The Mibo J-29 Tunnan Gen 3 faithfully recreates the J-29E/F version at a scale of 4.8:1 which makes for an impressive sized model with a wing span of 2.291 meters and a fuselage length of 2.13 meters.
The Gen 3 kit has been considerably modified compared to Gen 2.
The following have been upgraded:
A great care was taken to provide a high torsional rigidity to the upper rear section of the fuselage ( fin/ stabilizer area ).
However the all up weight of the model is low, with 14 to 16 kilos depending on your powerplant choice.
The model is designed to use our B100F or B140F turbines and has plenty of room for the installation of your engine and accessories.
The Mibo J-29E/F incorporates a perfect scale outline with an scale competition level of detailing including panel lines, rivets and hatches.
The model is fully composite construction using glass, airex/ glass sandwich and is fully vacuum molded. This allows for an extremely light yet rigid airframe. The kit is highly pre-assembled with formers and fittings installed.
Most fuselage formers are made of a very strong aircraft grade plywood/ carbon sandwich. Below is a view of the main gear formers. The airex laminate is clearly visible on this picture.
Here is a view of the front gear area. The gear formers use the same plywood/ carbon sandwich and the gear comes pre-installed. Note that the nose gear doors come installed as well.
The kit is supplied complete with canopy, hardware, instructions and an English language assembly manual.
The high quality canopy:
The landing gear is available as an option. It is designed and produced in Austria by Der Schweighoffer. It is a very high quality unit, using real ACME screws and high quality motors.
When the gear option is purchased with the model, the gear comes installed with the nose gear doors fitted.
The plane is fully electrically controlled with no pneumatic system required. This enables easy and very fast setup at the field. We recommend using our super high quality A123 M1-B 2S and 3S packs with this kit.
An unusual subject, and a great flying model, the MIBO J-29E/F will provide you with many enjoyable flights whether for serious scale competition. This model was presented at Top Gun 2013 by Mike Selby and delivered some nice flights and a very good static score.
