Nice maiden romihensem, any maiden your plane survives is a good one! It didn't look toooo slow, the speed even looked scale in places. And the shakey hands is just from the adrenalin we all love.

Good job on the maiden and the video. You need to clear those spectators off the runway so you can land

I'm sorry that the retracts didn't work out for you. They looked really cool.

Color scheme and paint job looks good to me!

Also, I've been shaking so bad when flying a new plane that my eyes start twitching! Your hands didn't look bad at all

hmmm

hey thanx guys for yr encouraging words. of course my flight would not have been possible if not for all of yr encouraging builds and steve's wonderful plans.

@steve, thats wat i thought too. moving the main gear forward will help to ease the takeoff but i discover it will also limit my pitch angle to the very minimum so as to clear the prop from hitting the ground. so i had decided to place it as forward as possible while still giving me some clearance for the prop during takeoff in case of sudden pitch up moment.

@waltjg, i'm planning to get a new set of servoless retracts to try on my next su37 build. just notice my lhs has brought it in and its available now. but its only for the main gears so i still need the current nose gear retracts but at least it cuts the number of servos down.

@jmsr, thanx bro. i also actually prefer that speed but i feel it doesnt have ebough reserve power cause i feel like i'm on max throttle which i normally use bout 2/3 throttle on same setup with my previous planes.

@cmala, yup, next time i need to make sure the excited spectators make some room for me. hehehe btw can i confirmed whether its u who make the scheme? i kinda stumble across this scheme but cant remember on which page its on. sometimes when my adrenalin pumps up during maiden, my eyes get teary just by concentrating on the plane so much to avoid crashes. lol

Haha, not yet. It took me a long time shaping to be happy with the shape. And then I realised I should really glass the top half so I could sort the cockpit and install the elevons without having to do patches of glass, so that took a bit of time as well. I'm back into installing running gear now, and the underside will be finished soon after. I'll post some pics when I get home from work today. Although, because everything is white it's a little hard to see the work gone into it.

I've got a spit roast party to go to on Sat night up north so I might not be flying Sunday morn. Had alot of busy weekends lately so I may still flag the spit and come for a fly. Will certainly be there Sat morn if it's clear and calm, no maiden though.

This is the livery I'm thinking of using, it's based on the C.O.B.R.A faction from G.I.JOE. A nice bit of nostalgia from my childhood. If I do go ahead with it the underside will be mostly white to keep visual oreintation from being a problem.

120% Shumate Su-37 EDF

I've modified Steve Shumate's (jetset44) S.U.-37 plans to allow for twin 64mm edfs. Currently the plane has the following specs:

wingspan: 35.5"
edf: 2x 64mm EDFs
motor: 2x 3500KV
ESC: 2x 45Amp
Battery: 4S 3300 mAh 35C (actually with this power setup the current draw is 63Amps, so at 3300mA a 20C is fine)
Servos: ail (2), elv (2), rud (2) thrust vector (3 servos, yaw, pitch, roll on 2 TV nozzles)
Nozzles from Hobby-Lobby Su-34 (you can buy 2 plus a servo for $20)

Here are some pictures:

Battery - 4S 3300mAh 35C
wingspan - 35"
edf - 2x 64mm EDFs
motor - 2x 3500KV
ESC - 2x 45Amp
AUW - 53oz

I got the paint scheme started. I like Ace Combat's Yellow 13 paint scheme. it also seems to be a popular one here. Not an exact match to the actual scheme but you get the point. I will be adding missiles, panel lines, insignia and weathering to complete the model.
