Re: great planes yak 54

I have one of these planes and have been flying it for a couple of seasons.

I'm currently running an MT50 (50cc gas engine - that is now discontinued) I've been running a number of props including: A Xoar 21x8, Xoar 22x8, Falcon 21x8, and a Falcon 22x8.

It flies great with the MT50 engine, with almost unlimited vertical. A DLE 55 would be a great match, with lots of power - but you would have to be careful about ground clearance. 22" is close.

You'll need to reinforce the landing gear area.

Also, the firewall has to be reinforced a bit.

Overall it is a nice plane (it's a bit on the heavy side - compared to some of the other Yaks out there), but it doesn't have any real bad habits.

I definitely would not put anything smaller than a 50cc gas engine in this airplane.

Check out my assembly thread:

Let me know if you have any questions,
