do just seem to need a touch of tweaking on each plane. I could drill them out bigger but they would be less accurate. Right now I'm plunging the holes and if you try to cut a small circle the results are less then consistant.

Looking forward to what you think of them in the air. I love the looks of the plane without the SFG's but having the added surface is nice as well.
