You guys are going to make me go out and spend more money sooner than I had planned aren't you?

Re: Bill Hempel 100cc Yak-55M?????

I love the looks of this plane (Y-55M). I HATE the looks of the Yak-55SP! It just doesnt look right. Kudos to bill for developing a plane I can finally get into (figuratively). I love the giants but transport and storage limitations prevent those. I'll be looking for another 100cc plane when I get tired of putting my Ultimate together at the field and this one certainly looks to be in the running.

Looks like you have a motor just say the word and YES! I can have it in my carry on bag...The Rappy NO problem except for the fact you fly that mode 4 shiz.. That could be a problem for me on test flight.. I'm sure we will get you flying NO problem..

Re: Bill Hempel 100cc Yak-55M?????

I'm interested in your flight reports.

Are you going to do a "normal" build or one of your super lightweight builds?

Cans, pipes, or muffs?

You plan on it being a 3d machine or an IMAC machine?

Just the other day I was telling somebody at the field I wish someone would make a 100cc wood version of this plane.

Go spend some money!!

Building this one pretty stock, as in I don't plan to take any wood out and will probably use hardwood dowels if standoffs are needed(I usually use balsa). This is, after all, a prototype, so we need an honest weight for it. However, I will be doing only one rudder servo, A123 1100's, and no power systems or anything like that(except a Smart-fly ignition kill), and a fiji water bottle fuel tank.
Gonna be stock muffs, although the fuse is cannister-ready pipes would be pretty easy, too.
This will be set up for probably both 3D and precision, as I think it will excel at both.
Gotta go to DA tomorrow, anyway, so I may leave with a big white box
