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!

Sorry for the delay in replying, new wing man , sucks when professional and personal lives merge.

The flight characteristics of this plane are exactly as Steve described earlier. Without TV, the plane handles like a pussycat - it's nice and stately in the air, very gentle to handle, nice slow turns and loops. Rolls, on the other hand, are best left alone until you kick in your TV.

With TV on, it's a joy to fly, simply because it suddenly becomes capable of so much more. It won't do anything you don't want it to do - but the flight envelope immediately increases tenfold. It's a treat to watch it do tumbling loops and tighter rolls. I haven't set up yaw TV like Steve has, but I'm sure that makes for some crazy flying as well.

So, no adjustments are necessary to Steve's flawless setup and recommendations.

I haven't experienced the kind of power that Steve did in his early flights. I feel that's because he's got the hotter wind LSPJs (early lot) than I do. I might go with the SPJ's on this one when they come out. This baby deserves them

I've been quiet on this thread, partly because of professional committments, and partly because I've stripped my Su-37 to rewire it (see previous posts) and to paint it. Mine is now primered and I've applied the base coat of flat gray. I'm still cutting out the masks for the camo I've decided to use.

I can see this one taking a while before taking to the skies again

You need to retire Doc so you can model fulltime.

Construction guide now available!

Attached below is a link to an illustrated construction guide for the Su-37 park jet. This guide is based on the one I developed for the 6mmflyrc kit, but has been customized to show the slightly different build procedures for the scratch build version relative to the kit version. This is a 4.5 MB PDF file. Enjoy!

Hi Steve,

Thanks so much for the construction guide, I've posted it to the Parkjets website also. My last "Official" act while still down in Florida. I'll be leaving in about a week for the "Great White North" 6 months away from home feels like a jail sentence LOL

Take care, and best wishes to you and yours!!!
Tom

Thanks a ton, Tom! I thought about including a sentence in my post asking you to do that, but somehow I knew you'd see it and do it right away without me asking. You're nothing if not dependable!

At least the Great White North won't be so white this time of year!

Glad you like it! I really appreciate the thought, but there's really no need to go to that much effort to send me a Depron Fund contribution. I only posted my Paypal info for those that are especially inclined AND for whom it's convenient. If it's not convenient (no PayPal and/or outside the U.S.), a simple thank you is plenty! My biggest reward is seeing the photos and hearing the stories of those that build it.

thanks Steve,

Since I've posted the SU-37 You've had over 110 Unique view's per day average. That's on Par for what your F-14 gets a Very popular Jet to be sure I'll be looking forward to posting your video's too

One of the nice things about traveling back up north by myself will be that I can make a few extra stops along the way. Places like www.rcfoam.com outside of Atlanta Ga where I'm going to pick up a case or two of the big sheets of Depron (they also carry 9mm foam sheets now that are perfect for bulkheads) and I won't have to pay for shipping (although the way the gas prices are now it may not make that much of a difference LOL)

I'm also planning on visiting Randy from www.dynamoelectrics.com in Illinois to see what he has squirlled away in his closet I need some PHX-25 ESC's to run my Jet Screamer/XF Fan's combo's as the TB-18's didn't want to work. Then I'll spend a day or two with my daughter and grandson in Indy, and finally head on home.

I'll be building one of your F-22's this summer and Beanie's B-1 Bomber (EDF) for the Las Vegas Fly-in in November, which would be really cool if you could attend, BTW

Gotta get back to packing, my Dad has over 400 NASCAR Diecast cars, and there taking forever to box up

If you happen to get a video of the SU-37 shot, please drop me a E-mail with a link so I can upload it to Parkjets. I won't be getting any up-dates from RCG after 24 hours of inactivity.

Tom

Sounds like a fun road trip, Tom! Depron is so light it shouldn't affect your fuel mileage too much... I do want to try to make Vegas this year it at all possible. And I will send you an email once I have some Su-37 flight video.
