We need a little more action on this "RC Flight" thread so I decided to start one showing off what we fly. Airplanes and Helis.
Here is my latest addition.

90 size Seagull Models Yak 54 64" Wingspan. The plane weighs in just under 10lbs. It has 4 Hitec HS625MG servos and 2 JR Z590's for the Ailerons, all controlled by a JR 7202 synthesized radio.
Swinging a 14X10 prop is a Saito 100, putting out right around 2hp.
