Yak 55 from HobbyKing


This great size HobbyKing® ™Yak 55 has been designed with 3D flying very much in mind, made from virtually unbreakable EPP Foam, it is ideal for practicing 3D maneouvers over and over, get it wrong? No problem, the Yak 55 will just bounce and even if you do get it horribly wrong, 5 minutes and a bottle of Cyano & Kicker is all it takes to restore your pride and your Yak.

This is a superbly designed, top quality Almost Ready To Fly model that features a proper profile wing and extensive use of carbon fibre rod & CF square tubing for extra stiffness. The control surfaces are large enough for any Hard-core 3D pilot, but just to make double sure you are happy, the model comes with servo horn extensions for maximum throws. Big wheels that can handle almost any flying field & plug in wings secured with rubber bands for easy strip down and transportation add to the list of practical features.

The motor mount is pre-installed and will accept up to a 35mm brushless outrunner, the lipoly mount with pre-installed velcro strap is a perfect size slot for a Turnigy 1800mAh 3s and to do this brilliant model justice, we reccomend digital micro servo's all round. The Hobbyking Yak 55 fly's really well, so well that even if you are not interested in 3D flying, set it up on low rates and it makes a brilliant parkflyer. However you choose to abuse....sorry.....use your Yak, it's a huge amount of fun and at this price

Although I do my best to complete this library, you may not find the model you are looking for.

In this case, do not hesitate to ask me to add it : You're not bothering me. Please be patient, depending on my workload, I may take a few days to work on your model and gather information.

I'm sometime asked to add a non flying model to this library but unfortunately, it's not the focus of this website
