Remarkably durable!
Amazing aerobatic adventures can be as close as a your back yard with
the Yak 55 3D Electric ARF! It's flight-ready in no time, and a
wingspan of less than 3 feet makes it easy to transport. The
FlightFlex advantage is a real confidence-builder for aspiring
hotdoggers, and the quiet, yet powerful electric motor allows the Yak
55 to be flown anywhere where there are noise restrictions.

* Wingspan: 34.5 in (875mm)
* Wing Area: 352 sq in (22.7dmē)
* Weight: 14-16 oz (397-454g)
* Wing Loading: 5.7-6.5 oz/sq ft (17-20g/dmē)
* Length: 38 in (965mm)
* Includes: 370 ball bearing motor, 5:1 gear drive, prop, prop saver
* Requires: 4-channel radio w/4 micro servos, 6" and 8" servo
extensions, 25A ESC, Y-harness, 3-cell 1500mAh Lithium Polymer battery

The entire airframe is made of built-up EPP (Expanded Polypropylene)
that's extremely lightweight and durable. Carbon fiber tubes are used
to strengthen the wing. The receiver, ESC and battery pack are easily
accessed under the zippered canopy inside the fuselage.

A low parts count and pre-applied trim scheme cut final assembly time
to just 2-3 hours. Low-temperature hot-melt glue or silicone-type
adhesives are ideal. Large control surfaces allow for incredible
aerobatics in small spaces, as well as extreme 3D maneuvers such as
harriers, blenders, inverted flat spins, torque rolls and more. Plus,
it flies easily in winds of 10-12 mph.

The wing is made of built-up EPP foam that's extremely sturdy and
bounces back easily from a mishap. Carbon fiber tubes are used to
strengthen the wing.

Thanks to extremely durable FlightFlex construction, modelers can fly
with confidence * knowing that the Yak 55 will bounce back from
virtually any crash to fly again!

Ready for easy installation, the preassembled Speed Force* 370 dual
ball bearing brushed motor and 5:1 gear drive provide plentiful power.
