You need to pay attention that the elevon is in one line at the body side next to the fin.

My comment related to take-off rather than the Elevon position for normal flight.

Hi all,

Just gave my Funjet it's maiden flight. Oh this is defo the best jet mutiplex have made. There was no need for any correction on the elevons for takeoff, unlike the microjet. It flies just as fast if not a little faster than the microjet too on the same power system. You can fly it so slow too. Take off is a breeze, nothing to worry about a all, no bad behaviour, half throttle, and a little throw is all it needs.

Just need to charge the batts again, for it's next two flights.

"On the same power system" as the MicroJet infers you're using a brushed 6-volt 400 motor, same that comes with the MicroJet, correct?

I had two flights as well today.
Last flight I did trow the plane my self.
No problem at all, not much different than a PicoJet the handstart.

It is a cool piece of "FUN" for sure!!

Cheers,
Rob

Did you guys already order? If not, could you please check and see if an extra set of white tail fins from either a white twin jet(prefered), micro jet or fun jet could fit in the box. I need some for a project.
thanx

Viper, How do you like it on the Mega 3T. Does it have enough power for good verticals, or is it all straight line speed? My Stryker with a Himaxx 2815-2000 and 6x4 has a good combo of speed and climb. I have a mega 3T I am planning on putting in the Funjet, but the Himaxx could be borrowed. How many amps are you drawing?

Thanks, Ryan

Hi Rycomm,

The FJ with the 3T mega has great speed and unlimited vertical, Launch is easy at half throttle. It pulls 26A WOT. on average I'm getting 10mins flight durations. Even with the small prop, FJ will still flying on the lowest possible throttle setting too.

Hello all,

I've ordered 2 funjet, one will be for me with a brushless setup, the other one will be for a "beginner" who has already a good experience in flying his GWS E-Start and an electric flying wing that I use to have in the past.
Do you think it would be possible to fly the funjet with a standard 6v 400 motor (permax 400 from his EasyStar) and 2S lipo ?.
The goal is not to have a racer but something that flies gently re-using equipment that he has already in stock (motor, 2S1500 polyquest 10C lipo and jeti 20A ESC).

Thx for your replies.

David

Hi David,

6v 400motor and 2s LiPoly is to risky. Not enough power I am afraid. But you could try it on a grass field.
Permax480motor and 3s LiPoly and a 6x4 prop is a better option and much saver
The PicoJet with Permax480motor and 3sLiPoly flies good (I had one), so my guess is that it will work also in the FunJet which is a lighter.

I hope this helps.

Hi Rob,

I actually think it might be ok on that setup. My Microjet has the stock Permax 400 and a 1200 2S Lipo, and it not only flies, it actually goes pretty hard.

With the Funjet being an improvement on the Microjet, I think it should go fairly well on the Permax. But we need someone who's tried it to tell us for sure.

Cheers,
Ben.

Thx,

I think I'll give it a try with 2S, the permax 400 and a standard gunther prop (the white one) if we receive the funjets before they cut the grass of the field near my house... The grass is nearly 1 meter height so it should be ok in case of issue ...

For my funjet, I plan to use a 3S1500 15C that I've in stock and a coolrunning 25A.
For the motor, I don't know yet... 20A is the max that my lipos can accept.

Hi Dex,

Even lower grass is no problem. With your weight of the FunJet it should be no problem to glide back to the ground if the power is not good enough.
Pay attention to the CG and trow the plane in an angle of 20 degrees.

The FunJet is "much" easier to start then a MicroJet.

Success and keep us posted!
Rob

If the MicroJet would fly with 2S on a 6V 400, I would think the FunJet will too. It has more wing area and looks to be more stable. I think it may be abit heavier though...

My MicroJet is on 3S and the 7.2 V 480, and it really hauls the mail. (this is relatively speaking, of course)
