Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to share an email I recieved a while back from a cool Friend of FoamFighters, Noel Soudent from the Netherlands.  Noel is a cool and talented person learning CAD Design. He sent me a PDF of an awesome plan for a FoamBoard SU-37. Please see his email and Free PDF plans below.

Many thanks to Noel for shareing his talents with all of us!

Email from Noel:

Hi Paul

I have tried to make a ff sukhoi 37 plan

As this is my first try with a cad program and it is your dayjob I would like you to see what you think of it. and maybe some hints and tips I used a very simple program I could download for free from the internet I haven’t built it yet because Im just in the beginning stage of the plan. And I have not a lot of time left when I finish my dayjob. So have a look and if you like it and you can use it for the foam fighters just do. I would like that very much After this one I will try a mig 29 ff and maybe a mig 21 but that might be a problem cause of the round fuselage maybe foamboard wing surfaces and another foam fuselage

I really enjoy your youtube films. 

Regards

Noel Soudant

Hi Frank,

We built the FB-28 on your recommendation.
Here are a few photos of the plan.
Constructed with 6mm corflute (main wing) and 3mm corflute for everything else. (Estate Agent signs)
We increased the wingspan by 80mm. ( everything else remains the same)
Weighs in at under 800 gram. (AUW)
We used an RCTimer 2212-6  Brushless (2200 Kv) and a 3S liPo (2200mah Turnigy) battery.
40 Amp ESC (Tower-pro) and Hextronic 9 gram servos.
It flies just great.
At the beginning it was a little twitchy because CG was about 6mm too far back
but now we got that all sorted and also backed off the rates a little.

You know, I’d love to see you Guys do a version of the B2 Stealth bomber.
That would be Awesome.
PLEASE Guys, design one and upload the plans  🙂
Will you be doing a B2 Stealth soon ?

Thanks, Nadia
