Take foam board performance to the next level.
Sleek, extremely fast, and exciting! Take foam board performance to the next level and enjoy hours of glorious, white knuckle 120mph fun.
Thanks for taking the time to build one of my designs! This one is modeled after the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3 and I hope you enjoy it! Please share a picture of your build with me via email - firstname.lastname@example.org

You’ve mastered the FliteTest build style and want a challenge

Will this plane work with the standard FT powerpod and electronics?
Yes. The Beef/Power Pack C/park 425 or greater will work just fine and the maiden video was shot using this type of setup.
How scale is the nnMiG 3?
The elevator was enlarged by a small amount, everything else is as scale as I could make it.
Is the nnMiG 3 a good plane for a beginner to fly?
No. It is an advanced build and requires a skilled pilot to fly.
I want to build the 120MPH version of the nnMiG 3, what do I need to know?
You’ll need an aluminum spar in the wing but no structural changes need to be made in order to achieve 120 MPH.
Can I use the SpeedWing on my FliteTest speed build kit?
Tips stalls at slow speed will occur. They aren't very bad and with very little effort you can recover.
Wind performance is great. There are no issues in the wind at all.
You’ll need about half throttle to launch and landing is not bad on the standard electronics. If you’re running the Tacon motor and 4s you’ll need to come in hot on your landings.
Rolls, loops, and inverted are solid. The nnMiG 3 has a very clean looking roll.
The large wing cord helps the glide slope but don’t expect too much out of the nnMiG 3 here, she wants to go fast.
SLOW SPEED PERFORMANCE
For the design, I’d say it’s not bad. With that being said the overall slow speed performance is average compared to a standard FT style wing design, but above average compared to comparable EPO foamies.
LOOK AND FEEL
The nnMiG 3 looks amazing with the red decals on the white body. The large wing root fairings and long nose are really eye catching features. It’s hard to describe the overall feel of the nnMiG 3 but the best way I can put it is that you can really feel the weight of the plane. It doesn’t feel floaty or impacted by wind. It just does what you control it to do. The controls are responsive and crisp and the plane has follow through. Inputs carry weight and you can feel it as you fly. It’s not something I’ve encountered flying DTFB planes before so it is a cool experience.
The nnMiG 3 is a super sleek, extremely fast, and exciting plane to fly. It doesn’t have any really bad tendencies with everything accounted for, but don’t expect a floaty trainer experience. The nnMiG 3 is an advanced build and will take an experienced pilot to fly safely and well. The standard electronics provide very good performance and for those daring enough the PROJECT Speed setup will give you hours of glorious, white knuckle fun.
Thanks for checking out the nnMiG 3! If you built a nnMiG 3 and enjoyed it please consider donating a few bucks so I can buy more supplies to make more great planes.
