  1. The first time that i did a rudder roll was by accident but then I loved it, so I do those rolls more often now, fun to watch them...

    Yes! Fun to fly, fun to watch, and doesn't offer any nasty surprises.
    A perfect super stable 3D jet trainer.

    Finally time to enjoy it! With almost everything set (Slats are still missing !:)!) for optimal High alpha.

    Unfortunately, the fall is here and it gets darker... "Sunset at seven". :-(

    Are you putting helium in your planes to get them to float around like that? Nice flying.

    I am in the process of building the mig 2.88. Does anyone have an option of where the pivot should be on the active canards? Should it go in the middle of the control surface or forward of middle. From the pictures I have seen on this thread I have seen both.

    Repairing the Mig 2.88.
    I was getting a bit too bold and too low and ended up not pulling out of a loop in time and nosed it in I actually crushed the nose and broke it all the way through the middle were I put in the pivot for the active canards.
    Here are some pictures of the repair. IMG_0001.JPG IMG_0002.JPG IMG_0003.JPG IMG_0004.JPG IMG_0005.JPG IMG_0006.JPG IMG_0007.JPG IMG_0010.JPG IMG_0013.JPG

    Nice work Jim. .. no worse for wear.

    You use much the same approach to repairs as I have. Glassing, a little bit of foam and white glue can fix a lot of sin.

    Re-maiden done. A bit of tweaking the trims. This is also the first flight with a new radio so setups were all off. I'm using a 3 blade pusher prop on this plane which has a reverse torque roll so I needed to also get used that again.

    Had to revisit this thread and post a few comments
    2200 batt. 3000 kv motor.
    Cracked mine up about the same way as jim. Lol nothing a little hot glue won't take care of. Was running this same power setup in the su37 mk2 and loved it.
    For some reason this build was lighter, but ended up more sluggish. And comes in hot when landing. While on the operating table I noticed something rather key to performance. I.M.O.
    If you look at the difference between the two planes you can see just how much clean air the prop is getting on the su37, vs the Mig 2.88.
    The difference in fuse diameter is the same all around. Going to try a small mod to see if my theory holds up.

    The mig 2.88 has a lifting body fuselage whereas the su37 has a clean bottom open between the nacelles which does have an impact. Also, we kept the fuselage deep so that the prop does not strike on landing - really helps with durability especially when doing low and slow, or like Jay does, low and fast flying. But, that extra drag will not give you top speed. If you're after top speed, the drag associated with the delta canard plane is not the way to go. But for a true parkjet, it doesn't get any better than the mig 2.88!

    Couldn't agree with you more, Greg. I use a 2600 kv with 6x3 and 40a esc. It goes fast enough for me! I have to say that this is THE plane for honing skills and modding. My canards aren't active and are looking a little war torn but other than that, this is the "fly every time I go out" plane.
