I think I gave you Andy's email? He's not committing to anything at the moment until he's produced the first couple for our two aircraft and then once he knows everything fits properly etc, I think he'll be offering them in some form or another

Hi, yes it's SLA printing. below pictures of the seat he just received!




These parts will come from Ciné-scale: site Ciné-scale
You can see on his site what kind of finishing can be done.
SU cockpit is not in, but he can provide SU27 or SU 30 full cockpit (with or without LCD front panels).

below an example of A10 finished panels..

Ok people who have already flown it. It says 35mm on flaps for take off and "35-50mm for landing or as much as you can get". I can get almost 90 degrees... Whats a good starting point for full flaps? And are the 40mm ailerons and 50 mm elevators a good start?? I've had some absolute debacles following manufacturers suggestions so would love a first hand opinion!

DrScoles, I haven’t been around the Sukhoi since you asked but I do know I set it up and it was maidened on the CARF recommended settings, just not sure if the owner changed any of them since. With regard to flaps I’m sure I just went to 50mm. But if I get around the plane assembled soon I’ll get the actual throws.

Got my gear in and it looks like Andy has finished up the cockpits. Still have a lot of jobs to do but I'm around a bit more this coming week so hopefully can get it finished up. Really like the gear and the cockpit looks awesome!

Got mine wrapped up and just waiting on the CAA processing the paperwork so I can start the test flights.

The cockpit worked out nicely Forgot to take any pics of it all together when I did the engine runs etc but will do when I fly it. The only issue I'm running in to is the gear seems to keep needing adjustment as it wears in. Hopefully it'll all settle down soon enough after some flights - it just seems to sag a fair bit and alter where the wheels fit when retracted.

Hey Roy, can you give me email to the guy who did panels... I sent him money quite a while ago, forgot who it was!

Andrew, cockpit looks amazing! Will your friend do a turnkey cockpit? I do not want to paint stuff!

Thanks

Thanks for the pics Dave. Had a few ups and downs but got 5 flights and some decent working out It really does fly very well indeed and will be even better once I get the CG shifted back.

Looks awesome Andrew! How are the electric gear working for you? I still haven’t been able to get landing gear from CARF.
