A modern, racing version of the post-war Russian trainer
Based on the full-size aircraft that races at the famous Reno circuit in the US, Seagull's 20cc warbird spans 1803mm (71"), and is certainly eye-catching!
If you love the sight and sound of the unlimited class racers tearing round the pylons at the annual Reno gathering in the USA then you'll adore Seagull's Yak-11. It's based on Perestroika, the machine modified from the Russian training aircraft that first flew in 1945.
Seagull's model is built using high-quality, laser-cut balsa and ply to provide an accurate scale outline including an airfoiled tail surfaces. Plug-in wings make for easy assembly at the flying field and a factory-added Oracover scheme accurately represents the racing machine's scheme.
Add a beautiful matching cowl, detailed cockpit and hand-painted pilot and you've a model that's certainly going to turn heads.
A large top hatch provides access to a very roomy interior and will find favour with those who prefer electric power. In that respect Seagull provide their usual motor mounting kit and suggest a 110-size outrunner and 8 or 9 LiPo cells, sufficient to generate some 2000 watts of power.
The model requires 9 servos (each retract has its own servo) while split flaps are fitted and will help slow the model for landing.
