    Thanks Lysle. I like that black on red scheme . Simple but eye catching. It's such a fun plane to fly.

    Can you Suggest a web site where I can purchase Depron foam for my new SU-35?? I just downloaded the Plans from RC Powers and I'm rather new at building this plane from Scratch, so I do want to start with the correct material......thank you for your reply....Ron

    I built mine out of Model Plane Foam. MPF is considerably cheaper than Depron.

    Isn’t this a great flying little plane!

    I like the all terrain take offs and landings and it otherwise handles nice enough in the air.

    I’m surprised more people aren’t building and flying this thing because it is a real hoot!

    Most fun I’ve had flying in awhile.

    Yeah man, it's one of my favorites also. It's a real floater and I love doing touch and goes off the grass. One of Dave's finest IMO.

    “Real floater”?

    You pegged it Flyte!

    This thing glides forever!

    It’s a Swiss Army Knife of a plane. Water, mud, grass, snow, doesn’t matter, this little guy can handle it on take off and landing.

    There’s enough ground clearance for 3-blade Master Airscrew Prop which is what mine is configured with.

    It doesn’t need a huge powerful motor either for good flight performance. Just a stock/standard 2200KV Turnigy motor and you’re good to go!

    Can’t say enough good things about this little plane.

    If anyone hasn’t built one yet you need to give this little Dawg a run!

  16. For the white Depron that dimension sounds right, the grey is larger. I have both but memory fails me of what they measure at. ;)

    Wild,

    They want $135 bucks for a case of 27” x 39”

    I have thought about buying a box of it but ya know, MPF is working just fine for now.

    Besides, I need to spend more money on,... AMMO! :)
