Thumbs up SU-37 Profile

Here's a quickie on my just completed BP Hobbies profile SU-37. (It keeps me busy in the rainy season) I ordered the SU37, F15 and ducted fan Funjet as I'm not as good cutting the smooth lines compared to a machine.

Anyways it was a bargain for the price and a very fast build. The kits are very simple and go together super fast and the instructions are adequate. I made a few changes and only used 2 servos instead of the called for 3. Plans call for the elevator to have its own servo but I nixed the idea and made it work on 2. I used a spare GWS 350 brushed motor direct drive with a 4x4 prop and think this will make around 7 ounces of thrust so it wont be a speed demon by any means but still fun.

AUW is 7.3 ounces with a TP-1320 2 call battery so should have some fair flight time. Colored tape was used to make it look nice and keep the weight down instead of paint because of the brushed motor. I plan to use this as a testbed before I try the F15 that will more than likely have a brushless. Hopefully some flight testing and video can be done this week if all goes well.

Stay tuned for more to come !!!

Correct Dave on elevons, I have seen a few others use this setup and it worked out nice.

Default Video Brrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!

So it was darn cold but I couldn't let the sun go to waste today and it was killing me to not test it. Remember this is only a GWS 350 so theres not a lot of power on tap. Flies ok for that motor but needs more power for sure. Rolls were very fast and I found no real surprises flying it.

The sound cuts out half way through the video but your not missing anything really. Sorry dailup guys, I tried a smaller version but you couldn't see the plane so it was scrapped.

That was neat, I was curious to see how those elevons were going to work. Have you considered that brushless bp-8y motor ($15)....or bigger?

Sounded like a screamer !

Nice model, but the best way to show off would be to make an su47, the one with forward swept wings (couldn't use elavons though). again, good job. sounds like WWII bomb siren

Thanks guys, Heres the problem. The biggest prop that will fit is about a 4.5" so Im limited on motors for sure. Was thinking of a inrunner but a direct drive prop would be too noisy to use at the park. The F-15 version will be brushless for sure but have'nt decided if it will be prop or EDF powered yet.

There was no editing at all and you didnt loose the plane once so very nice work. All I did was convert it and add some titles so thanks.
