    Wow, Lars, that is the most scale looking flight I've ever seen!! WHen I was visiting Jay, the one thing I immediately found was that this plane can fly slow and low really well. But you took that to a whole 'nuther level!!! Beautiful! I'm wathcing this again...

    Catching up i think...

    This honestly is one of the more attractive MiG-29 parkjets going right now. Not a simple build at all but she offers the complete package of performance, agility and looks.

    Truly impressive work Jay ... you've exceeded our expectations with this one.

    I also see a fresh canvas to decorate

    Thanks Greg! Yes, this is a great aircraft just like the F22! with a lot lift and stabillity built in to it, I really like the fact that you guys at FRCF are into BWB-design, like on real fighterjets. Now I don't have to do it myself anymore! Which I had to do before... The BWB provides so much extra lift and stability. Actually, this aircraft weighs as much as the first one, still 110% scale. I've used a mix of 6 and 3mm foam instead of the previous one that was just built of 3mm foam. The wires are shorter now when the ESC and the batteries are closer to each other. So that's why I managed to keep the same low weight on this one too. Looking forward to the next one with BWB design!!

    I like it sharply Tom!
    Now it will remain on the plane even if you crash it!
    Which I hope not will happen!

    I have put my third MiG aside for a while.
    The FRCF HighLander need to be adjusted a bit before its Maiden on the lake...

    Anyway.., here are some pictures from last week's MiG job, the Emax motor installation, same method as before. "Easy on, easy off" motor mount out of 6 mm balsa and two ties.

    You're only one of a few guys i know of that use zip ties on various parts of a build.

    I had always worried about things letting go or vibrating loose on me and why i always stayed with the more old school methods after a fashion.

    It impresses me how well your stuff stays stuck on there.

    Tom,
    You're not too old for a try! :)
    I love zipties!! They have actually saved many planes for me, the ties goes before the motor mount and surrounding foam if the propellers hit something hard, branches, the ground... all since the RCP F-22 V2 catapult incident:D back in 2012. Last but not least, they help reduce weight, instead of heavy metal screws, epoxy etc.

  12. You know if you happen to crash into yourself those could leave the impression you were bitten by a vampire, ;) just sayin, so if somebody is coming at you with a wooden stake you better run. :D

    Can some one tell me how many degrees of deflection they have on the elevons ?
     
  15. Had out the FRC Mig 29, back to 5X3 props instead of the 5X4.5 ones, bumped up the timing and increased the throttle response and much better out of the hole.

  20. Well quick vertical thrust test on these three new props. The Gemfan 6 blade great thrust and hovers the plane at less then 50% throttle but heat in the motors was quick. Tried the Dalprop T5045 3x5x4.5 , good zip to it and really surprising good thrust, hovered the plane around 50% throttle and motor heat wasn't to bad. Then the Dalprop Q5040 4x5x4 , neat sound and great thrust, probably hovered the same as the triple prop but I think a little more zing to it. Motor heat was slightly warmer.

    The APC 2 blade props the 5X3 is way better then their 5X4 or 5X5.45, even when I bench tested those APC props the 5X3 one tested the best. But with the Dalprop it feels way stronger. ;)

    Going for the 4 blade 4X5X4 prop, part of my pick is that it is blue to so it matches the plane. ;)
