Strengths:
Great Value, good to see the enclosed GRP servo kit and horns. . . .
Weaknesses:
Undercarriage. Mine failed after 1st flight, now beefed up with carbob fibre and epoxy, but its still a weak area due to the design. Your landings have to be almost perfect for it to survive. .
Overall:
Good aerobat, easy to fly and it has a thing floaty wing, but watch that undercart!. . . .

Strengths:
The yak come with the usual cnc slot together construction which is both light and strong, covered in oracover with not a wrinkle in sight, 2 peice wing corbon tube, fully aerofoiled stab, blemish free glass cowel and spats, full top deck canopy for easy accsess, the kit includes full hardware including loverly little servo output arm extentions for bevel to bevel movement. . . .
Weaknesses:
Like all light weight artf`s the undercart mount is the weakpoint but some tri stock and tem mins work sorts this. . . .
Overall:
This is a very complete kit and easy to build, Infact i did mine in less than 24hrs, You can use either mini servos or full size standard (i went with standard Speckrum DS821`s all round) I also used the recomended power train Thumper 4260 motor Tornado 70amp opto esc and 4s1p 3300 tornado cells, works out at 810watt at 58amp on a 15x8 xoar wooden prop. With 5s1p its got crazy power but i have no fig`s yet. Ive just had 10 flights on mine and i love it. .
