That was before the sun was fully up…I’m sure it topped 3 degrees in the end 😁
Only had three flights on the Mig, but one of my guys did 7 flights with his Rebel 2m!
There was no wind, so didn’t feel cold.

Couple of things I realised are important info after watching Jonathanís video.
The rear of the cockpit tub needs sanding/notching on the back wall of the tub to allow it to lift so the rail grooves to be parallel to the fuselage hatch frame. This fuselage frame lip also needs trimming to 10mm wide (back of mine ended up a fraction less so that the opening is equal in width all the way front to back. The back leg Jonathan almost completely removed should be sanded to 5mm across its width. The cockpit tub then sits hard against this setting itís position.




Lip going across cockpit 5mm wide

Rail needs to be parallel to the canopy lip. You can see on the right the tub has been sanded.
