I think it says on the charger what the colour codes mean.
I've not got mine with me but that sounds about right.

I do have a thunder charger for other lipos I could use but I like the compact size of the stock one.

SilentPilot is right.

Green Blinking: Power and battery connected
Red Blinking: Charging
Red and Gread Blinking: Balancing
Solid Green: Full Charge
Both leds flashing rapidly: Error

If you think it's an error, check your power supply. Should be 12 Volts. Do not use a 6 volts adapter (Eflite use some with single cell charger)

Foam "filler"?


Had a little mishap a couple days ago, trying to avoid a garbage can while landing...

A marble sized chunk of foam was broken out, right at the top of the nosecone/intake. I have a large section of it but the rest was basically dust and blew away. Is there a good product to use for filling gaps in the foam when repairing?

I still need to hit it with hot water to see how much expansion I can get out of what's left, but I'm sure there will be gaps.

I use gorilla glue to fill gaps.
Wet one surface, touch together, add the gorilla glue and tape over it. The glue expands and fills any gaps. Be careful though, you don't want it expanding into the air ducting...

Gorilla glue can be a pain to sand off if you use to much. I prefer to make the repairs with Foam-Tac and fill any voids with light weight spackle. much easier to sand.

16000kv motor ???

If you are using the stock charger that comes with the MiG, this is the wall
adapter you should be using:

So, how big was the rooster-tail?

Hope she survived her first (and hopefully last) bath!

Hi all, well after many flights and no crashes, the Mig has proven to be a fun reliable little edf :-)

However, the front bottom foam section of the intake on my Mig is becoming a little 'mushy' from the constant sliding on grass (it has always been a belly lander).

So, a while ago I was reading this forum and someone had made a clear hard plastic 'shroud' to fit over the nose of the Mig.
I can't remember who it was that made it, or what page it was on, so I was wondering;

1. Does anyone know if these shrouds/covers ever became commercially available?

2. If yes, can someone please direct me to the page and/or member that had the covers?

Thanks for any help as I would like to protect the Mig from further wear on landings before the airframe fails.

Cheers

Hi RCBABBEL,
Well that wasn't the post that I remember, but it will do very nicely.
Thanks very much :-)

Yep---She took a bath!!!...I had a cross wind and was trying to spot land the MiG...The wind blew her over towards me---I would have hit myself had I not ducked......The MiG flew over my head and I attempted a forced landing before reaching the pond...No dice!!!...I went to power up and gave up elevator...I was too low and too slow...Snap left, correct, snap right, try to correct and SPLASH!!!...The plane was floating upright with the intake above the waterline...(It is strange to talk about a jet being above the "water line"!!!)...I fished her out with a fishing rod...

So far, all checks out well after a good drying out...

Thats good to know... If the intake was above the waterline and the motor was also above the water you might have been able to water taxi it back!
