  1. CARF Sukhoi SU-31 2.75m Skydancer Scheme Red/Blue/White
    $2,240.00
    CARF Sukhoi SU-31 2.75m Skydancer Scheme Red/Blue/White

    CARF Sukhoi SU-31 2.75m Skydancer Scheme Red/Blue/White

    Description:

    Comprised of a new and fresh color combination, the Skydancer Scheme looks on a Sukhoi, so say many, even better than on an Extra. The white base with the red an blue accents looks very elegant, and the waving lines support the lines of the plane. A very special scheme, which has proven to be popular even in other color combinations. And color swaps are easily possible for a little extra charge at order date.

    Please note: The cowl louvres come painted in single background color!


    General Information:

    For over a decade the SU-31 has earned the reputation of being one of the best and most successful aerobatic aircraft of all times. Besides the naked facts, some just love it because of its looks, some just because of the huge cowl housing a round engine. Our 3m SU-31 represents all these qualities and the new, smaller version is building right on this legacy.

    With 2.75m wingspan this aircraft is just that little bit bigger than a typical „100cc“ aerobatic plane, and just that little bit smaller than giant the 3m machines which not everybody can transport and store so easily. The 2.75m wingspan has proven to be the golden compromise for many.
    However, CARF-Models can offer this airplane also with a typical 2.6m wing, which makes it even more a pattern machine, perfectly suited for F3A-X. Almost „square“ dimensions will give any pilot the competitive edge over most of the pack. And if 3D flying is preferred, the 2.75m wing with its thick trailing edges is putting the model into action in any airshow or freestyle contest.

    The choice is yours. You can‘t only chose between several standard or even custom color schemes, you can also choose the wing type, thus the flying style and competition performance. The CARF-SU-31 2.6m / 2.75m is another rule breaker and rule maker in its class.

    As usual, with our SU-31 2.75m you get an extremely well prefabricated airplane. It is super-strong, yet light weight and well-engineered for the flying stresses in competition. Made for 100-120 cc engines, it will also house the 3W 114 four cylinder engine, which many favour in this class.

    The average weight is going to be somewhere between 13 and 14 kg. For an over 2.5m long airplane a very impressive value. We know that weight wise we will never be able to compete with a super-light Chinese balsa airplane, but as soon as you have your first contest in somewhat windy conditions, you will know why our philosophy rules.  And if you look at your plane after 2 years of active flying, still looking like new out of the box, you will realize that all her wooden companions have vanished meanwhile. Also you’ll notice that our Sukhoi looks like a Sukhoi. It’s not an Extra with a round cowl and it’s not a Yak-54 where the designer had no clue how the full scale aircraft ever looked. It is an aircraft with the same looks, with the same character as the full scale. And still, it has all the tweaks and modifications we modelers think a successful contest plane must have to be competitive at highest levels. The CARF-Models SU-31 2.75, also with the shorter 2.6m wings, is a marvel in its class, a joy to build and to fly and a beauty to look at. It’s a plane where only you on the stick are the limit.


    Wings:

    The 2.75 m wing has not only extended wing tips, it also has a slightly thicker airfoil, resulting in a thick trailing edge of 5-10 mm from tip to root. It is designed for 2 aileron servos, where the outer servo has been moved inwards. A single servo setup doesn't seem to be working safely anymore, since the torque of the extremely powerful servos needs to be brought into the aileron somehow, and the light weight structure of a control surface can only take so much load on one specific point. So the two servos are highly recommended, even though they do not need to be symmetrically distributed over the wing span. A 40 mm aluminum tube as a standard wing joiner has proven to be sufficient for this size of airplane and can be upgraded by the many aftermarket carbon tubes available today. Why did we make the two wings? Mainly to allow this plane to become a leading figure in the german F3A-X contest rounds, where the wing span is limited.


    Tail:

    The stabs are joined to the fuselage with a 20 mm aluminum tube. The elevators are center hinged on an aluminum hinge tube. Each half is prepared for a drop in fit of a single high power servo. The rudder is also center hinged. The SU-31 is not very CG sensitive so there is the option for a direct drive rudder setup, even though we include a 2-servo tray which mounts behind the canopy area on the fuselage bottom. Of course all control horns are installed and all allignments are done and ready out of the box.

    Fuselage and Cowling:


    The fuselage is impressively large, over 2.5m long with Spinner. That comes close to some of the smaller 40% airplanes out there. The cowl has 36 cm diameter, so there is plenty of room to fit any kind of engine. The fuselage has the typical 3 design features, which is a strong aircraft grade and carbon reinforced landing gear mount, the dual former setup behind the canopy and inside the rudder fin, and the 2-part cowling to allow easy access to the engine and canister arrangement. There is plenty of room inside the fuselage for canisters or full pipes. Canopy frame is long, even though the canopy itself is quite short, which allows easy access to everything.


    Engine Choices:

    The DA 120 has proven to be a fantastic power source for this airplane. Even with a larger 3-blade prop there is still sufficient power for any aerobatic maneuvers within an unlimited sequence. For 3D a smaller prop can be mounted to make the engine more reactive on throttle bursts. However, we are currently installing a 3W 114 four cylinder in one  and will keep you updated how this will work. this engine has become the most sought after powerplant for the F3A-X scene in Germany and we are confident that the plane is going to work very well with it. So far, any 100-120 cc engine will be suited for the plane. In terms of radial power, the Moki 180 5-cyl could be a great choice, too.


    Flight Characteristics:

    Our SU-31 is definitely a great pattern machine. It flies through any sequence with 40%er authority but with 35%er equipment. Whether to use the 2.6m or the 2.75m wing is simply a matter of personal preference. It rolls very fast and true, still allows soft aileron corrections around the center without feeling aggressive. it snaps extremely well, especially the 2.6m wing and it barely needs any mixing to compensate knife edge coupling. The long fuselage and the large tail allow to experiment with the CG a lot, the plane has a very wide CG range. A total weight of around 13 kg (28 lb) is absolutely perfect for sequence flying, and responsible for the high authority in the air in the first place. For 3D flying, the larger 2.75m wings make it still feel nimble and feather light.

    Specifications:

        Wingspan: 108" (2750 mm) w/tip tanks
        Length: 95" (2420 mm)
        Weight: 28.5 Lbs (13 kg) dry

  2. CARF JOKER Plug and Play Sport Jet Yellow Scheme
    $2,599.00
    CARF JOKER Plug and Play Sport Jet Yellow Scheme

    Plug and Play Version - Sport Jet "JOKER" - small, fast, slick, shiny. Yellow Scheme

    See additional images in product listing.

    Description

    CARF-Models enters the Plug&Play market with an ulitmately prefabricated version of the JOKER Sport Jet. Additionally to the installed and wired electric retractable landing gear of the standard version, the PNP version features:

    - 8 installed digital coreless HV servos of the 15mm type, servo arms adjusted to 1500 ms signal at neutral position

    - all linkages adjusted to neutral positon, aligned, installed and connected

    - all servos wired, wires routed professionally and safely to the receiver position, proper plugs where wing and stab separate from fuselage

    - fuel tank plumbed and leak-tested, ready to be filled

    Only the actual installation of turbine, turbine equipment, receiver and batteries is needed to be ready to fly!

     

    General Information

    Small Sport jets are trendy...! The CARF-Models Joker is following this development, being based on our former and smaller EDF Sport Jet "Spark", now a little enlarged in size, simplified in design and prepared for the increasingly popular 70-80 N jet engines.

    160 cm wing span and a little under 2m length, single piece wing and stab mounted to the fuselage from the bottom with 2 dowels and 2 bolts, all control surfaces pre-hinged as elastic flaps, all these features follow the successful path of our larger sport jets, such as the UltraFlash. To make it even more compact, the fuselage has a removable nose cone which allows transportation in very small cars. And the box size is very small as well, thus UPS shippable around the globe at economical prices.

    The component layout is very simple, open ducting and a single central fuel tank makes all installation very easy and light. It is prepared to side-mount 8 common 15 mm servos such as a SAVOX 1260. Prefabrication has been taken to a level where only the servos have to be clicked in and engine has to be mounted with 4 screws. The electric retract is included in the kit and already installed. A complete hardware includes linkages and all necessary hardware in German quality. Also in prefabrication and completeness it beomes a benchmark. Almost Plug&Play the Joker comes along. Complete with fuel tank, thrust tube, servo mounts, even an electric retract is already installed.


    RC Installation

    All servos are pepared to be mounted on their side. Common size 15mm servos are used. We offer a servo package of 8 SAVÖX 1260 which just drop in and get held down with a carbon plate and two screws. High quality linkages, cut to their exact length, are included in the hardware bag.

    Landing Gear

    The CARF-Models Joker comes with an electric retract set, already instealled and ready to operate. It includes rugged rubber wheels, electric brakes and an integrated controller operating all the functions either from the receiver battery or from a separate power source. The nose gear comes with a direct servo mount on the strut, eliminating additional mechanical connections or cables. The gear is very strong and proven by thousands of similar sized sport jets on our flying fields world wide.


    Propulsion & Fuel System

    The CARF-Models Joker is designed for 70-80 N engines. These engines are light weight, have very economical fuel consumption, thus allow flying times of well over 7 minutes with the included fiberglass fuel tank. The fuel tank mount is already installed, the fuel tank set comes with a hopper tank and all plumbing hardware.


    The dual wall thrust tube is made from superlight stainless steel and aluminum, has a carbon entry cone and drops right into the fuselage, interlocking with the engine formers.


    Flight Characteristics

    There is no difference in flight performance to even significantly larger Sport Jets. The CARF-Models Joker flies "large". Not twitchy at all, rock solid it all maneouvers. The speed range is wide and both the aerobatic capabilities as well as the slow flight characteristics are extremely impressive. You have to see it, you have to fly it yourself to believe.

    Specifications:

        Wingspan: 63" (1600 mm)
        Length: 77" (1950 mm)
        Weight: 14 Lbs (6.5 kg) dry
        Engine: 70-80 N
        Servos: 8 High Torque digital mini servos
