This is a 1/8 scale Mig 21. I find the plan on Ebay. Not much informations here?:
. No CG , fixed gears and for an IC ducted fan . But perfect for a TJ 100 on 10-12 cells. I ad the formers laser cut...Next time I will do that myself because the company made so many mistake.
I started by making the intake duct . Discs of pink foam in between two templates , hot wire and cover with Monokote ...wax and PVA. + .75 oz fiberglass and a 6 oz. reenforce with carbon tow. The out-take tube is made of card paper and I will add Mylar later.
I made a jig and I started planked the fuse with 1/8 strips of medium balsa . Very long and therapeutic job . So far , removed the fuse from the jig and I'm planking the bottom. Scratching my head for placement of hatch and plumbing for retract etc... The challenging part is the front retract and more .
To follow...

Ok I received the retract.
I was able to buried the air tank in the tail.
I finished planking and sanded....etetetectera
I finish the foam nose and the cone in pink foam .I will cover those with fiber first and I will install and build the rudder........Continue Reading

Hello,

Last year @ the Ohio E.Jet event I got a Electra Camo with the VIOFAN 5412 + the blue retract. Sunday march 15 the temperature finally rise and I was able to maiden the plane with a12 S pack. I was a bit nervous , but I build and flew the first version last year with a TF4000....

I knew the plane will behave like a trainer.Just one click up on elevator and the rest was just a superb flight.....The Viofan is incredible with a fantastic sound and a very hidden power inside: I LOVED>
THANK YOU BVM you are the BEST


This is the message I sent to BVM

Very long winter in east Canada, Ontario.....After cleaning the basement ,make some order in my fleet I decide to finally build this EAM B17.
Fiberglass fuse, foam wing, pneumatic retracts, tail retract, 4 brush less out runner motor Brio 10 with matching controller (10 amps)
3 or 4 cells 5000 mah .
Motor and controller are wired in series.
I measure the amperage with 4 cells and 9/4 prop and is 45 amps @ full power and around 25 amps cruising.( I have to use shorter prop ...to close to the ground)
The plane weight : 6.5 lb.
All the balsa surface are cover with .75 once cloth and Aeropoxy resin ,I did some panel line with drafting tapes and did some rivets( a first) with soldering iron.
I painted the model with Tamya acrylic paint with my Passche airbrush.
I made the wing @the aileron removable for transport , easy for connection to.
I'm still waiting for the marking ( from the local hobby shop, courtesy of Richard Robichaud of Discount Hobbies)
Here is the first pic after living the basement.
A+
