Shortbus:

Ask Justin for some pointers when you are done with yours!

When are you going to bring out the Raptor?

Hey guys,

Very nice build thread. I know you'll love yours. Feel free to ask if you need equipment suggestions. Looking forward to the flight report.

A couple videos of my Yak flying:

Airfoilz Yak flying at the X-Men Castle: Phoenix 25, Berg 7 (1 min 57 sec)

Airfoilz Yak, Castle Creations Phoenix 25, APEX 1350 Lipos (2 min 0 sec)


Enjoy,

Shaun
Team Airfoilz

ShortBus, at your pace, in two years your plane should look like this....

BOWE.
Have you flown your YAK yet?
It looks as if you placed the wing spar too far back.
This may cause you a few problems, and it may not.
BUT It looks as if the wing spar is about 1.5" too far back.
And has kind of changed the airfoil of the wing into
a boxish shape.

Not doggin your work.. just wanted to know if you knew!

Good luck!

The first picture shows the tail of the plane before I cut the top out so I could insert the Vertical Stab.

Second picture is the tail after I cut away the top. You can see that there is still a small amount of material remaining on one side. Make sure to GET ALL OF IT OUT. I removed it after I took the picture.

Third picture is the horiz. Stab and the Vertical Stab glued together.


Fourth picture is the elevator/rudder assembly, and the filler pieces glued into the fuse.

First picture is of the Landing Gear block with thread added for strength.

DO NOT TRY AND INSERT THE LANDING GEAR INTO THE BLOCK UNTIL IT IS GLUED INTO THE PLANE!!!!

Second picture is of the landing gear block glued into the fuse. You can cut out the curve at the top of the slot so that the block will fit in flush with the fuse....OR just push harder and it will go in


Third picture is the fuse doublers glued to the fuse.


And last but not least! It has legs now!
