You have put way too much time in this baby and it needs to stay intact for the one or two times tides are low and you actually fly
Well perhaps, but I did this for years and she flew great, I'll investigate further

ITTD Batt Bay Mod 2014


After seeing few of the great posts on the batt cage mods in this thread, I needed to do one also, but for different reason: On my 2 x 4s in parallel 'experiment' my 2 3700s were 4mm too wide for tray, so I cut out the foam, found alum. angle stock in my shop and cut and bent to match batt bay, the weight of each piece is 23g, 46g total + epoxy (5g?), took 30 minutes, looks cool--here is my procedure:

looks like a well done model, too bad they didnt add shock struts though and gear doors! FW hasnt made any changes to the Su35 in what -
5 years. or more!? any v2 SHOULD have rotating mains with gear doors, not just a 12B fan...maybe Nav lights

US tries to copy Su35, this is what they got


Check it out- the US Navy tried to duplicate the Su35 into a carrier based
aircraft , this is what they got, a ship that doesn't do any of its intended missions
like the F35! $2 Billion wasted so far, hmmm both made by Lockheed

Yes!! They need to consult with Dr. ITTD for the required mods. I think they probably have somehow!

This is nice but don't forget the weakest link is at the neck - and above the nose gear. Somehow get these areas connected to ensure you are spreading the stresses and not having an area concentrated.

So people running spars forward thru nose gear bay? That would be pretty easy- maybe a 4mm carbon rod-
I have a few spares for my Pterosaur wings

See below pics from mine - I think others have done the same. I like to use wood plates if possible before carbon since carbon affects radio signals sometimes....

They tried the same acquisition approach as the *F-35*, not copy the Su-35. And the LCAs was never meant to be a carrier, but a shallow water craft. That's where the word "littoral" comes in.
