SU-27 shockflyer

This is my Sukhoi SU-27 shockflyer replica and it flies quite good! I made it of 3mm depron. It flies with 3s1p 350 mAH kokams. The real one (shocky ) flies with two cells. I like the extra power, but unfortunately I did not keep the weight below 100 grams. It was 103 grams without the paint and 105 with the paint and decals. I use a feigao brushless and a 3x2 prop. The only disadvantage is that if you try to fly really slow, there is little airflow over the wings, so it is hard to control, but hey it's a jet! I took some pictures and I'll try to post some videos. Did anyone buy the real shocky, just wondering how they like it.

Thanks for the attention guys,

I'll try to post something like plans. I took some photos like a 3-view, I've got no real plans. I might try to make some...by the way it looks like the Ikarus shocky, because I tried to make a replica. It has about the same dimensions. Maybe I'll try to get a better video today. I used a 2mm rond cf spar to stiffen the wing. Also look at the way the control surfaces move, the ailerons move together with the elevators. Oh...I may just legally post my own plans of the Sukhoi, right? I got some templates...I'll try to do something with that. Here are the 3-views:

They work quite well, it is very sensitive on it's ailerons. I still want to try to let the elevator have a bigger travel than the ailerons, I hope that the elevator-function will than be somewhat better. I also flew the plane with some wind, and it performed quite good. Unfortunately there is too much wind today .
