Instruction Manual
YAK 54
• Do not start the engine if people are near. Do not
stand in line with the side of the propeller.
• Make engine adjustments from behind the propeller
only. Do not reach around the spinning propeller.
TOOLS AND SUPPLIES NEEDED
• Medium C/A glue
• 30 minute epoxy
• 6 minute epoxy
• Hand or electric drill
• Assorted drill bits
• Modeling knife
• Straight edge ruler
• 2 bender plier
• Wire cutters
• Masking tape
• Thread lock
• Paper towels
• Rubbing alcohol
PREPARATIONS
Remove the tape and separate the ailerons
from the wing and the elevators from the stab.
Use a covering iron with a covering sock on
high heat to tighten the covering if necessary.
Apply pressure over sheeted areas to
thoroughly bond the covering to the wood.
SUGGESTION
To avoid scratching your new airplane, do not unwrap
the pieces until they are needed for assembly. Cover
your workbench with an old towel or brown paper,
both to protect the aircraft and to protect the table.
Keep a couple of jars or bowls handy to hold the
small parts after you open the bag.
NOTE:
1. Please trial fit all the parts. Make sure you have
the correct parts and that they fit and are aligned
properly before gluing! This will assure proper
assembly. The Yak 50cc is hand made from
natural materials, every plane is unique and
minor adjustments may have to be made.
However, you should find the fit superior and
assembly simple.

INSTALL THE AILERONS SERVOS & PUSHRODS
1. Attach the servo extension to the aileron servo.
Secure the connectors together using a large
piece of heat shrink tubing, tape or other
method for securing the connectors together.
2. The painted and plastic parts used in this kit are
fuel proof. However, they are not tolerant of many
harsh chemicals including the following: paint
thinner, C/A glue accelerator, C/A glue debonder
and acetone. Do not let these chemicals come in
contact with the colors on the covering and the
plastic parts.
3.
2. Turn the wing panel right side up. Using a
modeling knife, remove the covering from over
the precut servo box.
The Yak 50cc will perform 3-D aerobatics
easily if you use the largest engines
recommended within the engine range. If you
setup your airplane to do 3D maneuvers, you
will need to be throttle conscious; that is,
never apply full throttle on straight and level
flying or in dives to prevent flutter.
Remove the
covering
SAFETY PRECAUTION:
• This is not a toy.
• Be sure that no other flyers are using your radio
frequency.
• Do not smoke near fuel.
• Store fuel in a cool, dry place, away from
children and pets.
• Wear safety glasses.
• The glow plug clip must be securely attached to
the glow plug.
• Do not flip the propeller with your fingers.
• Keep loose clothing and wires away from the propeller.

INSTALLING THE STOPPER ASSEMBLY
!!
1. The stopper has been pre-assembled at the factory.
2. Using a modeling knife, cut one length of silicon
fuel line (the length of silicon fuel line is
calculated by how the weighted clunk should
rest about 8mm away from the rear of the tank
and move freely inside the tank). Connect one
end of the line to the weighted clunk and the
other end to the nylon pick up tube in the
stopper.
Do not secure the tank into place permanently
until after balancing the airplane. You may need
to remove the tank to mount the battery in the
fuel tank compartment.
9. To secure the fuel tank in place, apply a bead of
silicon sealer to the forward area of the tank,
where it exits the fuselage behind the engine
mounting box and to the rear of the tank at the
forward bulkhead.

BALANCING
1. It is critical that your airplane be balanced
correctly. Improper balance will cause your
plane to lose control and crash.
THE CENTER OF GRAVITY IS LOCATED
140mm BACK FROM THE LEADING EDGE
OF THE WING, AT THE FUSELAGE.

Instruction Manual
YAK 54
2. Mount the wing to the fuselage. Using a couple
of pieces of masking tape, place them on the
top side of the wing 140mm back from the
leading edge, at the fuselage sides.
CONTROL THROWS
3. Turn the airplane upside down. Place your
fingers on the masking tape and carefully lift
the plane .
2. The control throws should be measured at the
widest point of each control surface.
1. We highly recommend setting up a plane using
the control throws listed.
3. Check to be sure the control surfaces move in
the correct directions.
4. If the nose of the plane falls, the plane is nose
heavy. To correct this first move the battery
pack further back in the fuselage. If this is not
possible or does not correct it, stick small
amounts of lead weight on the fuselage under
the horizontal stabilizer. If the tail of the plane
falls, the plane is tail heavy. To correct this,
move the battery and receiver forward or if this
is not possible, stick weight into the firewall.
When balanced correctly, the airplane should
sit level or slightly nose down when you lift it up
with your fingers.

LATERAL BALANCE
!
FLIGHT PREPARATION PRE FLIGHT CHECK
After you have balanced a plane on the C.G.
You should laterally balance it. Doing this will
help the airplane track straighter.
1. Completely charge your transmitter and receiver
batteries before your first day of flying.
1. Turn the airplane upside down. Attach one loop
of heavy string to the engine crankshaft and
one to the tail wheel wire. With the wings level,
carefully lift the airplane by the string. This may
require two people to make it easier.
2. Check every bolt and every glue joint in your
plane to ensure that everything is tight and well
bonded.
2. If one side of the wing fall, that side is heavier
than the opposite. Add small amounts of lead
weight to the bottom side of the lighter wing
half's wing tip. Follow this procedure until the
wing stays level when you lift the airplane.
4. Check the control surface
3. Double check the balance of the airplane
5. Check the receiver antenna . It should be fully
extended and not coiled up inside the fuselage.
6. Properly balance the propeller.
13
I/C FLIGHT GUIDELINES
When ready to fly, first extend the
transmitter aerial.
Switch on the transmitter.
Operate the control sticks on the
transmitter and check that the control
surfaces move freely and in the
CORRECT directions.
ALWAYS land the model INTO the
wind, this ensures that the model lands
at the slowest possible speed.
Check that the transmitter batteries
have adequate power.
Switch off the receiver.
Switch on the receiver.
Check that the wings are correctly
fitted to the fuselage.
ALWAYS take off into the wind.
Switch off the transmitter.
If the model does not respond correctly
to the controls, land it as soon as
possible and correct the fault.
Empty the fuel tank after flying, fuel left
in the tank can cause corrosion and
lead to engine problems.
