Actually landing on that road isn't that hard... I just screwed up...

ya that's a big clamp. Mine is a size up from the smallest, guess it's medium. Also taking off the arms help to lighten up camera side, but add a small clap or medium to opposite side helps. However I have very lil if any adverse affects with the wing cam.

Here are my last two flights with the SU-35. I was trying to get some good footage, but I didn't balance out the wings like I should have!! I don't really know what exactly happened and i don't know if I can fix her, but it sure looks like this airframe is toast... I HAVE to get another one... but I might have to be patient in getting it.
Dude I felt your pain, None- the- less it happens to us all, Now get back up in the air.

If i do brake the nose I would rather it just snap again than break further back, just my opinion.

1st flight since repairs & making sure she flys fine, landing was perfect!!!

I installed because my field i have to cut my approach short due to a traffic road. I will not fly over it. That being said the airbrake helps to slow me down do to that short decent to the runway. Yes it works, but also looks sweet. Actually if you go to my page when you click on my name, on the left is my Blog and at the bottom youll see AIRBRAKE. If you watch the video you get an idea of what I did.

Nice landing The dolly seems to work great!
I'm vacationing in Orlando and flew this morning at Southport Park, which has an L shaped area of rough asphalt where people fly. At first I took off and landed along the long part of the "L" area until the cross wind picked up. Then I decided to take off and land into the wind along the short part of the "L". The first attempt I make contact with some long weeds just before the asphalt as I attempted to make a low, short landing. The jet did not flip but I was surprised how the weeds took it down, thinking instead that it would simply brush over the weeds and keep going the short distance, about 15 feet, to the asphalt, but it did not. The nose cone came off and a nose gear door was damaged. I removed both doors and glued the nose cone back on and then went for another flight. This time after a few flat spins, an inverted and other fun stuff I landed successfully but nearly ran out of landing strip, turning hard to avoid running into the grass. I had a few more batteries but I stopped there at 4 packs and went back to the motel. I would rather wait till tomorrow early morning when there will probably be less wind, knowing how fragile the stock landing gear is. The nose gear door is repairable but I will have to return home for the part to repair it. The guys at the park were quite excited about my little ornithopter, which was the first thing I flew when I arrived there. Guess they had never seen one in action; they love the way it could glide along. It's a nice little show stopper, much like the SU-35, which got compliments also.

Just reviewing this thread; this looks like an interesting mod from TMSN:

Thought I'd post a note about a small mod I did. I was having trouble with the stock wheel coming apart due the the weak rim material, and also the axle buckling under the pressure and rubbing against the strut. You can observe that in some of my older photos. I went to my LHS looking for replacement wheel and found that the Parkzone P-47 LG set is a pretty good replacement. Same exact diameter and axle size, just a little bit thicker, a less bouncy material, and yet they look almost exactly the same as the stock ones. The kit comes with very sturdy struts. Here: http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...s-p-47-PKZ5303

I took out the stock axle and wheel, and cut the P-47's struts to a short L shape, and made a small flattened section for the grub screw to grab on to. It slides right into the hole in the stock SU-35's strut, and the wheel is secured with a simple collar. This material is *much* stronger than the stock axle, as are the P-47 wheels. Tried them today and they worked like a charm. My wheels are now perfectly straight and there's no buckling.
