Some of that nose lead can be converted into cockpit detail, pilot, etc...

Absolutely incredible design and build!....you have proven that the materials can turn a large model into a tame aircraft....great job, Sir!

Yes Ron.

Nose gear doors, huge pitot spear and cockpit area will reduce amount of lead.
I'm surprised the flying qualities. I remember seen some flight videos of model MIG-21, but this doesn't feel the same.
I hope there is readers who can share their hurdles with model MIG-21. There must have been some obstacles, even if plane have been built from a kit.

I do not have one and have never flown one, but having seen a few over the years in video and in person I've never seen any model MiG-21 that looks to fly even half as well on their 20th or more flight as yours did on a maiden.

May be of interest to some, Project Have Doughnut. The US did research on a 21 back in the late 60's, bit of reverse engineering.

Mig 21s fly amazingly well. I had a FB with a Jet Central Eagle and did several test flights on a friend's Airworld. Fast responsive and easy to land.

I suppose there is no reason why a MiG-21 wouldn't fly well, especially at a good weight.
Not sure if I have mentioned it but I consider the MiG-21 F13 one of the most graceful aircraft shapes. The later versions with the thick spines not so much....

Does this one have the power and structure to go faster?
It has been a while since I saw a full size one in the air - but the maiden video made me wish for a little more speed.

Engine is 250 Atom from Jet Italia.
Good to hear about positive experiences and flying characteristics.
I have no idea what I'm doing/dealing with, since I have done only one flight.

At last I spendt some time developing retract electronics REV2.
Most of the HW-stuff is built as prototype and tested in lab.
Next phase is to test this fragile prototype with actual landing gear and try to simulate some of the strains, that air flow and G-forces bring to the system.
