400cc Chinese Air Force Yak

400cc Chinese Air Force Yak

This Yak 11 is powered by a Moki 400cc radial and 38 x 18 prop! The 50-pound aerobat is an Airworld model that’s designed for 250cc power, but strengthened to handle the 400cc Moki. Pilot and owner Ali Machinchy notes that the plane was built and painted by Phil Noel at Pinnacle Aviation and has a scale paint scheme from the Chinese Air Force. Ali adds, “The plane is without a doubt the best warbird that I have ever owned. I have had larger more impressive ones, but none that tick as many boxes as this. Its big enough to make an impression. Yet small enough to be easy to handle. It can fly like a warbird, or a Reno racer. Its super strong yet solid and predictable. Its one of those rare cases that if I were to sell it, or lose it. I would be ordering another the very next day!” It sure is a beauty, and we thank Pete and Dean Coxon for shooting this great video and sharing it on YouTube.

  1. That was one hell of a landing! Nice job and loved the video!

  2. Is this the same Philip Noel who designed smaller e-power models for many years under the name Philip Noel Designs? Or his son? I have a short kit for a Philip Noel Me262 EDF waiting to be built.

  3. This is the very same person, Phil Noel of PN Designs/Pinnacle Aviation

  4. That short final and landing was impressive to say the least.
