FRCFoamies SU37 MK1
Click here for plans

This is just something I'm doing as a side project(for the time being) f1 said to me I should try a su37,so i did! Just finished dry assembly ,part of its glued together, but underneath is yet to be finished. I need to route the electronics before finishing off. It's 32"x 48,ill be running two 2700kv motors on 6x4, should put out 70+ oz of thrust. One motor is mounted, the other will be on tomorrow! Can't wait to get this in the air, just wanted to share a few pics!

Nice and that is your design? I have always wanted to try the elevon mounted motors. I think 2 400zooms would do the trick. but only 62 oz of thrust. maybe the 370zoom on a migv1?
Cuz tooling around is just not my style of flying. Full stick and full travel control surfaces.

love the 3d noses on your designs... man I gotta lot of catchin up to do with all these builds..and I'm going to go broke with all the donating to you...cuz I dont believe that its even close to fair to pay for the RCPowers plans and not your since your seem to be just as good as theirs....and everywhere i fly this Alpha jet. It gets so many weird questions as well as compliments... Hats off to you Jay

well you have an awesome 3d nose that you( and maybe F1) designed.....at it looks easy to fill with a little spackle and sand smoth. I love that about your designs

Nope, BJ, Jay does all the designing. I only helped him test the eurofighter because I had foam and an edf. But the su37 has always been my favorite and since Scott said he would not be reworking his prototype I figured-heck, i bet Jay could do it! And it looks like he did! Btw guys, the Eurofighter flew great today at the fly in even in high winds! And Chip is now a new owner of the alpha jet! Everyone flew it and thought it was an amazing plane-so unique!

looks nice, but I think this from bobdabildoh55 look more slim, like the real su27 family.
anyway, the motors on elevons will be a blast
good luck!

I hear what you saying, bobs is a real nice looking plane, but his nose is not pointing down like the real one. His nose top is level with the wings, it should be slightly lower. But still a great design!

Wow that looks awesome!
just one thing. you are probably going to need high rates for gliding though.

Why would I need high rates for gliding?

The motor installation looks good... It needs to resist lot of force maybe some plywood would be necessary
Make lot of static test before the mayden flight at full deflection. ( thrust multiply by distance to hinge)
it has two servo for each elevons or is my impression ? Can you give us more details?
