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

Up date on my Yak - 55M

Doing some maintenance on the Yak , to ensure all is good for summer of 2121

Some things I found --- need some attention

-- Cowl ply ring needed to be fixed in two places -- glue let go

-- Land gear loose and broke left side of Fuse. repaired and recovered -- our grass field is a little bumpy

-- 2 magnets replaced on the Fuse. --- that helps to hold canopy on

-- new plugs and carb fuel screen

-- new prop --- painted strips on it

Have put it away now for the winter --- should now have a trouble free summer of flying my 3DHS Yak - 55M again

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

Looking better than new again. I cannot remember what year it was when I first seen this plane fly in GP but it was awhile back now. It is great to see that it is still flying and still looking like new.

Dennis -- I got the Yak from Jack in 2016 , it only had a few flights on it then , one of the best planes I have ever had , keeping it in good shape as it is my go to plane for fun . I put around 50 flights on it each year ---2021 will be the 6th year of flying it
