Hey all,
Im quite keen to get a chunkier/bigger foamie than my yak, and wondering which of these 2 would be a better bet, the Telink SU-29, or Hobbyking Yak55 epp.

I like the look of the SU-29, and is a reasonable price at wattsup, but if I go by there reccomended setup, in regards to motor, esc, servos etc, it works out to be a rather expensive foamie!

The SU-29 looks real floaty, and I just want to be able to do all the things I do with my yak, but with a bigger machine!

Quite keen to hear thoughts on the yak55 to though, because even with shipping, its about $100 less than the SU-29.

What succesful setups have people got on either of these planes, and is there a good hobbyking setup I could use on the SU-29?

I came across this combo, that would make things easy for me, so I didnt have to choose what motor, prop etc....

Also, another odd question, where does the battery go on the SU-29??? on the yak55, theres a slot ready cut for it. Ideally Id like to use my 2200mah batts from my 450 heli, but dont mind buying smaller batts if needed.

I have both of these planes and would not recommend either which is not going to help you. They are similar style, both OK but not fantastic. The ido Sukhoi is slightly bigger but I like how the yak flys, seems to be lighter in the air. Is the ido $100 better. Probably not. The HK yak is noticeably lower quality in term of build but again flight performance does not seem affected.

On another note I flew the 3d blaster bipe in the weekend and thought it flew really well.

The SU is a great flyer. The Yak55 is 100gm heavier and motor mount is weaker (maybe 2 ply instead of 3 or 4 on the Telink) - seriously, once you get the hang of the su, it good to go. It's bigger recall than something like the parkmaster, and capable of some big air type stuff, but gets down... check out the vids... ok, Ido and Daniel H make them look amazing, but it does show it's a good airframe. Prob agree with 3dMikey, not as floaty as the parkmaster, but it is meant to imitate a balsa for accurately. It does that, but still feels pretty light to me.

PS - the Wattsup version is removeable wing.. so a little modding required to get it to fixed wing. Simple hollow carbon tube to join the wings carbon is all that's required.

For Value for money, you can't beat that Yak... well liked around the world it seems.

If you can handle a little bigger, the skywing MXS is where it's at for large foamies

My SU29 is in the bin outside in pieces. It was a little beaten when I got it and on the maiden the nose/engine mount and body parted way. Did some serious surgery and rebuilt, got a couple of flights, caught the prop on quick landing and lost mount again. Think there was just too much glue. It flew ok. I prefer my flappyyak but the SU-29 was good in that is could deal with a little wind.

Any recommendations for a replacement? Not opposed to getting another SU-29. See Telink also have Yak, Slick and Biplane. Less tempted by biplane as I already have running gear from SU-29 but would be interested in any comments.

Just my 2 cents

I have the first version, 3 years old now, and the best flying foamy I have ever had !! Has served my very well as a 3D model and even takes on glider tow duties sometimes

Hi Speedfreak, thanks for the tip, I have seen may people rating these on forums, definitely on the hit list. Looks like it is after a 60g motor. Kinda hoping to reuse the 95g scorpion 3008 that came from the SU29. Think that extra weight (10% RTF) would perhaps blunt the performance even if getting COG didn't turn out to be too big an issue.

Hi Rick, thanks for your post, reckon it would deal with the slightly heavier engine?
