I let you decide who of these two is a better reference.
Can you please ask your real MiG-21 pilots to test the following and report back (if they haven't done so already)?

- High AoA behavior
- Comment on the aircraft having negative AoA and flying slughtly nose down in level flight above ~490 Kts
- Confirm the aircraft INSTANTLY snaps to 2g whenever entering an exiting a stall, irregardless of the starting conditions.
- Confirm it is possible to steer the aircaft on the ground by using the rudder only (no brakes) at speeds as slow as 4 Kts (no wind).

Haha I reckon you already know the answer to all those questions. Negative AoA but maintaining level flight makes no sense, I suppose a slight nose down attitude is possible at high speed but that would depend on the angle of incidence of the wing and would still require a positive AoA.

As for taxiing, can’t see the rudder working effectively until speeds more toward 30 or 40kts, differential braking required with castoring wheel.

How does the MiG 21 detect angle of attack? Is it vanes on the nose or something else placed elsewhere?

"quite acceptable"

LOL


anyway, let's wait for the next announced updates. SPO-10 overhaul is what I'd like to see first, can't wait to not detect doppler radars anymore

I'm in the same boat. Like I've said before; I want to be optimistic. So I'm very curious where this seemingly renewed interest in the fishbed takes us.

More than likely. But, if it gets stuff done, it gets stuff done.
