Default Help me prop. this for speed!

I bought a Funtana-40 and want it to be as fast as possible! Please help me hit 150MPH with my new airframe-

OK just kidding, I have not turned to the dark-side or anything but I wanted to share my newest project with y'all-

This is my Funtana-40 with a Supertigre G-90, and 14x6Z --- Think I will have decent vertical?

Peace-

Ya flown it yet? Mine does rather well with a Tower .75...Gotta watch the speed tho, them big ole ailerons will rip the wing right off in a heartbeat if they start to flutter. 'course, you probably know that already

I gots me all 3 of the Funtanas now...picked up the mini e-powered one the other day. I saw it in the lhs and it called to me

Gotta wait for the sub zero stuff to get the heck outa here before I go out flyin' again though...

I had my Tower-75 all ready to install on there and I figured I should put it back on my 60 sized F-20, and shoe-horn the G-90 on there...

I managed to lose the nedle-valve for the TH-75 also

Dave- Is the Zinger an "approved" prop.?

Planes look nice! The big tiger will give you pleanty of oomph!

If it makes yall feel any better...... I cylced the batteries on my 1/4 scale J-3 cub last night. [:-]

At our club airshow last summer, we had a press-day the day before. The news guy watched me fly both the cub and my QM within a few minutes of eachother. Remarked that I had both the slowest and fastest airplanes at the field. I told him the slower planes make the faster planes feel faster

Well the maiden flight(s) went perfectly... I tried a 14x4 Zinger and a 14x6 Pro-Zinger, I think the 15x4 is the sweet spot--- Plenty of power putting the 90 2 cy. on a 46 sized plane

Back to speed projects!
