The beautiful rc Su-35 pictured above was built by Charlie Hoang using his own drawings. It has a fiberglass fuselage with balsa sheeted foamy wings, a wingspan of 38" and a length of 57". Charlie built his rc Su-35 with navigation lights and retractable landing gear. Power comes from a pair of 64 mm EDF's. Weight is about 3 1/2 lbs.

The newest aircraft also differ from their predecessors by having more powerful, more efficient engines. A quadruple redundancy digital fly by wire system that the pilot controls by using a side stick gives the pilot greater control of the aircraft.

In the pictures immediately above and below is the rc Su-35 from Aviation Design. Wingspan is 72" and length is 108". Construction is epoxy glass for the fuselage and epoxy carbon for the  wings and stabs. For power two AMT Mercury, RAM 750 or 1000, or Jet Cat P80 or 120 turbines can be used. Weigh is approximately 40 lbs.

Enhanced avionics of the new Sukhoi Su-35 include a radar system that has the ability to track up to 24 targets simultaneously, a head up display, and digital displays on a series of cockpit monitors. A terrain following radar mode gives the pilot the ability to fly ground hugging missions below radar detection levels.

The fuel capacity of the aircraft has been increased, both internally and externally, over its predecessor. In addition it is fitted with an in-flight refueling system. Although not a true stealth aircraft, the Su-35 incorporates technology to produce a smaller radar signature and lower IR emissions than similar size fighter aircraft.

To date 40 Sukhoi Su-35 aircraft have been produced for Russia.  China has ordered 24 of the aircraft and Indonesia has ordered 12 Su-35 aircraft.
