    Hi everybody !
    I’m so happy with my MiG-29 Freewing with Afterburners from Frank Born, I flew with many different LiPo and what a beast, so beautiful in the air but so gentle and easy to fly, I’m loving it 🥰
    here is my maiden flight on my YouTube channel, if you want to share it on Friday live show it will be an honor 🤓 have a great week fellas 😘

      Here's something different... ;)

      Click image for larger version  Name:	KULBIT4.png Views:	0 Size:	1.02 MB ID:	285373

      This is a Kulbit maneuver, properly executed with the Freewing Su-35. It is a scale maneuver; yes the fullscale 30T thing does that too.

      Videos don't always make it full justice and many often don't really understand what they are seeing.
      It is NOT a very tight loop.
      It is the jet turning on its own pitch axis while it keeps traveling forward, which essentially means that for a brief moment the plane is actually flying backwards.

      To make this, I took still frames from a video that I will be publishing soon on my secondary channel (www.youtube.com/RC4ever) and stitched them together with Paint, matching the clouds in the background so that we can actually observe the real trajectory of the aircraft. It is not 'cheated', so to speak, although I smoothed the transitions for a more aesthetic-looking image.

      Hope you enjoy the stuff and actually try to replicate this with your own thrust vectoring aircraft! ;)

        Maidens done on the F-4 and F-16. Flew both several times and really like both of them and wish I’d got them sooner. Had to get some more flights on the Tomcat.

        Excellent Spencer, welcome to the F-4 and F-16 club, both sweet flying birds. Envious of your F-14. BTW, what fan do you have in the F-16. Just curious, as I put the 12 blade 4068-1835 KV inrunner in mine a year ago and I love it. Image you got the upgraded 9 blade 1900Kv inrunner in yours at wonder how well does it take off on your grass field (most of my flights are on grass as well)?

          The 9 blade and it was fantastic off the grass and I don’t have flaps programmed yet. Don’t really need to.

            The fall is a bit of a sad time of year here in Norway, knowing full well that winter is about to set a stop to our hobby for a few months. But it also delivers some pretty spectacular days, some with bright red and yellow colors, and like here, fog floating over the fields like wisps of smoke. Almost like a Japanese painting.

            Probably among the last flights of this year, before the mig goes back in the workshop to TV and other upgrades. This is just slow, graceful floating around in the fog - if you want fast action, look elsewhere :P

            Thanks to Johan for filming

              Had a great evening of flying with Chris Pry flying scale helis together. Had the unique chance to get both the Roban 800 Airwolf and my Medevac Bell 222 up in the air together for a few photos.

                Works for me, nice and relaxing, and the fog made it look like a pleasant dream. Interesting that the fog seemed to avoid the runway, you must have had a guardian

                        The runway is the highest point in the terrain, so that's probably why :D

                        Thanks! Agreed, Johan is getting pretty kickass with his filming and editing too. Fun to fly in a club with so many good film makers.

                          The heck with facts and logical explanations, I'd stick with the thought that you have a higher power looking over you.
