Anyone flying this model with an OS-300 twin? I guess it would be a good

With that type of power what type of servos are you proposing to use and
have you made any radical changes to the structural strength. ie tail
struts. I’ve a Tigre 20 cc and am only going to use coreless with
metal gears. I’ve a Xtra Wot with a 25cc using only ball raced but have
strengthened the tail with carbon rod struts, with a servo on each elevator.
But the Yak uses a combined joiner on the elevator, and the ailerons seem to
have a larger surface area.

Im sure it will go very well but also be extremely heavy…………I’m
powering mine with a Moki 210…….. I think I would be inclined to contact
Flair and ask their advice on strengthening etc, you cant afford mistakes on
a model this size.
btw John.hows yours coming along?? any pics yet??

I’m using HITEC 605 non-metal gear servos in a lot of high-stress airplanes.
Never had a servo wearing down. Even on a towing-tug with a zg62 servicing 2
years very intensely.
The structure of the FLAIR Yak seems very well thought out. As it is in the
first place a scale-model, I wouldn’t push the flight enveloppe too far. But
the short nose calls for a rather heavy engine. And the sound of the
Just finishing the second half of the wing. Still some 2 months to go ;-))
