I keep telling myself that, but it's not working. . I'm trying to make it better than the first one, but I'm running out of patients.

I finished sanding last night. Maiden flight was today. Got in three good flights. I still have some tweaking to do, but she flies well...right about 100mph.

Time for painting. I'll try not to take four months for that as I did with the construction, shaping and sanding.

Hi all, I'm getting set to order one of these incredible beasts but I just have something I need to clear up before the final decision. Am I right in saying my Futaba 6EX radio can be used like so:-

2 servo + y lead = left TV + left Elevon = 1 Ch
2 servo + y lead = right TV + right Elevon = 1 Ch
1 servo = right/left rudder = 1 Ch
throttle = 1 Ch

This seems like a good way to get the most from a limited Tx. It'll be tricky setting every thing in sync, but I'm not worried about this as I had to do it, to lesser extent, for my 3mm coroplast 6mmflyrc Mig29 which flies amazing. I'll be losing the throttle driven yaw control but that's ok.

Can anyone tell me of any pitfalls I'm not seeing or suggest better arrangements. Advice will be welcome. I started looking through the thread for the best answers, but lets face it well over 100 pages of posts is alot to read!

Successful maiden of my 120% SU-37


Hi Guys,

here is the maiden flight of my 120% SU-37.
I quite agree with wilmracer, my maidens are also very gentle and I try to check out the normal flight behavior before I start with aerobatics.
During this flight TV was disabled. Starting the SU-37 was unspectacular. Despite an AUW of about 1350g she had enough power. Most of the time she flow at about half throttle or less.
The sun was shining brightly but it was a little bit breezy and so there was no second chance to make another flight this morning.

I'm very happy with my Suzi and want to thank Steve for that fantastic construction.

Bye,
Torsten

I hope that makes since.
Colleague, hi! I can not find on Ukraine " Water-Based Poly Urethane Minwax "(WBPU). The managers of trade ask: " Where this product " will be used. On packaging there is an instruction. If it is possible, report, that there is written. A thank

Usually it is used as a clear finish for hardwood floors or other stained wood items when you want to protect the finish of the wood but not change the color of the wood.

Just make sure it's water-based. If you try to use an oil-base, you'll likely end up with a pile of melted foam. If you are unsure about it, make sure you test it before you use it on your newly-built plane.

In Germany I also can't get WBPU Minwax. Instead Aqua Clou L10 is often used.
Here you can see what it's like.

No reply here for my previous post, or from 6mmflyrc for quotes and power gear questions. This plane is looking like a dead duck as buying the foam in NZ to cut everything by hand is about the same price as the full kit so not cost effective. I'll give it a few more days then move on. Great shame, I was very excited.

Hi JMSR,

if you have a look at the construction guide, you will find several hints to mechanically link the TV system to the stabilators and eliminate the need for separate stabilator servos. Using Y cables should also be possible but not necessary.
Steves guide says all you have to know. Especially try to position the rc equipment as far forward as possible.

Bye
Torsten
