Detailed Unboxing Of The E-flite Su-30 Twin 70mm EDF Jet (12 min 3 sec)

Here are the review notes for this Sukhoi EDF Jet:

Pros:

- The assembly was straight forward
- Teardown will be easy at the field for easy transport
- The paint job is really nice
- The air brake is a really cool scale touch
- Bright lights
- Nice retracts with good suspension

Cons:
- The little antennas already added on. For those of us trying to transport it in smaller cars, those are going to cause headaches
- The tail piece should have come magnetic out of the box like the nose cone for easier transport.
- The elevator on one side moved easier than the other.

This is my maiden flight in rain with the E-flite F-15 Eagle 64mm EDF Jet.

E-flite F-15 Eagle 64mm EDF Jet With AS3X & SAFE Select Maiden Flight (3 min 24 sec)

This are my maiden flight settings for this plane:

- Ailerons: Rates: 70% & Expo 30%
- Elevator: Rates: 100% Expo 30%
- Nose Wheel: Rates: 100% Expo 40%

Review Notes for this Beginner EDF Jet:

Pros:
- The paint scheme is nice and colorful making it somewhat easy to see in the dark sky, but not as good as a red.
- It comes BNF Basic with very little setup required
- It is a RC Smart Jet thanks to optional SAFE Select
- Flies great on popular 4S 1800ís. Some say it will fly on smaller & larger packs work just fine too.

Cons:
- You have to glue it
- Poor turning radius as seen when I hit the nose on the curb
- No rudders
