40% Sukhois New Scheme

Recently Air Wild had a great offer on their 40% Sukhois that I couldn't refuse. So I called up my flying buddy (Randy Brown) and we decided to get 2 of them and save some money on shipping and they were cheaper if you bought 2. We both agreed that the stock schemes were not very appealing so I volunteered to recover both with matching schemes and Randy would paint cowls, wheel pants, & canopy to match. Once I got into it I decided to make mine different since I already had an Extra 300 in a similar scheme. I left the bottom of the planes alone except that mine has only 2 white stripes on the bottom of the wings and Randy's has 3. I left the white covering on the fuse sides and the small blue stripe. We also wanted the cockpits finished out a little so we added pilots (Hangar 9), instrument panels (Extreme Flight), and floors. We are both running DA 150's, mine on stock mufflers, Randy's on canisters, Emcotec power distribution, Fromeco batteries, & Hitec 5955's. Graphics are by Bad Brad and as always he did a great job, I got them super fast, and very affordable. So here you go.

Thanks,
John

I always knew there was a beautiful plane hiding beneath the Air Wild scheme.

Looks awesome!

Man that is sweet looking. I too did the same thing purchasing two of these a month ago with a friend. Pretty hard to believe the price. Have you flown it yet? If so let me know what you thought of it.

It sure is a pig, but I really like the way it looks. It's a you love it or hate it looking plane. What servo set up did you do for the rudder? And is there anything you'd change if you built it over? Strengthen anything? Change set up? Watching your video makes me excited for it. I don't really know what to expect out of it. If it flys half as good as my carden 330 I'll be extremely happy
