I will put wings on tomorrow, and take pic. What about China copying aeroworks? Made in China? I will continue tracing the Yak in South Africa tomorrow, got two cellphone numbers of importers.

Thanks for the pictures.

Look at the fuse top behind the canopy.
Totally different bracing and the engine box is different.
Color can change, but that's not your color scheme either.
One more thing, Seef's landing gear is put on right, not like the one in the China ad ( they're backwards )

Figured it out guys.
This is a Richmodel 100cc Yak 54.
In the U.S. Eastrc.com used to sell them.
I actually had the 50cc version.
All picture that I had of the construction are gone ( computer crashed ).
What pictures I do have of the 50cc, you can see carried over into the 100cc yak.
Rickmodel didn't use foam for the fuse top and you can see these are made from balsa stringers and sheet.
look at the elevator servo bay and rudder linkage And his tail wheel leaf says Richmodel.

50cc
