Mig 21 scratch build maiden and finel

My brother Greg (FlyboyRC40) built this great looking Mig and had quite the work out getting it to fly right. He is an amazing pilot.

Really nice work both on the plane and the video. That last landing was nice.

Beautiful plane from what I could see it is very realistic looking. You really did nail that last landing.

Nice!

Was it a bit tail heavy on the first flight?.. It had that tail heavy look about it. If so your brother did well to bring it home in one piece.

J.P.F. ,to get the plane to lift I had to put a lot of elevator throw in, that made it very sensitive, infact it was to nose heavy, I had to move the bat back about 4".
