i just tried adjusting the timing on a turnigy esc to high. it stopped squealing but the motor power dies off and then when i hooked my meter to it, it showed max 512watts and 52amps with a 11.1v battery and of course the motor was hot to the touch and smoking after about five seconds of testing.

I wouldn't use the digital servo's hobby king recommends on the Yak, 2 of mine stripped in pretty short order on this plane. If you do use them I would work the hinges in really good by flexing them to the extremes several times before hooking them up.

I normally cut my EPP hinges along the hinge line leaving about a inch every five or so inches intact. really loosens up the surfaces and I'm running HItec HS55 on the elevator and rudder with no problems,,, yet. I found that with the recommended servos it was tail heavy. I'm using the recommended servos on the ailerons. I really don't see a need to have the entire control surface hinged.

I leave the inboard and outboard EPP hinge point intact, and cut the hinge line for about 5 to 6 inches and leave an inch intact and repeat all the way along the hinge line.

Hope this is helpful,
Sam

Does the removable wing system work well? Are you guys gluing the wings or keeping them removable? Is the airframe stiff enough w/o glue?

My favorite plane at the moment is a Telink SU-29. I like the "big EPP" feel. However, the SU29 doesn't fit in the trunk of my car. So I end up dragging a flat foamy and an ultra-micro or two... but then the wind always kicks up and I wish I had the SU-29!

BUt honestly, there is a difference. Maybe you have to be a really good 3d pilot to really feel it... I don't know. BUt there is definitely a performance difference. It is up to the individual as to whether it is worth it to you. There is also, support, delivery and considerations relating to accessible information that are of value as well. Personally, I always feel better supporting high integrity small companies... They drive innovations and performance enhancing improvements. Again.. just my 2 cents.
Thanks very much.

I left mine removable for the first 100 or so flights and it worked fine. There was some flex in high g manuevers that had a slight effect on flight performance I noticed, but not bad. A longer wing rod might help with that. I'm with you on liking the "big EPP" feel..

Haven't read much good about these servos. Hard to beat the standard HXT-9 for a solid plastic geared servo. For metal, I like the MG-14s. The Coronas I've got have a good bit of gear slop. Haven't heard many others complain about them though.

Mine is ready for gear minus gluing in the control surface pieces,really considering a pull pull elevator and rudder since i'll be flying it on 3s 1300mah packs and a at2216 or similar outrunner so i left installing those parts for later. The airframe is rigid enough to work well with a pull pull set up,it will save weight and give me more options for balance probably. Glued in the spar and wings with welder glue and everything else,added a industrial size zip tie cut down for a tail skid as well. Really want to get this one flying soon and might borrow gear from another plane to get it flying next weekend maybe.

Great idea on the pull pull on the Yak, it is reallly well suited for it. I should of thought of that when I was stringing extension wires to the tail. I may just go back and do mine pull pull as well.

I'm really liking the looks of this. Kevin, are you satisfied with the 2217 on it? Your price for that motor is right in my wheelhouse. Been lusting for a bigger plane, maybe this could be the one.
