Another FlyFly Mig-29 Fulcrum kit?? When the first one is not even completed!!??
Well Hobbyking had some on sale and.....

I decided - at that time - that I would make one as 'full house' - the original No.1 one. And then this second one as a simple Taileron only hand/bungee launcher. Mainly because operating off a grass field makes it much harder to ROG, plus very punishing on landing gear.
So for this one, it is Tailerons only..... but I will add landing gear also(!!), to only be used for LANDING. Take-offs will be bungee or hand-launch, depending on the final AUW. I will use a FRsky S8R Flight-Controller RX to allow TX/hands free launching too, and thus I will be able to do two handed launches to assure it is a good and fast/strong launch!

For the Landing Gear, it will be the Freewing Su-35 nose gear, which has a trailing link suspension action, and some Hobbyking trailing link main gear oleo/wheels.... which are all very useful on grass. It will only need the 'Medium' sized Retract units, with 4mm on all oleos. Mediums are fine for hard runways too, but you really want the Large size retracts, with 5mm pins, if operating from grass. Which will be what the No.1 Mig-29 gets.

I will add a wing spar (of course!).
I MIGHT even WBPU/Glass it. That can be the last thing done... or not done... once I know the AUW region it is headed for. I want to keep it under 3.0Kg.

It will use my Ex-Su-35 HET2W30 (2200kv) driven Wemo Evo's, on 7S as per the Su-35 used. But...Continue Reading
