It comes with basic decal set applied. The extra bling you see on some costs extra $$$. The pic is of stock plane.

there are no decals, the plane comes as you see in the picture, in my opinion it is such a good scheme that it really doesn't require decals.

Well I finally got to fly this bird. I did not think I would ever say I would like a plane better than the 47'' extra shp. However I can say it about this plane. I Hope they make a 60'' yak 55.

I do not understand why this airplane is not popular? it has to be one of the best 3dhs has in this size.

looks like they need to get joe smith to start flying a couple of these at some fly-ins to show everyone what a capable and diverse airplane it is.

Ben flew the snot out of one at the FLI east. it's a very capable airframe, I have a feeling it just suffers from the fact that it's not an edge or an extra or a slick.

I have flown and own a 51'' slick 48'' edge and 47'' extra and can say this yak 55 has them all beat. And I only have about ten flights on this yak 55

Broken carbon fiber landing gear, resolved!! Not the prettiest of jobs, but it is strong and ready to fly again. I was getting tired of waiting for them to come back in stock. So I rapped the gear in carbon fibre tape and then soaked with thin CA to harden. Stiff as a board.
