Well, Wind RC now has a Giant Su-34 ready to fly in their shop.
Twin engine and each one with 80Kg thrust. The plane was successfully tested in September of 2023. If we are going to fly this plane in the US, in some events, what shall we do and what do we need?

At that weight you would need to contact the Federal Aviation Administration and determine the current regulations for that size aircraft. Your plane is way too heavy to fall under AMA jurisdiction.

Really interesting project, though. Best of luck!
