"The Sukhoi Su-30 ( NATO reporting name: Flanker-C) is a twin-engine, two-seat supermaneuverable fighter aircraft developed in the Soviet Union by Russia's Sukhoi Aviation Corporation. It is a multi-role fighter for all-weather, air-to-air and air-to-surface deep interdiction missions.
The Su-30 started out as an internal development project in the Sukhoi Su-27 family by Sukhoi. The design plan was revamped and the name was made official by the Russian Defense Ministry in 1996. Of the Flanker family, the Su-27, Su-30, Su-33, Su-34 and Su-35 have been ordered into limited or serial production by the Defense Ministry. The Su-30 has two distinct version branches, manufactured by competing organizations: KnAAPO and the Irkut Corporation, both of which come under the Sukhoi group's umbrella."

"AMA recently met with the White House National Economic Council regarding a proposed executive order on foreign-made UAS and the FAA’s proposed rule on Remote ID. The proposed executive order that has been drafted by President Trump’s administration, if signed, would ban the federal government’s use of foreign-made UAS, including model aircraft."

Doyle and I visited the Hobby Connection in August 13th, 2020, while on a trip to the Upstate.
They bill themselves as the largest hobby shop in South Carolina, and I believe it. Looked like they specialize in RC cars/Racing. They have three race tracks, oval dirt, dirt (for off road types), and an oval street track. They also had a great supply of model trains, model rockets, plastic models, and even pinewood derby kits. Best selection of RC planes, drones, and helicopters I've seen in the state.
Took the guts and electronics from three crashed planes and bought these kits from ebay. The video details some of the construction and flight video, The kits are identical except for the wings and decals. I made each into an EDF version and another, the Blaze, with a pusher prop.
