    My best flying buddy Bill, moved away this summer. We still keep in touch over the phone, and he was so excited to tell me his new crack yak. He's is a huge fan twisted, and he made this video just for me.

    I miss my bro, but I am so happy to see him doing what he loves, which is flying. Great flying Bill, and to Steve, thanks for the great video.

    My 39" Crack Yak arrived last night. I just dropped it off at [MENTION=3014]AKfreak[/MENTION]'s house. He is kind enough to put it together for me since I am running short on time due to career imposed time constraints. If any of you have seen his build's, you know I am in good hands :D

    Tom I don't think it would be inappropriate to post some pics of the parts and update us on your build progress in this thread as you go along :D

    I went with the following hardware (I had most of it on-hand already so the choice was made by default)

    Power System:

    Emax BL2215/25 brushless motor http://headsuphobby.com/Emax-BL2215-25-Outrunner-Brushless-Motor-G-186.htm
    Props will be 10x4.7

    30A Esc that I bought in a bulk purchase a few years ago. It performs well but I can't tell you much else about it.

    3x Pulse 35c 800 mah packs. I will be using deans connectors since that is what the esc already has. If I hate it I will change to jst.

    4x RCtimer D9025MG Digital Servos http://www.aerialtechhobbies.com/el...mg-digital-metal-gear-servo-2-5kg-13g-0-09sec

    Controlled by Hitec A9x and a corona mini rx.

    Other building materials include Foamtac glue and blenderm tape.

    Tom and I will give feedback on all the

    Tom says he will bang it out in about a week... I'm not going to hold him to that, but I am very excited to fly this plane :D

    I am pressing the control surfaces flat now. I let them sit stacked and flexed for 3 days or so, then the build fun will begin. I promise to throw up some pics and some of the steps along the way. Its going to be a great plane. It has airfoil wings, and its huge. I am pretty impressed at what I have seen so far.
     
  7. Oooooohhhhh....that would go nice with my crack yak lite!!

    [MENTION=3014]AKfreak[/MENTION] fyi I just put my pulse packs on the scale. They are actually 860 mah and weigh in at 76 grams befor I solder the connector on. I probably need to get one of these to you for cg.
