Twisted Hobby's 32" Crack Yak or E-Flite UMX AS3Xtra


Which one? Been wanting to get a 3d plane for awhile and don't which one to get. I finally narrowed it down to these two but can't decide. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance, JD

I'd definitely go with the crack yak, it will handle a breeze a lot better, it has more power, and it's crazy durable.The As3xtra isn't a bad model but it has a brushed motor that will wear out fast. It's also not very durable where as the crack yak can take a beating very well.

I was leaning towards the crack yak and now I'm REALLY leaning towards the crack yak lol. I like the look of it too. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the price but I'm sure it'll be worth it. JD

Trust me, well worth the price, you will love it! TwistedHobbys planes are an absolute blast to fly.

asxtra is fun no doubt, but it's single cell umx and fragile. Crack yak will deliver the goods with more power and better fun factor. Go crack don't look back.

What electronics did you guys put in your crack yaks? Is there like a crack yak "owners thread" that I could refer to? Thanks folks, JD

Below is a link to the 32" crack yak build thread and discussion

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1578833

I run theTwistedHobbys Combo's in my TH planes, they are nice because they come with everything minus the rx and battery, everything is already soldered up. I will put a link to the optional combo's below. Hope this helps!

Also take note that the above links are to the Standard series power combo which is for the standard Crack Yak, TwistedHobbys offers a Standard, Lite, and Superlite version. If you wish to get a lite or Superlite I can give you the links to those power combos as well.

Awesome! Make sure to get a tube or two of welder's or foam-tac! Best glue to use in the build.

Does JB Weld work good?

Would it be worth paying the extra $6 to get the "lite" version or should I just get the normal version?

Welder's is a contact adhesive, if JB Weld is similar to that it should work.

Can't go wrong with either one, I like the lite series planes but that's just my opinion.
