Will they ever come out with this plane??

hey guys, over the past few years companies like extreme flight and 3d hobby shop have produced some great 3d planes in the 45 to 60" range. but what i would like to see is one of them produce an yak 55 M version. over the past few years i have come to really like the yak 55m. i know electifly has an yak 55m i a 50" size but from what i understand it isn't a great 3ding plane. extreme flight and 3d hobby shop are known for putting out great, light weight electric planes that 3d great. does anyone know if maybe one of them is coming out with a yak55m or of a copmany out there putting out a yak 55m that will 3des great? i'm guessing there is probaly a company out there putting out an yak 55m in the 45 to 60" range but one thats here in the states or is easy to get in the states.
thanks so much for any help
Mikey

thats AWESOME!!!!!!!! i had heard something about AJ flying and yak 55m fromt hem but couldn't really find out for sure. any ideas about a release date?? i was at SEFF a few years ago when he had the first Slicks and fell in love with them but never really got one, but i'm looking to get an electric of this size going. and knowing that he helped design it makes my mouth water even more cause after talking to him at SEFF that year i learned how much effort he puts into making a design fly right!!!
thanks for the reply and the video, now you got me wating even more!!!

I dont think there is a release date for it yet last think from ben was

'the development work is done but they have not been built yet' and he mentioned it should be soon back in may

i took the video last year at octoberfest in texas

you should get yourself a slick or two. I still have a 59 slick. just sold my 70 slick and also sold a 51 as well.

Get yourself a 3DHS 42" Slick while you wait for this Yak to be released. You won't regret it. I love mine and it flies more like my 47" planes. Most everyone is currently out, but a new shipment should be available in a month or two.

at first i thought the yak 55m was not an good looking air frame, but over the past few years i have come to love it. when i forst saw the yak 55m i thought it wouldnt knife edge good but it knife edges great!!!! it really is a good airframe!!!

Nope! I never thought that.



It reminded me of the movie Airplane, where it was a jet airliner, but there was always the drone of propeller engines as the sound track.
