I've just built what I assume is a standard Crack Yak Ben, 32" span. Is this the one you mean?

The crack yak mini is around 600 mm span ( 24" ) and flies really well. Quick and not like yer avg indoor shockie type. My friend has one and its his fav indoor model. Looks very good, and I fancy one myself for next season.

Weight is uusually down to too much glue, servos, and battery - use a smaller than normal ( 450 ) indoor pack ( 250 -300 )and use the lightest servos you can that have the required torque.

Ah ok Ben, well I love the larger one, flies really well. I haven't been a great shockie fan to date but this one is changing my opinion of 'em for certain.
