So the 3154 probably weighs a little less since it doesn't have metal gears...

I had a blast last night flying in Rock Hill SC. The York County Flyers hosted an indoor meet. This was my first time flying indoors. It was so much fun flying with all my new and old friends flying the Crack Yaks. There were Bipes, Lites and Regular Cracks Yaks! You don't know what your missing without one! I know what Santa can bring! Hey Chris J you need to come some time.

It was nice flying with you last night Benton!!

Last night as the first time I've flown my CYLite indoors, and it really comes alive inside. I can't wait to get some more time on mine inside.

The 54 and the 56 are two different animals. The 54 is a digital version of 3114. the 56 is verry simular to the HS 5065 in size and spec.

I used a 56 on the crack pitts wings and 54's for the tail. Super smooth and powerfull.
On a mono you would only need 54's all the way arround.

Just my two cents.

Also the cases are different. the 56 has a thicker plastic case. I think the design in the case is to handle more torque. the mounting tabs are thicker and have different mounting holes.

Smooth, Dave.
I pre-guessed your colours correct, Royal purple and Kings yellow. Neat.

Where do you fly in Phuket? I get up there every so often and drop in on the Chalong group near the Supa Temple and have brought home about 10 "Thai Foamies" the IFO EPP 3D kits for mates for outdoors from the shop in Thalang.

Guys at my field love the tougher Foamies but are starting to eye off my Crack Yak as I am starting to get my head around it now.

Hey Benton, great gym flying, you've certainly got your orientation and thumbs around the space.

First flight with motor

Had issues with the motor on the stock power setup, Brad was pretty good even though I was getting frustrated and wanted to send it back.

Removed bullet connectors....ended up being a bad connection.
No more cogging and I finally got to fly the Orange without it falling out of the sky.

Got it on video. Turned out ok. If you can handle the crappy cell pixelation.
Was being easy on the motor at first since I thought it was going to cog.

Crack Yak Lite...Fresh built. (6 min 0 sec)

Yes, correct on the Royal colours. Impressed with your local Thai knowledge. We live about 5 minutes from Thalang. I generally fly at a local farm area near our house, or, at Nai Yang beach. Enjoy your Crack Yak.....Cheers and thanks....D
