Builder / Pilot
When the package arrived I noticed things rolling around in the box, however there was no damage. Overall quality was excellent. Material was HQ ply and balsa and was very well constructed and strong. The model was a beauty right out of the box, and took about 20 hours to assemble and setup. I used HS5625's and DLE 20 ra was my choice for power and it is plenty. Also went with low bounce wheels. Maiden flight went well using low rates as recommended, however the CG needed to be adjusted. (see RCU thread) Plane was tail heavy. I moved battery forward and the second flight was much more fun. Looks great in the air. flies very stable and lands smooth as silk. This is my second Seagull Model.

Great Buy!
I have not finished putting the aircraft together yet, however, this is my second one and I have some observations. My first Yak 54 was modified from a four cycle glow (which worked fine) to an electric configuration with a Rimfire 120 and a 6S 5000mAh lipo. It flew just fine on this setup but a radio problem caused a significant crash. At the price Sig has for this beauty, it is much better to buy than rebuild. This Yak 54 looked to be much better built and covered than my original. Everything fits and it is a breeze to assemble. The instructions are very good and easy to follow. There is one thing to be careful of and that is the control horns on the elevator. The included horns are a bit weak with a thin horizontal stab and I would substitute more robust horns (I did). I don't think you can fine a better model for sport and acrobatics for the money than this one.
