Mewgun, the "pipe" direction, or "flute" direction is the direction of the channels that are on the inside of the correx (or coroplast). The circle with lines on the plans tells you to orient the correx the same way.

Called to all organizations who sell сoroplast.
We have not sold 2mm ... Only 3mm or more.
Is it possible to build all of the 3mm model?
How does it affect the flight characteristics?

Yes you can build from 3mm.
The wind must be stronger!

Hi All,

It's been a while since I have done anything with the Mig, today I got myself a copy of the original size plan........ now for the questions..... oh come on you lot, I can hear the groaning from here!

Do any of you slope with the original sized Mig and what was the reason for the 16% scale up as posted on page 47? just curious

I am starting the original size Mig over the Easter break.

Sean, I know you are a busy man, but next time you or one of the fellas you fly with over there build a new Mig, could you please do a video for getting the C of G.
I think I am close, but it is sometimes easier to see it or how it's done.....no pressure.

Thanks and Regards
Ian

JSMR,

You are correct, it is roughly the original span, I was wondering why it was scaled up by 16% from the original, was it done just because you can or is it to do with the flying characteristics of the plane?

Regards
Ian

My electric is 1170mm span.
I got to the span from the specs of the motor......watts, weight and type of flying. I think I have it right, plenty power for a long enough flight......at 80% batery consumption.
For the slope, it was a matter of managable size for the average car/wing loading/number of wings out of a sheet/ flying site.......or should be the condition of the pilots eye sight!!
I built a few of the original size. Nothing wrong with them, fly great!!.....but as you know, the smaller....the more twitchy, which is good if thats what you want.
I will do a video clip of the CG for you! I have cut out all the parts to build a Mig, not sure I will get to build before Ironman South Africa 2012 on the 22nd April, (not that I'm taking part), but will look at explaining on one of my current models.
Hope I have answered a few of your Q's.

Here's a clip from yesterday's flying once the wind had dropped.
