    I'll see if i can't get more pics of it in the next week... The Yak now how 5 flights total on it. I'm still mixing out some bugs. Last flight of the day yesterday i had a dead stick, I Managed to land the airplane on the runway and all was well. I was in awe tho... after trouble shooting the motor as to why it dead-sticked i noticed that the gas tank was sucked dry. :D. Mith did i great job setting up those tanks because there was not a single drop in the tank!

    Good JuJu is always good, for some reason the basin is good for getting planes (big ones that is) back to the runway. I think in my time at that field with big planes I have only put 2 in the weeds and it was my fault, all the rest have been able to get back to the runway. Send me a PM when you are going back out with the Compie Paul.
