Does the Crack Yak use the same motor and ESC as the Edge 540?

I did wonder how you came up with the name too. Over here it's a common saying, good crack (good fun), bad crack (just not right), what's the crack? (or fit's the crack? depending on where your from (what's happening?)),getting the crack (general banter) and what's the crack with....? (how are we going to....?).

So with that I have a question for you, brace yourself..... Fit's the crack wi gettin the crack to ay some crack wi in the uk min? a can understand ya gettin the first crack o the whip in the states but it'll be bad crack if we can't gettem. I'll ave to phone Mark an get the crack wi him, see what his crack has been over the holidays an see what the crack is with getting the crack.

Ahhhhhhh I'm cracking up, crack crack crack yak yak yak
All this yakin has me crackin up. I need to learn to speak Aussie

Are we going to be able to get our hands on it in the UK?

Hi Mike, the last time I spoke to Brad about the Yak for the UK I was informed that Europe would receive the model after the home market had received theirs. This may have changed and I have contacted Brad to confirm. I'm sure he will clarify.

I suspect that in his retailers desire to establish a lead in the RCF market in the UK this product release may have been a touch premature. Brad and his team have kept this model under wraps as much as possible and will be disappointed that a product shot has been released by a non USA retailer and not the company that actually instigated the design.

Mark.

I have removed it, apologies. The problem is I think that as soon as a heads-up is given here, interested customers will naturally look for more information - maybe too much information in the original post?

This is correct. They will be available in the US first.

Thanks Mike.

I think its only fair that Brad and the Twisted team get the glory with their amazing efforts. I have been careful to release only the photos that Twisted had released as I know the effort that has gone into this design.

Thank you Brad for the confirmation that the UK and Europe will receive the Yak after the USA.

Mark.

Guess I missed the picture. This thread is as aggravating as the Horizon AX3X videos were.

Come on Azarr! You know you love it!

Seriously though, I missed whatever happened. I guess there is a production pic out there in cyberspace somewhere.

I can sum it up easily...

Brad is "twisted" and wants all of our hobby money!

First he gets you hooked on his gateway planes and now he wants you on a "Crack" - all part of his twisted plan to dominate the RC world.
