    Totally agree jimbosflyin. Sometimes, obstacles, constraints as well as challenges, are meant to make us even better Love the way you think.

    Hey brother Bimo, that Su-30 sure is sexy looking. All the Su's look a lot alike but I can see the difference in the shorter nose and extended forward part of the wing. It is a beaut. :)

    Thanks brother FlyteTime Yes, all SUs look alike to each other, that's how they share similar flight envelope. Still, I agree with you that there are some small differences between each. What I'm aiming with this future SU-30SM project is, I wanna experience the difference in handling the rear mounted pusher parkjet, compares to our common mid mounted ones. For sure, we lose the thrust vector, but I believe new experience awaits
    Oh man, you've just placed a tiny little block of thinking inside my brain, about having score-n-fold design with retractable landing gears, jimbosflyin But it ain't gonna be simple built anymore.

    I have also thought of them but didn't want the extra weight,I do have a nice stretch of unused road for a runway right in the middle of the field.I was goig to just put zip-tie landing gear on them which isn't that visable when in flite.:rolleyes:

    yeah, so true, jimbosflyin. We need to do the extra math between the wing loading and AUW. I may be too lazy to do that as well

    Maybe the HK Stinger 64 EDF landing gear as a possibility.

    It is possible blkbaron. In fact, I have landing gears salvaged from an F-18 64mm EDF plane with me. Another challenge is to have the rear mounted propeller protected when the plane is taking off from the ground

    Thanks for the kind suggestion blkbaron. I have put it into our list of future possibilities and challenges

  18. Landing and taking off on wheels is a nice change also rather then always thumping the foam. Time to dig out the skis and put them on Spitty, need to make some for the P40 too. ;)

    Yeah, the P-40 is on my build list for sure

    Seems like I need 36 hours a day instead of 24
