Re: "New to Me" --- Yak - 55M

WOW...looks fantastic Ray.

Nice touch on the prop and spinner. Can't wait till you fly it. So gentle and slow but so capable. It's one of the top 60cc airframes out there.

Congrats Ray and enjoy! Update us after the maiden plz.

It was Wingburners! How could you possible have motor problems? Didn't it come with a magic screwdriver? LOL

On a serious note, that 55 is an awesome plane. Definitely one of the nicest planes i have ever 3D'd. I spinner dipped my last one a Huckfest last fall. I maidened a "new to me" one about 3weeks ago. And i have a spare when its expiration date comes due! LOL

Here is a pic of new latest "new to me" 55 taken 2weeks ago at Hucking In the Valley.
