Nope, haven't flown the crack yak.

I originally was flying the Pitts with an A10-9L on 2s 400, and it was just ridiculously floaty.

Now I've got a Motrolfly DM2205 1800kv on it with 2s 800 and it is sooo much better IMO. GREAT power, and the added weight gives it momentum to fly more aggressively while still being super slow and floaty in harrier. Despite the added weight, it feels very crisp and rigid. Easily gets 7 minute flights as well.

It has zero coupling... the only sort of weird thing about it is the rudder authority. It will knife edge with just the tiniest rudder input, and it's easy to give too much. Now that I am used to it I am having a blast though... tightest KE loops ever. So far everyone I've let fly it says they want one.

That file is an AV (Aircraft Variant). This means you need to download the EA (Entire Aircraft) that it is based on, and import it first. It is linked as "Requires:" on the page I gave above.
Thanks Again, I will get it tonight when I get home

I had the same experience with the rudder on the crack yak. I have mine set at 50% travel.. I couldn't even get into a ke spin before I dialed it down! I use the stock setup and like the 3s power and added weight much better than 2s especially outdoors with any wind!

I love my Slick, but it's just different than my other planes... super stable in upright harrier and hover, but I find when I am doing other things it isn't as forgiving as the rest of my fleet.

I have occasional thoughts of stripping the gear for a Byper, and of course keeping the 51 as backup. Can't hardly find time for all the planes I have now, and I can't see spending money on another power system in that size at the moment.
I haven't flown the 51" slick so I can't compare the vyper bype to it. Sorry.

Haha, me too! I need to send my Motrolfly in for bearings, but that causes it to make more buzz now in KE Spins, so I can't seem to get the motivation to pull it yet.

Sounds like you need to get some more flying in, only 257 flights in three years. i put that on my planes in a month. In the summer any ways, I will not be able to fly another balsa until march more than likely due to weather.
