  1. Nice Video Markus... now you just need a faster plane to keep up with the guys :-)

  2. Well done Markus, The chinkie cam works ok!
    Looks like plenty of other models flying at the same time.

  3. Nice vid Markus.
    When you guys build migs, is there standard scale you guys stick too.
    My first was as per plan but at Hermanus I heard that you guys scale up a bit.

  4. Hi there Bruce,

    Yes we did scale the plan up a little.

    Our home build went the 1320mm size. This was because it was a convenience versus wing loading scenario. We have built them at 1500mm which reduced the wing loading even less but found the size a tad cumbersome.

    I’m sure you saw the 3m Mig fly at Hermanus? This size had an even less loading.

    But build to whatever size suits you……and your car! J

    Good to hear from you!!

    Keep us posted!
