Re: 3D_Kid's new build.

I have one of the baby Yaks and it is sweet. It is a blast to fly and very precise for it's size. A word of caution though if you are flying off of a grass field go ahead and get some different wheels for it. My wheels lasted two flights and they were history. By the way Booze and chicks how could that not be happy!

Re: 3D_Kid's new build.

3d kid.... be sure to cut out the vents in the back side of the fuselage, and also put a little baffle in the cowling so that it only lets air go in thru those little cheek cowls on the motor box. If you don't the pressure generated inside the fuselage will blow the canopy off of the plane in flight. Mine flew off on the first flight and cracked when it hit the asphalt runway.

Here is the key to learning to hover nice with an electric.... buy about 3-6 batteries and fly the pants off that thing.

Re: 3D_Kid's new build.

I used some packing tape to baffle part of the cowling off like the manual suggested. I did not know about opening up the vents though, which ones exactly do I open up? If I don't open them the canopy will blow off because the air is trapped inside the plane. Thanks, Ken

Re: 3D_Kid's new build.

I got the Amsoil decals today. I walked buy a Amsoil dealer's booth at some random flea market and decided hey I'm gonna go buy a bottle of the 100:1 for my future DA-100, and that's when I saw the decals as well, and said awesome, I'll take two. I got 2 of them for $2 pretty good deal, because normally it is 2 for $5. Great guy.

Re: 3D_Kid's new build.

Ah, one last thing you might do before you maiden... I used a piece of velcro strap to wrap around the battery so it wouldn't go floppy in the middle of an inverted blender or something. This thing blenders and snaps HARD!
