Idea
6mmFlyRC Profile MiG-29 with Simple Thrust Vectoring (with plans)

Here are plans for a profile MiG-29 Fulcrum with a simple form of thrust-vectoring.




The design uses much of the same ideas as my F-22 Raptor. This construction features an openable hatch for easy access to the battery and electronics, as seen in this picture of my F-22.

This plane can be built with only tailerons, but I have drawn out markings for ailerons and rudders too. If using both ailerons and tailerons they can be coupled together for easy servo installation.

Data

Wing span: 72 cm (28.3 in)
Length: 101 cm (39.7 in)

The dimensions for the slots and notches are made for 6 mm depron. You'll have to modify those if you build in other materials.

Plans

Plans for this model in PDF, Google Sketchup, and AutoCad formats, can be downloaded from http://rc.tomhe.net/mig-29. The tiled plans should be printed centered at 100 %.

UPDATE: This model is now available as a kit from 6mmFlyRC. If you want to save some time you should order a kit from them.

UPDATE: 6mmFlyRC has put together an instruction guide with lots of pictures that guides you through the build process.

UPDATE: This plane is now also available as a kit with a power combo (motor, ESC, and propeller) from Grayson Hobby.

I was so happy with your F-22 design that I'm going to build this one too. Unfortunately I don't have time in near future, but maybe in next month.

I will give it a try,I will cut foam later, I will send pic's as I go, very nice plans and good size. Maybe down the road I might try a 40" WS if this is as good as the SU-27...

Wow, you're fast! I've just sent my plans to a shop for laser cutting. I'm hoping that they are ready on Friday.

They are as long as there are control surfaces in the prop wash. Not all mid-mounted models have that.

I've decided to make a 1/2 scale version since I have a spare 3mm depron sheet and I want to try a pocket size fighter I'm planning to use aileron/taileron linking.

I ordered following setup from UH today:

AX 1806N 2500kv motor (19g) This motor should give 30-40W
two EM 4.3g servos
Pulsar 6amp esc (6g)
Corona Synthesized Receiver 4Ch (4g)
That's 37.6g without batteries and I already have 2s 1000mAh (53g) and 750mAh (39g) LiPos

I'm aiming to 120-150g AUW. That's 4.25-5.30 oz.

This will be very interesting. I've also considered making a smaller plane, maybe suitable for indoor flight.

I also bulded f22 and it was so great that now im building mig too
My F-22 is 50% sized version and powered with medusa 4000kv motor, 3x2 prop and 3s300mah lipo.. flying weight around 100g
But now i wan to test make mig around 70g useing 2s300mah lipo and 9g purple motor from unitedhobbies.. im also wondering to "modificate" mig 29 to su-30,33 etc.. so it means that im going to put moveing canard wing to it
So if F-22 was great doing some sick aerobatics, i can only imagine what this going to be..
