Alfa Mig

There have been a few threads on this subject (see below). I just finished building my second mig and used info from the threads I just linked. Pay particular attention to attachment of the wing, especially with respect to removing paint from the wing attachment point (rubbing alcohol on a q-tip works wonders). There are plenty of posts with good modifications to this aircraft to make it a little stronger. Don't let the posts talking about the wings falling off scare you...If you follow the advice about the wing attachment you will be fine. The Mig is a great flier...I am certain you will like it.


You will be a little heavy on the total weight with that setup (especially the battery). I wouldn't worry about it as my Mig is nearly the same (except with the 5300 KV motor).



As to flying the Mig make sure you have plenty of room to land. I had three crashes with my first Mig and every one of them was a result of me compensating for the fact that the Mig really tends to stay in the air (on the last crash the tree won). Once you get close to the ground it seems like forever before it finally touches down.
