So you have always wanted to fly a warbird - but just have too much
respect for their challenging take-off and landing characteristics?
Well those times are over! With the YAK-11, Staufenbiel is bringing a
ready-to-fly warbird trainer to the market and in doing so, making the
handling of military aircrafts quick and easy to learn. Buckle up and
experience the fascinating world of the warbirds.
The Yakovlev Yak-11 was constructed in 1944 by Alexander Yakovlev,
specifically for the advanced flight training of fighter pilots. At
that time, Yaklovlev was able to pull from his experience with the
extremely successful single-seat fighter series, the Yak-1, 7, 9 and 3,
and apply the advantages of these aircrafts to the Yak 1. Finally, he
combined all of that with a radial engine.
The two-seat aircraft was used by all member states in the Warsaw Pact
as well as in the Middle East, Austria and China. The wingspan of this
military machine, which was primarily manufactured in Czechoslovakia,
came to 9.4 meters and it was propelled through the air by an
air-cooled 7 cylinder radial motor with 700 hp.
With the reproduction of the YAK-11, Staufenbiel is bringing a scale
model to the market that impresses with its detailed construction and
powerful, true-to-original flight performance.
Developed by Stefan Wurm
The YAK-11 prototype was developed by the famous airshow pilot, Stefan
Wurm. After countless test flights, Stefan Wurm and the development
team from Staufenbiel were able to optimize the model and make it a
deserving member of this successful series.
Light and Stable
This model is constructed out of EPO hard foam material, which is not
only very light but also incredibly robust. Minor damages can be
quickly and easily repaired with superglue.
A high powered brushless motor is built into Staufenbiel’s
YAK-11. The motor consists of a KV 410 external rotor motor and a
Hobbywing 80A regulator with an 5A UBEC and it is powered by a 6S
battery. In combination with an APC propeller this model boasts a
powerful flight and a noteworthy climbing performance. As a result this
model still remains stable in the air.
Landing Gear Fit For
This military trainer has pre-installed and very robust electronic
landing gear with proportions true to scale. Thanks to the 80mm sponge
rubber wheels, not only does the YAK-11 perform well on hard runways
but also on grass surfaces during take-offs and landings. On the
ground, the aircraft can be maneuvered into the correct position with
its movable tail wheel.
Large Split Flaps
In order to reduce the approach speed for landing, the YAK-11 has
pre-fitted and installed split flaps that enable highly controlled
Authentic Visual Design
This model offers numerous scale details and exact proportions. In
addition it has visually authentic rivets and panel lines, mock exhaust
pipes and a painted pilot figurine. However it is not only the
appearance of the model but also the flight performance, with the
characteristic Yaklovlev wing geometry, that makes the the model a
smaller yet in all other ways equal counterpart to the original.
Through the built-in electronics and the high degree of prefabrication,
this model aircraft can be assembled in less than 30 minutes.
