I took a MIG 3 up to 5000 meters and put her in a shallow dive at full throttle and before I knew it the ailerons and elevators started falling off or should I say were ripped away from the aircraft.
cool!

I seem to have more trouble with this in the MiG than with any other plane, online or off. I just have a hard time controlling its dive speed, and before I know it...*flutter* oh, crap *rrrrip!*

To me, the Mig3 has always seemed to be a VVS 109 made from crap parts. I know others have had success w/ it, but effective flying of the Mig3 is a mystery to me
