Five years after the infamous Yak-55 took the Soviet team to number one at the 1984 World Aerobatic Championship, the Yak-55M was unleashed, with a faster roll rate and shorter wing that challenged its rival Sukhoi SU-31. Those performance qualities carry over perfectly into Great Planes’s ARF version...hose versatility shows that Great Planes knows exactly what you want in a 50cc aerobatic/3D model.
