Coming out of the former Soviet Union, the Sukhoi Su-26 is powered by a single radial reciprocating engine producing up to 430hp, mid-mounted straight wings and lightweight airframe make this maneuverable plane dominate the aerobatic World and European championships in the mid-2000's. An airshow favorite and regarded as one of the best aerobatic planes of all time.
Our latest almost ready to fly version of the Sukhoi Su-26 is built with traditional balsa and light ply construction and when combined with a powerful powertrain will give you a fantastic 3D and aerobatic machine. Professionally covered airframe and with a fiberglass color-matched cowl in a spectacular scheme will help with orientation and make you stand out from the crowd. When flying the Sukhoi you will be able to perform all the classic aerobatic stunts from big loops to hammerhead stalls, then when you pour on the power the Su-26 can make it look easy with all your 3D maneuvers from harriers to the more experienced rolling circles.
Become the aerobatic champion at your club with the 20cc 60 inch Sukhoi Su-26.

The plane is well made and is very very light. The structure really suits an electric setup. I went for the Turnigy Aerodrive 5055-430kv motor with the Plush 100 amp esc. The propeller is the Dynam 17 x 12 carbon and it gives unlimited vertical. The battery is 6S 5000mA NanoTech that balances well. The control surfaces are huge and response is quick. The kit lacked wheels and a manual, I put the C of G just in front of the spar.The workmanship on this airplane is really really nice.Right now i am locating the mortise cuts for the control horns to be placed.The Zlinn 50L has a similar set up.Both are really nice ARFs.I plan on useing the NGH 17 gas in the Sukio or an RCGF 15 gas in my new Zlinn 50L i have not made up my mind yet?Further to my first post. The answer to my question is that this plane takes two elevator servos, so there is no joiner.
BTW all of the hardware is high quality.
CheersTook delivery just now. Not double boxed but the box is super strong, so no damage. No instructions whatsoever, so only for experienced builders. Only thing I'm trying to figure out is how the elevator halves are joined/connected. There is no metal joiner that inserts into each of the two halves. There is a solid piece of ply about 150mm long by 10mmx5mm, so maybe that is what was intended to be used. I think I will go electric, I would have thought a 20cc petrol engine would be too much for this and make it way to nose heavy
