Bill Hempel 100cc Yak-55m


Some pictures of my new 100cc Yak-55m. I will be using it strictly for IMAC. If you see me down low with it, please smack me upside the head.

Plane flies extremely well. I'm flying 100% better than with the CHP Extra I had before it (in defense of the Extra, it was many years old and had been crashed and repaired many times before). Only problem with that is now I don't have equipment to blame my crappy flying on

Hey Bill,
It flies great, though I haven't gotten much time on it since the owners of the land my club (ARCS) leases from put up a fence accross the East end of the runway.

I finished 8th out of 15th in my first IMAC Sportsman contest at SVF with only a few practice sessions on it. The plane flew a lot better than I did. I had way too many zeros for doing stupid things like forgetting the role at the top of the loop

I had a lot of positive comments from the other pilots on the plane.
It's a winner for sure!
