Quite a while back I had bought a second FW Su-35 KIT with an aim to make it up for an 8S and 3000W+ setup. After badly damaging the first one I decided to get this underway and done ASAP. (this was a few months back now!)

The aim is to fly from GRASS.... have approx 4.0Kg AUW.... an 8S setup that can do 4000W on the bench, with 5.2kg total(!!), but who knows what amount for sure IN the plane.... and the main lenghened battery hatch/bay mod, with its strengthening gains, plus fibreglassing and a Flight Controller (Stabiliser).
But the least possible else than those things!

The first one was very good! And it is a very nicely designed and made plane - that flies great too! This one should be even BETTER!!

I finally gave in and got a "Twin"..... though I am not sure it was that great an idea....

Dynam make good 'cheap' planes, so I was confident this would also be in their typical style. And it is....
But as usual, as much as they have some great ideas and well thought out designs, there are things you can improve upon. Quite a few in this BF-110 as it turns out....

Another 'standard' of Dynam is the very average paint job they do. Very 'chalky' pastel colours, and the budget idea of painting the whole plane the underside colour (eg sky blue) and then ONLY adding the secondary Camo Scheme colour to the top where that goes.
But surprisingly, once this plane is coated in WBPU it dramatically transforms it into being a great paintjob finish!!
