FMS have been committed to the development and production of propeller aircraft for many years and they have never stopped enhancing their products. Utilizing many of the new concepts from their propeller aircraft, FMS are upgrading and adding new and exciting Electric Ducted Fan models to the line-up of aircraft.
First in line for improvement is the Yak130, which features a new and improved 70mm fan unit for superior performance. The craftsmanship that has gone into this model began with the initial concept prototype, after which refinements were determined and implemented bringing to you the most accurately defined Yak on the current market.
Some of the improvements and redesign include a plastic leading edge on the air inlet duct, providing a smooth flow of air into the duct while protecting the inlet from any possible damage from a less than perfect landing. Everything has been finely detailed from the panel lines, cockpit interiors, scaled pilot to the removable drop fuel tank. Assembly time has been redesigned to make the time in getting ready for flight even quicker and easier. There is a main spar tube that runs through the fuselage and wings to help strengthen the airframe which is then fastened with screws. The surface control horns and wires are preinstalled and utilize a ball link design which results in very accurate flight control.
The overall performance has been a major consideration for the Yak, and using the latest 12-blade 70mm ducted fan with the Predator 2860-KV1850 motor and 70 AMP ESC has resulted in greater power and speed with a 6S battery, the added bonus to this power system is the new 12 blade ducted fan, you can hear the power that it provides. The landing gear retract units use a 3.5mm strut wire for support and strength for those less than perfect landings, all the servos are pre-mounted and are a digital design, making precise manoeuvres possible whether in high or low speed flight.

This product has a rating of
Fabulous product, quiet EDF set up can be flown anywhere, huge power allows scale flights, slow speed with flaps is great. Ideal for learning about flying jets. This is not a light weight foamie, it flies with authority, can be flown in a wind. Narrow gear means you should only take off into wind, do not use flaps for take-off, only landing. Flight time with a 3300 6s pack is around 4 minutes
