Nice!

Seems that beefing up the tail really helps inverted flight

Count - WOW! I've been missing your posts on the Gee Bee thread, but now I can see what you've been up to - great flying. Loved the low inverted and precision rolls.

This little flying dustbuster is quickly sneaking up on the Bee as my favorite bird. It's wind handling is so much better that it opens my flying window even wider.

Question for the group:
1) What are you doing with the wires betweent the Mig and the battery? I tend to keep my battery towards the back of the tray, which doesn't leave a lot of room for the wires. I've been smashing them down and cramming them into the 1/4 inch space between the batt and the back of the tray, but I"m worried about them crimping/breaking. Any ideas?

I run all of my batteries -- 120 to 240 mah -- all the way forward in the tray.

With the lighter batts, I dial in a few clicks of down elevator.

Thanks Dave - I'll try that. For some reason I thought that was making her nose heavy. I'm running Hyp 240s and was having trouble going inverted, even after strengthening the horizontal stab. I'll try running them up front and re-trimming.

SLK,

Nice flying! I especially enjoyed the point-rolls and the nose-high spot-landing.

FYI -

To get the CG right in flight, my TP 325 Babbelbatts end up as far back as I can get them, while my homebrew Hyp 240s end up closer to the middle of the slot. If I mounted a Hyp 240 at the front of the slot, my MiG would be extremely nose-heavy.
