I can't stop flying this Plane!
This is going to be an excellent 3D Trainer for me and it's a blast just doing these Slow, Graceful, Maneuvers with this Plane.
It's definitely worth the time to build.

I'm very impressed with this Kit 3D Plane.
It has a lot of power, is graceful in the air, and a lot of fun to fly.
I highly recommend this Yak54 Aerobat EPP 800mm Wingspan 3D Plane.

***I incorrectly stated in the video that the Linkage Setup I have in place offers the most movement but not the best Mechanical Advantage. That is incorrect, the setup I'm using does not offer the most movement or least Mechanical Advantage, it is a compromise between the two.

I have been wanting to Review a 3D Plane for quite some time.
In the right hands, they are very Aerobatic but also Graceful in the air.
I've never flown a 3D Plane before so they're won't be much in the way of Grace but definitely some Aerobatics ;-)
This Yak54 is an 800mm Wingspan Kit, no Electronics are included.
Mine had everything it should, except for the Motor Mount, which I suspect fell out of the Box.
Yep! This time UPS strikes again!
When I received the box the Carbon Spar and Control Rods were hanging out of a damaged corner of the box so I suspect that is how I'm missing the Motor Mount.
The Build was pretty straight forward.
I didn't like the stock assembly of the Landing Gear so I performed a MOD on that ;-)
I wanted my Aileron Servo and Control Assembly on the Bottom of the Wing instead of the Top so I perfomed a MOD for that.
I also performed a MOD on the Cutouts for the Motor Mount as I wanted more surface area for gluing the Motor Mount.
Everything else assembled as it should.
The Kit included the Carbon Wing Spar, Control Horns, Control Rods, Control Rod Linkage Stops, Control Rod Supports, Velcro, and the Control Surfaces are already Beveled...Continue Reading

I've been so busy with projects, testing, and reviews I've not had a chance to fly this Micro Parkjet much over the past month.
That's a shame because this Micro Parkjet is an absolute joy to fly ;-)

I wanted to adjust the Linkage on the Ailerons to soften them up a bit as they were a bit too abrupt for me.
I also adjusted the Linkage on the Rudder to have a bit more responsive Rudder.
Time to see if this was an improvement in Expert / Manual Mode ;-)

Having "Murphy" with me every step of the way made for a very difficult Review.
It seemed as though, anything that could go wrong, went wrong ;-)
I work through all of the issues and now have a fantastic flying P51 Warbird!

The Cost of the Motor, ESC, Servo Extension Cable, Props, and Landing Gear Repair was approx. $23.00 US

I wanted to demonstrate how this Plane handles some significant wind.
I had a chance to take it out in some very spradic wind of 2mph-9mph.
It was a log of fun and I had enough wind to actually hover this plane ;-)

Glue & Fly™ Series - Introducing the F-22 Nano V1 Beta Build!

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7avCEh21QDI

The Alpha Build of this Parkjet was an 8in (203mm) wingspan.
It flew great above 60% throttle but it didn't have the slow flight capability I was looking for.
I didn't release the Plans because I just can't release Plans when the Aircraft doesn't check all the boxes.
Good slow flight capability was one of those boxes it didn't check.
I knew if I scaled this Parkjet to a 10in (254mm) wingspan it would check all the boxes.
I didn't do that as the material I was using, foam plates, required gluing small foam panels together to make larger foam panels to build this plane and that was going to be too cumbersome for most builders.
I had to put this project on hold for a long time.
After several attempts to located the proper material and being unsuccessful in that quest, I decide to scale the Plans to a 10in (254mm) wingspan and try to build it out of 5mm thick Adams Ready Board.
The build is complete and it's ready for it's Glide Test and then Maiden Flight.
I'm very apprehensive regarding the thickness of this foam, and how well this Parkjet will fly.
If the Glide Test looks good I will perform the Maiden Flight to see what I have.

Fingers Crossed!

I wanted to adjust the Linkage on the Ailerons to soften them up a bit as they were a bit too abrupt for me.
I also adjusted the Linkage on the Rudder to have a bit more responsive Rudder.
Time to see if this was an improvement in Expert / Manual Mode ;-)
