I love my funbat, And I thought I would share the fun with my dad. But in the spirit of being a #1 son, I thought I would make it look "Fabulous" for him..

An that means?
Seems to me purple is just BLUE with a bit of red added to it.
Plum Crazy Purple was a very popular Mopar color. Real men drove plum crazy purple Hemi Cuda's.
Funny that both my plane and lemuel's plane both have purple on them.

Outcast, that's a cool looking PusherBat.

then in the 80's there was "Durban Maroon" which was a really dark "raspberry"ish color. Though since it was only on Conquests it could be called a Mitsubishi color :P

the "wind fighter" is heavily based off the funbat, but Kf4 wing and some of my style in the tail There are plans for it on the thread about the plane. I linked to it on that post.

After finishing the purple and blue Funbat. I think the $ tree foam won't last. I don't think it will make it past the first landing, So, on to FunBat II.
Made this one out of FFF. pink 3/8" insulation. This foam feels like it will be more durable.
I also added 2" to the front of the fuselage. It will give a bit more room for the electronics.

Mo... Funbat ll looking good, packing tape would be a good covering to make it a bit stonger without too much additional weight. You can't deny your first F-B the chance of some air ! I see 'Headless' contributing He's what I would call a specialist when it comes to the funbat, lucky hes one of my FB's and the person responsible for getting me into RC aircraft in the first place ! Hi 'Head..' how's it going ??

Well, I wouldn't call myself an Funbat expert although I've built (and crashed!) a Maxi, standard and Mini version. Presently finishing up a KFm-4 Funbat Ultra that will run a HK Funfighter motor, 40 amp esc and 4S set up. Hope she will be good for 90-100 mph but will maiden on 3S till I've trimmed her out. Will post pictures shortly.

See everybody... 90-100mph... just like I said On the 'Headless' coat-of-arms :- 'If it aint quick, it aint flyin' ! Don't believe me ? well look up his funbat mini with like more than 4 rolls per second, or maybe the rarebear with 4s setup, or mini-wing with 3000kv motor and outrageous sports handling & yes you guessed it... speeeeeeed (hang on a minute... maybe I have one from his stable with similar performance ! Maybe I shouldn't shout )

There was an 'incident' with the funbats 2nd outing.
Front was munted, broken wing.
Since it was Too heavy & just didnt fly nicely with all the lead I added to try & the COG balanced up.. I made some changes when I did the repairs

Is it still a funbat ??

A bit flash Headless
Put the boat out with separate servo's for aileron too !
I don't suppose its a bit quick by any chance ???
Nicely sculpted nose end as well, maybe the dorsal fin is a bit big, but I'm sure you have good reason I know you are a bit of a specialist on the funbat (having created various sizes previously), does this one track as good as your original 26" (or so) version ?
Colouring in... I just got some clear 'fablon' style self-adhesive material about 24" width, would work a treat to cover & strengthen in one piece. They had wood effect too, it would look like a flying aerobatic RC fence-panel

I thought I might try some Ronseal Paint and Grain. Sure would confuse the balsa bashers out there
Not really opened her up yet as it was like flying a wind blown leaf with the excessive up trim and rearward c of g.
Are you up for some flying this evening?
