West Michigan Park Flyers EPP Yak-55


West Michigan Park Flyers LLC has been producing the Leadfeather Yak 55 for over a year now. It has been a great success and still proves to be one of our best selling airframes. We have decided to start up our own thread so we can show and discuss our build methods as well as showcase this great airframe.

Lets kick it off with a video form one of our good friends in New York ... Nicely done Eddie !!!

Thanks Greg, we had another great day of flying about 10 to 15 Yaks in the air, we fill up fast as winter is sending everyone inside....

I did see a few of the new colors flying today, they look great...

Eddie.

I'm surprised you're not going to E-Fest, it's a lot closer to you.

Might go as a pilot but not a vendor. There is only so much I can do in a day ...

I've built a bunch of Leadfeather's Yaks and probably 7 or 8 of WM Parkflyer's kits. I've been working on this one for what seems like forever. I had intended to have it done for E-Fest, but unfortunately life sometimes just gets in the way. I wasn't going to post until I had test flown it, but I thought this might force me to find some more time to work on it.

The Yak should be a perfect candidate for Variable Thrust. I expect this one to be overweight since I decided to add two servos so that I can switch the variable thrust on/off. The VT servos will be as close to the CG as possible so that if I end up flying with it on all the time I can just remove the servos and connect direct to the elevator and rudder servos. The five servos also means that I have to use an add on BEC.

I expect to have it flying later this week and will see if I can get some video.

Like the air brake sound effects at the 4:19 mark, reminds me of the old bugs bunny pilot cartoon.

Nice job on the video
