32"Yak 54 by GreatPlanes (indoor flyer)

Well this plane is SO LITE it's increadible. All I have left on this one is the pushrods and it will be ready for it's maiden I hope this will be my indoor flyer and no wind outdoor. this will be great to fly around in the infield area, as well as any park. The ending weight should come in at about 6.0oz I plan on running it on 2s 500's with a 12amp ESC. with a 8x4 slow fly prop.

Me too

I had one of these a couple of winters ago. It flys nice at 6 oz. Outside, no wind, it goes so slow it looks like it's flying in water. Inside, I had to keep it turning to stay off the walls in a small gym. I enjoyed it greatly until it got hit by another plane and totaled it.
PS.. I just finished building a Techone Sback 33". It weighs 5oz fly weight. Can't wait to try it in the Mcminnville gym. JJ

Once I crash my Yak, i will be transferring the electronics onto a TechOne plane.
Nitro planes sells them for around 30 bucks, and they have been getting really good reviews.
