The classic lines and proven capability of the SU-26 combine to make it one of the most popular aerobatic models, the Hobbyking Sukhoi certainly looks the part and make no mistake, 3D flying is what this superb model is all about!
The quality of this SU-26 is simply as good as it gets, the airframe has been constructed to keep the flying weight minimal but strong enough to take the punishment of extreme aerobatics, the superb quality covering has been expertly applied and for the final touch, the cowl, canopy and wheel pants are finished in a deep gloss paint. The supplied hardware is simply top notch, with ball-linked control rods & pull/pull rudder assembly, lightweight control horns, Carbon Fiber Under-carriage and wing tube, etc, this is one of those models that will be a real pleasure to assemble.
The H-King Sukhoi SU-26 performs every inch as good as it looks, naturaly it makes for a great sport plane but it would be fair to say that hardcore 3D is what the SU-26 has been designed for. The precision of the airframe, stunning looks, top line quality and amazing feather weight specs make the SU-26 a must have plane for all aerobatic and 3D pilots!
Features: Classic looks Top quality construction and covering Easy and fast to build Ultra light weight but strong airframe Superbly applied, high quality covering CF Landing Gear Ball link piano wire control rods & pull/pull rudder Stunning 3D capability Quick field assembly, easy to transport
I need a bit of help with the pull pull system for the rudder. The manual is no help since it shows the old solution for mounting the control horns. The provided hardware doesn't make sense to me. I solved the problem by reverting back to the old way mounting two control horns. That said, I was looking at another model and it has the same hardware which I would like to learn how to use.
Also, I ended up going through the control arm issues of length and strength required to get enough throw for the rudder system. I could not find an arm that was compatible with Hitec and ended up fabricating my own. There must be a better way like providing the carbon arm that can be used to extend a standard one.
I love the overall build and quality of this aircraft. It is a shame that the thought does not extend to some better photos of the new plane with its new type of hardware. Even a generic set of building instructions applicable to all the new balsa/ply models would go a long way towards helping modelers have a great 'flying' experience. Thx
I bought one of these Sukhois a little while back and am generally impressed with the value and quality. I've flown it a few times now and it flies really well.
The negatives are that the undercarriage breaks off easily and the UC mount is hard to strengthen so I modified it so that the UC is now rubber mounted and can knock-off if need be. Also I had to replace the wheels as I found them too small for the grass at our club field.
I am happy to recommend this model though.
hey Sebastian I had the same problem, but those are clips to secure the extension's for servo connector. if you are using the servo connector for elevator, rudder or aileron to extend the servo's then you can secure those by using the black plasctic cap just push the connector in to this hope this helps
this motor seems to be generating only 275 W of power with prop 9x5 - 25.2A - 1310g. The thrust is 1.3KG. The power looks too low for this 3D plane. I would not use this motor on this plane. Atleast 400W of power is good for this plane. Use the 35-42 motot that comes as a combo. I have ordered the same. Hope this helps
For those who own this model can you confirm if the wings are removable, looking at the picture i cant really tell. Also how is the performance on 3s 2200 mah battery. Any recommended servos or people are just using any 12g high torque servo . I think a 14x7 prop with 60a would be good with 35-48 motor
The wings look to be removable to me as you can see what looks like a carbon wing tube and holes to bolt on the wings from inside the fuselage. Won't know for sure until someone actually buys this though? I might...
Sukhoi did not have the horizontal tailplane and wing on the same plane.
Sukhoi nã*o possui a empenagem horizontal e a asa no mesmo plano .
Look for Sukhoi company at google and see the civilian aviation to see how a Sukhoi 26-29-31 has the elevator above the wing plane .
yes the full size sukhois have the wing mounted lower on the fuselage but, having it mid mounted is definitely better for rc aerobatics. also if u follow the trim u can see that the elevator is indeed mounted above the wing plane
lol.. i,m getting good at building em cause i seem to meet the ground, unplanned, often . i could buy it but if i do i,m sure the wife will shoot me as i got 18 already..this art is more addicting than socom or call of duty.my latest is p-40 funfighter with 2836-2700 kv . omfg its unreal. c u .thx 4 helping us out online. bye
hi . i bought the yellow edge 540 . built it straight , measured axis good , elevator rises equally , seems good but, even on low rates ,plane throws itself left violently with minimal elevator input. had a overpowered fighter do that 20 yrs ago .it died quick , now this .,, balanced good but unflyable. any ideas please ?
huh? if u close your eyes for EVERY plane, car, motorcycle etc, it will crash!! try it if u dont believe me. just keep your eyes closed no matter what, until u hear the bang. lol. even a boat eventually will wash up on a shore somewhere
ferozall: I spent time on the flight sim but also set your plane rate to dual setting. Take off in high rates then go to low. Get 3 mistakes high and flip to high rates do some basic stuff recover then back to low rates and relax. Then next time around do something else, relax go around again and so on. The best way is if you can be at the field yourself.
sorry ep i was meaning %60 potential of what planes can prob perform or handle,not setting my brain don,t react fast nuff lol im too spending more time on d sim and less on planes(espescially now i found HK)waitin on my new edge to arrive,talk about a kid a xmas,
earlier post was given the old ###### i too was saying yes a stol or similar would be great slow low and for a long time yea cool,refered to copulation and they sensord me!every1 does it(if they lucky)
u should always fly with a buddy. if something goes wrong, u will have an extra set of eyes to help u if u lose orientation or somebody to call 911 if u crash it into ur face! if u just dumb thumb it and crash, u will have a laughing spectator that will be grateful for the entertainment and they might even buy u a beer afterwards
nice looking plane but I am getting over run with 3D planes from HK. The average pilot out there will use this plane to about 60% of what it could do. Time HK put as much effort into balsa war birds, also more twin planes would be great
new scale would be nice as well. Twin would be great. Like I said before the majority of the regular flyers fly 3D. I don't even look anymore when they are flying. Now a real nice plane making a slow low pass I would watch. The retracts on HK planes has to be beefed up so they can take hard grass landings. That is why I don't own a HK plane with retracks but am looking at a Hanger 9 Corsair with retracts. I would rather pay more knowing it won't fall apart than save a few bucks.
izvinjavm mail to the error, I'm interested percent for my country can not be explicitly sent over two pounds and the aircraft, 2.6 kg heavier, they would hobbyking was kind enough to share it somehow even if the three parcels and sent to me, I'd really like to buy this plane because my favorite model.unaprijed grateful to Mark
1 thumbs up!
I have bought this plane , at first I was very pleased with the looks when it arrived but I was disappointed with the quality of the balsa used, the balsa in the aileron rib broke while building the plane so had to fix it with Epoxy. However you will be pleased with the covering work it is definitely very good.
The battery area is not big, there is very limited space inside. It feels very congested.
I had bought the Digital HK 933 servos which were not good. So I changed the rudder and elevator servos to the D-MG16 and also added the CF extra long arms. However you will need to enlarge the Elevator servo bay if you want to use anything more than a 12gm servo. The Servo bay's are a perfect fit for only for 12gm servo. I would recommend using a better quality servo. It is a very light plane. My setup is
2 D-MG16 Rudder and elevator with Extension arms.
2 D MG HK 933 for ailerons with extra long arms from PA katana MD
Motor :- NTM 35-42
Battery :- 3S 2200 ( Gives me about 3 to 3.5 min of flying time)
The recommended CG in the manual is fine. Please be aware of the CF joiner on the elevator. Make sure the Elevator aligns properly with the Stab, in my case even though the elevator joiner was properly placed it still caused about 4 degree of misalignment. Which is still ok as it fly's fine.
As usual I had epoxied the motor mount and used fiber glass cloth from HK to cover and m

looks nice. very good linkages, nice covered.
I notice in contrast to the Sukhoi Sebart other Enginedome, required engine for back assembly Rowing up to the outside face drawn, but less rudder area Cockpit (Access Door) is shorter
Wait times as it flies.............

Le poids de vol annoncé de 1200gr me semble très difficile a atteindre.
J'ai monté un moteur de 140 gr entrainé par une lipo 4 s 2200 ma/h de 233 gr via un controleur de 52 gr. J'arrive au total a 1390 gr.
