Is it just me, or does the cockpit look too big? I am a huge Russian jet fan, building the CARF SU-27 right now, I LOVE the single seat version, stoked Aviation Jets is making it. Just looks a bit off to me. The SU is a huge jet. The cockpit looks small on it. Much bigger than an F-18 or Mig-29... This canopy profile reminds me of an F-18, not a Sukhoi....

That's beautiful! I love the Ukraine digital camo. What model is that? Scale/Size? Thanks

It is a FeiBao 1/9 model and althought I built it as light as possible and no additional ballast needed it ended up weighting 17.3kg dry with two vt80bl engines. By switching tail pipes to lighter ones and redesigning fuel system I think there could be 500g removed from the airframe but I do not know if its worth the extra cost..

Looks amazing! Will it come out the box like that or has it had extra work?

Steering looks a bit too complicated, hydraulic or pneumatic? Otherwise beats FeiBao scalewise easily.
But is this built light, as 2.7m Su-35 is pretty small cramped as interiors come and weight will be an issue. I know from experience now..

Steering is hydraulic not complicated at all. Dual steering pistons on a single servo operated cylinder. I've used this setup on many other large jets with no issues. Weight will be available ASAP (Its light) This is a twin only, prototype was flown on 2 K120's

Fuel quantity onboard and total flight time? Did I miss that previously? Nicely done if that’s how it comes out of the box.

I should have the info today, Some of the details are factory upgrades but yes, you can get it out of the box just like this. Amazing isn't it!

It is amazing. There’s been jet manufacturers around for years and they are still not even close to that level of detail. It’s very impressive. I very much look forward to seeing what they produce in future if this SU 35 is a sign of things to come!

Its gotta be lightly build to have a reasonable weight as it seems to have 4 servos thrust vector, 2 ailerons, 2 rudders, 2 stabs, 2 leading edge flaps etc. But I keep my fingers crossed that it will be what it promises, so I can someday get it! Too many projects running now to get another SU..

From some discussions it seems to be about 13.5 Kg empty (no electronic equipment, servos, turbines).
The plane include cockpit, landing gear, fuel tank, thrust vector, paint.
I look forward to the official specifications and the final price.
This SU 35 is very beautiful, I will definitely buy one.

If you meant to write "speed brake", the Su-35 doesn't have a dorsal speed brake as its predecessors did. http://www.ausairpower.net/APA-Su-35S-Flanker.html
