They look fantastic. I've got the smaller Primus and absolutely love it. Can't wait to find out more about these aircraft.

Perhaps Feda (BestValue RC) might know something about these?

Yes, the plane is in production. I will make it available as soon as the kits are rolling off Hokusei's factory in China. Thank you for checking out BestValueRC.com.

Sounds good Feda,ive been wanting to try out hokusei planes for quite some time,there yak 55m looks like a really good size and so do there other HV series planes. Any idea what there 50cc pattern plane will sell for? Im sure it would be pricey to ship but it looks really nice and there are not many 50cc pattern planes .

Yep, I like the look of the Primus also.
Seems a nice size and able to take 2200 3s size lipos!

Any more pics or info?

Me too. I've got lots of 2200 3s lipos ideal for these planes.

From the Yak 55 videos it looks like a great flier (could be the talented pilot also).

I'd like to give both of them a go.

I hope the AUW isn't too heavy. If it comes in under 34 oz that would be great.

I've ordered the Yak (red). Has anyone here seen or flown one yet. Looks good from the video. Can someone compare it to the Skywing Yak54 V2? Here is the video I like best:

Finally got this in the air. Running a Torque 2818-900,airboss 45 ESC, cheaper e-max MG servos, which work great fot his application BTW, and 2200 25c Rhino's. Flies great, very easy to hover, nice and easy KE spins, KE's easy with no pull either way. Nice straight lines. Advertised at I believe around 37 oz's AUW, which it is around 37-38 oz's. Very nice, graceful flier. I do wish it was 3-4 oz's lighter however. I also put an extra magnet on the canopy just for piece of mind. Good plane, makes me look good anyway. Sorry no px's or video.
