New Mig-29, 2x70mm fans, 1514mm length
 
Hello there,

the rumour mill from the Shanghai model show reports: Lanxiang is preparing a new, big, grey Mig-29 with 2x70mm fans and an overall length of 1514mm. It is about as big as their Su-47. Guessing from the picture given on the homepage of Ready2Fly (http://www.ready2fly.ch/), then the novelties & features seem to include:
  • Ailerons and separate flaps (nice)
  • Leading edge slats (that's new!)
  • Fully functional tail rudders in addition to 360 TV
  • An ejectable Pete ahem Pilot (SCNR :D Pete)
  • Bomb drop and coloured smoke facility

When this plane will actually ship is a big unknown. Lanxiang themselves wrote only "F16, F18 and Mig29 will come soon" at one of their sites (http://lxhm.en.ecplaza.net/).

Does anybody else have any infos, particularly pictures?

Cheers,
Henrik

Lanxiang is really becoming a force to be reckoned with. Lots of really cool stuff. Man i wish theyd do a scaled up version of their SR-71 or even their B-2....wouldn't that be awesome.

Very excited to see info on their new releases...thanks for the heads up.

If Lanxiang bring out an F-18, I hope its a twin 70mm D model.

Cheers

The wings are way off scale on that mig. The raptor looks half way decent. The coolest thing is that C-17 in that link. Now that is really cool.

You can't do a twin F-18 AND do retracts unless they are scale like rotating retracts. There's been one F-18 foam arf with retracts and they wanted so much money for it they never really sold that well. Plus I read the retracts were flimsy and also from the pics the nose shape was really off.

I don't miss the twin sound at all on my F-18s, theyr'e both singles. I also don't have to bungee them since they have retracts.

I like the size of these birds, 59 inches long....bigger does fly better and can carry larger wheels to handle rough surfaces.

Wow. That C17 is pretty impressive. Ready2Fly is a great site. There's a big Jug and Spit on the Warbirds page too.

YEA the c17 looks like it would be kinda cool.

It was still there when I posted at 1:30AM busting teha's chops. Luckily I copied the pic before then. Here it is. That thing looks cool. I do hope they make it available.

If you go to the F-22 page there's a video of the F-22 fling with he smoke on. Pretty interesting effect. I wonder if smoke missle replacements are available?
