Thank you guys.

I edited post #1 in this thread to include a photo of the completed model in a pose like the one of a real Mirage 2000-c in flight, lol. Link: Model in comparison to the full size Mirage 2000.

Second a photo of the repaired nose cone with foam protector nose built in. Last a picture of the model next to the die-cast example I had to referance during the build.

Winds are not friendly yet, but temps are warm enough. Hope winds are supposed to die down in 2 days.

Beautiful work Fred! Looking forward to some flight video. You must have eagle eyes to even attempt this project! Your mirage is one of the nicest scale micro EDF I can remember!

Thank you Bret, you are too kind. My eysight keeps getting worse, and probably because I use 3x readers to build, and often also add a set of 1.75x on top of that! Double glasses, LOL.... More to come.

Thanks again

Fred

Amazing build, one of the best I've seen in the micro EDF subforum.
Also, thanks for detailing your build process, it will be very helpful for other who want to do something similar.
I can't wait for the maiden.

Thank you Sir, I am very humbled by such kind words.

I have been very Holiday busy. I did a few maiden flights outdoors in a field next to the house. Very stable, but a few launches were dumb thumb and i broke the nose off twice, once as a lawn dark. Very easy fix.

Tried hat cam video, but my Grandbaby was quite involved in the flight tests, so I got no good footage, sorry.

I want more power for sure so plans are to test my BimRC rotors I received. I am thinking to try the 4 blade on a HK Turnigy 1015, 2 cell, 22mm shroud. All that added weight might be OK but I don't think it would fit the airframe at 1/48" scale (brushless ESC alone is so big). Might need to enlarge slightly, or maybe I would go with a different airframe ( I love variety).

More later.

Fred

I`m glad you got it flying. That`s amazing enough, given the tiny size. Congratulations.

Hi Ken,

Hat cam video was a total bust. Been Winter time here, Holidays, and a Daughter moved out to her first apartment. I have not touched a model, Transmitter, foam, or even been in the shop for over a month.... Nice time off I must say, probably needed it. We will possibly try again come Spring/summer!
