    Wow--that setup produces around 1560 grams of thrust! Unless the weight of the Big Sukhoi doubles with the battery (not likely unless is comes out of your car!)* you should still have better than a 1:1 thrust-weight ratio. Booyeah, bring on the vertical! Get video for us, please.

    *(Zippy 1800mAh 3s < 180 grams--Zippy 2200mAh 3s < 265 grams**)

    **(They're light, I'm cheap, so sue me . . .)

    Zippy are very good but the 2200mha turnigy are 198 grms. Possibly why the zippy out- performs the Turnigy.

    I bought 2 zippy 2200 batteries in September of last year and have recently thrown them, would launch the plane and then it would slow down like the battery was flat, both batteries had a dead cell, yet i still have my original turnigy bricks which are almost 2 year old and still working fine.

    It handles great although my modifications were much more than just eliminating the canards. Check it out. SUX 30.jpg

    So it that a "bank-and-yank," i.e. elevator and ailerons, no rudder?
    Is it 100%? (It looks bigger, or is that just the lens?) How does is handle?
    Nice airplane--fly safely.

    Did you just bend the canards up?

    No,Instead of bending them up,I cut them off and remounted them.

    After watching Lars' active canards it looked as though they were pitched LE down for most of its flight, especially when pulling G. When I watched a full-scale flight demo of the Su-35, the canards were pitched in the same fashion. (Art imitating life, or life imitating art?)

    I was thinking of trying to fix them at an angle on my next canard build, but it's always better to have someone else try it out first. Then I can build on their experience and look smarter than I actually am . . . ;)

    So . . . let us know how it works, please, crypticink369. Fly safely.

    I think you will have to have a way of controlling the canards, the leading edge only goes down for high alfa and putting the nose down in level flight. Be careful with them I usually leave them fixed in a neutral position because I am lazy.

    Yes you can have them fixed at an LE angle of 5-15 degrees without any problems. A good starter before installing accelerometers and gyros.
