    Well after great success with our first F-15 design (got to number 2 on parkjets) Greg and i have decided to give the F-15 the MK2 treatment! The SU-37 MK2 is the perfect size for a small power setup right up to the amazing NTM 2700kv motor. With a 26" wingspan it give's a wide option of power setups, easy to transport and still have a 3d fuselage to hide all your electronics. So not making a F-15 MK2 would be a silly thing to do!
    So far we are very happy with the changes we have made, its slightly longer than the original but keeping the same 26" wingspan. The engine nacelles have been made to look more scale along with the canopy and general fuselage. Here are a few pictures of the sketchup prototype and me and Greg will be building the first prototype together when i arrive in the USA next month. Hope you all like the modifications we have made!

    lengh 40"
    width 26"
    weight 16oz - 20oz (still to be confirmed)

    Awesome! Good thing I just pulled the trigger on another box of depron...I can see the fall and winter will be an even busier build season this year...:)

    Great job, Jay and Greg.

    Cheers,

    Scott

    My contribution to this design was the green canopy, haha! Really a nice piece of work, Jay. The MK2 treatments really do the trick. Gives a builder 2 options: MK1: Easy build hat still looks ans flies great, or MK2: a more scale build that looks and flies even better! Can't wait to start building when you arrive!

  8. yes very good looking but I think the side view of the fuse looks a little fat. maybe it just me but I think it should have a skinnyer look

    Blah blah blah... There's always a critic in the bunch! Btw, the elevons are in the scale position like you asked for on the mk 1. Did you ever build the mk 1? You are not allowed to criticize until you build it BJ! ;-)
    Truth be told, I didn't even contribute the canopy color.

  10. by mk1 do you mean the original version of this f-15? and I didnt mean it was bad just the drawing looks too fat. Greg you and I both know that each jet looks different once built... As for the Critic. yes I can and have worked on F15 for over 4 yrs so this one is MY bird

    Hey! AsSoulsDream. Why not make the fuselage thinner with 3mm Depron and wrapping paper ;) It Makes the plane stronger and you will keep the same weight as 6mm depron with some paint on.

  14. O and I can promise you I will build this smaller one. I never built the bigger one do to not being able to fit it in my truck. I agree with the 3mm and paper thing and I'm sure it will look great Jay. All I meant was the side view pic made it look Fat. Sorry if anyone took it as I didnt like it. It looks great and Just because its a FRC Foamies plane we all know it will be F-ing awesome

    Jay and I discussed this the other day. The added length adds pitch stability and lift since the fuselage on the f15 contributes to lift quite a bit, as we saw in that famous video of the safe landing of the f15 minus most of a wing. So that length should make bit even more flexible as far as power systems go.
