daymmmm thats cheap... Id jump allover that if I didn't just drop 2 bills on a Heli this week.

Save it and fly in the springtime. Its such a sweet looking plane.... why not just leave it hanging from the ceiling? take the landing gear off and hang it. Plus it sounds awesome

ORIGINAL: bigjoe53

hey guys, how was everyones flight time this summer?
well just to let you guys know i never got to fly the plane it has just been sitting in my office right behind me and now i am going to sell it, so if any of you guys are interested let me know, make me a offer, the nose needs to be replaced and you need a new steering front wheel, unless you have spare parts. i bought the plane for $200 and i will let it go for $75, i am in ny so i can meet you half way if your far or i can just come straight to you. and i do going into CT on the weekends just incase anyone is up that way.
can you contact me on [email protected]

thanks

LDM, thanks, but nothanks, Ill stay away from GWS rubbish. Id rather NOT have to scratch build a plane either from balsa.

RTF and ARF and RXR, Id much rather just buy a plane that is built 90% and add my equipment or swap out stuff to make it fly good rather than have to do 30 hours of work on it just to make it look like a plane.

Sorry, I like to fly, not build

Bro , you missed it , GWS is one of the lines they carry did you not see the three icons for Sapac , Flymodels and the other high end jets ???
The sapacs offer typical high end detail in foam and some have glass fuse with balsa sheeted wings , if your hitting something wrong with the site google
sapac , or TRY -jet-tech ,

True , but jets were designed to fly fast . I watched so many videos that you either get a plane that struggles maintaining altitude or you get 3 to 4 mins of flight and your done .
Many of the turn key planes that you are seeing for $200 to $275 are not turn key .
Many of them have 1)no name servos that will fail on second or third flight 2)speed controllers that can handle the suggested or stock set up from the facttory so they burn up ,
retracts that are total cr... and need to be replaced 4)no name transmitters that simply dont work .
Trust me , I am not about spending the money , I am usually in the WW2 warbird forum bashing cheapy arfs into my rendition of a better scale plane .
My point is that many of these planes in stock form for under $300 total turn key are simply not a reality as far as fun factor and fun for long .

Default RE: SU-47 RTF EDF too good to be true?

LDM, I agree, As a helicopter guy, I have played with my fair share of Junk and also nice machines, and then some that are just too expensive that flying them makes me so nervious, it takes the "fun" out of it. If I can afford to crash it and replace it, Id rather be able to repair it. Saddly, JETS at 70 mph dont care much for sudden stops of anykind LOL....

I have 6 flights on my SU47 and while not perfect, it flies OK out of the box. All planes can always use a bit more power, but it gets to a point where there is too much power and not enough surface area and wingloading and all the other dynamics to take into account. The great equalizer in cheap and expensive, is that you still have to get them in the air to see how they handle.... and they all have that in common. Some my fave planes are cheap under 100.00 foamies and they are super fun. Some... yeah are complete crap, but with some good components lying around, they can easily be fixed to be good, and honestly, Id rather pay 100.00 for a GUANLI plane that is a basicly a GWS plane but is all but trimed, assembled, painted, and electronics swap-out ready versus just a block of foam and a bunch of balsa that needs to be put together anyday

I agree Dave , I have the E-flight Foamy P47 from Horiszon , all I can say is wow !!! , for $79 I added a brushless geared moter from himax and upgraded the speed control , only other mod was hollowing out the front area so my battery could be moved up and no weight was added for CG . THe plane is one of my best performing warbirds compared to my $1000 to $3000 fule burning babies !!!!

As far as jets , I planning on getting the $200 version of the F18 from Jet-tech on ebay , I know Rockey and i know he will deliver on time and no damage .Then I can add my parts on an -paycheck by paycheck basis as I get the extra fun money . First all H55 or H81 all around , then the motors then the speed controls ect . I will add a few carbon fiber rods ect and have a beatiful large jet for less then Banana hobbies and better flying .
Check out Jet -tech , he is releasing an swing wing F14 , really cool !!!!!

Hi! I am thinking of getting one of these, does anyone know what kind of foam it is? And can it be flown off a grass runway?

it is EPP foam. and it relaly can not be flown off of grass unless it is that of a putting green or super smooth fairway of a golf course. It is an inch and a half clearance at the nacelles @ the rear of the plane. Its strictly a pavement/ asphalt runner.

Default RE: SU-47 RTF EDF too good to be true?

Thanks for the quick reply our flying site is a active grass airfield so it should be fine. This would be my first EDF jet so having the durability of EPP is always a bonus in case of a bad landing. This jet is exactly what i have been looking for, strong, scale looking and its a model of one of my all time favourite planes. And thanks to the very good exchange rate between the US dollar and the Pound its extremaly cheap!
