Mig over Brazil

Mig 7 fever has hit Brazil!
I received a mail from Jean Rodrigo with a couple photos of his first Mig build. We think he did a fantastic job. He even got our team Mig racing logo perfected. Unfortunately I do not have more details such as All up flying weight, engine size ect. Maybe he will send us some more pics and info at a later stage.
Well done Jean
Team Mig

Swap  Meet
Well I haven’t been here for some time now. Apologies for that…
Anyway the Swap Meet is all but a faint memory by now. We had lots of fun and it was a great success for our club so much so that we are going to have a Swap Meet at least twice a year.
