Agree that the F-15 is a nice selection - it is much more stable than the MIG-29
The micro T-45 from what I've heard, is not quite as benign as it's larger version. It takes some mods to work like the 50mm.

After fixing the thrust line issue on the Mig-29, I removed some foam in the lipo area and use the same 3s 800 mAh packs as in the F-15. The fixed Mig flys more like the F-15 now. They both rip along pretty good on 3s.

Fits perfect in that spot. In the Mig-29, the lipo gets moved forward about a half inch to clear the rear of the canopy. You can use smaller lipos by just placing them more forward in the battery compartment. They really did a good job on these twins.
