The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 (NATO reporting name "Fishbed")
is a supersonic jet fighter aircraft, designed and built by the Mikoyan-Gurevich
Design Bureau in the Soviet Union. It was popularly nicknamed "balalaika", from
the aircraft's planform-view resemblance to the famous Russian stringed musical
instrument or ołówek (English: pencil)
by Polish pilots due to the shape of its fuselage. Some 50 countries over four
continents have flown the MiG-21, and it still serves many nations a
half-century after its maiden flight. The fighter has the distinction of holding
a number of modern aviation records; it is the most produced supersonic jet
aircraft in aviation history, the most produced combat aircraft since the Korean
War, and it had the longest production run of a combat aircraft. It has been
estimated that more than 10,000 MiG-21s were built (source Wikipedia).
The edf 6904 fan, 69mm dia has been optimized to run on a 4S LiPo pack
with the 2W-20 motor, speed reaching over 150mph can be achieved.
Although this MIG-21 is a stable airplane, it is not a
trainer or first EDF airplane. This airplane is capable of serious aerobatics
maneuvers and very high speeds.
The construction is very easily so there is not too much
experience needed. This in not a plane for beginners, and you should have some
experience flying fast ARF's.
