Fan-Tastic MiG Ready!

Well I finished painting the MiG-15 it came out ok...
I also show the 3 diff. battery packs I'll try
they are: 8 GWS 150's, 2 Qualcomm lithium pack and 8 cell nmh which Fan-Tastic mentioned in the latest up grade.
It's raining here in N. VA this after noon so can't fly until tomorrow!

PS. Sorry for those nasty looking gaps in the wing fences...
But I didn't play with it much used 1/32 ply and didn't want to add any more weight...

Hi mtflyr

Great job
Your Mig looks very nice.
Hope you'll fly her soon...

Here in France it's a bad day for foamies too..., it's so hot today... the foam could melt...

good luck

Olivier

Well inbetween the rain I got to fly my new MiG...
First 3 flights unstable but flew wapped into the ground...
Crunched the nose but no real damage just pulled it back into place.
All flights using the Teig 8 cell NiMh 280 cells on the 4th. I just let it fly and climb out...
Wow! It was really cool flew for nearly 3 min. 150-200' AGL
I landed and checked the motor... She was hot to the touch as I was at full power+-...
Next flight was using 8 cell Nicd GWS this must be a bad pack as it craped out real soon
Next flight motor still hot was with 8 270 Nicad pack I had and once again I had a great flight 150-200+ AGL.
So at least so a least for me the 8 cell NiMh and Nicads worked the best. Also lots of sound... cool
