Re: Mig 29 R/C Turbine Airplane

I wonder how long it took to build and can you imagine the cost.  Bet they got a real kick out of it Smiley

And just to round it off, a contribution from the model heli world

Something I'm into but not on this scale. Undecided

A lot of respect for these model aircraft pilots - how they do it without the "seat of the pants" feel and visual clues from the cockpit that pilots who fly in aircraft  I don't know.
We had a real Mg 27 in the skys around here today - the  Polish AF were at Leuchars airshow I'm told

Yes Mal the difficulty is reversing your instincts when flying nose in.
However that's nothing compared to doing this kind of thing

Re: Mig 29 R/C Turbine Airplane

Indeed - the rigid rotors allow them to fly inverted - and although many modern full size helicopters have rigid rotors - ( I think the Westland Lynx was the first ) you don't see them do that, except for barrel rolls and loops.
I only ever flew the old tech helicopters without rigid rotors - I think they are wonderful machines - they save many more lives than they ever help to destroy, what with air sea rescue, air ambulances etc etc.

Re: Mig 29 R/C Turbine Airplane

This is pretty good as well. Seen another movie of this model that is filmed so well that its not until you see it with its builders that you realise it is a model.

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
