Bruff I got everything, missing a couple of parts and I let RW know. Need the wings for the mig for sure

unfortunately could not find someone to build the prototype so I'm on it Steve you were one of the persons I considered but I was told that you were quite busy

I want this to be a 20+ cell airframe, my greatest concerns will be the CG it will have plenty of room for all of the gear & batteries.

the tailerons are relatively small and I may have to use ailerons ????

Thanks for thinking of me as a possible builder, but it is true that my hands are busy and covered in epoxy.

ME P. 1101 for awhile yet.

The Mig 25 is one those jets that sticks with me because back in the IC fan days there was a guy that use to smoke my Byron F-16 ( and old time favorite ) with one. It was built from wood and had a Dynamax unit and Rossi 81.

He was lighter than me , the jet was wood built, can't remember the kit maker.

It was a very good turn key ducted fan as I recall. I always wanted one.

This is one that you might want to do In glass some day.

Good work man.


P.S. Go with ailerons. I did with Haldor's Mig 29 and there great.

Funny that's exactly the plane & setup that Doug used to fly (at Mile Square Park he told me) .

He hides his age well.

My F-16 had an OS 91, man that was a big hulking machine. Flew it for 3 years and then sold it, wished I hadn't.

The Mig 25 might be a good home for my DS-51?

after the F-15 I felt this subject was great for a simple balsa ROG high power EDF.

1. its boxy
2. big exhaust
3. big intakes
4. very few curves
5. lots of long straight lines

more pics soon

LOL Joe BTW there is no beer in the magic magic.... but all of the other parks check out

It's going to take my time, I have found a lot pics of the foxbat after the cad work so there will be "minor" mods to the kit as I go along like all of the others before.

any other info on this plane will be appreciated
