SU-47 FFF Profile Propjet

Wind died just enough to give this plane a try today. Prototype 1 maiden video here:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=462307

GWS350 on 2s powered (like my F-16XL and F-14), at least for now. Prototype 1 has served its purpose now, and will be decommissioned.. Needed to add .8oz to nose to get it to balance a little better, and I found that the control surfaces were way too small (as I suspected). Plans will be revised and a new prototype built before too long.. It won't be scale in the rear areas due to the mods I need to make, but I'm sure it will be close enough for my taste. Once I get it to fly reliably, I'll post the plans here..

Pics are of prototype 1 SU-47 and prototype 1 F-18

Looks good so far, needs wing spar to get rid of the bow.

Cool!

I'm so busy with midterm exams in school + wrestling practice I dont even get a chance to build by second F-14, and now su-47. I got all the materials needed, I am also thinking of putting a c/f spar along the fuselage because nose is a weak spot when you crash and I crash a lot.

So when the exams are over i hope ill get a lot done.

Su-47 looks great, thanks glovesave! It's one of my favorite jets along with F-14 and some others.

Hi MustangAce17

I'll post the plans once I get some more of the kinks worked out. Usually that is about a three prototype process, and I'm now on prototype 2 of this bird. The reason why I do this is because I want to give builders a better than average chance of success. It has to fly reliably before I release it. You should have seen the very first toss of this plane - it went almost straight up! That's how I figured out to add the .8oz of weight on the nose. They're will be other tweaks to the design, but not as radical as this first round. Hang in there..it'll be up here before you know it.
