E-flite Sukhoi SU-29MM (Gen 2) BNF Basic 1120mm (44") Wingspan - BNF
44" Wingspan E-flite Sukhoi SU-29MM (Gen 2) BNF Basic - Bind-N-Fly (BNF) - EFL8850
It wasn't that long ago where if you were relatively new to the hobby, you couldn't attempt these 3D aerobatic airplanes without the likelihood of a crash. Those days are long gone thanks to AS3X® and SAFE® technology that is now common place in most E-flite models. The E-flite Sukhoi Su-29MM Gen 2 improves on the original with enhanced technology that allows pilots to fine tune their AS3X stabilization system to their own preference.
The combination of the lightweight yet highly durable Z-Foam™ matched with a powerful 10-size brushless motor allows for the Sukhoi Su-29MM to be as dynamic and demonstrative as possible. For all the insurance you could need, the optional Panic Recovery mode using SAFE® technology during the binding process will give you the ability to achieve level flight regardless of orientation in the event of loss of control, all with the press of a button.
So regardless of whether you are a relatively newcomer to the hobby with just basic flying skills, or an advanced pilot with 3D ability, the E-flite Sukhoi Su-29MM has you covered. Take to the skies with confidence and get ready for the exciting thrills that only 3D aerobatics can offer!
World-class designer and champion aerobatic pilot, Mike McConville, designed the Su-29MM to be an outstanding aerobatic park flyer with large control surfaces that have 3D deflections and a light wing loading for handling that’s predictable.
Outstanding Slow-Speed Flight
Vortex Generators located on the leading edge surfaces of the wings foil the passing air in a way that enhances lift and allows the ailerons to stay effective even at slow air speeds.
Lightweight and Durable
Construction with Z-Foam™ material adds a level durability that makes every day flying more fun while its inherent lightness increases all aspects of flight performance.

One of the best flyers I have flown and at a good price
Sukhoi is a NO GO !
Motor has never worked properly. I've tried resetting the ESC numerous times and still it won't work correctly. Would like to return but unsure how. The plane is very nice and all the control surfaces work just fine, but the motor is a no go. It comes only for a few seconds then dies out.
Very fun airplane
Took this plane from the UPS driver right to the field. Assembled it at our flying field in about 20 minutes. Plane flies fantastic and is a lot of fun. Bought this plane to practice some of the 3D maneuvers and it is perfect for that.
One of the best flyers around. Love the wing design. Decal application not so hot though.
Very easy to assemble and
Very easy to assemble and set up on my dx7 radio. And perfect balance with battery mounted all the way forward. Has plenty of power for my style of flying.
Great to learn 3d
Aircraft flys great with standard Spektrum rx.
I absolutely love this plane, however, the canopy will come off just from fuselage flexing in aerobatics. I put magnets in and they hold it. Doc
My excellent second airplane after Pandora trainer
I ran, not walked to the computer to purchase the Sukhoi Su-29MM Gen 2 after reading the review in the AMA magazine Model Aviation. When I purchased the Sukhoi, I had a little over a year in the hobby and had gotten comfortable flying basic aerobatics in the Freewing Pandora with about 200-300 flights under my belt. I knew that the aerobatics was the area I wanted to concentrate my efforts, and part of the appeal of the Suhkoi was that it could use the same 3S batteries I had invested in for the Pandora. As write this review, I have had the Sukhoi about 9 months and have about 100 flights on it. The build quality and packaging of the Sukhoi was excellent. Since I travel, I appreciate that the aircraft can be disassembled easily and put back in the original packing for shipping. The servos, pushrods, and servo connectors are solid, providing negligible free play in the flight control system. Assembly on the aircraft is almost trivial. I programmed my DX-6i transmitter using the factory settings. I had to add one stick-on lead weight in the nose to get the book c.g. with an Admiral 3S 2600 battery installed. My first flight with the Sukhoi was nearly a loss...after a normal preflight control check, I took off and the aircraft climbed straight ahead and wouldn't turn or climb. I flipped the transmitter to high rates and was barely able to get it on the ground undamaged. I didn't have the presence of mind to flip the switch on the SAFE mode as perhaps I took off with it engaged. Since I didn't really think the SAFE mode would be much use if I got into trouble, I rebound the receiver without SAFE mode and haven't had any issues since. After my second, successful flight with the Sukhoi, I haven't looked back - the Pandora sat unused in the garage until I gave it away (still in flying condition). The Sukhoi does aerobatics like it is on rails. It is easy to maintain vertical uplines and downlines, and you can fix a lot of problems with power. I think the AS3X is a great tool for learning hovering, knife edge flight, etc. The aircraft recovers immediately from spins. One area I am still working on is flattening spins; even with high rates and full power, during both upright and inverted spins the aircraft is in a nose low attitude. The aircraft has a nice sound in the air as well. It has plenty of power to hover. I like the size - and it fits in the truck of my mid-sized car. One regret is not buying this aircraft sooner. While the Pandora is a great trainer, in some ways the Sukhoi 29MM is easier to fly because it is more powerful (shorter takeoff roll) and has crisper control response (there is a lot of control rod bending with the Pandora, especially in the rudder and elevator). Using the same Admiral 2600 mAh 3S batteries that provided 7-8 minutes of flight with the Pandora, I get 4-5 minutes of acrobatic flight with the Sukhoi 29MM. I have had some issues with landing; tendency to get slow and drop it in, which has resulted in prop strikes as the gear splays on a hard touchdown.I haven't had problems landing my Viking 280 or FMS Yak-54, so I am not sure I am fighting the AS3X or there is a better set up I could be using. I'd recommend ordering several spare props. The aircraft flies well in wind strong enough that it is impossible to fly symmetric loops and the landing approach is a vertical descent. The foam used in the construction is high quality, and has retained its smooth finish. The wing tips have some minor hangar rash, and the white forward part of the fuselage has been slightly discolored from my fingers during handling.
