RUSSIAN SU-27 FIGHTER RC JET (EVERYTHING in the BOX and READY to FLY): ESSENTIAL RC FLIGHT TEST
AVAILABLE HERE: http://bit.ly/su27pusherJet
This RC jet comes in a huge box mainly because the wings are already attached. The vertical stabilisers need to be attached and a hot glue gun is provided in the box for this purpose! Despite that we used UHU-POR foam glue as hot glue can be messy. The light strips are attached using tape and the red JST plug goes into the electronic speed controller (ESC). We preferred them on the leading edge of the wing. Attach the nose wheel using the provided allen key. Charge up the flight battery with the provided charger and you are ready to go!
Hand launch is easy BUT this jet is INCREDIBLY LOUD ! Initially we thought it might be because the propellor wasn’t balanced but we found that not to be the case. Swapping the prop for an APCe would probably give you better efficiency, performance and be quieter. In the air this jet is relatively easy to fly because of its stabilisation system which prevents you from rolling inverted. We could not switch this off even via the transmitter. High alpha flight is fun if you are flying in wind. This jet is made from EPO foam so if you should have a knock it is easy to fix.
At the time of review this RC jet model is priced at £153. Despite having everything you need to get flying in the box this is a higher price than we would expect. We hope the price comes down soon.
