Very nice. Great job saving it and getting in the landing like that. I have to ask, what caused the failure of the wing? Shaun

I think it has something to do with the crappy wing tube they provide or a bad batch that made it through. A friend bought the 30cc Yak from them at Aerobeez and after his maiden flight which was not flown hard he noticed the wings loose. He took the canopy off thinking the wing bolt loosened up but they were tight. After taking the wings off he saw the tube cracked and the crack went around about 270 of the tube. He was lucky catching it as one more flight and it was all over. When we looked at the tube closer it did not look like there was any fiber in it like a good carbon fiber tube would have. Aerobeez replaced it promptly and the new tube looked like it should. Seeing this now makes me suggest to all flying these to examine that tube closely.

Hi guys,

This Yak55m are from Magichand-rc, the wood into the wing are not a good quality. Alot of people who had flying with this brand have quality problem and the construction of the wings are not in half strong. They think to much lightness but they don't think of the rigidity who are a important point for this kind of airplane. Thank you also for kind words :- ))

Fly safe,
David Duval
