|What the Pro says!
The Art-Tech Su27 Twin 64mm is an Incredibly complete package.
Includes five minute epoxy, a screwdriver...EVERYTHING. Only 8AA batteries
are needed to complete it.
Construction takes about thirty minutes, and the instructions are excellent
and complete. Quality of construction is very good, no problems at all.
The decorations and paint job are exceptional, the plane is VERY colorful
In the air...takeoffs require about 75 feet. I don't think it will get off
grass, I would not even try it. It needs a smooth surface like pavement. I
don't think hand launching it over grass without the landing gear would be a
problem, but the bottom intakes are a little fragile, I worry about damaging
them on landing. The plane was designed to fly from a runway, so that's
where mine is staying.
Power is decent. In spite of some dumb posts on some interenet sites, it's
not a dog at all, it flies just fine on the provided power system. Top
speed is maybe 55mph, pretty typical for a ready to fly foamie jet. No
speed demon, but just fine. It will loop easily from level flight. The
roll rate is tremendous, you might want to tone it down. Landings are very,
very easy. All around, it's a very easy plane to fly, a good first jet.
The electronics included have all been fine, including the stock battery,
the charger included is great, the receiver is a dual conversion FM type,
the transmitter is decent quality.
Good value for the money, a very nice flyer, looks great in the air. I am
I also saw that some people said that the videos posted online of this plane
must have been doctored, that that could not have been a stock power system
in the video, etc...
Baloney. Mine flies just like that. It flies very well. Don't beleive all
the "experts" who post on the internet and say you have to modify this or
that...the plane is very well thought out and flies just fine right out of
You can upgrade it with more power if you like, no problem, but let nobody
say the designers did not do their homework, or that the plane cannot fly,
as somebody put a lot of time into this model, and it flies very well, and
it looks really great in the air, and it's very easy to fly.

Designed in the late 1960s as a high performance fighter with a fly-by-wire
control system, and with the ability to carry up to 10 AAMs, the highly
maneuverable Su-27 was one of the most opposing fighters ever built at the time.
The first 'Flanker-A' prototypes flew on May 20, 1977 and entered service as the
'Flanker-B' in 1984. The 'Flanker' has seen a number of aerodynamic changes
since, and exists in a variety of forms today. The Su-27IB, or Su-34
designation, is a long range attack variant with side-by-side seating for two.
The Su-27UB 'Flanker-C', or Su-30 designation, is a tandem two-seat long range
interceptor and trainer. A navalized version called the Su-27K 'Flanker-D',
designated Su-33, was designed in 1992 for deployment on Russian aircraft
carriers. It has folded wings, retractable flight refueling probe, arrester
hook, strengthened landing gear, and moving canard fore planes. Next generation
'Flanker' derivatives include the Su-35 and the thrust-vector controlled Su-37,
both vastly more enhanced then the Su-27, with canard fore planes and the
ability to carry up to 11 and 14 external stores, respectively.
