This is for Plans only.
TEST PILOT : Trivajuve
The Mig 29 was designed to accept either a single pusher or twin 50-55mm EDF.
Please note that even though this Mig-29 flies ok as it is, the wing has some anhedral on it like the real plane. The EDF version behaves with neutral handling. The pusher variant has a higher CG and is not as stable in the roll axis, so depending on your ability you may want to add either some weight added to the belly or a flight stabiliser to give a more neutral handling characteristic.
What an amazing Parkjet, construction guide very easy to follow and she went together in a day or so allowing glue to cure.
Fantastic plan designed by Craig, my intention was to whack twin EDF’s in her however not paying attention she is designed to take 50mm and not the 64mm i thought i would put in her 🙂 ohhh the excitement (i did size her up thinking i could squeeze them in …. lol no chance)
Had a quick chat with Craig about my situation, took advise and the decision was made for me, pusher it is.
Sooooo glad i did, slight concern was the Anhedral fuselage/wing design which take’s into account holding 2 EDF’s in her belly for a neutral flight,
pushed on with the build and when the $$ matters…..Anhedral.. ?? that didnt matter ! As soon as she was in the air.. the thought never even crossed my mind.
she tracked straight as an arrow right out the hand, couple clicks on the elevator and she was flying on rails.
While rolling she seemed nice and straight (removes the Anhedral/ Neutral flight concern)
Loops . haha no problem
she will High alpha but i need some more practice to get the feel for her before i go there.
Very responsive on the elevator with massive authority on little throws
Ailerons same as above, suggest small throws or mix in some DR/Expo
this girl will spin, turn and go wherever you point her
emax 2205s Quad motor 2600kv
6×4 APC prop (will try others)
Maiden & 2 other flight’s on 3s 2200mAh gave her a good 5 mins each fantastic fun
Same motor and Prop set up as above
2 flights on 4s 1300mAh Dam shes fast
Fantastic pusher Jet
cant wait to try out twin EDF
