That's why the most-advanced alien spacecraft are built entirely of G10 board.

Well I know one ded-gum thing!!!

I got a Yak Lite, and boy howdy....

After my first few flts on that thing, I brought it home, set it down, lit some candles, and started burning incense and chanting...it is in fact that good... and no I'm not a ded-blame TH employee!!! (I wish!!!) Seriously...a buddy asked me if I liked it...and my reply was: it's a religious experience to fly one...no joke

And NOW....a MINI Yak... Arrrghhhh! I might have to be committed!!!!!

Dang you, TH, give my wallet a break already!!

It's not always good info though... you were telling me about a new Yak prototype from overseas and it didn't fly very well at all... too fuzzy... you could hang your hat on them servo horns though...

So can the mini be flown with a 12 amp ESC and a the 1450kv TH motor from the 32" crack or do you have to get the motor/ESC mini combo only?

It's hard to tell how small it really is.

It can but you'd be opening a big can of worms by going that route. The specs says it all. It's a small plane, so keeping the weight down is the trick. The mini with power combo has it all and for a good price.
Specs:

Wing span 24 / Length 25
AUW 80 - 95g (with Landing Gear)
2000-2200kV out-runner motor (9g 12g)
4 - 6 amp ESC
2s 180 250mAh battery
4 ch radio
2x 3.5g servos
1x 4.0g servo
6x3 to 7x3.5 prop

It would fly with that combo but would be too heavy. I think a big part of what makes this ane fun is the time that we put into sourcing out the components and making the airframe and components work together. I want everybody to experience the joy of this plane with all the parts that were designed for it.

Mini Yak at the Race Track...
.
Took my Mini to the local R/C OnRoad Race track last night for some indoor flying, ceiling could have been a little higher (only 12ft), but in that space (100ft x 50ft x 12ft ceiling) the mini was able to do pretty much anything you wanted (the two pillars in the middle made it interesting), rolling circles, KE, Hovers (of course, you can do hover in a shower stall... lol), upright and inverted Harriers, etc, etc... it was a ton of fun. I am hoping to get up North of Denver this coming week end for an indoor event, for any locals that might be interested...

Plane on pre-order, UMX to JST adapters on order (180's from the beast), 260's and 300's on order from across the pond. Now the waiting begins.... Good thing I have a Crack Yak and Pitts to keep me occupied!

Nice one cdee.

I figured you would be the first Stark. Post some pics man! And video of course.

The waiting is always the sad part. Got the new mcpx to keep me busy and of course the rest of my TH hanger. Really going to need the dx8 if I keep them all.
