Here. I just don't remember which version it is after. Version 2, I believe. Short fuse, that's all.

Tomas,
It came out nice, bro. What's the wing span on that one?

I think it's about 50cm (20"), but I am not sure.
I can measure it to night. I will try to video tape to maiden (might be short) and post it here.

Depron is great, cheap fun ;=) jepp.

Cheers.

Very nice, bro. You really need to brace those wings. I can see it flexing.

Man, all that ice around reminds me we will be seeing that here very soon.

Nice vid, bro.

And YES! it is finished. My slightly smaller -due to wrong scaling 80 cm span- Yak is ready to fly. It came out 128 gr, not too bad for my first 3D indoor plane I guess.
We have (when was the last day we didn't?) strong winds now so I only hovered the plane in the living room. It does hover at 3/4 throttle, so there must be enough power to try my hands on this type of plane.

Thanks for the plans, I will report on the first real flights (if any)

Finally I got to maiden my too small Yak today. It only had my homebrew CD rom motor and I didn't find the time to fit the shrouds, but it did fly excellent. I don't have anything to compare it with, but as I see it this thing flies beautiful. It can do anything I can come up with, and I guess a lot more.

Thanks for the plans and the help in here. I'll try a Blingbling next and put better magnets in my motor.

Have a look in this forum for a thread named "Plan BlingblingV3 by Didier". There's also a picture of the plane and a link to the thread provided in posts #1 and #2 of the "F3P plans" sticky.

You can try to download it again today. There have been some problems with the Internet in my region yesterday.

The plane flyes actually good, but this weekend I am trying it with a smaller battery, Esc and receiver. Should save about 30gr there. I am using 5gr servos and everything works okey.

Try to download it again.

Cheers

Tomas

Thomas,

Thanks, I'm getting the clip now.

Cool! This might be the way for me because I'm flying outside as well. The higher wingloading should be an advantage. A bit less deflection and I think I'll have a very nice fun plane. I guess I could get near to 110 grams or so (2S). The large Yak already does vertical with authority so the small one will be even better. Need a bit more prop speed though, so I'll have to try.

Thanks for sharing the maiden.
