Building it in '97, it used the supplied brushed can motor, and 7 of the very latest, super high capacity, 1700 mah nicads .Even without ail., it would rudder roll, after I gained the skill, and courage, to try it.

I think you'll find it a great introduction to building, and with modern BL motor power and lightweight lipo packs, it will be an even better flier than mine was. I've attached 3 old scanned pics of my Mirage.
Thanks for that and the pictures.
