MiG-21 is quite scary to land at first but if you remember some numbers it's a whole lot easier. 1. Stall speed may be only around 140 knots, but land higher than 180 knots to prevent tail strikes. Speed limit of gear is around 250 knots (450kph). 2. Use -25% trim or so to prevent excessive push-down requirement or whatever number tied to your non-linearity setting on your joystick. This helps heaps to prevent a landing bounce. Ideally your plane shouldn't want to take-off hands-free. 3. Approach 300-350 knots until you're less than 2km from the airstrip and then bleed it off by S-turns or doing whale flips. The MiG-21 is good at bleeding energy that way, so keep in mind that doing this once bleeds around 20% of your aispeed which is quite massive so don't overdo it. -- Watch live at https://www.twitch.tv/zdrytchx
