What are you going to use for the wings? Perhaps you could use that same material.

The only reason I ask is because I sandwiched the wing between the 2 fuse halves

I ended up using the 1" thick pink foam board from Home Depot for the top and bottom. It's a PITA to make clean cuts with foam this thick. The plane turned out OK for my very first foam build from scratch. I am a bit concerned that the extra thickness may block air to the 5x5 prop. I will find out soon enough as I plan to maiden the plane on Friday.

The orange "tape scheme" was inspired by another builder on this thread.

Looks great! As long as, like you mentioned, that the prop doesn't get air starved behind the fuse

Zero Six Sierra- I think that would be crazy! (Good)

With people hitting near 100 with only props . I think a edf would hit 200+ easily.

Okay everyone I have followed the first set of videos for making the funjet and have my center of gravity at 15 5/8" from the nose for a larger 11.1v 2200mah 3s 20c lipo

I also have a 7.2v 1000mah 2s 20c battery that is giving the same performance just a shorter time to run the motor.

I am using the hobbyking 2826-6 2200kv motor with a Skywalker 50A ESC

how could i recess/mount a larger battery pack inside the frame for better flow?
Just in the programming and testing the funjet it eats through the 1000mah battery

Sorry if I am disturbing you....

I am kind of on a dead thread with the funjet page not getting any response and saw you were on rcgroups

Did you know how to setup dual ailerons and evelons?

Only using the 2 servos and the1 motor on the 3 channels

In my programming mix that I have setup currently I can only get one or the other.(with one evelon working)
