Man, it flies, I love this Yak, well had a lot of trouble with it, the CG was tail heavy, so I move the engine forward, then the aileron wasn't working, found a servo extension plug in wrong, but the DA 150cc engine ran sweet.

Well today I went to my local hobby shop and pickup my fuel tank, and while I was gone, I miss the postman on my other parts, now I got to wait until monday for them parts, I pull this Big ass Yak outside, to fit all the parts, after about an hour of work on the engine cowl, it fit nice, had to drill new holes for the wing plate, now the wings fit nicely, it seem like the closer I get the more I need to do, I order two Jr matchbox tonight, I think that's going to fix my issue with the servo in the wing for centering and end points, well here are some pics.
