Hyperion Yak 55-inspired Formosa

I just replaced the Formosa I wrecked in the fall. I came close to ordering a Yak 55 but went the cheap route instead. Looks good don't ya think? If I wasn't so lazy it would be flying already.

Nice Mex! You should have no problems with visibility.

Thanks Doc. Yellow is always good for that.

I finally finished the Formosa. At the end I decided to salvage some LG and a tail skid from another model that has been mothballed. They are removable. If the wind ever lets up I can maiden it.

Mex, is the LG from the KM? What happened to that one? I'm off for Easter break, so let me know when you want to maiden it, and I'll bring the camera. I also need you to shoot a vid of my Spit...

My home PC and internet connection has been messed up so I don't know how accessible I am this weekend. Weather looks bad as well.

I sold the KM to help fund the Biplane. The LG are from my old TuffE.

Power is from an E Flite 400 in a cobri GB. GWS 10x6 HD to start. Not sure of the ratio.

I also have a new foamy on the way to replace the Panic. It's done. And Jon has a new bird to maiden as well. Brio 10

Interesting maiden this morning. It took a load of trim to get it flying level. I had elevator expo set to 0 by mistake. To call it pitchy would be an understatement. Power was weak so I swapped the 10x6 for an 11x7. Rudder throw and authority were ridiculous so I decrease rudder rate. In KE coupling was out of control. Second landing in the grass tore the LG out. All in all it was quite entertaining.
