Congrats on the maiden simonslim. Nothing better than a bit of fine tuning between flights.

THE KIT HAS ARRIVED!!! Safe and sound from half way around the world. And its as beautiful as it is big! You can see precision all over this kit. Here are the generic box/kit pics.

Thanks JMSR, see your going for the full TV set-up, nice.
I have just tuned mine up today, going from 350 watts to 525 watts so it should be a bit more spirited.

Yeah, I can't deny the gyroscopic stability of 2 counter rotating props. I'm only going to be using 2 servos with Tailerons mechanically linked to TV. No yaw either. I've got a GWS P-38 with no Yaw or rudder and it flies sweet. Sure it'll call for a bit more precision and mechanical tuning to get it right, but I prefer that over digital tweaking. Plus the lack of all this means a lighter plane for glassing. Good luck with the 525W!

Well the new motor has been a success. It has given the plane a bit more top end speed and a new sound too, it has a bit of a whistling howl to it now.
I'll try a get some vid in the next day or two.

Giantcod is very good, are you using an 8inch prop by any chance?

I am using a 9x7.5 pulling 525watts at 51amps. I'll get a vid up on you-tube soon.

Hi all,

I hope you don't mind an oddball question thrown in here ??

I recently bought bannistators old fleet (he has built new), including the SU-37 which I love. I have already had a mishap on landing & pulled both stick mounts out of the back & with it being a well used model, i don't think sticks are going to be strong enough.

Could I get away with mounting solid panels to cover the open holes in the tail & mount the motors on these ?

Presumably having a "tube" then creates a big air dam, so was thinking of blocking the front edge with depron.

Will this create too much lift on the nose ?

Silly idea ??

thanks for any advice

I've heard of people blocking the intakes on Steves F-14. The result as I remember was it helped keep the nose up in turns.
