Don't speak Russian but I suspect they are saying controlled flat spin somewhere

So, is the opposite a "well-endowed" spin?

 

See, China, THAT is the size you make landing gear doors!

I would say "spin recovery test". Maybe, that i'm wrong.

 

Its an impressive bird. Very interessting for me was the design of the wing roots with the movable parts, which seems to be able to act as canards.

  Yeah, they're apparently called levcons which are "active" as in moving LERX's.  Atleast thats what wiki says.

Very cool. I wonder if it's going to have any multi-role capability or if it will be a pure interceptor.
