FRCFOAMIES SU37 MK2!





Hey guys, so a few people have been making our normal SU37 but at the 80% scale. I myself have made it at that scale and love it so much that we decided to make it a model of its own at that size. There have been a few changes made to the plane to give a more scale look and a easier fit of the parts.
The first change we made was the canopy. It is a long canopy and getting it to fit on the 100% was a bit of a challenge, so we added a tab and notch at the front of the canopy and also added a canopy spacer to keep it at the right angles.

The second thing we changed was the nacelles, we rounded the and smoothed off the bottom for more of a scale look and to hopefully smooth out the landings with the front of the nacelle turned up slightly.

We also made changes to the tabs and slots to make the plane stronger in the rear as if you shrink down the full size plans you will run into issues. We enlarged the rudders and stretched the vertical stabilisers out to improve stability.

We hope to get the plans out soon (FREE) for download and we hope you like the changes we have made.

Cuz tooling around is just not my style of flying. Full stick and full travel control surfaces.

ok now that I look at it on my computer rather than my phone, I can see the bottom of the nacelles are turned up ever so slightly. I really like that change. I may even redo them on my 120% to save on the wear and tear of them on landings. The fact that this plane will be suited for the NTM 2700kv is going to be just Bleepin awesome!!! What is the degree of angle so I can transfer it to the 120% plz?

This is an example of how thorough Jay is with all the plans. Simply reducing to 80 % worked fine, but was not ideal so Jay polished the plans to make it work properly. This is one reason it is a pleasure working with him. We are working on a couple plans that will knock your socks off and the tweaking of the plans will not end until they meet Jay's standards! I'm not kidding! Haha!
