The new, IMAA-legal Yak-55M ARF is so versatile that anyone with low-wing experience can be confident at the sticks. It accepts many popular gasoline engines in the recommended range — and allows easy installation of a standard Pitts muffler, canister OR tuned pipe. The almost unlimited performance potential matches the championship-winning Russian original.
ü Designed for all-out 3D performance, with lightweight, built-up balsa/ply construction and a two-piece wing for easy transport.
ü Delivers nearly unlimited aerobatic performance with any popular 50 and 55 cc gas engine — Great Planes recommends the DLE™ Engines DLE-55cc.
ü Use a standard Pitts-style muffler or take advantage of the built-in channel to install a canister or power-boosting tuned pipe. Great Planes includes the mounting materials for whichever exhaust system you choose.
ü Large canopy hatch allows quick, easy access to your on-board electronics.
ü Bold, multi-color MonoKote® trim helps you stay oriented during aggressive 3D flight. A molded replica radial engine adds exciting scale-like detail.
ü Fiberglass cowl and spats along with a detailed dummy radial engine complement the scale looks.
