Time for Fun!!!
Well I thought I'd give my good buddy at the field a run for his money. Unfortunately my competitor has piledrived his FJ into the ground doing some amazing vertical work lately.
I hear he is back at work building the next fast FJ, I'll be waiting!!!
Funjet - reworked and Fiberglassed
Suppo 100A ESC
ARC 28-47-1.5 motor
6x4 APC Sport prop
p.s. I need to figure out a better Lion graphic which shows up better, I need more yellow!!!

Looks very good. May be a bit more stripes wouldn't hurt. When is the maiden? Baylands is wet from the rain so I didn't fly today.
I'll be ready to maiden my new fast-er funjet in couple of weeks. Currently working on the custom motor mount with unlimited airflow in mind.
Oh and btw, the new funjet will have a 36-55-1.5 T. Can't wait to see who is going to give a run for their money

Wowie the maiden happened today. I was pretty apprehensive about launching this one because I literally spent 3 weeks on the build. I would have hated to stuff it right on launch.
Well I pushed it up to 1/2 throttle gave it a good heave almost straight up and it took off like a charm. Man this sucker was getting away from me at 1/2 throttle!!!
I slowed her down and trimmed her out a tiny and then I said "what the heck" and started doing WOT passes. At this time someone came up behind me and said "so that's doing 150mph eh?" I just laughed.
I plan to put the Eagletree in there and graph a bunch of data including the airspeed. I'll post up the graphs as soon as I get the data.
FUN FUN FUN!!! Grinnin ear to ear.

Not a bad idea but I like the logo with a yellow background.

I went with a 20C 3300mah 4S lipo. I probably need to get a 3800 as my lipo doesn't seem to like this abuse very much.
