Hola Carolina y Dennis, buenos dias!

How are you?  Here all is well and happy!  I'm sending you these pictures of my baby Yak 32%.  Yesterday, Monday, 17 March, I premiered without any adjustment, a real gem!


This Yak was bought from you in 2007 in the month of August, and I built for a friend, and once built  (only work in the wood) kept it for seven years!  In December 2013 last year I bought it to make it longer mine.  So I finished the task of the decor, painted, and installed the equipment.  Yesterday was the premier of this beautiful plane and did not need any adjustment, as always!!


Here I give you the links that demonstrate the truth of what I write, and as always I congratulate you on your wonderful kits.

Hi Caroline and Dennis,
I finished my Yak 54 two weeks ago. It took 4 months to build her.
The maiden went well, only one click of up trim.

I had only 25 fflights on her. But I can tell that She is flying very well 3D.
My set up is tail heavy for 3D.
All I can say is WOW.
I cant wait to finish my new 40% Edge 540..

Here are couple pictures from today:  Carden 32% Yak 54, 3W-110 CS

Hi Dennis and Caroline,

Here is the latest addition to the Padron hanger.  It was built by Jim Short with graphics by Kirby's.  She fly's like a big pattern bird - very stable and neutral - rock solid in high alpha too.  


Congratulations, you've done it again!  Many thanks,

My warmest greetings to Caroline and Dennis. It's been a long time, although I'm always checking your website.   


Last weekend, 11/08/2009, was my Yak 54's maiden flight.  That day I two flights to get the feeling of it, but this weekend I got brave and here are the pictures so you can also enjoy them.  Baby Yak DA 100 pulling it and all servos are JR 8611.  TX is a JR 12X. 

There are no words to describe how this plane flies, but you can say it in one: "Awesome."  I also recommend your wingbags.  They are the best money can get.


Thank you very much and best regards,

Hi Dennis and Caroline,


Here are a few pics from the Bomber Field fly-in. Had a good time and got a chance to see some old friends. Not to many aerobatic birds at this event.

I was told that there are only two types of airplanes, war birds and targets. Those guys are so funny. How's the new edge coming along? See ya...........

Dear Dennis & Caroline,
This was my first Carden build and I am really happy with the way it turned out.  My maiden flight was on May 3 and it only took
two clicks of up trim and then it was hands off.  It flew beautifully and the landings were spectacular.   

The YAK weighed in at 29 lbs
4 oz.    I recommend your plane to a lot of people who are also in the hobby along with the build sites on Flying Giants and John' Workbench. 

I really enjoyed building your plane, which only took me from Dec. 17 to the end of April, and would definitely do it again.  

Here are some pictures of the finished product, and there is even one with me in the picture.

If you want to share the pictures that would be fine with me.
Thank you again,

Dennis and Caroline,

I Just finished my new Yak. Haven't flown it yet but I think it will. As always no issues during the build: just need to do it more often.

This is the first one in several years after taking a break. Well, break is over and I'm back on my flying horse. Bird has a DA 150, Duralite batteries, JR radio gear that includes 8711's on all the surfaces with two 8711's driving the rudder.

We are using the 2.4 GHz radio system and it is working well. I'll have the bird at Joe Nall so you can do a walk around.

Thanks guys for all your support through out the years.
