Yak-54 w/DLE-30

Peak Model Yak-54 (26%)

Wing span: 73 Length: 67

I purchased this setup as a whole package from a guy who had damaged a wing and never put all the pieces back together afterwards. I bought it from him and started flying it in late 2010, and the airframe/motor/etc probably only have 10 flights on them total.
Airframe was bought from Peak Model (http://www.peakmodel.com/index.php?m...roducts_id=823) and I believe its the V3 version (no carbon gear).

The DLE-30 motor was brand new in the package and is still being broke-in on Pennzoil outdoor in a 32:1 mix, all in all the motor probably only has of a gallon through it as it sips the gas yet provides more than enough power for this plane (shell climb vertical for as long as you can stand it). I changed the motor to the rear-carb version via the kit shortly after I got it. Old side carb parts will be included in sale. Motor mount wall was beefed up with carbon fiber cloth and epoxy and is extremely strong.

For the tail wheel I added a aftermarket carbon fiber mount. Wing bag in pics included as well. I forget what brand of spinner I put on it but it is aluminum and has worked great. Pitts exhaust was purchased from TBM and has a tap for smoke.

Has 4 HS-645MG servos (ale, ale, ele, ele), 1 HD-9150MG servo (rud) and a HS-81 on the throttle.
The ignition battery is a 1500 mAh 4.8V Ni-MH and the servos are powered off a 200 mAh 6.0V Ni-MH.

In addition to the colplete airframe I have spare parts for it as well. A set of wings with the carbon tube (one needs recovered in a spot or two, see pics), a set of elevators, rudder, landing gear struts and a cowl that has been minimally cut on the bottom. Fuselage is the only thing I dont have to make a whole nether airplane.

All said and done this is a $1,200 airplane with spare parts that Id like to get $675 out of. Im only selling this one just like everyone else, to move up to my next project. Also have a AR7000 RX that Ill throw in for an additional $40.

Im willing to split the cost of shipping via Greyhound if you need it. Paypal only please, don't worry about adding the 3%, I'll eat it.

Only considering a partial / full trade for a DA-50R motor or a 50cc biplane (pitts python type).

Feel free to contact me with any questions.
