The Su-47 program is developing the next-generation air superiority fighter for
the Russian Air Force to counter emerging worldwide threats. It is designed to
penetrate enemy airspace and achieve a first-look, first-kill capability
against multiple targets. The Su-47 is characterized by a low-observable,
highly maneuverable airframe; advanced integrated avionics; and aerodynamic
performance allowing supersonic cruise without afterburner.
This Su-47 holds the same beautiful lines as the original fighter jet. The wing
and body used in this jet are specially designed to allow high G maneuvers, yet
the wing loading is still very low. It becomes a stable aircraft with excellent
I'm a foamie freak, I love all the new foamie jets coming out, I get them
all, and this one is my current favorite.
It's fast, maybe 70mph, has plenty of power, and makes a really cool twin
sound. The foam is very tough, and CA safe.
It's very stable, in spite of the forward-swept wings. It's very very
maneuverable, you need to watch out, it reacts really fast. The roll rate
is unbeleiveable, fastest I have ever seen.
Takeoffs are about 75 feet off pavement, or you can hand launch it easily.
Flight times are maybe 6 minutes.
I'd stay away from the version that includes the radio, as it really helps
to have a good computer radio with expo and dual rates.
The CG is set at the factory, you can't go wrong that way. But you need
to watch out, the plane is very agile and might surprise you on the first
takeoff. It's not for beginning pilots, but it turns in a really
sparkling performance for more experienced guys.
It only takes an hour or so to put together. Contact cement is included,
but five minute epoxy works better and faster. Be sure to secure all
screws and connectors with CA or locktite, and make sure you have no slop
in your control system.
Anyway...I cannot say enough nice things about this plane. I have about
fifteen flights with not a scratch on it, the sound and shape are
fantastic in the air, and the performance good enough to keep me
interested and excited.
