I remember one of the early videos saying the motor was screwed in which made for easy maintenance and swap out, but the fuse is glued together, so just like the Sabre it still needs to be sliced open to get to it.
Mig glued together? That would be a first for a HH ultra-micro. They usually simply use tape, or even the decals to hold the two parts of the fuse together. Will have to go watch those old videos again I guess.

RG, I just checked and lovetofly25 did confirm a while ago that his fuse 'clam shell setup', as he called it, was taped together.

I'll definitely try it on 3S and will more than likely drop to a 3 blade to keep the revs up and get some nice eflux going.

OK, I cut the tape/stickers down 1 side for your perusial. The nose wheel mount extends through top and bottom havles preventing me from flipping it right open to give you all a better shot. This is as far as i'm going on the inspection. It flys just tooo dam nice nice for me to damage it (sorry) . so far over 50 flights in winds from light to 20 kph, it really does handle the wind well. I know how frustraiting the delivery date is but...... its worth the wait.

Any new info re the Fagot's ETA?

(What's the likelihood that HH will put that nickname on the box.....?)

Dave,

Things continue to evole, including a President's stand publicly, etc. There is nothing related to the name or airplane BTW, to current political and social issues. Nor to cigerettes and English Vs. English seperated by the 'Pond'. So given it's May 2012, Ain't going to happen. Just saying......

Fred

PS Disney screens their animated videos and box art a bit more carefully these days too!

Well gay used to mean "happy," and "eating some nuts" used to mean "consuming indehiscent, hard-shelled, one-loculated, one-seeded fruit, such as an acorn or hazelnut." Not now. So they won't put that on the box. I'm sure the NATO name was probably assigned in the 1950's. Fast forward 60+ years later and it's taken on quite a different meaning, even without the additional G. Maybe they can get away with it on a static plastic model since there's not the R&D cost to recoup, and that hobby demographic is often older and less affected by the effects of popular culture? Just a theory. Anyhow, after watching this last video I'm not as impressed with the Mig as I was when it was first announced for some reason, I can't quite figure out why. Just doesn't seem as neat as in the HH promo videos. Maybe also in part because everytime I wait for one of these new planes, I just start getting tired of it before it comes out, then I don't feel like buying it anymore. Kinda like letting a food craving subside. But if they release an A4 next, I might have to pull the trigger.

Pretty much how I feel. I've had it backordered since announcement and I'm ready to cancel it and pick up the F86. I don't think its nearly as cool as the Mig is, but at least it released and already had a few batches ran. Seemed like that plane was announced and released it a good time frame. I could snag the Carbon Cub also instead. I'm a rather patient person, but it just gets old very quickly. I'm a die-heart HH fan, I just really really wish they would work on how they do releases. JMHO

Not a big difference.....and I'll be delighted if your info turns out to be more accurate than mine!

Dave, the German crystal ball's say later
However, hope this bird comes without trouble, I can wait

BTW..found that interesting video on youtube...the questions goes in direction of new models with As3X and Quique is smiling and announces more planes in the nearest future (where the heck is the smiley with long tongue ?)

Nice, very nice and thanks, Quique

Quique Somenzini shows the new feature - AS3X (8 min 6 sec)
