I'm so glad someone took a pic of my Mig flying and posted it. Not sure it is going to fly again. It may just get raided for spares.
I had such fun flying it at Hermanus.
Maiden and fly into pieces all in one weekend..
OK not quite into pieces but there was a lot of tape holding it all together by the end of the weekend.
I have been going through your build again for my next one.
I may even start a build log.
Scratched out enought servos, batteries etc.
I did find that I missed the rudder when I was flying it so I may add one.
I read somewhere that you have tried it but you thought you needed to increase rudder size a bit to make it effective.
If I do one I will just TLAR or LR@AL.
I got Simon, one of our members to put the plan on a single A0 sheet and scale it up a bit. He has also put this in a plot file so its easy for a printer that can handle plot files to print.
If anyone wants a copy let me know.
Pleasure Bruce!!...glad you are building another, cause they get better everytime!
Build a Mig with rudder, maybe it was just me that expected a little more response.
