it does help the skills a lot. I've learned so much over the last year with mine. 3D flying is a lot different than what I had been doing the previous 39 years. Guess you can teach an old dog a new trick or two

I just flew two more packs before dark. I flew half a pack inverted harrier. This plane does it really well. I love the flat rudder turns. I am already getting better at hovering it. I am studying at the college right now... I'll be here late. I might fly a pack or two under the parking lot lights when I leave

I put about 6 meters of lights on a 32" EPP Yak. One each of white and blue for over the fuselage/rudder and two meters each of red and green for the wings/stabs

NightYak.m4v (2 min 43 sec)

If you want to save weight you can just solder the wires into the connector to the battery. But, you will not be able to control the lights without adding an on off switch.

Rhino Lipo's are good as well as their Zippy line.

Currently our favorite is Nano-tech 2 cell 460

I have them hooked up to one of their radio controlled switches plugged into my gear channel and that works fine. If you get the 0.1" offset headers from an electronics supplier that will plug into the balance ports or HK does sell the pigtails for charging. I just run them off the balance port of the battery I'm flying with. I am using 1000mah batteries to handle both power and lights. They draw 400mah per meter so i am drawing something like 2.5 amps for lights alone

I have always really liked the Yak design but I would like to build a smaller version. Something that I can fly indoors in confined areas say like an auto parts store (even though I would never do that type of thing at work). My full size Yak is flyable in the store but if it noses into a shelf it tends to take a lot of stuff with it. Can someone direct me towards plans for a smaller yak or something small that I could easily slow flow in a small area? Thanks is advance!
