Moving the c of g back will make it MORE unstable.
 
When you say 'unstable' - in what form?
Is it very twitchy, or tip-stalling all the time.
The first is either too much control movement, dodgy radio link, or an aft c of g
and the second is lack of airspeed,
usually.

hi  the c of g is where the instructions in the manual say it should be ,and yes it is twitchy and tip stalling it  seems very much lacking in power i have been in touch with horizone hobbies and they come up with change the prop to a smaller one as on the mini mustang.

Jack, type Parkzone Sukhoi in the 'search the site' box and you'll see a number of chat threads and three reviews - you might pick up some flying tips there.

A spot of advice if anyone has time to comment... I recently bought a parkzone sulhoi, but found the receiver/servos were constantly beeping/buzzing/chattering. This didn't seem right to me, so I sent it back, only to be told that it's normal, they're all like that. I'm now feeling a bit fobbed off. Surely they didn't design them to be like that? My gut feeling is that they've made a faulty batch, and as they still fly OK, they just want to shift them? I'd be interested to hear if anyone has one of these that doesn't have noisy gear in it. Thanks

same on my ultra micro 4-site. it is normal, all of the AR6400 types and the (AS2000?) servos do it. i presume they are digital as digital servos make this kind of noise aswell. Its not a problem, my 4-site still flies beautifully and control response is great for a model this size where servos tend to be slower. Just fly and enjoy

My PZ Micro Mustang makes this noise as well. Doesn't seem to do it any harm.

Hi Rob
 
My Parkzone Sukhoi does the same. Flies fine.

You weren't fobbed off, they do indeed all do it. I have two micro Mustangs and they both make that noise, it's almost morse code sometimes but always a buzzing beeping servo sound. Relax and enjoy it, they fly really well.

Hi David, I have just bought one so did the search as you advised, from what I can see all the threads refer to the old version, I guess Jack, like me has the new Yellow and Blue SU26xp. I tried to fly mine last Sunday however it was a little rough for it, I did get it in the air briefly but found it very lively which serves me right, I didn't bother with the ret up instructions so allthough the C of G was set as instructions, I didn't set any expo or low rates.

Mike - I've just had a look on the Horizon Uk site and couldn't see them listed. Might be worth giving them a call though on 01279 641097.
 
Andrew - I've only seen a few skimming round at indoor meetings. I guess you'd need flat calm outside? I can imagine you'd need a dose of expo though.

Mine was very twichey untill I added wash out on the ailerons by bending the last 1", or so, upwards-I cut 1/2" off each tip on the prop

Well mine flys very well for its size,using the 165 mah battery
and a 3/4" screw on the tail to get the CG right plus 60%expo on the TX
2 to 3 mph wind.
Look forward to flying in no wind.
 
Mike. in sunny Norfolk

Was able to maiden my Parkzone SU26xp today at last, only flew for 3 minutes before the wind forced me to land. Still was able to determine that it is a smooth flyer, albeit slightly twitchy but that was most likely down to the gusty conditions. Great fun to fly with plenty of power, flies quite quickly so you have to keep your eye on it especially when flying outside Hopefully I'll be able to try out the aerobatic side of things when the wind is low enough or I can find an Indoor venue big enough near Bedford Have only ever flown my Eflite Ember indoors so it might be interesting


Survived Scratch free


Unfortunately my Easystar didn't exactly survive the days flying scratch free though

Wasn't as bad as I was expecting in the wind but they are definitely more fun in calmer conditions I've flown the Ember outside which is half the weight of the SU26 at 17grams and that definitely didn't like the wind
