Review Part 1 - Yak54 Aerobat 800mm Wingspan 3D Plane - Assembly Part 1

Review Part 1 - Yak54 Aerobat 800mm Wingspan 3D Plane - Assembly Part 1

Yak54 Aerobat 800mm Wingspan Kit

Banggood GCRC

Here is a link to the Video:

I have been wanting to Review a 3D Plane for quite some time.
In the right hands, they are very Aerobatic but also Graceful in the air.
I've never flown a 3D Plane before so they're won't be much in the way of Grace but definitely some Aerobatics ;-)
This Yak54 is an 800mm Wingspan Kit, no Electronics are included.
Mine had everything it should, except for the Motor Mount, which I suspect fell out of the Box.
Yep! This time UPS strikes again!
When I received the box the Carbon Spar and Control Rods were hanging out of a damaged corner of the box so I suspect that is how I'm missing the Motor Mount.
The Build looks to be pretty straight forward.
I don't like the stock assembly of the Landing Gear so I'm going to MOD that ;-)
Everything else looks to assemble as it should.
The Kit included the Carbon Wing Spar, Control Horns, Control Rods, Control Rod Linkage Stops, Control Rod Supports, Velcro, and the Control Surfaces are already Beveled and Hinged.
I didn't see any cuts in the foam for the Control Horns but that's easy enough.

RC Tip #24 - Servo Setup & Centering - Get that Servo perfectly Centered

This Yak54 Aerobat Kit is Courtesy of Banggood.
I want to thank Banggood for sending this Kit for Review.

Stay Tuned...

I checked out the link but I'm not sure what you mean by the Real thing?
Looks like a similar 3D Kit Plane.
It doesn't state it's a Yak54.
It's $75 for the kit with paint.
Mine was $43
I guess all EPP Foam comes from China.
What am I missing?
