Lust Object of the Month
May's LOOTM is the Yakovlev Yak-55M. Lots of bang for the buck in this aircraft. For the price of a Pitts, you get an airplane that is capable of Advanced and Unlimited aerobatics. And, of course, you get the stout Russian airframe durability matched with the awesome Vedenyev nine-cylinder radial engine.
The Yak-55 is able to maneuver very tightly, so keeping the plane in the box or before the crowd is easy. There's also an evolution, the SP-55M, with composite components and even more performance.
Enjoy the May LOOTM--the Yak-55.
