Thumbs up Funjet Fun !!!

While this has been out awhile its just now showing up in US stores. I have wanted one of these for some time and when looking around LHS there it was so I grabbed it. While thinking what I was going to power it with the owner showed me some spare F27C motors he had in back so I was sold. The 1880kv inrunner with a standard 6x4 prop should put it above 80mph range and thats plenty fast at my skill level right now. :o

Had a spare 25 amp ESC and used two HS-56 servos to top it off. There really is no build on this and takes less than a hour to have it RTF. Takes much longer to cut out the decals if you chose to use them. A little masking tape and one coat of Krylon H2O paint was all it took to make it stand out from the others. With a 3 cell TP-2100 the AUW comes to 17 ounces so its overkill on power but thats what makes it fun I guess.

The stock F-27C goes about 70MPH level flight so this outta haul at least another 10mph since it is 6 ounces lighter and looks less draggy than the Stryker.

Just got back from the first flight and all went very good. The roll rate is simply too fast to count with impressive speed but still slows down nicely.
I also tried it with the APC 5.5x 4.5 with good results but will have to see what the watt meter says about it. Its a keeper that should get a real workout tomorrow.

KOSH:

I was under the impression that the 1880 kv motor that comes with the F-27C was an outrunner as it has no gearbox and is direct drive? How can one tell if a motor is an outrunner or inrunner?

It's easy, an outrunner has more torque and the outside of the motor turns with the prop. The Stryker C does not come with an outrunner.

In this picture the whole can spins along with the prop, only the mounting bracket where they attach to the plane doesn't.

Heres 2 pics of my motor setup. Had a Little Screamer Park Jet motor been available I might have opted for that but I'm plenty happy with this system also.

Thanks for clearing up my lack of knowledge about outrunner vs. inrunner. I learn something new here everyday. I got a Park Jet on order for my Microjet and BAE Hawk (yet to be built).

I was flying last night and a guy comes up to me and asks whether I have been missing an "flight 25amp something or other? . . . It has wires coming out of it . . . ". I could not believe my luck! He and his dog found my 25AMP E-flight pro ESC in the tall grass field. I offered him cash for it but he would not take it and then took off to find the lost Lipo when I told him that was missing too. It turns out it was all found way futher than I thought since I found the light pieces in a different spot than he found the heavy pieces (100 yard spread). I have yet to plug it in to see if it was damaged by the rain.

What a great place to fly. Dog owners helping out the flyers! Even the security guards are cool. I hit the building they guard a few weeks back and they still keep coming out to see me fly . . .

Boy talk about lucky, Cant even think about all the hours I have spent hunting for ejected lipos but always found them. The LSPJ motors should a great choice for your planes. I own a pair of Scott's "De Nova" wind motors that get used almost daily. There working on a version for EDF use now that should rock.

My LHS "Galaxy Hobby" was voted hobby store of the year in the states and the owner Bob is always happy to order cutting edge stuff for us. I'm not sure of the true status on this plane but it say release date is "Mid Oct." so were there already and it is starting to show up I guess. I would think that by the end of the month it should be available online at many places.

Update: Just sent off a email to find out the status on the plane and will let you know.

Well I guess I'll be talking to my LHS owner tomorrow. It is such a cool looking Jet. I Love Foam!! I just maidened my Micro Jet with a park 400-4200 inrunner today. I posted a video in the MJ thread. It is fun and pretty fast. Thats the plane I orderd the park jet motor for. Looks like I need to get another motor, however I have a 2815-3000 Himax sitting with out a home. It would really melt the foam of the FJ!!

Major thanks to Susan for shooting some video for me.
It was a very gray and foggy day, trying to keep up with this plane is more than a handful so big thanks. Just after the last fade the motor is shut off to show the glide rate for landing. Will do another video when the weather is better.

Very nice done Kosh!! That video sure stirred some sweet emotion in me!! My LHS said they wouldn't be able to get the FJ until the end of this month, boo hiss! Oh well, I'm enjoying my MJ for now. Here is a video of my MJ, I'm hoping to get some better video this weekend. Maybe I'll even clean my camera lens before then, LOL!! Ignore the booger on the lens.

Great video CTD, Darn fast little critter you have there.

Blaze, replied to message and hope that works out.

I crashed the plane on launch but very little damage and its already fixed. Mine will take a slight dip after a firm throw and I just couldn't hit up fast enough. :o
I lighter motor I'm sure could help solve this slight problem but for now I will just have a friend throw it.

Thanks Kosh,

It is really quick. Today I had 15 MPH winds and with a tail wind it was smokin!!! At one point I almost bought the farm on a WOT dive. It is a twitchy little bugger at those speeds. Things happed real fast when you are down low at those speeds, LOL!! I'm hoping to get some more video of it this weekend. My battery was going bad in my camers so we only got 1 video. I want to get a video of the launch and some shots of it down low so you can se the ground rushing past. That gives the best perspective of speed. Check out this video of my UF F-16, it was running a 2000 KV Himax almost just like your 1880KV Parkzone motor. Try a 6X5.5 prop on yours. That prop hits a sweet spot in the speed department, thats what I was running on the UF F-16.

Rgr that buddy. Operation Get-Blaze-a-Funjet is set for tomorrow at 1400.

I'm gonna be trying a 6x5.5 (rather than the old 6x4) on my MJ (has a Purple Peril motor) this coming weekend. It'll be interesting to measure the amp draw against the speed increase.

Honestly, I'm not expecting to turn the Funjet into a speed demon. I rather admire how it handles itself gracefully for a jet when setup right. Sure it can do speed just fine, but when you think about Multiplex's Jet line... the other two can't touch the Funjet on indoor handling and gliding (according to these videos).

The MJ and TJ are all about speed and acro. The FJ has more potential to cover bases never even thought possible by a jet.

Default Nice Vid!

Nice funJet video though I must admit I puckered up a bit when I saw that concrete coming in for that great landing. . bumped my knuckles into the screen trying to catch it, while yelling NOoooooo out loud at work. Turned out to not be so bad stopped right away. LOL!

CDT, Another great video and I will try out that 6x5.5 prop this weekend with a radar gun and get some speed readings. Thanks


Blaze, Operation Get-Blaze-a-Funjet went into effect at 11:47.
By 11:48 I had all the planes cornered and wouldn't let anyone see them till they released the hostage Multiplex. One clerk said he just sold the last 1 so I roughed him up till he confessed he wanted it himself (He didn't hide it well).
11:50 Hostage freed and is in protective custody, Clerk will recover with no damage to the store this time.
11:51 Credit card suffers a slight wound and I retreated with Funjet before it takes another hit.
11:52 Operation Get-Blaze-a-Funjet completed.
Will be in Renton, Saturday at 1pm and release it into your custody.

WingTips24, I thought about landing there and taped up the bottom pretty good to prevent damage but it would normally land on grass.
It's made of the Elapor foam so it should be very durable and even able to withstand some bad landings but I'm NOT willing to test that theory just yet. :p

Nice, good work my hired Multiplex Mercanary.

I'll make sure to bring the silver titanium briefcase packed full of money (totaling $70 ) and the agreed upon bounty of one BP BL motor NIP.

We have to make sure we keep the hand-off low profile, so you're gonna have to hide the gigantic Multiplex box in your coat zipped-up as to not look suspicious.

I'll make sure to mark the silver titanium briefcase with stickers saying, "NOT a briefcase full of money" to blend in.

(And if all goes right, we should be locked up in jail by midnight. :p)

Thanks Kosh,

That F-16 was a blast to fly. It is in the hanger waiting for a power system. I have my order in with the LHS for my Fun Jet. The 1st one he gets will be mine!! I'm on pins and needles waiting.

Default Shaft Size on the Motor

Hi Kosh:

Great video, although I had to scratch my head when you landed her on pavement.

A tree ate my prop and adapter today on my F-27C motor at WOT. I could not find it after the plane came down with just the bare shaft. Do you know what size that shaft is so I can get another adapter to fit it? Thanks.
