This plane has been a hit everywhere it flies! It's great for both those just learning to fly or 3D and the pro flyer.The Yak flies like its' depron brother, but has the "bounce-ability" of EPP.This plane was designed by Leadfeather from RCGroups, and is being made available through WMPF with his permission. Be sure to check out the forum here and the build guide here .

All flat foamies now come with the trussing for the bottom included in the kit at no extra charge.

I've got six flights on the plane and this is a stupid fun little airplane. I bought it to practice some maneuvers figuring if I wreck it I'm not out much money and my flying today showed that. I started working on harriers, inverted flight, flat rudder turns, loops and rolls low to the ground, flat spins and other craziness. I'm not looking to become the next great 3D pilot but I would like to expore this type of planes capabilities and become a better pilot. I'm using a 2S 600mAh battery and getting 7 minutes of flying at mostly 1/2 throttle, from a harrier if I go full throttle she will accelerate going straight up. I may try a 3S battery for fun. I found the low end speed of the plane really good, she'll fly at walking speed and remain controllable. I made the mistake of using Roc Hobby (FMS) servos and they don't center very well, the plane was always out of trim after full deflection of the controls. I'm going to order servos from West Michigan Park Flyers in hopes they will be better than the Roc Hobby ones I put in. The plane was a quick and easy build, I was intimidated by the thought of cutting and gluing all the carbon fiber rods to the underside for strength but that proved to be really easy to do. If you're looking for a fun little foamy to toss around the sky this plane fits the bill and looks good.

My favorite foamy
My all time favorite foamy! Flies great on 2 or 3 cells. Easily repaired with Foam Tac adhesive. Sadly after 7 years and hundreds of flights she's more adhesive from repairs than foam now. Alas, I just ordered a brand new one and look forward to a new neon orange one!

Logo plane!
My 5th WMParkflyers plane! I always wondered how well the Yak in the WMParkflyers logo flew, so I called Barb & requested the Yak55 painted red with black flames...first of all, what a beautiful paint job!!! Second, she tracks straight and because it's a WMParkflyers plane, it flys slow and takes a whooping!
