I've flown this jet seven times on an Admiral 6S 60C 4000 mAh battery and it has very nice performance. Though I'm not a Yak-130 fan, this is a great flying, fun EDF model for a reasonable price. The red and white scheme really helps with orientation and looks great.

•6 Blade factory balanced EDF with 2849-2200kV outrunner motor (6S PNP only)
•60 Amp Hobbywing ESC with EC5 connector and 5A BEC
•Removable wings and carbon spar
•High visibility “Red 02” scale trainer scheme
•Electronic retractable landing gear with 3mm steel wire struts and metal trunnions
•Nylon hinges on aileron and elevator
•Plastic-sheathed nose cone and wing tip missile rails for added durability
•All electronics come pre-installed for your convenience (6S PNP only)
•Some gluing and assembly required

Requires:
•Minimum 6 Channel Radio
•6 Channel Receiver
•6 Cell 22.2V 3000 - 4000 mAh LiPo Battery
