Whole lot of UM jets out recently. First from HK (mig 15 F-86), 2nd from Electrifly micro F-86 (with landing gear, 4ch, tactic radio system) and now from HH Mig-15 (I feel that more UMX jets are coming)

Canceled my 1 hour old pre-order of the F86. I will take the MIG with AS3X! I have the new beast and know how the gyro system works and it is great!

I agree, should be interesting - which one will come out on top, eflite or great planes.

the GP video shows nice rolls, good loops and most important tame slow flight, dare say a "forgiving" edf

the eflite video just shows blistering speed! I fly small parks and lose space quick

I like slow cool aerobatics and extra power for easy recovery... so unless the eflite plane can do what the great planes plane shows on video, I will be getting the Great Planes - we'll see after reviews considering the price on both

I'm starting to think Horizon has put a hex on me.
Didn't want the original Beast, didn't want to move away from 1 cell systems to heavier micros.
I'm not interested in quadcopters nor EDF, micro or otherwise.

And yet I somehow have a Beast 3D and a mQX on order now, and that MiG is just too gorgeous..

Way to many airplanes!
Oooops, posted in the wrong Mig thread.... Will re-post in the official Mig thread. Sorry...

More questions, more questions! (Dang, the HH guys have my address on file, maybe I should stop!)

- It's been confirmed that the Mig use the Stryker battery, but just in case, does the Rx come with a better ESC? If so, how many amps?

- It's programmable (thank you, thank you, thank you!) but is it programmable enough to put in a Stryker (wing!!!!)? The Stryker is already awesome in the wind, but would be fun to see it with AS3X onboard! Though, no way I'm compromising my boomerangs here, they still have to work as good as they do right now....

P.S.: Any answers are now going straight to my original AS3X airplanes FAQ (Cannot change the name, but the Mig is now part of it). So I'm bugging you with all my questions, but hopefully, you also get less questions because all the information end up in one place, easy to find. Basically, I'm a bit like a communication agent. But don't worry, I won't take a pay check, just send me a one of those new receiver!

FAQ located here: AS3X airplanes FAQ (Beast 3D, Gee Bee, Hyper Taxi and now the new Mig 15
