Dynam Sukhoi SU-26M Red 1200mm (47") Wingspan - PNP
Dynam Sukhoi SU-26M Red 1200mm (47") Wingspan - PNP - DY8948PNP-RED
The Sukhoi Su-26 is a single-seater aerobatics plane from the former Soviet Union, powered by a single radial reciprocating engine. The Su-26 has mid-mounted straight wings and fixed landing gear, the main gear mounted on a solid titanium arc. The Sukhoi Su-26 made its first flight in June 1984, the original four having a two-bladed prop. The production switched to the Su-26M, with refined tail surfaces and a German-made MTV-9 3-blade composite propeller. Further refinements were made, and the model won both the men's and women's team prizes at the 1986 World Aerobatics Championships. The modified Su-26M3 with the new M9F 430-hp engine dominated the 2003 and 2005 Aerobatic World Championships as well as the 2004 European Championships.
Lightweight and fast, Dynam's SU-26M PNP is virtually ready for most 3D and aerobatic maneuvers you can throw at her! All you need is a 4 channel radio, 4 channel receiver and 4S 14.8V 2200 mAh Li-Po battery and you're ready to get your 3D groove on!

I was warned
I was about the quality control on Dynam products but I had to have a Dynam Sukhoi SU-26M Red 1200mm (47"). Motion RC was great on sipping my order to me and it arrived early. I rushed to open the box and took out all the pieces for inspection only to find that the Cockpit fit had a 3/8 gap at the top where it meets the fuselage. I quickly reboxed everything to send it back. I called Motion RC and conveyed my disappointment. I was told that I could heat the Canopy and reshape it. My thinking is that when you purchase a product you should not have to repair poor quality my the Dynam. Motion RC WAS VERY GOOD on returning it and refunding my money to my CC account. Sence this I have purchased Admiral batteries with great customer service from Motion RC.
This plane made me smile when I opened it up. It's a great looking and great flying plane that will do just about anything you want it to. But.. there are a few things you should modify before you start doing any hard-core aerobatics with it. First, add more magnets to canopy. A good snap roll will throw it off.. and if you're lucky, the battery WON'T go with it. It did in mine, I watched the plane smack the ground pretty hard.. easily fixable (which is a plus too). Second, re-hinge all the control surfaces. The foam hinges won't hold up too long with hard aerobatics. If you tend to take it easy, the foam is probably fine. I don't take it easy, so half of the elevator ripped off mid-flight. Thankfully it was only half, so I was able to land ok. So far the servos seem fine, but I'll keep an eye on them and put metal gear in when needed. So even with the few short-comings, I still give it 5 stars, because for the cost it is a ton of fun.
Love this plane and Motion
Love this plane and Motion RC precessed my order quickly. I'll definitely buy from them again.
Dynam Sukhoi PNP
Servos are **** right out of the box. Plugged it up and it stripped the elevatoer servo as soon as it bound to tx. Replace all servos with a good brand. Other than that it is a great flying plane
Great flyer with a few mods............
I first bought the Blue SU26M and liked it so much I bought the Red one, so I am submitting the same review for both. Not a beginner plane, OK for advanced beginners and great for Intermediates. I'm not doing 3D with it yet but it definitely has the power for it. It has some of the typical Dynam shorthcomings, but with a few tweaks it is a great flyer, especially for what it costs.. Once trimmed it flies on rails on low and high throttle. I am flying it on a 4 cell 2650 pushed all the way forward. I made a battery puller out of extreme shipping tape so I'm not yanking on battery wires to get the battery back out. Now for the shortcomings and tweaks: the control horns you have to install on the tail are very brittle. I was very careful and 3 out of 4 (over the 2 planes) broke. Make sure to buy some extras or go with others; make sure to remove the motor and loctite all of the screws since after several flights with the Blue Su26M the motor popped out and I was able to dead stick land it with the motor hanging by the wires; add an extra magnet to the battery cover since it will come off with a snap roll or similar maneuver with the supplied magnet; rudders came off on both blue and red due just to normal wear/tear, so I hot glued and taped them, up to you if you want to go with pin hinges or something else but at least reinforce the rudder hinge with tape; the supplied pilot doesn't match at all so I just painted him to match the plane and now he looks great; not a Dynam issue but I recommend you paint the bottom wingtips and horizontal stabilizer a high visibility color (I did orange for the blue plane and red for the red plane) to help with orientation; to avoid tipovers on takeoff and to improve your landings you DEFINITELY need to angle (some say rake) the landing gear forward), I did it with some balsa under the back of the landing gear; I also went with bigger screws for the landing gear since the small ones popped out very eadily; I found that while the supplied wheels and wheel pants looked great the plane tended to 'stub it's toes' on the whell pants and flip over on landing, so I changed them out for 2 1/2" Dubro low bounce wheels with wheel collars to hold them on. Last note is that this plane floats great and lands long due to the large wing surface but you definitely need to keep some power on through landing for a smooth landing and rollout vs a pancake. Happy Flying!
The rudder. Servo burn up
The rudder. Servo burn up while adjusting it the elevator tore loose on first flight the elevator servo burned up second flight the motor squealed on third flight I called motion rc they said to fill out warranty if I call horizon hobby they send new no questions ask
This plane is a perfect 3D entry. Very sturdy foam, easy and straightforward assembly, even though the assembly manual is not the best. The esc programming manual is very good. My Sukhoi came with a faulty elevator servo. Nothing i couldn't buy at my LHS for prompt flight. Dynam is great.
Great just ho hum
A friend bought one and I flew it and 12ided to get one for myself. Motion R/C shipped fast and the kit was undamaged with all parts nicely packed with 09arate boxes and 09arators in perhaps the largest box that Motion has sent me. As has been stated too many times the instructions are minimal but really unnecessary. and the canopy magnets are still too far down in the foam Assembly of foam aircraft is straight forward and no construction problems were encountered unless you want to count that there were no clevises for the flying surfaces and the pushrods were not threaded. Not a major problem and I took the opportunity to make substantially better threads and higher end clevises then are usually found on these models. I replaced the standard servos with metal gear type as the first aircraft broke 2 elevator servo gears in rapid succession. you have to throw a servo out simply because they do not make gear sets available. It is basically one tooth on a gear breaking off making engagement impossible. It received the usual 2 coats of water based urethane. It looks good but it is primarily used to keep the model clean of dirt and stains. As powered it is a nice pattern type flyer but otherwise it is dull. It needs more of everything to bring this plane up to its full potential. I did not have to do any unusual trimming to get the model on track and it flies the maneuvers nicely on point. You won't win a pattern contest but it isn't bad.Throw points are not mentioned as everyone has their preference but I carry a little more than usual it seems. Take the wheel pants off and put Du Bro 2.25 slim wheels on it, it handles grass well. take off and landing are a non event so equipped. So far there have been no problems with any of the landing gear parts. I like this model,it has no bad habits and with minimal upgrades it just could turn into one of the stars of the fleet. get one, it isn't bad value for the money.
