A friend of mine has the 50cc yak. He loves the plane. The landing gear plate needs some beefing up but other than that is a good plane for the money.

I have a 25% Extra 260 from Peak. Nice plane except for the covering. The covering is a no-name generic and started peeling almost immediately. I almost bought a 30% Edge from them. I passed and got a 3dHobbyshop plane. The Peakmodels plane was similiar to a Hanger 9 ARF. The 3dHobbyshop plane is in a completely different league. It oozes quality.

I`ve got the 25% Yak and two of the 25% SU26ms. Great planes. Standard ARF shortcomings, landing gear plate, soft gear, etc.. Awesome planes for the money.

I have a 50cc Yak 55sp from peakmodels and it's a blast to fly. It's not close to the quality of 3DHS or EF but it arrived at my door for $499. Covering completely sucks but the rest of the plane has held up nicely to some pretty aggressive flying.

some of the younger kids at our field have the 26cc version yak 54 and i tell you what... it really flies nice! i was surprised to see how nice it was. the covering does leave a bit to be desired as it comes loose relatively easy and the plane needs quite a bit of mixing to be "true". but for the $$ it is a pretty nice little rig.

Any updates to this as some time have passed. Maybe more buyers now.

I'm looking for my first gasser and 30% is about the size I want to stick with.

The Combo (yak or Extra) with DLE-55 at $779 shipped is reallllllly attractive and ive almost pulled the plug a few times.

What do you guys think, has quality improved?
