BJ-Craft Fantasista 70.....Thoughts?

I was wondering what your thoughts were on this plane. I've seen this plane at the f3aunlimited.com web site and looks interesting. I'm wondering what your thoughts were especially about the wing design as well as the full flying stab.

I was thinking of either this plane or the sebart MythoS 50e.

Thanks for any input.

Hi,
This plane seems a very nice plane. There is an assembly thread on it at rcuniverse Electric Pattern forum:

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/elec...ista-70-a.html

Seems like Futabas 5055 410kv, Hacker A50-16S 356kv or OS OMA-5025 375kv motors with 6 cell LiPo should be fine with this model. I think it is a Futaba 5055 410kv they show to mount in photos in the PDF assembly manual for this model.
You can for this model even buy an optional belt drive and mount a suitable motor in that.

It has smaller wing area compared to MythoS 50E:
Fantasista 70: 37.6 square decimeter / 583 square inch (according to assembly manual)
MythoS 50E: 52 square decimeter / 806 square inch (assording to Sebart 2014 News cataloge)
That is about 38% more wing area on MythoS 50E.

Weight without flight battery according to same sources:
Fantasista 70: 2800-2900 gram / 98.8-102.3 oz
MythoS 50E: 2750 gram / 97.0 oz

Would be interesting to read how Fantasista 70 flies.
There are some videos on it on Youtube:

Hi -

I have also had my eye on the Fantasita. I currently have a Sebart Angel with more than 500 flights on it and I thinking about replacing with something a little newer. In terms of aethetics, I think that the Fantasita looks a little better than the Mythos.

The biggest concern I have is simply the finished weight. The Angel has a fairly large wing and at 6 lbs and change (on 5S) it is fairly light. A slightly heavier plane would not be a bad thing on windy days. If I were to get the Fantasita, I would try to see if I can be flown on 5S; the plane does not seem large enough for a 6S system.

Maybe buy both?

I have the Fantasista 120, the big sister to the 70.
It is a beautiful plane, much better in person than the pictures.
Very happy with the build quality and finish.

ltc,
How would You describe the flight characteristics on Fantasista 120?
It could be a clue how the smaller 70 version fly.

I'll let you know in a week or two. Just finishing radio install and programming.
These 80 hour work weeks really put a damper on my hobby
