I wish this yak would have come out a month ago, I would have got one of them besides. the 51'' AJ slick. Tho I have a feeling I will like my slick. This airplane is next on my list once I get the money and the plane is released. I hope this plane comes out this summer. To bad they can not make these in the good old USA, maybe someday.

at least they are designed here and the profits stay here, that is a big plus in my opinion. I too like this plane and it remids me of the old Cap 21 and ZLINs and stuff of my RC youth....

That is true I am happy that some Americans are at least getting some of my money, I just wish we did it all here.

you will LOVE your 51 slick.Manta promises.As far as makin em here,the planes and electronics,unfortunatley would not be at all affordable if they were made in usa.We would all be flying paper planes out of notebook paper im afraid.I think it is safe to say most of ud would rather they be "made in the USA"but the design,he assembly,and the flying and subsequent crashes are all in the USA

I agree with Manta.......even though they aren't made here, they get re-kitted here.

There's something about the big round cowling on a Russian Yak (kind of like the thick ankles on a Russian woman). You either love it or you don't ;-)

My favorite part of this plane is the bubble canopy and round rudder. But I know the eventually when I get one of these thing it will not stay that shape for long..

I hope they post another video of this beautiful bird soon. I would love to see a video of it flying in the day without much wind.
