either move your battery further forwards or go up to a bigger battery.

what size prop can your 2200Kv spin comfortably?

depending on that you might scale up a funder & lightning to match it.

when built right it's a smooth flyer that can easily hold it's own against similar sized foamy's in streamer combat

I like flying these planes but I don't know where to get the coroplast and plastic gutter material. I was hoping to see some links on here.

Maybe this will help. Its a first prototype of a SPAD funjet, designed specifically for the Suppo 2212-06 2200Kv motor that has become the standard for foam pusher jets. Hobbyking sells an equivalent. I'm hoping to build a second prototype within the next month (work permitting) and then draw up some plans. Version 1 flies on rails yet is very, very agile. The fuse is made from foam insulation used for domestic hot water piping and seems indestructable as well as being a good shock absorber that protects the correx and the electronics. Its not a first plane, but I'm hoping it will serve as a challenging second plane for my nephew. Watch this space for developments

BTW, tape on the right wing is from an encounter with a tree. The tree looked a lot worse!

Otherwise try a Mugi...its a rocket with a 2200Kv Suppo and 6x4 prop....

Thank you extreme sports. It sure looks good. Able to send me or post the plan? And can I have a closer look at the fuselage? I have no idea what is that.
