Tobias “Tigger” Gaus –
Time to write a review 😉
Once again Craig did a great job with the plans and the files for the SU-57 Felon.
I have build the Felon also for the “Russian Jet competition”.
The build itself was straight forward. The first steps needs some time as there is already some sanding needed, but the rest gets together really quick.
And like Barry I also had some troubles to find the correct CG. (part of beeing one of the firsts 😉 ). This was solved ….. Than it showed some instability during staight and level flight. I have solved this issue by enlarging the rudders. (updated in the plans)
Now the Felon is capable of flying a wide range: From “normal” Jet flying to “crazy” maneuvers (close loops; Cobras, flatspins….)
