That's not an RC model but a flight simulator called AeroflyRC8. It does need a usb controller which looks similar to a controller that you use to fly real RC planes, but it's not a radio controller.

For those who are interested in looking it up-

A happy balance indeed. And I appreciate your predicament - queen cats are well avoided by all dogs who value their safety & peace of mind!

I remember back in the 60's in Allahabad, we had a cross-bred German Shepherd who thought he was afraid of nothing on earth. Till he chased a cat and cornered it on our terrace. Thereafter all his roaring barks and slavering jaws had no effect on the cat - she would just rear up on her hind legs and spit & snarl with her paws extended. And our Badshah (for some odd reason that's what our grandma had named him!) just could not close up on her. After a few attempts - and a bleeding nose & jowls from needle sharp claws - he decided to call it a day. The cat simply climbed over the parapet & disappeared without so much as a scratch on her.

After the incident l have had a great deal of respect for cats.

There were reports of IAF eyeing to buy some surplus/ sparingly used MiG 29's from the Russian Air Force - of SMT standard.

Don't know how it went - Anyone heard anything further about it??

Those MiG-29 airframes are lying in Russia in unassembled and mothballed condition since the 1980s. Chances are those are vanilla MiG-29A Fulcrum-A airframes and not SMTs. SMTs, which were upgraded MiG-29As, started showing up only in the mid or late 1990s.

The IAF had received a slightly downgraded export variant, designated as the MiG-29B in the late 1980s and few MiG-29S Fulcrum-Cs(apparently) in the 90s, which are being upgraded to IAF specified MiG-29UPG standards .

If the deal for the mothballed Fulcrums goes through, they will be bought upto to IAF's MiG-29UPG standards before delivery.

Given the track record of defence procurements, I doubt that this is going to materialise and moreover they are going for more MKI's.
