Mini Votec 322 and Yak 54

 

 

Yak 54

These two great little aerobats are the newest in the Foamy Factory lineup.  Built from 3mm depron, they are very light and ideal for indoor flying.  Equipped with a CD ROM motor or one of the newer small brushless outrunners, they are capable of extreme 3D flight.  Both the Votec 322 and Yak 54 are incredible performers! 

Flying these little aerobats is a blast!  Both are capable of extreme 3D maneuvers and absolutely excel in the indoor aerobatic regime.  Outdoor flight is great also in light or no wind situations.

 

Specifications:

32" Votec 322 and Yak 54

Ws   32"
Wt   6.0-7.0 oz
Area   245 sq. in.

Battery   2s Apogee 830ma LiPo

 

 

Don’t take our word for it, here is what Bill Martins of Dundee, Oregon had to say about the prototype Mini Yak 54… 

“Maiden flight on the Foamy Factory 32" YAK 54 beta this morning!  Outstanding!

mtr - AZFAI single stator cd rom
prop - GWS 8 x 4.3
esc - CC 10
rec - GWS 4ch pico
bat - iRate 2S 830 lipos
servos - one cirrus 4.4 (ail), one hs 55 (el),one futaba 3108 (rud)
AUW - 6-3/4 oz

Took off and immediately went into a hover for several seconds and then the hover turned into a KE and I had too much rudder and did a KE loop! ha ha so cool! KE requires very little rudder.  Tight snaps, I mean I thought the prop would eat the rudder!  Hover, harrier, walls, inverted flight with little elev. input, rolling circle(as well as I can do one) tight roll rate and nice axial rolls. Really tight loops, outside and inside.   

Everything set at nuetral and no trim adjust needed.  CG set at 3-1/4" back from LE.
14 plus minutes on iRate 2S 830 lipos.

 I have a new favorite plane!

Thank you Tim, you have done it again!”

Extra 300 – 3D Aerobatic Park Flyer

The Extra 300 3D parkflyer is the newest addition to the Foamy factory lineup.  We have taken the lessons learned from previous designs and incorporated them into this great flying foamy and the results are absolutely spectacular!  The New Extra 300 has been called the "Perfect Foamy Airplane" by those who have flown it.  The Extra 300 is a pleasure to fly.  Very little coupling, if any, results in outstanding performance along all axis.  Knife edge with this puppy is a dream!  The generous wing area and the "X" fuselage stiffeners add up to incredibly slow and stable high alpha flight.  Walls and Waterfalls have to be seen to be believed. 

 

The huge aileron area results in positive control at all airspeeds and incredible roll control.  If you are looking for a foamy that can do it all, look no further, this is one special aerobat!  Constructed from fan fold foam or 6mm Depron, building couldn’t be easier.  A couple of evenings of work is all it takes to get this little 3D gem in the air.  The flat plate wings and profile "X braced" fuselage provide both simplicity and performance that rival some much larger planes.  If you are looking for a fun, small area 3D machine, the Extra 300 is your ticket to a thrilling ride!  The stock recommended GWS EPS300/350C with 6.6:1 gearing, 12x6 prop and an 8 cell KAN 650 NiMh pack is plenty for all 3D and hovering maneuvers on the 36" version.  However, a brushless setup with Lipoly cells is the ultimate power system for ballistic punchouts and monster power to weight ratios.  To top it all off, the Extra 300 plan set comes with plans for three versions of the airplane.  36", 40" and 44" wingspan versions for indoor, and big impressive outdoor electric 3D.

Here is what Josh Glavin has to say about the new Foamy Factory Extra 300!

"It does every 3d maneuver and precision maneuver flawlessly. great rolling circles, harrier rolls, hovers easily, harriers very easy, very very little coupling in the knife, so little it's almost zero. Perfect pop-up's, crazy blenders, the coolest FLAT spins, upright and inverted, point rolls and rolls really crisp, snaps great.

Many may notice how planes tend to yaw on the bottom of a knife edge loop and almost snap out. This one just keeps on trucking with a zero coupling loop, in about a 15 foot space.

I've done knifedge pinwheels that loop in about 3-5 feet.  IMO a perfect design. It 3D's better than our 40% aerobatic planes.

Yak 54 – 3D Aerobatic Park Flyer

The Yak 54 is a very smooth flyer that can be taken from mild to wild and back again in an instant.  With it’s generous fuselage area, knife edge is a dream and transition is as smooth as silk.  Hovering stability is solid and thanks it’s large ailerons, torque rolls are completely controllable.  If you are looking for a 3D park flying machine, the Foamy Factory Yak 54 is it!  High alpha, Blenders, Snaps, Waterfalls, Harriers, Elevators and more are well within the capabilities of the Yak 54.

 

Constructed from fan fold foam or 6mm Depron, construction couldn’t be easier.  One or two evenings of work is all it takes to get this little 3D gem in the air.  The flat plate wings and profile fuselage provide both simplicity and performance that rival some much larger planes.  If you are looking for a fun, small area 3D machine, the Yak 54 is your ticket to a thrilling ride!  The stock recommended GWS EPS300/350C with 6.6:1 gearing, 12x6 prop and an 8 cell KAN 650 NiMh pack is plenty for all 3D and hovering maneuvers.  However, a brushless setup with Lipoly cells is the ultimate power system for ballistic punchouts and monster power to weight ratios.

3DX – 3D Aerobatic Park Flyer 

Do you want wild park flyer or indoor 3D aerobatics?  The 3DX delivers all the thrills of much larger models in a small, lightweight package.  The ultra low weight and inexpensive Depron or Fan Fold Foam construction of the 3DX add up to an airplane that can do it all.  You can practice and perfect those maneuvers you would never dream of doing with a more expensive model, and you can do it all in your front yard.  The recommended stock power system, GWS EPS350C DS (6.6:1 gearing) and a GWS 12x6 prop, will allow hovering at half throttle with more than enough power to get you out of those “tricky” situations.  Hovering, Waterfalls, Blenders, climbing spins, knife-edge and more are all possible with the 3DX.  Put a brushless motor up front such as a Razor or Himax, and now you have a ballistic 3D machine!
