Were all the parts in your kit? Mine was missing the depron sheeting for the bottom foreward section of the fuse. No big deal, I've got pleanty of scraps from other projects. Other than that and the decals not lining up exactly, this thing was an easy build. I don't have a motor yet, what are you planning to use?

Mine were all there...if you are missing anything just email Sales@3DXHobbies.com

As far as the decals go, they are cut to fit. The build is very straight forward and pretty easy IMO. The Yak is similar to the Extra 260 and I have built 3 of those.

I am going to use a Turnigy 2217 16turn 1050kv 23A Outrunner with the matching 25amp ESC. I have this same set-up on the before mentioned Airfoilz Extra 260 matched with an Xoar 11X5 it is going to be a BEAST! The Airfoilz Full Fuse planes fly big and feel more stable than the profiles IMO. I always have one in the car ready to go

(don't mean to sound rude but) That's impossible, those parts are laser cut and tabbed on the main 3mm depron sheet, it's not a separate part that can be missed in packing.

FWIW, I got out the skeletons of the main sheets and found that
1 piece has a fuse side, lwr rear dblr.,2 pcs. hatch,2 pcs.stab support,rear btm. sheeting,and top fnt. dblr.
1 piece has fuse side, 2pcs. wing root dblr., lwr rear dblr., top fnt dblr., and 2 upr rear dblr.
and a small sheet with 3 pcs. fuse top sheeting
I don't see room for a piece big enough to sheet the bottom foreward section of the fuse.

I thought the same thing when I built my Extra...turns out I did not consider the opening where the batt. goes....took me a minute to figure that out.
