ANOTHER yak foamy project...

Hey guys, Its just me again with another yak project. I started a thread a while back about
a shocky yak54 that I was building from plans that I had come across.
That little guy flew so well(that was until MadMax got a hold of it at the huckfest.... Just kidding
Max!!) The first Yak was built with 3mm depron foam, and Used a E-flite 300 outrunner,
phoenix 10 esc, 2 dymond 4.7g servos, and one hitec HS-60 for ailerons. Its a great setup,
and the plane weighed just under 5 ounces with a 3S 300mah lipo.
That was all great and grand, but trying to fly outside just didnt happen!
So here I am again, but this time i'm building with 6mm depron, and also making the whole
airframe larger. It has a 36 1/2 wingspan, and I hope to keep it right around 9 ounces with the
battery.
At this point, the airframe is built and painted, but thats as far as i've gotten so far...

Umm, you can make some kind of a template and just outline and cut them out, or I have used a bullet casing to punch holes out.

Re: ANOTHER yak foamy project...

All control surfaces are hinged, and the airframe is all glued together. I just finished cutting
servo slots in the fuse and finished hooking up the pull-pull on the rudder and elevator.
I wasnt sure how this was going to work out, but it looks like it will hold up well! I'm getting
around 60 degrees of throw from the tail section! Starting on the ailerons as I speak...
