Got this one from HK for $215, airframe only - but with complete metal landing gear, some servos (gear door) and a simple gear door sequencer.

Had no use for the junk fans, junk outrunner motors and escs that the pnp version comes with for an extra $150

The original Sukhoi Su-35 has a wingspan of ~ 15.3 meters and a length of ~ 21.9 meters,

whereas the model has a wingspan of 108 cm and a length of 163 cm, which gives as an approximate scale ~ 13.8 : 1 .

Some but not all Su-35's have thrust vectoring ... the Su-37 variant does as well.

The original is not a slow floater jet ... Top speed is ~ 2400 km/h or Mach 1.94

Will be repainted in a different camo scheme, similar to the one shown below.

Power will be from twin WeMoTec MiniFan EVO 70mm or a comparable 10-bl setup, with either a HET 2w, Arc or Mad Thrust, or similar , quality in runner motor on 6S.

A proven setup very similar to what I have in my Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut :
