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.

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 flight...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIEmYQZfBB8I 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..)
