  • Here's a vid of my Freewing Mig-21 with the RCGEEK centerburner installed.

    Installation was really easy. The leds are really bright and they are a great help to follow my silver Mig-21 in the belgian skies. I really love the flickering effect

    During my last 2 take-offs I was even a bit blinded lol

    My friends were impressed as well, they thought I had a fire leaking at the back of my plane during my first take-off haha

    This vid is a compilation of several flights, I did 10 flights in row with the centerburner

    Mighty good job Chris & Air-Jon did !!!

        Howdy and welcome to Hobby Squawk! The MIG 21 is a great flying bird! Paints are easy, the techniques are a book!!! After I locate it in my library, I will post a link to a book for panels and metal finishes and such... It is about 13.00 USD. Please stand by..... Jerry

                Hi Pat

                CG measured wheels up or down?

                • Wheels down, no hump or weapons/tanks attached.

                      • Never any fun flying alone... but some flight alone can be fun! Better flying in formation or dogfighting with friends! Here is a mix of both from the last couple weeks. I put an A3L gyro in my Mig now and its even better than before!!






                        I have way too many planes to list off... But I love to fly them all! the 80-90mm Jets are my newest addiction! Also check out my youtube channel for TONS of flying footage. https://www.youtube.com/user/gooniac33

                            Custom Mig21schemes are always unique and more interesting than stock. What scheme is that?
