FPV Thoughts

Planes like the Funter are natural FPV birds. They are easy to fly, can be hand launched and carry a decent amount of FPV gear. If you break them you can glue the pieces back together and get back in the sky. Here is a Gopro mount made for this bird.

This looks exactly like the Robbe/Hype Funtastic that was available in Europe just over a year ago.

I procrastinated about getting one and when I'd finally made the decision to do so I couldn't find one anywhere. For some reason it didn't really take off (excuse the pun) and is now unavailable. There are some videos on youtube and it looks to be a good all round flyer as well as a good proposition for FPV.

If it/this or clone of becomes available again then I would get one for FPV use.

The tech specs on Tower give a throw dimension for flaps. Does it have them? They only list four servos in the package.

1650mm is 64.9 inches.

So 65 inches is right.

8x6 prop with a kv1200 on 3 cells battery on 65" wingspan? Now that will be a very large snail. And if you have a fair bit of headwind you'll learn to fly backwards. :-)

At that wingspan, assuming the same 1200kv motor you should use 4S 2200-3000mah and at least 9x6 prop to move that large thing around.

My Funter Just Arrived


I signed up to RCgroups just so I could post this. Took the Funter out of the box and stuck it together on the workbench to take look. I am very impressed! Very well designed and thought out. I have been doing FPV with an old Easy Star fitted with ailerons and wanted this to upgrade. It looks better than the pictures. The trim colors are quite striking. electric blue and orange. It's a lot sexier than that old beat up easy star. I am definitely not disappointed.

Got to maiden my Funter today after work. Haven't added the FPV gear yet. I have taildragger landing gear installed. Power system wattage is about 160, same as the system I have on my FPV Easy Star. Flies great "like on rails" as they say. Turns out to be plenty of power, certainly for FPV. Cruised around at a pretty good speed at a little over half throttle. The landing gear worked great. Not a floater. Should be good in the wind. Slight pitch down at higher power settings. I am real happy with it. The quality on this thing is very good like a Multiplex product.
