Default A Joy To Fly

Just took her for an inaugural spin on the instant action free flight. Had an absolute ball! Was able to land and take off in a field like a bush plane. You can fly low and slow through towns and almost match the speed of traffic. Made an emergency landing on a road with power lines and just started cruising around taxing through town. Very stable for aerobatics and stalls. Perfect plane for when you are burned out on radar, ecm, bvr, etc. Just stick and rudder.

Absolutely, even more so if you are lucky enough to have VR and have a passion for flight. It's pure absolute unadulterated flying fun... brilliant!

This is exactly what I bought the Yak-52 for, and I agree that it's a real blast to just fly around & enjoy some raw stick & rudder piloting

Very Pleased. Flies straight as a string with minimal fuss.

Nice to not have to program a brazillion buttons just to go fly.
