E-Flite Sukhoi SU-26m 480 ARF

E-Flite Sukhoi SU-26m 480 ARF

In the world of competition aerobatic airplanes, the Russian Sukhoi SU-26m is the equivalent of a top fuel dragster that can turn on a dime. Its combination of absurd amounts of horsepower, light weight, rugged construction, and amazing agility allows aggressive pilots to perform to the limits of their physical endurance.

The E-flite® Sukhoi SU-26m is a scaled-down version of the Hangar 9® Sukhoi SU-26MM designed by world-class IMAC competitor Mike McConville. The E-flite SU-26m features an exceptionally lightweight airframe that was designed around the powerful Park 480 BL outrunner motor (sold separately). As with the full-scale Sukhoi, this combination of lightweight construction and prodigious power gives the E-flite SU-26m unlimited performance that is ideally suited for 3D aerobatics.

Battery & Charger

Tech Notes WARNING: Digital sub-micro servos have a higher current draw and may overload the BEC of the recommended Electronic Speed Control (ESC). Always be sure to position the ESC for maximum airflow since cooling can significantly aid in the performance of the BEC. Use of a separate BEC (like the UBEC) or receiver battery pack may also be necessary.

Use of servos other than those we recommend may overload the BEC of the recommended Electronic Speed Control (ESC). We suggest the use of only the servos we recommend when utilizing the recommended ESC’s BEC, or the use of a separate BEC (like the UBEC) or receiver battery pack when using other servos.
