nnMiG 3 - FREE PLANS
-Jaxx from the FT forums
I wasn't very interested in the speed before watching this video. Now, I have to go find that aluminum spar that you use in your wings.

Nic, again you nailed another warbird. Im really enjoying following your builds! keep up the awesome work!
Hi friends, it's that time again! I have just completed my 4th design and I am pleased to present to you my nnMiG 3 swappable.
When I started to design the nnMiG 3 I had just one thing in mind, speed. I wanted something purpose built from the ground up to be able to handle high speed and high G flying. With an all new, ultra-thin, semi symmetrical airfoil, and razor sharp tailing edge, the nnMiG 3 wing allows you to achieve the highest level of performance. The flush installation of the wing on the fuselage removes the need to cut a ‘wing hole’ and leaves a seamless look and feel. The nnMiG 3 is truly a high performing plane and is a real treat to fly.
I covered the design and build process over on the FT forums so if you're interested check out that thread.

Beginner – You’ve never flown a plane before, let alone done a scratch build
Novice – You’ve flown a plane but have no experience with scratch building
Intermediate – You’ve flown and built a few FT style planes before
Advanced – You’ve mastered the standard FT build style and are looking for a new challenge
Expert – You’ve mastered all build techniques and aren’t afraid to improvise or tackle tedious builds
The nnMiG 3 is an advanced build.

I have been unable to make a build video for the nnMiG 3 but some FT community members have stepped up to the challenge. Thanks Guy and Jayz!
What is the nnMiG 3 made out of?
Dollar Tree Foam Board
Will this plane work with the standard FT powerpod and electronics?
Yes. The Beef package/park 425 or greater will work just fine and the maiden video was shot using this type of setup.
How scale is the nnMiG 3?
The elevator was enlarged by a small amount, everything else is as scale as I could make it.
Is the nnMiG 3 a good plane for a beginner to fly?
No. It is an advanced build and requires a skilled pilot to fly.
I want to build the 120MPH version of the nnMiG 3, what do I need to know?
The standard build and 120MPH build are the same. You’ll already need an aluminum spar in the wing but no structural changes need to be made in order to achieve 120MPH. See this post for more info on the spar: http://forum.flitetest.com/showthrea...l=1#post137423
Tips stalls at slow speed will occur. They aren’t very bad and with very little effort you can recover.
Wind performance is great. There are no issues in the wind at all.
You’ll need about half throttle to launch and landing is not bad on the standard electronics. If you’re running the Tacon motor and 4s you’ll need to come in hot on your landings.
Rolls, loops, and inverted are solid. The nnMiG 3 has a very clean looking roll.
The large wing cord helps the glide slope but don’t expect too much out of the nnMiG 3 here, she wants to go fast.
SLOW SPEED PERFORMANCE
For the design, I’d say it’s not bad. With that being said the overall slow speed performance is average compared to a standard FT style wing design, but above average compared to comparable EPO foamies.
LOOK AND FEEL
The nnMiG 3 looks amazing with the red decals on the white body. The large winglets and long nose are really eye catching features. It’s hard to describe the overall feel of the nnMiG 3 but the best way I can put it is that you can really feel the weight of the plane. It doesn’t feel floaty or impacted by wind. It just does what you control it to do. The controls are responsive and crisp and the plane has follow through. Inputs carry weight and you can feel it as you fly. It’s not something I’ve encountered flying DTFB planes before so it is a cool experience.
The nnMiG 3 is a super sleek, extremely fast, and exciting plane to fly. It doesn’t have any really bad tendencies with everything accounted for, but don’t expect a floaty trainer experience. The nnMiG 3 is an advanced build and will take an experienced pilot to fly safely and well. The standard electronics provide very good performance and for those daring enough the PROJECT Speed setup will give you hours of glorious, white knuckle fun.
Thanks for checking out the nnMiG 3! If you built a nnMiG 3 and enjoyed it please consider donating a few bucks so I can buy more supplies to make more great planes.
Also, coming soon is the nnA-10 and nnP-38, so be on the look out for those. In the mean time check out my previous designs.

Definitely! It's kinda funny because all the other pilots assume it's some misshaped p51. I always get a pleasantly surprised 'HUH' when they realize it's a MiG 3.
I hear you there, I've got quite a few to dos.
I'm planning to go to flite fest this coming year also so maybe I'll see you there!

Should have it done in the next month or so. I am finalizing my A-10 warthog right now and I will finish the P 38 when I'm done!
