Mine has not flown yet, but has had a few rides in the truck. So far, when I’ve brought it out, the forcast has been off by about 20 mph.

It's time for me to fly

Jim I'm pretty sure the Mig is a 60" Mig 3 fuse made by RCG member "Timmig". Not sure if they're in production anymore? I scored one a few months ago on the classifieds
Not sure on airfoil, I haven't gotten that far into the investigation yet. Probably the RG14 that's standard on most of the California PSSers?

I have Tims mold and the wing saddle was made for a RG-14 and any where from 56-60" has been built. They have a 10 root and 5.5" tip and there is no plans for this pretty basic build . we have tail paper templates and they are not floater weighing in at 90oz -110 oz depending on your building methods and weight of the fuse. It is a pretty good size fuse and can weigh almost a pound just for the fuse .
cheers

^^ Thanks Joe.

edit: Jim, mine is 56" span with the proprietary "Amigo" airfoil. (pretty sure it's thinner than RG-14) Root is 10" and tip is about 4". Mine is about 93 oz. and will get maidened in at least 25 mph wind.

You've got all the pertinent information-- mine is a 60" span-- and weighs 110 oz. It flies very nicely at Fermin in as little as 15-20 mph wind. It is a RG14--and is ballistically fast when the wind is above 25-30mph and it will really rock. It flies lighter than most heavies because it has a generous wing area and the tail volume is also very large for most slopers. Makes a fun ship Talk to Joe if you want a fuse and cores--he's got the mold.

Thanks. I will when time and the budget permits.
Nice model.

Mine flew for the first time today at the fest.
She flew great, fast and stable, great roll rate! She came in kind of hard though, and cracked the front of the fuse a bit.
Thanks Tim for your cool design, and thanks to Joe for the fuse!
Mig 3 maiden (4 min 8 sec)

Tom,
Great to see the Mig in the air. It flew so nicely and what a really beautiful piece of work.
