    CAN YOUR PLANE DO THIS?

    Land like this STOL plane? Yes, you can. Take a fighter(I used a F-22), make a strip the length of the wing and make it about 1 1/4" wide and get 3-4 re-enforced pieces shaped so that you can hotglue that to the underside of the wing. The only criteria is the leading edge of the re-enforced...

    LEADING EDGE VARIABLE FLAPS FOR FIGHTER PLANES (LEVF)

    Back in 2012, a video blew my mind to see the shorter takeoffs, sharper turns, high alpha approaches and slower landings for fighters. Started to explore how I could duplicate that and ended up with the transmitter mix initially. As time progressed over the years, learn to automate this with...

    Go crazy in control (fully stabilized SU-37)

    Hi there! I have a project in mind, which may well be some kind of overkill in terms of control surfaces and electronics, maybe even weight... It´s about building a SU-37 with all really build in control surfaces, fully movable of course: canards or even canardons, ailerons, elevator or elevons...
