Looks great. I don't know about adding the vert stabs on the wing though....

I + this and - it. It looks good, but I agree with Lota Fun R. The SFG's make it look bad.

This thing is sweet...I have been waiting for thunder power to start selling the insane foamies. The FG full fuse yak is on my wish list. It will be another month before thunder power will be selling their foamies. They are waiting for the packaging??? Thats important..

Anyone snagged one of these yet? I was wondering if the bottom of the fuse is open, or sheeted with depron.Anyone?

Hey guys,

The Funtana has the optional side force generators for those who want them. I personally do not use them.

The bottom of the fuse is sheeted with 3mm depron. There is a large opening on the bottom under the wing for radio and battery isntallation. Manual will beup today on the web site. You should see them by very early January.

Thanks,

Is anyone flying this plane? I was tempted the other day in the LHS, but wanted to see some opinions first.

I put one together recently. It seems like a great plane, but I'm waiting on the elevator and rudder servos to come in (today I hope) before I can maiden it.
I should mention that this is my first indoor capable foamie, so I can't offer much by way of comparison, but I'm happy with the construction and assembly.
I did notice a couple of things though. One: It is next to impossible to attach the elevator push rod if you follow the directions. Instead of attaching the carbon supports before the push rod, put the push rod in first, or the control horn in later. The rudder is difficult, but possible to attach after the carbon support.
Second thing: I had trouble with is getting the horz stab perfectly perpendicular to the fuse. I measured from the wing tip to stab tip, but didn't use a right angle to be sure the control hinge was perfectly perpendicular to the roll axis. Mine's a bit mis-aligned. I hope a little won't cause it to corkscrew.

Seems like this plane and thread is dead... I purchased today. I have been flying my sobre when weather permits. I am this one will fly better. My first sobre flew awesome. The second not so awesome...same gear. And I can't quite pin point the problem and I am tired of tweaking. Will build the Funtana up and report.

I'm still flying my Funtana and like it a lot. I don't know why there isn't much buzz about this little gem. Maybe it is just so predictable that it is boring for some? I really don't know, but it's a great everyday flyer. It handles a bit of wind fine, small spaces, indoor, backyard, and will eat up some sky if you let it. I really like it ....enough to buy another when this one has had it.

Ok So I went with the Futaba Servo's

What would be the Smallest Lipo I should Use with 3114, Park 300, 6100?
I also Have a Axi 2204 Which Would Fit. Could I sue a Small 2 Cell and Get Better
Inddor Style Performance.

BTW How Come this plane doesn't get much Attention? Mine Been Slow going to launch cuase of By Busy time schedule, but this plane looks awesome and the nicest looking foamie I've ever owned. Does It not fly well or Something?
