Why do multiplex always insist on building planks?

Can't say I've ever been a fan of the flying wings without sweep.

Who cares when flight performance and handling is fine.

Or do you want a normal delta wing?

Great !
I like the numbers - all of them !
Also, looking at the photos, adding a larger motor
should not be a problem. Thanks for sharing.

Had to move the battery (3s1p TP480) all the way forward for correct CofG.

Weight moved from 262 to 265g (cable extension).

Despite 10mph wind with gust of 20 mph, the FunJET performed extremely well - almost rock solid. I flew her 3 minutes on full power before the snow storm hit. As I only had to recharge 120mAh, the average current is approx. 2.5A at full speed. Next weekend I will try to fly her Indoors.

I see whether I can get a photo of the original motor mount this weekend at the Multiplex trade stand in Sinsheim.

Why? The sweep is just there to make it balance (which the fuselage does instead), and a straighter wing is less likely to tip stall.

That jet motor mount looks good. Not sure how it will look with a propeller behind it?

Thanks!
Looks like this mount already has holes for mounting motors
larger than 400 size. Great !

Also, mouting an outrunner is quite easy...

Im thinking about getting a FunJet, and have some questions.

Would be great to know for setting up the list of equipment needed for this plane.

1. What servos is supposed to be in this plane? Think maybe HS-81/Tiny S would work?

2. What size of prop would be best, a size that won't break on landing?

3. What motor/batteries would be a good combo? I have some Apogee 3S 2480mAh packs, and one Flight Power EVO20 1800mAh that i would like to use.
Also, for motor.
Would be great to have enough power to go vertical, but still have potential for great speed..

Thanks

1) Servos: Nano-S (HiTec HS55)
2) Why should the prop brake? Just land with the motor off.
3) I will most likely go for a Kontronik FUN400-28 on 3 FP EVO 2100.

Do you think the HS-55's is strong enough when the speed is getting high? Use three HS-55 in my Trex, and i'm not really impressed with their power.

About the prop, i'm just worried that it will snap in two. Happened when i landed with a 5,5" prop on my Pico Jet. It broke in two pieces when it hit the grass.

For me i think a Kontronik would be a little expensive..

I even fly my brushless TJ with 2 HS55 - no problems so far, but may use HS56 now.

Normally the prop will just move out of the way. Never had a problem with my PJ, MJ, TJ.

I expect the Kontronik FUN400-28 to run at approx. 35amps static, i.e. I will have about 350W Power in.

I can't wait for Multiplex to blow out their MJ and TJ's at a great price. Well at least I hope they will They didn't even show them at a recent show in NY.

I'd recommend the new HS-65HB or MG since they were designed to fill the gap between the 55 and 81. http://www.hitecrcd.com/Servos/hs65hb.htm
