You probably wont get an answer on that untill after the shootout. I am trying to finish the 100cc so we can make sure there are no mojor changes needed. So far everything is good.

This is exactly what I've been looking for (100cc version). This is the only airframe that will steer me away from the 3DHS 103" Extra (hope Ben isn't watching...). Build it and I will come.

Now why would the little guy have all the cooling holes cut out of the front of it. Most are going to be powered by a single so just need the cooling opening at the bottom. Looks like they just shrunk down the 100cc cowl. Perhaps the production ones won't be. Hope not, the front seems to be an integral part of it judging by the other photos.

The small one is exactly the same as the larger one. I just used them to show a before and after shot of what I cut out.

Re: Bill Hempel 100cc Yak-55M?????

I will get you the specs on Friday, the plane is loaded for some flying in the morning. The W/S is 88", but I am not sure on the length. I will also get some inflight photos if my camera man shows.
Just to be clear, the 100cc is 101" and the 50cc is 88".

Your camera man needs to show... what is the weight of the 50cc yak? or is it the 100cc your flying tomarrow?

OK the length is 74" for the 50cc. Here are a couple of pics from this morning. Played with the CG a bit more, and the plane keeps getting better.

Nice shots!

Hey, that prop is terribly close to the cowl. Everyone says you should have one prop width clearance there. Not sure I agree, but that's what all the guys say for the round-cowl's.
