This was my first MIG-21. Lost her on a low roll when I guessed wrong and dumbthumbed it into the ground.

This plane almost didn't fly. Had a heck of a time getting it right. Finally it was fly or the dumpster. Glad I kept it, it now flies FANTASTIC! 4 years in the making and TWO build threads because they were so long.

Did a repaint Feb 2012 back to original scheme

F7U-3 Cutlass
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...=564776&page=9

Recently remotored the Cutlass with a Scorpion 3020-1200 kv and the performance is INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!! The climb rate to OOS has to be seen to be believed! But still is a wonderful flier and did not lose any of the beautiful glide.
Top speed is still to TBD because we were afraid to open her up even though I replaced the Hs-55 servos to Hs-82MGs. Those huge elevons need to be respected. But it is easily the fastest plane in my stable. Has to be the best flying and most versatile plane that I have ever built.
Here is video from the Ace in the Hole event in Vegas Oct 2010.

Video from Ace in the Hole event at Vegas Oct 2010
A lot happened on this flight. First we noticed some flutter in the rudder so that kept our speed down. Then the worse thing happened.
During the flight the 12.5 oz battery slid 6" back out of the batt tray! Nut did a wonderful job just getting her on the ground in one piece! Only damage was a broken motor mount. The batt slides back at about 3:15 of the video, we heard a "clunk" and she started porpoising on Nut. Notice also how she was acting while he was trying to get her on the ground. I'm very lucky to still have this plane.
This plane is a great flier, looks majestic in the air, and is very close to a 100 mph airplane.
