Thanks for the info, GG, I have seen that thread, but what I was looking for was a demonstration of actually carving the foam. I'm especially interested in how some people, like Steve, are able to carve that one chunk of foam into a nice shape and still have nice base that blends into the fuse. I know there is a bit of talent involved, but it helps a lot to see it done. I'll probibly end up going with the plastic canopies from 6mmflyrc, but I'd like to be able to make a nice canopy out of foam.

Steve's Su-37

First of all, GREAT APPRECIATION on the works carried out. I do know how much of work is involved in Steve's effort not only to have the drawings draw via. CAD then transfer to PDF with various scale as required by many, then tile them, then work out the detail info on each piece, show photograph on step building (which DocRob) has detailed out even more-THANKS Doc .-) then identify the most suitable power plant and it's works.Thank You Steve & Doc no one has done this as far as I know.
It's guys like you who make this world a better place to be in.(being unselfish)

Regards,

Thanks, new wing man.

In reply to your PM, my Su-37 is exactly 100% scale of Steve's original design, at a 30 in. wingspan. Yes, it does look a lot bigger than Tom Nelson's Flanker.

new wing man - Thanks for the kind words! I'm happy to share my work with the folks here on RCGroups, and I enjoy hearing from all the guys who have built from my plans. Plus many of these same folks have been equally generous sharing their work and knowledge!

Larry - I have a hunch that it is the motor mounts causing those weird things on your model. Both because of the inherent play in the mechanism changing the thrust line and because of the complex interplay between the aerodynamic controls and the thrust vectoring controls. Keep practicing and I bet you'll get the hang of that latter one.

We are ready to go. For those of you wondering if there is a lot of cutting on this bird, I can tell you yes. This design is by far consumes the most foam, it's taking about 3.5 big sheets with a good layout.

We will take orders today, shipping on the 23rd. As always, hardware for the dual TV system, clear canopy, laser cut depron, etc. The usual.

Again, its been said a million times, but one more is in order. A big thanks to Steve for putting this one together and a personal thanks for all the support you offer us day in and day out. Thanks!

Su-37

Yes Gentleman,

I've started mine, it's a lot of work trying to build on your own. Just cutting out the paper template by it self will take a least 2 days (with breaks), i can imagine how many days it's going to take for the template.

So for those of you who have not started i'd say just get it from Steve and move on to enjoy flying.

So this is the same size as Steve's original plans? I think I saw some talk somewhere on your site at one point, about the kit form being made smaller.

I'll need to let CBflyguy give the authoritative word here, but last I talked to them they were going to produce Su-37 kits in two sizes--the original 30" span version (works great with twin LSPJ motors) and a scaled down 26" span version (works great with a single LSPJ motor). Those two options should cover most folk's needs, since either can be built as a single or a twin.

Yes, we plan on offering a 26" wing version as well. That may be about 15-30 days out. We have to adjust the plans a bit, get the new canopy made, etc...
