I considered it, too, but how do you do this without messing everything up?

Per did you find out the stats for the fan? I did quick run on the stand awhile back.

LX 6S fan/motor =43.3amps 985 watts=3.3lb of thrust (Using a plush 80 amp ESC and a set of old 25c rhinos.)

I meant the lander one mentioned in the post, not the lx one!

Anybody found a good supplier for clevises? The ones that came with it look pretty brittle. I'd love to get some nylon or steel clevises, but all the local shops are baffled at the conrol rod size.

The closes I've found is .047 in size and that's to big. I'm not sure if they make them smaller. Still looking

After inspecting the clevises on mine, no way I can use them on my vital control surfaces. But I'm not entirely sure what to do yet.

I'm thinking of carefully sizing a set up with soldered metal clevises. I hate doing that because it always takes me 4-5 tries because I'm not a craftsman, but I think this might be the best way to do it. Is everyone that is flying just using the stock gear?

I guess, most. I fly stock and so far, so good. On the other hand, if you flip the MiG around and watch the two pushrods for the rudder function of the tv units, you will see that they BEND while operating. Not exactly beautiful. So there is something to be gained from using real (e.g. 2mm) pushrods.

Cheers,
Henrik

Searching for 1.25mm clevises?

No, I can't find any, either, alternatively you could try these with Z bends at the other end of the control rod, plus they'll be much more secure than nylon clevises:

Or the 845's here could work, although the holes may need enlarging slightly, it's easy. They're only alloy: http://www.shopatron.com/products/se...&submit=Search

Would the 2mm clevises work with the control wire that comes with the kit? What size is that wire?

Hi,

The wires are 1,2mm.

I replaced all of them, as on the left-hand-linkage for Flaps/Slats, the pin which goes in the the horn just broke off when I wanted to slip some tubing over the clevis...
I found that the clevises from Hobbyzone work like a charm, they only come in a packing of four clevises, need to my some...
I had to shorten the rods slightly, because the clevises are somewhat longer, but that's easily done by bending another Z just below the original one.
They even come already with fuel-tubing installed...

I'm using two times 3S 3600mAh, each 300g, according to the manual, I have the CG, but it feels horribly nose-heavy, will add a little weight in the drag-chute compartment...
Hendrik, could you please post a picture of the position of the elevator's leading edge at the fuselage when in neutral position for flight?

By the way, some manufacturers make it easy with the data on the CG, by giving *useful* data.
Other take the "scale" route and try to do it the way it's done in real-life airplanes...
But...
790mm from the tip of the Radome...?
Gotta be kidding me, how in heaven do you want to measure that accurately...?
The fuse's got such nice panellines that definitely are all the same with all of the kits, as all of the kits come out from the same form, so why don't the reference to such a line? Like the one that runs across the fuse just behind the black rectangular shape behind the canopy...? 30mm behind that one would be so much easier to measure than 790 from a tip that's hidden behind two curves that prevent straight measuring... And I personally don't like to shove that fuse up against a wall or something to have the first ding in the nose even before she's ready to maiden...

Had the strange case on flight number 5, that the right main-gear wouldn't extend.
After the belly-landing, it turned out that the tire somehow must've inflated since manufacturing...?!? Really, in retracted position, toward the center of the fuselage, there's about 1mm gap, toward the wing-tip, there's about half a millimiter missing, jamming the gear, which in turns makes the electronics think that it's already extended... Gotta dremmel some extra-room there...

Otherwise, my first flights were quite... uuhmmm... Unimpressive...?
Quite easy to fly her.
I have the Flaps and Slats connected to the original holes on the servo (2nd inntermost) and on the controlsurfaces on the outermost. Turns out, that until they're half-extended, they don't add any momentum to the plane, but already slow her down nicely. Full extension requires 10% of up-elevator for compensation. Slows her down nicely, though I did not land her in a crawl yet... Still somehow fear that the ripe cornfield underneath the final approach sometime will suddenly jump up and grab her...
What's amazing is how little impact those big throws have, especially from the elevator... (Elevator is on outermost from servo and 2nd outermost on elevator as I felt the throw to be too extensive...) I expected her to be quite more touchy...!

Cheers,

Daniel
