I have the general parts traced out onto Depron sheet .... just in case !!

Thinking about maybe an EDF modified version ? A 50mm with a decent 5000kv, 5 blade and 3S should get her going ...

No way with existing stock ESC - it cuts out with 4S

No surprise actually.

I will swap out later to a 50A ESC and see what happens ...

Just knocked up another Mig 29 in 6mm Depron ..... stiffened with 2mm CF rods.

Fuselage where G&G uses two foamboard sandwiched ... I used 3 Depron ... and then thinned where tabs engage matching holes.

I moved motor forward and used the common 2826 2200kv Turnigy motor ... but with a 5x5 prop ... I'm hoping to stick a 4S into this one ...
Funny enough my 6x6 prop was just a touch big ... so I must have made slight error in tracing / cutting. No worries ... 5x5 will be fine.





Then I altered servo position ... cut slot bigger and fitted 6x6 prop ... so back to 3S but I can always swap out to 6x4 and use 4S ..

Just need a couple of screw connectors for rods and weather to improve ...

Original G&G Mig 29 weighs in at 255gr + battery

Depron scratch version weighs in at 253gr + battery !!

I've tested the 2826 2200kv on 3S 6x6 prop and it kicks 22A

Drop back to 6x4 and she kicks 18A on 3S and 27A on 4S ... 4S 1600 weighs similar to the 3S 2200 ... so I have choice ...

The thrust on 4S is WOW !! I can't wait for weather to break and I can get out there with it !!

MIG 29 Assembly


Good afternoon all

I am new to this game. A simple question from a new starter.

How do you glue the carbon strip to the fuselage ?

It moves every time I try

Thanks in advance

Blimey ... is it a year ago this question was raised ??

My answer should have been a lot earlier ....... to be honest .. I have no idea !! I just set it up with a lot on high rate ... about 60% on low and a lot of expo to help if it was too much.

Thick CA (foam safe is a good idea to be on safe side).
