Default Flaps

We are flying mine with full flaps 5 cm down from fuse side of flap. In looking at videos some appear to be lowering flaps beyond this? I wonder if any issues blanking out tailerons?
thanks

I wouldn't not recommend going below 5cm. I feel that with full flaps it's really hard to maneuver the plane. So going more than 5cm would probably make more turbulences.
In the beginning (before i got used to the 5cm flaps), I use to deploy the flaps only on final because it was so hard - the plane just wouldn't turn.

We all use maximum flap angle SU-27 and 30, I don’t have a cm distance without checking, but it’s way more than 5cm-there is no blanking issue I have experienced in the SU-27 I have flown.

Is there a thread for the su-30 version of this or is it the same jet? Im curious if its the best choice still as we have a skymaster version and now an aerojet version. A dual turbine jet with thrust vectoring is my dream jet and its time to get one going!

Same thread. It’s a few mould differences with fixed canards. SU-27 vectors better…

Yes. The gear is high quality and very reliable. Here's a demo of the new electric gear:

If you need more reason to press the 'buy now' button... check out this video. The CARF SU27/30 is way more maneuverable than the other brand:
