The Yak55 has arrived!!!

I finally received my Yak55 kit.

NICE! Build quality is rather good for a kit in this price range ($62.99 @ HK). All parts are accounted for, only a minor nick in the front of the cowling, which is easily repairable with some graphite epoxy and some black touchup paint.

The digital servos I ordered are smaller than the slots for the wing and tail servos, so I'll have to improvise with some thin ply to mount them. Pix below.

Specs for the servos:

Model: HD-1810MG
Voltage: 4.5v~6v
Speed: .13sec
Torque: 3.9kg/cm
Bearings: 1BB
Gears: Metal
Weight: 15.8g
Size: 22.8x12x29.4mm

These have a LOT of torque, and have been hailed as some of the better digital servos in the micro/mini size ranges (10g to 20g). They run $12.50/ea. at HobbyKing. I am looking forward to trying these - they have ~50% higher torque rating than my 82MG Hitecs I put in my Pitts 12 15e earlier this year. Stay tuned!

I am looking forward to building this kit! It is very nicely covered, and everything fits well. The canopy is integrated into the battery cover - an excellent design for battery/electronics access.

More to come!
