Jessie (The Mouth) did back to back flights on our 32" 1.3# EPP Yak55 kit versus our 6mm Depron kit (available here) at our indoor flying this past friday. Here is a minimally edited version of it.

John Glezellis stopped into our friday indoor flying session last week and Scott Anderson asked him if he would check out the setup of his RA Cores Flat Foamie Series 32" Yak55.

Of course, John won Freestyle at the 2007 Electric Tournament of Champions so it's no surprise. Check out the other video I posted in my indoor playlist of the show he put on with his personal plane with a reversible pitch prop the same day. Planes aren't supposed to do that.
