MiG-29 RC Plane plans


Mikoyan MiG-29

In the late 1960s, the requirements for next-generation fighters were developed in the USSR. They focused on the aerodynamic properties of the airframe, resigning from the use of electronics to control the aircraft to a greater extent. Simultaneously with the work on aerodynamics, the design of engines that met the condition of obtaining good parameters in a wide range of speeds and altitudes began. Work on MiG 29 began in 1972 in the Experimental and Design Office of Mikoyan. It was to fulfill the role of a front-line fighter, complementing the Su-27 air superiority fighter designed in parallel.
The first prototype of the MiG 29, marked as "product 9.01", was flown on October 6, 2007 by the head of OKB testers, Aleksander W.
Fedotov. The second prototype - the plane on 9.02. flew in June 1978. The decision to serialize the MiG-29 was made in 1982 after a series of tests on 21 pre-production series aircraft. Until 1990, over 800 MiG-29 aircraft in various versions were produced.
In parallel with the combat version, it develops on the former two-seater - training version - the MiG-29 - product 9.51. The first copy of the two-seater version was obtained by modifying the third pre-production aircraft. The introduction of the second cabin made it necessary to remove the radar. Apart from this change, the training version corresponds to the capabilities of the combat variant and is similarly equipped. From the instructor's cabin, you can fully simulate the operation of the targeting and navigation system and simulate damage to the aircraft. In practice, it is often not necessary to install some (or all) under-wing pylons in the MiG 29UB. Due to poor visibility from the rear cabin, it is equipped with a retractable periscope. The 29UB MiGs are constantly modified in terms of electronic equipment.
The MiG-29UB is a two-seater, supersonic training plane, built in the high wing configuration with strip wings and a double vertical tail. The structure of the aircraft is made of metal with a small proportion of composites.
In Poland, the first 7 MiG-29 and 2 MiG-29UB were equipped with the 1st Fighter Aviation Unit stationed in Mińsk Mazowiecki in 1989. The pilots of this regiment passed earlier, in 1988. introductory training in the USSR. 1 plm traditionally receives new fighter planes in the first place as part of the Polish aviation equipment.
The first batch of 4 MiG-29, serial numbers 2960526365, -67, -68, -70, arrived in Minsk in the second half of July 1989. and 3 MiG-29UB (50903014615, -42, -44) August 1, 89r. The next 5 combat aircraft arrived after more than a year - 30, 10, and 90 years. (serial numbers - 29605351085, -08, -11, -14, -15).
At the end of December 1995. a barter contract was signed under which Poland was to purchase 10 MiG-29 from the Czech Army Aviation, paying with 11 new PZL Sokół helicopters. The first 29 MiG (4 combat and 1 training) were brought to Mińsk Mazowiecki by Polish pilots on December 22, 1995. Another plane arrived in Poland on December 29, 1995. These planes replaced MiG-21 M / UM in the 2nd Squadron of the 1st PLM "Warszawa". Currently, the 1st Fighter Aviation Regiment "Warsaw" has 18 MiG-29 combat aircraft (version 9.12A) and 4 MiG-29UB training aircraft (version 9.51).

Overall length -1 7320mm; span -11360mm; height - 4360mm; empty weight - 0900 kg; take-off weight max. - 18480kg; speed max. on the ceiling of 1200m - 2400km / h (2.3Ma); at sea level - 1500 km / h; climb up to 330m / s; range without external tanks - 1430km.


The MiG-29 remains an attractive aircraft. Especially for modellers, it is a rewarding topic for work as an exceptionally beautiful model of a fighter jet plane. This is also how it is perceived in everyday life by users and by many other people. The plane has two engines, the power of which would theoretically allow for vertical flight. These motors offer great safety comfort. The aerodynamic system allows you to perform complex maneuvers. The durable structure allows take-offs and landings from grassy landing grounds, and the closing bottom inlets prevent something from being sucked in from the ground. The disadvantage is the small capacity of the fuel tanks, which allows them to stay in the air for only 1.5 hours of flight.

It is also the only Russian fighter plane in service with NATO. In the NATO code, the aircraft was given the name Fulcrum A ("fulcrum"). In addition to the above-mentioned name, in the West it is assigned the term "smoker", which results from its characteristic feature of leaving black streaks of smoke on it. heaven.

The plane was constructed by the team of Atiom Mikojan at the turn of 1969-1970, the first prototype took to the air in 1977. In May 1982, serial production started at a factory in Moscow. To date, about 1,500 MiG-29 planes (including 200 training ones) have been built. Poland purchased the first seven of these aircraft in the summer of 1989, and in October 1990 another five arrived. In January 1996, PSP received 10 MiG-29s from the Czech Republic (9 combat and 1 UB) in exchange for W-3 Sokol helicopters (11), on August 4, 2004, the last 9 German MiG planes were handed over to the Bydgoszcz airport -29. Out of 23 units commissioned for service, only 14 were introduced due to excessive wear and tear. On February 22, 1999, a dozen or so days before Poland joined NATO, 8 MIG-29 aircraft from the 1st PLM entered service, intended for inclusion in the NATO immediate reaction force.
