Please look at proper SCALE landing gear for these jets. The landing gear (retracts) on some early photos for the new line of jets, looks WAY TOO SMALL for the aircraft.

The sad thing is that we have this incredible runway on the former NATO airport Neubiberg which is freely accessible for anyone but you may not fly there :-(.

Cheers,

Can I ask then a question unrelated to the MiG-29?

Last year I saw photos from one of the industry shows of an LX Panavia Tornado. Is LX planning to release the Tornado in the future? Very cool model.

Thanks,
Mike

Yes, except the main wheels do look too small with the wrong strut shape, and the canopy shape is wrong. Apart from that, looks interesting.

This plane surely looks nice, cant wait to see it in person in the shop from ready2fly.

I think they will get it in shortly...but not sure which one to pick...the mig-29 or the f-22...both very tempting...

ahh who cares...I just take both models

Regards

Neversommer.

  • Much better TV nozzles, with a plastic ball inside, more like the Su-34 from Freewing
  • Independent servos for the elevators and the TV nozzles
  • No sloppy linkage to the TV nozzles, but short, straight pushrods
  • Flaps with slats, which hopefully allow a lower landing speed so that it won't be damaged so much on those "perfect" landings
  • Ailerons independent from the slats and independent from the TV nozzles
  • Electric retracts that don't rely on servos
  • A hopefully better design for the parachute attachment or not :-)??
  • More lights :-)

Missing are for me:
  • Carbon fibre spars for the main wings, a must on the Su-47 with its flexing wings.
  • Bigger wheels.

Unclear are for me:
  • I don't believe yet the claimed weight of 2000 grams. The same figure was given for the Su-47 and I think it is practically impossible to reach. The Mig has more Servos and more functionality than the Su-47, so it will probably be heavier.
  • Unclear is whether the EDF fans are so bad as they were on the initial Su-47s (see the pictures I posted in the Su-47 thread).
  • I also don't believe yet the claimed thrust of 2.500 grams.

But still, big congratulations.

Cheers,
Henrik
