I have covered the build of the Ultrafly Sukhoi in Part One of this review. It was now time to check the throws, charge the LiPos and head to the field. At a ‘midge’ under 23 ounces, the model has a 'heavy' feel about it but don't let this kid you – there is quite a bit of wing area there. The ply keel has a grip included that makes hand launching easy; the waft from that brushless set up takes care of the acceleration to flying speed – and how.

Insidious this electric flying, isn't it? Plenty of us glider guiders and power flyers are getting sucked in – whether we want to or not. Let's face it, there's a lot of fun to be had from a wider variety of models so why not? I must admit, though, I prefer to think of it as an extension to my modelling activities. This is easy to grasp when considering the differences between a sedate thermal glider and a fast flying, rapid rolling, jet-type electric job. I digress.
