AM 33% YAK BUILD

Well guys I thought that I would start a build thread on this plane since there is very little info on it. I havent rieceved the plane yet but I will be getting it during christmas. I didnt actually know I was going to get it until I found it in my storage closet. I almost had a heart attack . Here are some pics of the secret present. If you guys have any special requests of info about the plane ask and I will do my best. The engine will be a da 75(maybe)or if not I will be getting a 3w 80xi. I will have hs-5955 servos all around. I dont know anything else as I will rely on your guys's experience with the batts and recievers. I will begin the build christmas morning .

No unfortunatly, I took a peek hoping the same thing but it turned out to be this. Oh well, it still is awsome looking.

Re: AM 33% YAK BUILD

Neogenisis. The main thing I want to know is how good is the plane at precision IMAC because I already know it is a good 3d'er right?

Re: AM 33% YAK BUILD

I loved my 33% yak, it flys precision pretty darn good too. I had a 3w 80cs on a 3w can and it had plenty of power, not ballistic, but plenty. I ran a single fromeco 4800 peerless battery for the rx, single badger switch, and regulator, all wired with deans connectors from fromeco. I used the graphtech carbon gear, but the sd models carbon gear is a lot lighter and would recommend upgrading to it. If you go with a canister, the 3w wraparound header will work with a little modification. Great flying plane, I would get another one. One thing I did do was I made a baffle in the bottom of the cowling to help with cooling, I will try to find a pic of it and post it.

Re: AM 33% YAK BUILD

3d is great.....never really tried any precision stuff with it. With as large as the flying surfaces are....I really don't know how to comment. I know I have problems with tail wag....and still do to this day. I was running a Hitec 5735 1/4 digital servo to start wth.....way too much slop in it. After moving to a Hitec 5955 with kevlar cables that are very tight, the wag is still there. I'm not sure where exactly where the problem is, but I'm almost convinced that the rudder is way oversized for the job. I've also been told that it's the oversized counter balance on the rudder that's causing it. I'm not sure....but it sure is unnerving to see the tail bouncing side to side while your trying to do your thing.

The only thing I would really recommend changing/re-inforcing is the cowling. They are so thin......that normal engine vibration has caused tears\cracks in my cowl where it was trimmed around the engine.


And just for a quick rundown of what I used.

ZDZ 80 RV-J
Hitec 5955 on rudder
Hitec 5645 on aileron
Hitec 5945 on elevator
32 oz tank
Emcotec DSPI Mini
Fromeco 2400 x2 on RX
Fromeco 2400 on ign
A little under 24 lbs dry. " I don't remember the exact weight"


Performance is awsome....verticle unlimited.....3D is fun as hell

Re: AM 33% YAK BUILD

I heard that the power to weight ratio is very good on this plane. I was looking at the zdz also. I am thinking about using this plane at the begining of the imac season next summer until my 40% is done. What do you guys think?

Re: AM 33% YAK BUILD

I would go with the zdz super 80 over the 3w 80 if I did another one. My friends super 80 just cooks compared to my 3W 80. It will fly imac very well, just dont go too far aft on the cg and it will fly precise very well.

Re: AM 33% YAK BUILD

if you want to run with a ZDZ 80 RV-J............you will have to fab your own header. The stock wrap around header doesn't fit too well. I've got pics if you need more info.

MAN.. you ruined your own suprise.

I wish i was your age... and found a 33% YAK under the tree...

I always got a pair of tube socks, or a rock when I was 15.
