Art-Tech Yak 54 3D Aerobatic Plane V2 (Updated Brushless Motor Version) - Receiver Ready (PNP)

The Art-Tech Yak 54 design makes it a very good flyer at both high and low speed. The plane is capable of many aerobatic and 3D moves (including hovering) and has excellent flight stablility to boot. We think the ArtTech Yak54 is a great platform to learn 3D flight because of its forgiving nature and great flight characteristics. This is the new version two of the Arttech Yak with the upgraded brushless outrunner motor.

Features

  • Upgraded powerplant with brushless motor
  • Large-size control surfaces provide smooth and stable or aggressive aerobatic performance in one plane
  • Durable and lightweight foam construction.
  • Simple and fast construction
  • Excellent flight characteristics
  • Brushless motor, ESC and 3 micro servos installed

  1. Just a quick update on my previous review...

    Posted by Eric Miller on 20th Mar 2014

    the flight is okay. not much overall power, but it is only a $80 plane at the time i purchased. nothing a little upgrade cant fix... anyways, here is what it looks like completely stock in the air...

  2. Nice plane for the price

    Posted by Rich B on 21st Nov 2013

    Pros:
    The build was quick and easy.
    The plane flies great.
    Solid foam construction.

    Cons:
    Landing gear is very light weight and bends easy.
    The cowl is paper thin and will tear very easily.

    The CG is not correct in the included instructions; it will fall in the 80-87 mm range. I assembled the plane as packaged with MotionRC’s recommended 1300 battery and flew it, it was a little tail heavy but flyable. I adjusted the CG from there. Although the plane is capable of quit a few 3D maneuvers it is not an all out hard core 3D plane. It is a little under powered but is still quit manageable to fly 3D. If you want to just fly around there is no problem with that as well. At this price I would recommend this for someone wanting to get start flying 3D… repairs would be easy enough.

    Improvements I made to the plane are as follows:
    Flat carbon spar in the main wing (To stiffen up the wing)

    Hot glued an additional piano wire on each side of the landing gear running from the wheel pants to the fuselage beside the battery compartment. (To stiffen up the landing gear)

    Glued a carbon rod on each side of the plane behind the main wing to the front section of the rudder and elevator servos compartments. (Inside of the fuselage / Too stiffen up the tail section)

    Glued the rudder and elevator assembly to the fuselage. (The screws that hold these together seemed too weak for 3D flying)


  3. An awsome acrobatic plane

    Posted by Rich on 30th Oct 2013

    First, Thanks Motion RC, I really like this plane and recommend it for intermediate pilots. It was well packaged with everything installed even the decals on. The trim tape just needed a little pressing down; but, hey you get every dollar of value paid. Assembly time was about 30 minutes, attach the wing, cockpit, landing gear and the tail feathers and it is ready for your reciever and battery. I installed a Tactic TR624 receiver and an Admiral 1300 mA 3S, 25C battery that fit perfectly. With the outrunner motor, ESC and servos installed assembly was quick. What my copy of the instructions left OUT was the control surfaces set up and the CG balance point. I added an ounce inside the motor cowl to achieve proper balance at three (3.0") inches from the leading edge. Without the added balance weight the balance point was at 3.25" making it a bit tail heavy and stalled easily. The Tactic 650 radio made it easy to setup the three-rate throws for flight surfices (35%, 50% 75%).The control surfaces I found the following the best: Elevator at 1/2" low rate, 3/4" for medium and 1-1/4" for high; Rudder at 3/4" low rate, 1-1/4" for medium and 2" for high; and the Aileron 1/2" low rate, 3/4" for medium and 1-1/4" for high. Low rate may not sound like much, but trust me the control surfaces are very large and EFFECTIVE! The roll rate on medium rate is very quick. A faint heart kept me away from the high rate.

    Take-off is easy, just use caution though as you want some speed and a light pull of up elevator to prevent a "snap roll." The plane flew great with minum trim needed to correct flight and the color scheme makes it easy to track. Its speed is awsome and stable, and can be slowed down for a nice easy landing, just keep a little power on during landing.

    The weak part is the landing gear wire; on our grass field it got alittle bent up until I got the landings down. But once on the ground it taxies very well.

    I am glad that I bought the Yak 54, it is fun to fly, very acrobatic and can go vertical if the need is felt. :-) It is the perfect size for the back seat trip to the field. It is my new "Go To" plane.

    Have fun and enjoy. Thanks Motion RC for a great looking plane with performance.

  4. Great Bang For THE BUCK

    Posted by Mike Barnett on 24th Oct 2013

    Warning - The CG in my manual says between the front of canopy and screw holding front fuselage. WRONG !! I have the outrunner (gearbox-less) version. After adding several ounces of lead in the cowl to meet spec. - it went straight down, wide open into the ground from a six foot embankment hand toss at a slight up angle. TWICE !! What could go wrong - eh! Broke the fuselage in half (lower) just behind canopy (reinforce this area) and crushed motor mount. Built a new plywood mount using glued together pieces for pattern. Reinforced front wing hold down. Removed rubber coating on one side of esc (metal cooling plate) and mounted in airflow behind motor. I also soldered a crossbrace on landing gear from music wire about 1-1/4 inches below fuselage from leg to leg. In desperation, I measured 1/3 of the wing chord including ailerons and moved CG forward about 5 mm. CG is82mm back from leading edge. WOW, What a difference. With this CG (trimmed out) I can roll it on its back and she flies level with a very slight down input. I love this plane now after a very rough start. I think it is a very good entry level plane for learning 3D (after a few modifications). Thanks Motion RC !!!!


  5. 80 Bucks

    Posted by Lon Ross on 11th Sep 2013

    1st, this is not a $300.00 3D, it is a 80 dollar foamy that will fly out of the box. It won't last forever and you won't win trophy's with it. You might have to replace some parts or upgrade if you want a killer plane, but, if you want a cheap foam plane that works and does some 3D stuff out of the box, here you go! Motion warns you as it is a "clearance" sale and I think you get more then you pay for at 80 bucks, a motor, ESC and servos would cost you as much, thanks Motion


  6. So, so....

    Posted by Eric A. Miller on 6th Sep 2013

    Well, first things first, I'm going to start with the good.... As usual motionrc processed and shipped out my order faster than the competition. The price of this plane is really good. However, the landing gear is completely useless unless you modify it. The manual is some of the worst english imaginable. Luckily, the pictures help a little bit and it is really simple to assemble. The props are way off balance, but is easy to remedy. The foam itself is actually better than expected. It's nice and dense, but it is pretty light. Go ahead and pull out the ESC and put a 30amp in before you even attempt flight. The stock 20amp heats up too quickly, and it's by far one of the biggest and heaviest 20amps on the market. But what do you expect for $80? Overall, I am happy, but there's just a few minor things that I had to change right off the bat. This version is direct driven so no worries about a gearbox. The servos seem fine and should hold up to use, but I'd recommend replacing them with better quality servos as soon as possible.

Build Notes

When building this plane, We recommend a small dab of hot glue to help hold the horizontal stabilizer firmly in place.
