|What the Pro says!
The Art-Tech Su27 is an Incredibly complete package. Includes a
simulator disk, a cable to connect the included TX to your computer, five
minute epoxy, a screwdriver...EVERYTHING. Only 8AA batteries are needed to
Construction takes about thirty minutes, and the instructions are excellent
and complete. Quality of construction is very good, no problems at all.
The decorations and paint job are exceptional, the plane is VERY colorful
In the air...takeoffs require about 75 feet. I don't think it will get off
grass, I would not even try it. It needs a smooth surface like pavement. I
don't think hand launching it over grass without the landing gear would be a
problem, but the bottom intakes are a little fragile, I worry about damaging
them on landing. The plane was designed to fly from a runway, so that's
where mine is staying.
Power is decent. In spite of some dumb posts on some interenet sites, it's
not a dog at all, it flies just fine on the provided power system. Top
speed is maybe 55mph, pretty typical for a ready to fly foamie jet. No
speed demon, but just fine. It will loop easily from level flight. The
roll rate is tremendous, you might want to tone it down. Landings are very,
very easy. All around, it's a very easy plane to fly, a good first jet.
The electronics included have all been fine, including the stock battery,
the charger included is great, the receiver is a dual conversion FM type,
the transmitter is decent quality.
Good value for the money, a very nice flyer, looks great in the air. I am
I also saw that some people said that the videos posted online of this plane
must have been doctored, that that could not have been a stock power system
in the video, etc...
Baloney. Mine flies just like that. It flies very well. Don't beleive all
the "experts" who post on the internet and say you have to modify this or
that...the plane is very well thought out and flies just fine right out of
You can upgrade it with more power if you like, no problem, but let nobody
say the designers did not do their homework, or that the plane cannot fly,
as somebody put a lot of time into this model, and it flies very well, and
it looks really great in the air, and it's very easy to fly.
