I've built and flown this one ... good value in spite of that hideous canopy and a rather heavy tail. I have a build thread with tons of pictures on RCGroups. Google search Herb composite MiG-15. Mine has a WeMo evo on 6s in it, witn air retracts. Flies nice and fast, see the video.Bought this model some time ago and have now built it, I started to build it for a jet turbine Kollibri T25, but it turned out to be to tail heavy despite I used a thrustpipe.
Pro: Nice plane, looks very god seems to be quite rigid in construction
No building instruction
Paint on wings falls of easily, paint on ordinary covering, very bad sollution.
Twisted taiplane, this model wont be flying due to that.
Tailheavy construction, hard to get CG right.
Canopy has very bad fitting to fuselage whith a lot of trimming/sanding it can be solved.
In overall a dissapointing experience, I hope I just had bad luck, sending it back wont be an issue due to high shipping costs.
A good quality model. Well done.I just received my Mig 15. It is an amazing kit for an even more amazing price. Finish is first class. No wander that no one wants to build anymore. First impression is excellent, HK did a very good job packaging in a double box and lot of bubble protection inside. Delivery was expedient even though it was regular mail.
I would recommend this model kit highly.I own this kit. It's made by ProDesign. The kit itself is a 9 out of 10 The Materials and hardware are all of higher quality. Please Note: It dose not come with any instructions, but the build is straight forward with no sup-prizes. The canopy is very delicate and is held on with very strong rare earth magnets so be careful handling it. I did a building thread video, and will post it as soon as I can find the memory stick i loaded it onto. And as for the instructions I have the F86 manual that was produced by the same company and is very similar and I used the CG location witch seams to be good and yes I fly it with 2 3000 3s batterys with electric retracts it will take off from a paved runway If it helps I will scan and post the f86 manual If there's any interest.
