Giant Model Products 57" Yak 55M

I bought this from Giant Model Products (GMP). It went together in a few evenings and the quality is really good. Here's some pictures.

Here's a link to the plane. I thought it was a great deal for $200.00.

The weather has been really bad so I haven't had a chance to maiden the Yak yet. I can't wait for some decent weather.

I had a chance to fly it Friday. It flew great. very precise and required no mixing. It was gusting up to 15 mph but the Yak handled it just fine. I wasn't sure if 4S would be enough power but it was more than plenty. It hovers at 1/2 throttle and is very stable in upright and inverted harriers. I really like how it flys. Here's some pictures of it at the field.
