Once I mastered the Wing Tiger, I was looking for something a little bit more challenging...The YAK is it!!!! The acrobatics are sick...I look like a real pro. The parts are cheap and the plane is easy to repair...giving me the confidence to push the envelope...

Parkflyers Yak 54
December 27, 2010
from Chatham, ON Canada
I recently ordered this plane from parkflyers rc, and let me tell you, I do not regret it! Shipping was great, and they responded to my emails, and the plane is a lot of fun. The motor is plenty powerful for 3D flight, although as you would expect, about halfway through the flight you start losing some power and takes more throttle to hover. It is perfect for doing some cool moves at you local park or soccerfields. Radio system also works well, haven't yet encountered a problem as far as that goes. Another plus is that the plane is easy to repair. Although i have not had the plane for too long, I've had some pretty good crashes and it repaired easily(Although one time i needed to order another gearbox, from here it was quick and cheap too). Only negative i have found is that the landing gear is a little flimsy for less than perfect landings, but even that is not a hard fix!!! I love it!

RC Airplanes: Electric v. Nitro Aircrafts
At Parkflyers RC, “Electric Ready to Fly RC Airplanes and RC Helicopters” is our mantra. With electric RC airplanes, you avoid the bigger costs and dangers associated with nitro-powered RC planes. Additionally, with electric RC airplanes and remote control helicopters, you get a safe and environmentally clean way to have RC fun. Neither AMA membership cards nor RC flight insurance are needed to use our electric powered RC planes; also, you are able to fly within most parks around the country without a permit. Essentially all you need to fly our RC planes is an open field.
RC airplanes that are electrically powered have several advantages over nitro RC planes.. They are clean running, make very little noise and are easier to operate than Nitro RC airplanes. Electric aircrafts don’t require messy fuel, glow plugs or engine adjustments. Just charge your batteries, connect the wires properly and your electric RC plane will work without hassle.
