That is assumed. But since we're going to get down to the obvious, let's go ahead and share the entire formula:

If: Multiple Cold Beers > Cold Beer > Glue > Sliced Bread Then: Airplanes + Multiple cold Beers = Glue.

The sliced bread is for the hangover the following morning.

How 'bout this higher math:

Sandra Bullock (Virginia girl) > Cold Beer > Glue > Sliced Bread

I always found a bit of light weight packing tape on the tear line to be stronger than reglueing.
That is how my Mig is right now. No perceptable weight gain. Wings are tight.
So to conclude:
Lightweight Packing Tape ≥ Glue
Airplanes ≠ sliced bread
Cold Beer > Warm Beer
Too Much Beer = Hangover = Tylenol

YIPEE!!!...I got my Mig in today!!!.....

I did get in one flight before dark---I placed the MiG on the asphalt and I'll be darned if the little bugger didn't practically take off by itself!!!...She needed right aileron trim as well as a lot of down elevator trim...The need for a lot of elevator trim surprised me as the plane was nose heavy according to the instructions...I rolled inverted and the plane needed a ton of down elevator to fly level...The elevators themselves looked to be level...

Anyway---I'm PLEASED!!!...Loops from level flight are easy...Rolls on low rates are plenty fast...The speed of the plane reminded me of my Beast...She should be a tad faster without the gear...The battery I used was a 35C 300mAh 2S NanoTech...VERY good power...

I need to sort out the CG issue and the need for down trim...The elevators look to be level but as I've experienced with other UMX planes the elevator settings can be very sensitive...Only a few degrees can mean the plane flying level or climbing...

I've also gotta say that this plane flies way better than my GP Sabre...The Sabre without AS3X keeps you on your toes---You have to be on the sticks the entire flight...The MiG is relaxing to fly---Almost like cheating!!!


Glad to be part of the MiG crowd

Kevin

Unfortunately, Sandra Bullock + cold beer equals divorce.

Who gets hungry for toast? Just the idea makes me thirsty for beer and then there's the whole Sandra Bullock thing and then I'M toast!

Kevin - congrats on the mig and the maiden. You will love her. There is nothing cooler than a low high speed pass 2" off the deck!

The maiden of the MiG went extremely well...Can't wait for more flights!!!

That's a really nice pic, Kevin!

Long as we're showing off our wives. I'm 54 and she's 50! I don't know who she looks like. Just herself, I guess, which is fine by me!
