Ever noticed that wherever you go there always seem to be people flying a yak55 RC plane?

The two-piece stabilizer design is more common on a 50cc size plane. But Aerobeez has incorporated this feature into their 30cc planes, which makes it much easier to install and remove.  The slot are pre cut to fit so you do not need to worry about gluing the stab on improperly.  And in case is you damage one side of the stab, it’s very easy to replace.  This is a very nice feature and it really makes it easy for you.

As a standard feature for most Aerobeez’s giant scale models, the Yak-55M is supplied with high quality carbon fiber landing gear, wing tube, stab tube, and tail landing gear bracket.

Another great feature is a built in cowl ring that conceals all mounting screws on the cowl for a much smoother appearance.
