I admit I have a serious addiction to building planes! I like building as much as I like flying. I have better control these days and I stopped stockpiling kits. I buy a kit and sell off one that has been flown in a long while

three more flights today on the slipstream yak55m.... I swapped out the stock LG for a used/repaired CF GraphTech set... this worked great today.

I'm liking the Yak... with the DLE30 the power to weight ratio is spot on with unlimited vertical and power for 3D manuavers.

I'm so glad she is working out for you.
It sure would be nice if you had a video.

yea yea... I need to post some evidence to back up my flight reports

I'll get a camera prepped and added to my flight bag... I don't like flying alone so there's usually someone on the flight line spotting for me... they can earn their place by catching some video!

I did have one OHOH moment Sunday... on the 2nd flight I was trying to transition the airframe from a flat spin to a rolling harrier.. I got lazy with the throttle and there wasn't enough air over the wings, she rotated hard and went nose down fast. And it didn't help that she was a bit further out from the flight line then I normally fly. Fortunately I was high enough to get her out of the stall....

no damage... I was up high enough to gain control and get her back to flying straight. But I rated the pucker factor a 10

I've been flying my 3DHS 71" Slick and I think this tends to make me lazy. The Slick is soooo forgiving even in a complete stall.

Here's a pic of the color modification I made for the underside of the Yak's wings.The stock silver/white color scheme just doesn't work for me. I typically like broad dark stripes or checkerboard on the underside. I added black stripes inside the silver stripes... I get much better orientation this way.
