Introducing the Glue-N-Go series of foamboard kits. Easy to fly, easy to assemble, and exceptional value!
This fantastic Mig 29 is not only fast, it's a stack of fun. Made from colorfully foamboard, it has been laser cut for precision assembly and for a great scale outline look in the air.
Supplied with carbon fiber reinforcing, metal push rods and a plastic motor mount, all it needs is some servos, a motor, esc, your receiver and a 3S pack and it will be perfect for those flying days when you just want to tear a hole in the sky.
Motor: 2208 - 2212size 2000-2600kv
Servos: 9g x 2
Prop: 5-6 inch
Battery: 2200mah 3S
Impressive model very accurately cut from the best foam I've ever come across. (what is it? where can we buy it? it bears no resemblance to HK's foamboard)
Models flies well but is rather a triumph of thrust over drag. The performance was much improved by gluing and rounding a balsa section along the leading edges and widening the slot to take a 7 inch propeller.
Had to fit elevon hinges after one detached in flight, but great fun to fly. Very aerobatic and does the "snake bite" just like the real thing.great value for lots of fungreat winter hackawsome i can use all my lipos on this from 1000mah to 2200mah and it flies wellthis plane is a blast w/ the 1950 fun fighter motor, 2 tgs 9g servos, turnigy plush 40a esc, a 4 S 1350 battery and a 6x 5 prop. also tried a yellow stabilised rx that works well too!
flies fast and slow well. carry a little power all the way to landing or elevons become ineffective. best 24 bucks ive spent in along time! no heating of esc or motor on 4s but get a 65 or 70 c pack as my 70c pack does warm up a little. also this is not your typical depron or foam board it is much tougher. tape over your live hinges on the elevons.Now that i have finally built this kit, i thought it'd be a good time to review.
I usually work with depron sheets so this foam board was a new challenge. It's nicely cut and all pieces fit together very well. I'm running mine on a 2200kv motor on 4s with a 5x5 prop. The plastic motor mount provided help with this setup as it grips to the foam board tightly. I've added rudders and ailerons that help a lot with acrobatic flight and flat spins etc. The only part that is a negative with this kit is the paint to control surfaces - You'll have to remove the painted areas where you tape your surfaces or they'll easily come off as the paint separates from the foam board a little too easily. Apart from that, it's a decent kit and saved me cutting out from scratch - i'm getting old i think! If you've built before, this will be a simple build. If not, some common sense and caution must be applied.Looks great and flies well.
The hinge cuts on the elevons were too deep and caused one of them to separate in flight. Thankfully I managed to recover the aircraft with no major damage. Reinforced the hinges with tape and it now performs as expected.I love this plane! Super durable! It has taken many rough landings. Easy to build (Gorilla Glue) It works well with a 2204 2100kv motor and a little 4 inch triple blade prop. With this little 4 inch prop, the blade tips don't extend below the body, so they cannot hit the ground. It flies with a 1000mAh to 2200mAh 3cell.
The CG needs to be a little farther forward than recommended.
Also, I gave mine a bit of a nose-job. (trimmed it back a little)
I would prefer to have pull to positive on the control surfaces, but it still works as is.
Also, this foam is amazing! I would like to buy some sheets of it!This plane is fun to fly, it can fly very fast but it can fly slow as wel.
I have got a 2600kv motor in it and use a 2200 3s lipo from turnigy.
You have to use a lot of expo on it because the elevons are sensetive at speed but you need the bigger throws at low speed and landings.
I am thinking to ad a rudder funktion to it.Test flight of Hobbyking Mig-29 foambard kit.
