When you say not as floaty do you mean in a harrier attitude? High alpha? The wing on the Yak is almost like a Vyper in the fact that it is swept back and does not have that groovy harrierness to it that a straight wing edge does. Because of the wing design it snaps VERY well, so I really like it much better for precision. The way AJ set the tail up however it does tumbles VERY well. So in retrospect to the edge this is more of a precision tumble plane than a harrier/lowhuck tumble plane. I think the Yak is most similar to the Velox/VR1's really except that this has a tad bit better precision and the cool round cowl.

FYI all of AJ planes love to fly just a hare ahead of neutral for groovy precision and badass tumbles. No bueno neutral.

Ben and Noll let me fly their 55 yak this weekend. Harrier was so good i put it on deck within a couple of minutes of flying it. Tumbles you are dead on tho bro it will straight up tumble very violently heheheh.cool stuff!
KE I found only needed like a touch of rudder to hold a straight line lol..wow. I didn't try a KE loop but I bet those are easy with this plane.

Absolutely! That's why they make Joe fly a Blue One, cause it needs help.

This if from the first flight...

I'm trying to decide if i should get this or the 42 slick. It's really more of a question of which one to get first since they both use the same gear when i crash one i'll replace it with the other. I have a buck huck and a 47 shp at the moment so it's not going to be my first 3d plane

I run 3s2200's and 600watts of 130g motor in my 46"yak....with hitec 65's.....all of that is 48" class weight and power.....if you used that in a 42 slick, it would be a heavy one.

Watts is where its at!

Agreed. You can run the 103 gram motor in the 46" but I had 1800mah packs in the 42" airplane I had. 2200 would be a big pack for the little 42" slick or edge.

Are most guys running 3S 2200 in this one instead of 4S 2200?
