Hi guys, I know I found some thread with this name - but It had some general info about plane liking , my question is about RCpowers planes. So far I build Mig29-V2 and F-22 V2 , I have seen many build of Mig29 V1 on our field and a friend of Mine build F-35 as I recomended it for beginer From what I saw I can say that

F-22 V2 I see very stable and big plane. but not so acrobatics oriented.

Mig-29 V2 is very Agile and it's my best plane so far , with reduced throws on 60-70% it flies great. Setup is 4x2 on both + Rudders. Since my flying skills are not so great - I barely use rudder

F-35 Seems very nice - bigger than Mig29 and Very floaty - it glides like F-22 but It has agility like Mig29 which is good I am thinking of making this with EDF and 4x4 setup

So my question is what is your expirience and what is best to build for my next plane - I know V3 is on the way , but Dave said it will be somewhere in summer so I have to fill some time till then.

Svetlin -

I have built and flown the RC Powers F35 V2, Mig29 V2 and Mig 29 V1.

I would say by far for ease of build and absolute blast to fly that the V1 Mig29 is my favorite. I have built two of them with elevons only, started off with the throws at about 70% and within about a week had the throws cranked up to 100%. I keep some expo, about 40% just to keep the inputs smooth. This plane does such amazing aerobatics, it is unbelievable! I am using the HK D2826/6 2200 Kv motor with a 1600 Mah battery, I get about 6 minute flights out of it, but I am hammering a lot of full throttle doing aerobatics and recovering from them when they don't go as planned...

It has pushed my skills to another level, I have only been flying parkjets since December after getting back into the hobby. If I get into trouble and the nose is pointing somewhat skyward, I just centralize the controls, hit full throttle and it powers out so I can recover and move onto the next crazy stunt! If you have a sheet of depron laying around and a good power setup for it, give the V1 Mig a try, you can get it built and in the air in a day and I think you will be glad you did!

I learned to fly parkjets on the RC Powers F35 V2, so it will always be in my hangar. The first one I built with elevons only and a Kf2 airfoil. I found that a great setup to learn on as it was floaty and forgiving, but from the sounds of your experience level, that might not be the best setup if you decided to go with the F35 V2 as you might get bored with it pretty quick.

My second F35 V2 I used the linked 4x2 elevons and ailerons (no rudders) with the Kf4 airfoil and the NTM Prop Drive 2700 kv motor. This is a totally different animal, it flies much more direct, like it was on rails, it has a little bit of floatiness at slow speeds (like for landing or if you want to do a bit of high alpha flying), but is much more crisp through the turns and rolls and with the NTM Prop Drive it flies really nice, I would never put any other prop motor than the Prop Drive in this plane, but just my humble opinion, I have never flown a plane with EDF.

I have never flown the F35 without Kfs, so I can't comment on how it would handle, but if you have any amount of wind where you fly, I would recommend the Kf4 setup, I have 6mm depron on top and 3mm on bottom, so I guess it is the famous F1wanabe "Kf 3.5", it handles much better in the wind and makes the plane much more crisp and the tracking much more direct.

I do like the Mig29 V2 very much also, it is far more nimble than the F35, I crashed my first one, but am getting better each day with my second one.

Hope this helps you in your quest to find something to keep you busy before the V3s show up!

Cheers,

Scott

my favorite rc powers planes are:
for aerobatics: extra 300
for speed: f35 v2

My favorite is the Mig-29 V1 and the the F-22 V1, IN THAT ORDER. I am hopeing that, if thay build a Mig-29 V3, it will be like a full fuselodge V1 with other improvements.

I agree with the mig 29 v1. And the f22 v1 is often overlooked, but it flies great with higher wing loading than the too- floaty-for - me f22 v2. After I got over the skepticism I had from the f35 v1, I built the f35 v2 and love it! Sure it's an easy beginner plane , but activate all control surfaces, put an Ntm prop drive on it and and the kf 3.5, get it a little heavier to get the wing loading up and it becomes a fast, stable and agile plane that you can confidently push and push hard! In this set up its an intermediate plane that still has great manners. Its great for experimenting with different mixes because it is such a stable platform. I was really surprised by how good it is as an advanced plane! For my second F35v2, I will take my time and build it really well, get it up around 32oz with all surfaces active, use the NTM prop drive for 40 oz thrust and get some real scale performance out of it.

T50 v1. it was the 3rd plane i built and ever flown with the f22v2 first and the f117v2 second. or maybe it was the fourth after the f18v2

incredibly fun plane. a good challenge for the experienced beginner. even with a small motor like the mjv3, it was still overpowered. build it without cutting out the levcons. control surfaces: aileron and elevator linked into elevon 4x2. 3mm kf4. when you get used to the plane, cut out the levcons and go to the t50 forum and decided it you want it to be levcons like the real thing or active. there is a plenty to read.
Nothing said I had to crash

Hands down the mig-v1, I have so many mods on it now that it almost doesn't even look like a RCP mig, but don't let it fool ya. it still performs like one
Cuz tooling around is just not my style of flying. Full stick and full travel control surfaces.

Cool, Svetlin, look forward to seeing your Mig V1 fly!

Well, I've built a lot of RCP planes (though I've avoided the Mig 29 v1 because I'm saving that for myself as a special treat ) and the one I keep coming back to time after time is the F-22 v1. At one stage I even had two of them (one elevon only on a 2s which I still have, one on 4x4 with rudders on a 3s setup that I still have parts of...).

You've got an F-22 V2 already but I assure you the V1 and the V2 just aren't the same plane even though they look very similar. They carry some similarities but there's also some big differences that make them unique in their own right rather than just two sizes of the same thing and the only plane in the RCP lineup I'd put before it is the Mig 29 v1.
May all your crashes be spectacular!
Planes: RCPowers X-31EB V1, F-18EB V1, F-35EB V1, F-22EB V1 x 2, T-50 V1, EzFly Bomber (e-foamy.com), FunFighter 600mm F-4u Corsair, Mig 29 V2, Mig 29 v1.
Currently working on: Mig 29 v3, F-22 v3 To Do list: Rodrigo's OV10 Bronco; I swear I will get there one day .

I like my f16 the first one I built.
Very fast flys like a bullet.
