Is this the yak I flew at Bolivar?

One blank and one with flames OR if you could do a red biohazard symbol that would be sweet.

The 25" yak may give new definition to "yard bird" at my house. As in "Front yard aircraft bird".

You flew the 35.5" Sbach...

However, right after the 25" planes get wrapped up the 35"s are next. Look for a yak and sbach in both sizes to start.

second pic down, green w/ black stripes.

The pic on this page are number 3 & 4... hot off the press. This is what the scheme will be, although colors are not yet decided, and a few option will be available. McDDD said orange and blue so were given that a try. Bolivar got wet too soon, so if they get decent review at NKC I will toss them on the LRC site.

After cutting a pile of PBFs out for kitting I've ended up with three thick kits. Anyone interested in these?

They are around 6.75mm to 7.75mm thick. To balance I would expect them needing to run a 2oz motor, maybe something like a 600-750 3s. The minimum flight speed would of course end up being higher. These are hinged and will come with the usual hardware package. While being a little more robust in the air, they will also carry more weight into the ground. They will allow a guy to run slightly heavier electronics and balance.

Anyway, these and the rest of the 20 should be kit'd this weekend. I'll have them bagged for the ProBro events, ready to box and ship on monday. PM me or email to sam+lightrc+com if you want one of the heavier kits.

Ohh and the site should now accept orders for PBFs. If you see anything that does not appear correct please let me know.

Biohazard doesn't seem to work out well on the rudder. How does this look?

Jake,
Whenever you're ready for the kits place the order. The site should ask for the mailing addy, and give a place for remarks. Just put red biohazard top in the remarks. If you want probro on the bottom put that in too, along with the color.

Alright, need some input.

I've been painting flames for couple years now. You guys keep buying them, so I'm definatly not complaining. Just wondering if anyone has ideas for another scheme?

I like the racing stripe (2D Dave style), but not sure if it would sell. The biohazard Jake suggested took a couple events to sell. The target seems to be bad news for the pilot, instant hits on that plane. So far the Thunderbolt scheme seems to be next runner up to the flames. Is it possible that flames will never be outdone?

Of course the ultimate mini PBF color scheme is still Sponge Bob. :rockoncool:
