Default 102" qq yak

just about ready for the maiden. This weekend if it is nice.
da-100 mtw cans
8611a all the way
fromeco batts and regs
decked out with aerographix
The build was great. only mod i had to do was the canopy was just a little big so io had to sand her down. other than that everything was perfect.
cant wait to get it in the air. enjoy. thanks, jed

Default Re: 102" qq yak

And the final weight was?
Mine is ultra-trimmed down with the BME, stock muffs, single rudder servo, dual 2400's on the rx, single 2400 on the ign, smart-fly cutoff, no choke servo, no spinner, no pilot, no pwerboxes or matchboxes or other dead weight, and mine came in at 25 pounds. So my guess is yours is pushing or over 28 pounds (over 28 if you are using dual 4800's and any extracuricular items)?
By the way, what's up with that tailwheel? It's backwards, you know...

havent weighed it yet. i am running dual batts into single reciever. tailwheel hasnt been connected to rudder yet. its a tad tail heavy from the recomended cg so i think im gonna move the engine foward a little. i will let you know the weight when i check it. thanks, jed

It is nearly impossible for you to be Tailheavy with a DA! You should be able to move the battery around to achieve the proper CG. Heck, that's what I had to do with this 3.8 pound BME up front!

By the way, your prop should be about an inch forward of the very front of the cowl, though, for maximum prop efficiency. So if you aren't there right now, then moving the engine forward would be the first step.
