Attention E-flite Carbon-Z Yak 54 Owners (EFL10075 & EFL10080)
Some customers have reported the motor mount included within the Carbon-Z Yak 54 may prematurely crack due to excessive vibration, specifically in instances where propellers used are not properly balanced. To help address these reports, Horizon Hobby has upgraded the motor mount to provide improved stability.
Please follow the instructions below to request an upgraded motor mount replacement.
If you would like an updated propeller for your Shockwave 26 Brushless please review and follow the instructions below.
Please Note: Due to the high RPMs of this aircraft it is extremely important the propeller's blades as well as the propeller's hub are balanced properly. Failure to use a balanced propeller will result in premature fatigue and possible failure of the aircraft components. Please click HERE for more detailed instructions on how to properly balance your propeller.
We apologize for this inconvenience. Horizon disclaims all liability and warranties for any consumer failing to act upon this product bulletin.
A full range DSM2/DSMX compatible aircraft transmitter (with programming capabilities highly recommended)
The Carbon-Z™ Yak 54 is a quantum leap in unlimited aircraft design that uses patent pending Carbon-Z construction. Carbon-Z is as strong and light as wood and gives the Yak 54 the kind of rigidity that allows it to fly with the energy and precision of a larger scale model. The brainchild of world aerobatic champion, Quique Somenzini, it comes out of the box equipped with a customized high-output brushless power system and digital high-speed servos. The combination of these high-performance components with the light weight and superb rigidity of the Carbon-Z airframe result in a 3D airplane with a 2:1 thrust-to-weight ratio that knows no limits.
Best of all, you can have this Bind-N-Fly® version flying in as little time as it takes to charge its battery and bind the receiver to a full-range DSM2/DSMX aircraft transmitter. To get the most from the Carbon-Z Yak 54, a programmable DSM2/DSMX aircraft transmitter with dual rates and exponential function is recommended.
