su30s and su47...vid


Recommended Posts

I find the canards on the "Su-47" (I still call it the S-37, as it is still a flight demonstrator) very facinating, because at low speeds they are used as "flaplerons" (tilted down at 20-30 degrees), while prividing control in the ordinary canard fashion (move up -> more pitch, move down -> less pitch). And at higher speeds it is used as the "Sukhoi canards", prividing vorticies for the wing root at high angles of attack.


I also love the way the engines' AB spikes when going to full throttle (those two sharp flames).



Oh, and has anyone ever seen a photo of the cockpit of the Su-47?
