The EPP Crack Yak Mini is the highest performance 3D and extreme aerobatic small EPP plane on the market! The Mini evolved out of our quest for a small super high-performance plane that could be flown literally anywhere, in any space, yet improve on the over the top performance of the original Crack Yak. Through our extensive design and testing program over the last year we have honed in on the exact wing loading, power to weight ratio and developed the new air frame tweaks needed to excel in this smaller size. The result is going to be the most fun plane that you have ever had!
With the original Crack Yak I wanted to make a plane that wasn't your average floaty EPP 3D plane and really put together something that would be exciting to fly, precise, and very wild and crazy when you wanted it to be. In the design process for that plane we really learned a lot about what happens to air frame tweaks and designs when you scale them down reduce surface efficiency and increase wing loading while you do it. That "research" resulted in an air frame that maximized the effects of its wing loading and had airf rame features that functioned extremely well in an inefficient flat plate small plane world - Chris Jewett
With the Mini we capitalized and exaggerated those design features to make a small plane that will really perform! From the special design motor/esc combo to the trailing edge variable vortex generators every effort was made to create a very high performance, very small pocket rocket!

Excellent kit, easy to build. I added some low density EPP triangles to the tail to stabilize it. Without the triangles the extra inches in length (vs mini Pitts) make the tail a little twisty. I also put real wheels on it since I mostly fly gyms with carpet floors and outside.
The 3 day USPS delivery time turned into a 10. Just got it today! Good thing it was well packaged
The quality of this kit is really amazing. Everything is precisely cut and straight. All you have to do is to assamble it like a lego. I took my time and finished it in 2 evenings and enjoyed every second of the build. the manual is clear and easy to understand and there is a great build video on youtube. Shipping and packing was perfect too. I haven't maiden it yet but you can see in the official video what this plane can really do. Thanks
Awesome little airplane! Does anything you ask it to do. Flew it at our club for the first time on Saturday, and everyone who saw it, now wants one. Taking it to an indoor event tonight. Can't wait!
I was looking for a small 3-D plane that I could fly in a fairly restricted space in front of my house (a third of a basketball court), and this definitely does the trick! Well designed, precision crafted parts, easy build, and amazingly resistant to the occasional crashes that have already occurred. I have a fairly full hanger with planes of all sizes/types - this one fills a very unique niche in that it is essentially a great alternative to my flight simulator. Thank you, Twisted Hobbies!
I purchased this model last year and wanted just tell everyone what a great model this is. I am 87 years old and flown plenty of models through out my years. Twisted hobbys models are my go to for epp the other ones are junk and you can tell how crappy they are made! I am done I throw my last one away and will only by the good stuff.
