E-flite Carbon-Z Yak 54

Oct 21, 2010 No Comments by


Quique Somenzini shares details about the E-flite Carbon-Z Yak 54 that he designed.

It combines a revolutionary Carbon-Z™ airframe with a custom 25-size brushless power system. What you get is an unlimited 3D rocket with a breathtaking thrust-to-weight ratio of 2:1. Knife edge loops, hovering torque rolls at half throttle, ballistic uplines to the limits of sight – the Carbon-Z Yak 54 does it all, and with a sense of energy and precision that makes it feel like you’re flying a much larger plane.


Best of all, it’s available in a Bind-N-Fly® version that you can have airborne in the time it takes to charge its battery and bind it to your full-range DSM2™ aircraft transmitter.* A Plug-N-Play® version without transmitter, receiver, battery or charger is also available.

*Transmitters with adjustable dual rates and expo are recommended.

What is Carbon-Z?

Carbon-Z is the patent-pending construction method developed by E-flite that fuses the lightweight durability of a Z-Foam™ structure with the strength and rigidity of carbon fiber. The result is an airframe structure that has the lightweight strength and rigidity of wood with an exterior that looks great in all temperatures and weather conditions.
