The Mig 15 was a shock to NATO pilots when first encountered due to it's advanced swept wing design, heavy armament and truly class leading performance. The Soviets had been engaged in advanced swept wing aerodynamic design since the 1930's and the Mig 15 used minimal captured German technology. The engine was a reverse engineered Rolls Royce Nene, which the UK government, for reasons still unclear, gave to the Soviets as a gift! The end result was the most widely produced jet fighter ever built, not to mention one of the most succesful, seeing service with and being produced by Eastern Bloc countries, as well as seeing service in Asia, truly a Cold War Classic.
If you are looking for a large scale EDF Jet with truly outstanding performance and flight characteristics, look no further. The fuselage is of a glassfibre construction, the wings are balsa sheeted/foam core. The paint finish, covering and pre-applied decals just ooze quality. The model features split flaps and is retract ready, with a host of scale accessories available seperately that will make you the envy of the flying field.
A 90mm Fan unit, fixed under-carriage and all hardware is included, electric or air retracts can be fitted if desired (sold seperately), your power train choice will want to be 6s~8s to get the best out of this amazing jet.
Hi guys, can anyone please tell me "real" weight of this model, fully setup with retracts and servos, but without the batteries installed? i am thinking of putting a small turbine in it, but need to know if HK's weight estimate is in any way realistic.
So where are the batteries supposed to go?? The whole nose area is filled with intake duct...the only place I can see is up in the cockpit, not much room for 8S? and a long way back, it will very hard to counter balance that big glass tail with the batteries only just in front of CG. Just my 2cents worth.
YES THEY engineer the jet well when there being built and there is very good room for the batters ,they have meny differant size batter(lipo) to fit your applications i have gone through this problem befor with very good outcome,dont weary you can do it. with a 90 mm fan you will need a min of 3300-3400 ,2 or 3cell each on sides of fuse with a series connector. about a 85-100 amp esc depending on setup of batterys
also i have run this fan unit with the turnigy WAR HEAD 1850kv 1100watts should get i only got 800 at this time ,not sure why yet maybe my esc,but its a good fan ,you may have to balance it a bit like i had to . good luck
i fly EDF and this looks to be high quality built jet, normaly the wings are built up wood ,sometimes the verticle fin is fiberglass as this looks to be, this is a 90MMsystem and looks to be very good ,i have the same fan in a F4 phantom ,and very happy,but that is a foam jet ,this is a bargain but the shipping well thats a nather story.
I have to admit I was concerned were the batteries would go as I intend on running this on a 9s setup. Now that the kit is sitting infront of me, I can see there is plenty of room for 8,9, or 10s. The glass job looks fantastic and the body doesnt have any signs of high or low areas. I havnt weighed this model yet. I intend on running it with an ARC 36 75 1t motor and a Turngey 120HV Esc on 9s. I ran this setup on my HK/Flyfly Mirage and got 144mph. I think this plane on 8s would easily beat 150mph but im going 9s anyhow. The wings are very true and the covering was applied by a true pro. Looks like its going to be a very fast and easy build.
I recommend it..)

This is a very! good edf. Flys like its on rails. Building was easy enough..though as with most edf kits, some minor mods need to be taken care of. I highly recommend it. Here's video of my second www.link
