Yak 130 90mm Refurbish

I picked up a good deal on an older version of the 90mm Freewing (i.e. Ready2Fly) Yak 130 and have begun the job of refurbishing it. It's not in bad condition but, it was missing parts that were easily replaced via Motion RC spare parts. It appears to have suffered a bad landing at some point in it's career and was put away with incomplete repairs. The front landing gear strut retaining pin was bent so, I un-bent it, both horizontal stabs were missing along with the right main gear and retract unit. Additionally, most of the gear doors were MIA. There are a couple of blemishes that need some TLC but, the needed parts are on order or on-hand and it's coming together quicker than I expected. However, with the holiday season fast approaching, it probably won't be ready to fly until early next year. It's a good winter project.
