    H9 3.1m Sukhoi SU-26MM

    Here is the setup I used:
    DA150
    RE3 exhaust
    Mejzlik 30x12 2 Blade carbon prop
    9- Hitec 7954sh servos
    SWB arms
    Spektrum AR9100 PowerSafe Rx
    2- Thunder Power 2 cell 3600 mah receiver packs
    1- Tech-Aero IBEC (ignition battery eliminator circuit)
    Radical RC custom servo extensions
    Spektrum Data logger

    Building:
    Plane came in 3 large (by large I mean huge) boxes. Everything was very well packaged and no damage upon arrival. I first took measurements of the airframe from servo pockets to the location I would be installing the Rx. From there I sent all my info to Radical RC for some custom length servo extensions.
    Next I started wing assembly, everything is hinged and control horns were installed, so it was only a matter of installing/programming the servos. I used 2 servos per wing panel with a "Y" harness in each to run into the Rx programmed with the Hitec servo programmer.
    Stabs was up next, this also went smooth, 1 servo per surface here. Next I moved to the fuse, installed the rudder and put the 2 push-pull rudder servos in the tail.
    From there I got the plane up on its gear and installed the motor and RE3 pipes, throttle servo and IBEC. The switch I used is simply a servo extension cut through the side of the fuse with a bind plug, pull the bind plug out, plane powers up....simple enough.
    Nothing major stands out that was an issue during the build.

    Flying:

    Hands down this plane is the best ARF I have ever flown, require a few clicks of trim to get it flying straight and level, very little mixing, a IMAC machine if there ever was one in the ARF category for sure. The power with the 150 and RE3 combo was very good, could have made it through the Unlimited sequences (if a better pilot was at the controls, LOL).

    Wishing to this day that I never had gotten rid of this one. It is missed every time I make it to the field.

    I have seen one of these planes fly many times at my club field. It flies really nice and is quite capable.

    This plane is why I wanted to build a su-26. Until I was educated about how a round fuse reacts in knife edge as well as post stall. Wing rocking scared me away from the one I was going to buy.
