    Thank you Scott I can't take credit for the idea I did tweak it a little to what I need to accomplish but if it helps some people here it's the least I can do. I have learned so much for you and a lot of others in this forum. Everyone is so helpful here.

    Last night i fiberglassed the wing edges with light weight fiberglass. I also painted the canopy and sanded the rest of the plane. Now just need to paint it detail it and put the electronics in it. Fly it and crash it LOL

    My Dad and I finally got our planes in the air. They both flew great. My Dad has to repair his F15 because one of the elavons caught on the grass when it landed.

    Very nice builds razer. Do you have any video of them up? Great paint schemes on both of them.

    Beautiful job razer! Which one is yours? On this plane (and my FRC f18 prototype with flying elevons) where the elevons are kinda low, I let go of the stick just prior to touch down to keep them from catching. The alternative is to put elevons on the main wing plate like Jay did, but I feel better control in slow flying and high alpha when they are in the clean air under the wing. And they look good too! Great work!

    The SU-37 is mine and my Dad's is the F15. They both flue great. I needed to turn down the throws on my after the first flight. It was a little touchy but on the second flight it was perfect. It looks so good in the air with the 3d fuselage. It flys around with just 1/2 throttle and really screams at full power. I printed the SU-37 plans at 95%. The wing span is around 25 inchs. I only had DTF to build the plane out of that is why they are at 95%. I just have a 2212/6 2200kv motor on it with 3 servos. My dad's f-15 is 100% but has a F-27 Stryker motor in it swinging a 7X5. It moves pretty good to weighing 30oz.

    Thank you Greg. This was such a great plane to build. Than you to you too for offering these great plans. I can't wait to maiden it. Just may take a bit as my new addition to our family will be here on the 24th. I have been so limited with time.
