i donīt have any hacker experience, but if you like the outrunners, you should go whit a park 400 or equivalent.. and if you prefer the gearbox you can use the park 370 4100Kv or equivalent whit the 6.6:1 included gearbox.
use both with TP 3s 1320(works great)..

pics arenīt very clear but it looks like a normal elevator

Yes, the model uses a "standard" stab with elevator - not a full flying stab. Elevator response is crisp, linear and not twitchy at all. In fact, it doesnt require gobs of throw to get it working well either.

The rudder also works awesome. VERY powerful without being twitchy too. Because of the rudder and side area on this model, knife edge loops are almost too easy - even indoors! Regular or high alpha knife egde is also a breeze with almost no coupling.

For power systems, it accepts a wide variety of options from Park 370 and 400 outrunners to the popular Park 370 inrunner motors (gearbox and prop are already included for use with the Park 370 inrunner motor). The motor mount readily accepts all of the above with NO modifications necessarry to the mount or nose of the model. You can see some of our recommended set ups listed in the 3 links (High Power, High Power Outrunner, Indoor/Light Weight Outrunner) found on the left side of this page:

All hardware is included such as adjustable pull-pull lines, control horns, motor or gearbox mounting screws and more.

The A-frame fuse is already factory built and provides a very stiff and flex-free yet light structure - certainly a welcome change from the more flexible "flat foamies" which allows the model to be flown more precisely and in higher winds than many other models in its class.

For those attended the Toledo show next weekend it, the model will be on display. And for those attending the eTOC or ex Games Friday/Saturday night, the production model will be demoed.

Keep an eye out at your favorite E-flite dealer in April for Yaks to arrive

Will an AXI 2212 fit in the stock motor mount holes?
