mirage 2000 version 2.2

sorry guys for not posting much lot of work no play

here is what i started recently

this is probably one of the last Lahie Mirages you will see at least for another year as he only makes a couple of them a year, I bought the last 2

my first one, as some may remember was from the old days of 3300nmhi cells and weighed over12.25 pounds and generated 6 pounds of thrust.... flew fine but not a good combo for this type of jet.

now with lighter building techniches and lipos i think i can ger her down to 10 pounds with 8 pounds of thrust..... booyaa

here she sits next to my JHH F-16, which just got a real paint job and is not primer anymore and is sporting a rudder... what can i use that for

peace out

Yee-ha - cool. I see you got the wood wings too, that was my one complaint with the one I had, the glass wings were a bit sturdy

well CT seeing you build a new large edf every month was getting on my nerves a bit LOL


those glass wings were brutal! im goingto be using this product (.007) to cover the wings instead of glassing them should save a lot of time, sanding and priming. I'm also not going to make the wings detachable, but i will add a rudder.

i did it the quik and dirty way by glueing them to a CF tube as the L.E on a straight wing, but it should be the same deal. But I always lay glass flat on wax paper, or just wax the slab of granite I have around here, and just lay it on that. If you got a bagger its even easier. I would think if you did 1 or 2 really thin layers of something you would even be able to heat gun it around a L.E then just glue the rest.

Well, don't do the bottom one, it won't work The hinge pin needs to be burried over to the right for it to work correctly. I like that style, more work but it looks nice and has less drag.

Yes BUT, that is a big plane. The TE is about a 1/2" thick and you need considerable elevon throw. By the time you put at least a 30 degree bevel on the elevon the gap is huge.
