As soon as I can get a 90mm MiG-17 in my grubby paws, I’ll send you a SEG photo! :-)

I’m hoping that the CG will be better planned than it was on the Freewing F-86. They’d miscalculated the MAC of the Sabre’s swept wing. Had to do a bit of surgery to get the battery moved back for enough so that Sabre would reliably rotate on a grass field. I’m sure that HK/Avios won’t make the same mistake, right??? :-)

90mm fan. What’s the wing span, or scale?

Wings come off with 4 screws and wing connectors. You'll be able to get it in your car with ease

Plenty of room for a battery and rotates with ease! Landing is close to glide in with perhaps a click of the throttle.

Thx.
Like the full scale Mig 17, I believe the landing
Gears of this new Mig 17 are good for rough
field, grass field.

If it can take my landings then it can take your landings. I'm fairly average at best

You'll be able to pass the landing gear down to your kids. Tough as nails

Perhaps.

If there was an ARF version there won't be many. When they are gone they are gone.
