Haven't flown since APRIL :shock: .............

You poor fellow. :cry:  You must be suffering terrible withdrawal symtoms. :(  

Has your doctor prescribed Methadone?
Try not to run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas....... all at the same time.

There you go with your sex,drugs and rock and roll again Keith. The life of a man of leisure. Ido know how you do it!!  :D  :D

The MIG looks greats John. I think the easy answer is big lift and more weight. Need to fly it fast as it was designed to fly. Even with a decent glider/PSS profile I would imagine it is difficult to get that sort of model to fly well in medium/lighter lift.

I would try just taping the inlets over as well. I've read in a few places that sometimes the air passing through the fuse can actually cause more drag than just covering the inlets.

not methadone Keith, straight up morphine in patch form :)

main  problem is I can't look up very well. I would  be OK if I could guarantee to keep the model at or below the horizon.

I've still been getting a bit of a fix by watching.I was at Retroplane and I'm still CD'ing NIMSA events. But it's not the same

Hi Joe

I will try all the suggestions mentioned on the forum and see if the Mig flys better, I will keep you all up dated on the progress. I hear there may be an odd F16 looking for a dogfight ?????  

Heading for the slope now, talk later.

Hey John
Your a busy man!
The Moss House Bar/B&B in Bunclody might be worth a look. 087-6438168
Trying to get the Aermacchi back in the air. She's been grounded for a while for new stab, rudder and ailerons. It's was thrown together just to get it flying.  Would like to get some paint on it as well.
Also have been getting my new CNC foam cutter up and running. Made a set of foam wings for my Wazeco which I'm trying to finish too.
The list goes on and on.....

Hi Guys

I am in the process of revamping my Mig 29 for the PSS event in March. I have cut new wings and given the model a new paint scheme, Which I will post as soon as the model is finished,however,  here are a few pics of an after burner system I intend to installed, which can be operated by the throttle stick, to give a flash effect like the real jet burners.



Afterburner on full throttle, gives a nice bright effect.



The same view, but from the end of my workshop.

I am not sure how bright the burners will be in daylight, however it should be interesting to see if it works :?:

Very good John, :clap:  installing a sound card would help. To hell with the extra weight! :wink:

A bit of weight won't do the model any harm Keith. In stock condition it was too light as a slope model
