Skyline 70 Sukhoi SU-26

Introducing my completed build of my Skyline 70 Sukhoi SU-26 from General Hobby! I think she is my new favorite airplane. I have always been fond of the radial engine cowl and her simple Russian design. I have a feeling she will be a good flyer!

I am using the Skyline SBach 70 electronics from my crashed plane, but with a Spektrum AR7100 received. On 6S with a 17x8 APC nylon prop she produces 1180 watts, pulling only about 5 lbs! Hugely over powered, so I will need to be cautious.
