5 foot Yak-54 Made of 1/2" PinkPanther foam from Home Depot

The original Upd8 was messed up, so here is a new one.


I got some parts from my Dad for x-mas, so I am going to build the original Yak-54 that I was going to make, except with more accurate plans. (this time, I found a 30 inch Yak-54 plan *Gene Bond on RCgroups* and since 60 inches is 5 feet, I blew the plans up to 200% and I got a 5 foot plane. Originally, I did: measure, calculate, measure, calculate, scale.)

So anyways, here is the electronics I have:

Motor: http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/the...lectric/Detail


ESC: http://www.hobbypartz.com/07e05-proton-40a.html


Servos: http://www.hobbypartz.com/servo-mg90s.html


Battery: http://www.hobbypartz.com/77p-sl2200-3s1p-40c-3333.html and http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/the...-30C-EZ/Detail


Receiver: http://www.rcplanet.com/ProductDetai...0&click=106800



Update 1 (video)


5 foot Yak-54 R/C Plane Build Part 1 (Update 1.01) (1 min 59 sec)

Yeah, i used a different camera than I usually do. This time, it's MY camera..... XD

It is going to be big, isn't it... I will try to keep up on the progress of the plane. We just tested the motor with 2 props:

10x7 APC Slow fly was tested with a 2200mah 11.1v 3s Li-Po battery at 11.5v (3.8 per cell) read 34.9A max. 356watts, 10.2v under load.

11x5.5E TP Slow fly was tested with a 2200mah 11.1v 3s Li-Po battery at 11.5v(3.8 per cell) read 28.0A max. 287watts, 10.3v under load.



And so, in theory, the 11x5.5E is MORE efficient... You believe it? I am going to use the 11x5.5E because, supposedly, it is the "...excellent match for this motor" So I am going to go with that. This should be an interesting project, better go get some popcorn.
