mini Yak 55

Well, as I said, I've got it built. I still need the electronics. I think I will use the Zippy Flightmax 180mAh 2s, and the Turningy Plush 6A ESC. The plush has much better reviews than the HK brand. Even though I am using some carbon fiber rods to stiffen up the tail, I am going to try to build A.L.A.P. (as light as possible) meaning NO hot glue, only CA glue. I have plenty of time to make the plane, no rush really. So I really won't be doing much with it until I get enough money, then order it. Then wait another month to get it. But anyway, at least I know I will be getting a quality, reliable, and efficient motor from Dualsky.


I am going to try to go for either a camouflage or standard flame and checkered scheme. Like these:


flames and checkered

control horns

So, I need the max throws for practicing 3D. On a plane like this to get the control throws as big as I need, I think I am going to get these TINY little control horns from hobby town, put the pushrod on the innermost hole on the control horn and cut the rest off, and limit throws with the "Travel Adjust" function on the Dx6i to limit the throws to where I need them. (cutting the other holes off saves a bit of weight. As I said, I am going to build A.L.A.P.)

Thanks guys!
