Extreme Flight 110" 100cc Yak 54 Build!

Hey All!

I hooked up with the MAN, Chris H. this morning and picked up the 110" Yak 54 ! Before I get started I just want to say is, that the reason I had to meet Chris, is that the 110" Yak did not come ready for shipping, so we agreed to meet half way from FLA and GA. Now after inspecting the plane, its perfedtion was flawed by shipping damage just being in a big freight container. The fuse was compressed a little so the inside sheeting of the wing pocket had slight damage, nothing major and an easy fix. Now, had it been ready for shipping like the 88" Yaks and Extras, There probably would have not been any damage because of box compression to the fusealage. Extreme Flight takes extra step to protect their products with ply-wood skeleton and double boxing.

Also to my surprise, I picked up a 50cc Blue and Yellow Extra 300 , it arrived in perfect condition, ply-wood skeleton and all. In additon i picked up the new electric plane that has raised the bar, the 58" Extra 300. I will post pics of the 50cc Extra on another thread.

Anyway on with the 110" Yak 54. I un-packed and inspected everything. The Carbon Fiber LG is awesome!. Airfoiled and strong!. All I can say is that the 110" is built just like the 88", but BIGGER! I put he 88" cowling side by side with the 110" for comparison. Also see the difference in the wing next to the QQ 102" Yak wing. OH YEAH!

Chris h. is building one with a DA85 s/ tuned pipe. That should be an awesome combo. I will be using DA100 w/ ES Composite pipes, HS 5955's, Power Box, 2.4g X9303 rx & 9 ch rx.

Looks like there is plenty of room for the ES Composite Tuned pipes!

Last but not least.............the wings.

There is no assembly manual as of yet,but Chris said it should assemble very similar to the 88". I will actually start assembly Monday evening by mounting the motor first so I can measure for the header drop so I can order the headers.

Rennie,
It sounds like the trip was worth it, 3 great new planes. I will be watching with great interest. I will be helping a friend with the 58" Extra when it gets here next week. He will be flying in our EMAC series with it. I am currently flying a 74" YAK in EMAC, and would love to upgrade to the 50cc Extra in electric for that series. I also have been watching with interest the 110" YAK. Just a bit bigger than most 100cc size planes, it should be perfect for freestyle, and fit my hanger perfectly, just a bit smaller than my 40% IMAC plane, and I have a DA-100 just waiting for the right airframe.

Keep the pictures and details comming. I love all of Chris's planes!
