MiG 25 Foxbat Fighter Jet Rocket
I just finished this Mig-25 Fighter Jet project this past W/E.
I took it to a Boy Scout meeting on Monday past and Harold and I did a presantation to the Scouts on model rocketry.
They seem to like it.
The MiG is D/E powered. It's heavy, it weighs almost 4 oz.(120grams)
18 inch chute will provide recovery.
14.75" BT-55 body and with nose cone, it is 19" long with 3/32 medium hard balsa for fins.
I enlarged an Estes Strike Eagle for the engine pods.
I think it looks neat.
And no I have not flown this yet but I'm sure it will fly.

Finally I fly the MIG. I brought it to CMASS today. I did not have a motor for it but I was hoping to buy or trade for one.
Better yet I got one donated by a fellow CMASS member and new found friend Mark A.
He wanted to see it fly. As did I.
Thank you Mark.
Check out the pic and video.

I would if I knew how?
I would provide plans if I knew how to provide them.
I have parts and measurments which I will post but I use the TKLR method.
(Thats Kinda Looks Right)
I have a friend trying to build one now to see if he can clone one with what I gave him.

I wanted to find out if the MIG-25 would fly on a 'C' motor. So,a few months back I flew it on a 'C' motor and to my surprise it flew well on a 'C' motor. I did not get any video of the flight but it flew great! Better than I expected.
I flew it again in Maine and I got video but I was holding the camera in the wrong positon. Oh weller!
