    Techone Hobby Funfly Trainer review & maidon

    Hey all.

    I got a chance to get a maidon, of my newest plane in the hanger, I built. Taken a hour or so, I taken more time and did some vids on it. I do not have the chance right now to wwait for a calmer day the next five dys re windier. I bilieve the wind wer at gusts up to 25mph, and will be more later and bad weather to.

    The Plane is floater . I thought I was directed, but in the wind wrong again, everchanging and whipping .

    Off wheeled her two feet she was up wind blew sidways got m I corrected to left rudder up field, and said I think I am calling it in. so I cut, she glided, I said makea turn float her back and kpet one step ahead, I was turning to land offcamera. she landed fast and nice. andsaid wow she did good.

    Enjoy the video

    Fishy- not bad sure looks like a floater. I am putting together a techone Aeolus and am REALLY impressed with the construction. It is incredibly clean and comes together like a dream. Techone is definitely my new favorite foamy maker.
    Flying is the art of throwing yourself at the ground... and missing.

    Yes they are Flyn.... first build in a super long time wasnota fan of the supplied electronic ESC and Motor, once it fell together , it is a wonderful floater for sure. I did not have time to stay out so I tried to keep it near by and get a feel for it. should have went up, but a storm came in and other matters at hand.

    Hope your build and plane goes well. Techone is a great plane for sure.

    It has been awhile, have so much fun, why not many have not wanting a ever so strong plane, maybe popularity, looks, talk, who knows, I am so happy that I got this. at my door a Electrifly Flylite arrives shocked to see her there WOW! open her up, see the insides and what a big diffrence OMG! good/bad/ugly, never said wrong. it will be something when I compare these two. til then I shall do a review and report later.

    note to myself...

    RE: Techone Hobby Funfly Trainer review & maidon

    after owning the funflyI am overwhelmed how shhe is built super tough, I do notice some wear on the wing. due to the Airlon cut to the center. I have asolution, and am wetting some balsa from a cassette holder, anything around hte house.

    I have already fixed the battery door madefrom Balsa, I had a hotel key card cut out hte width I needed, drilled two holes, and used a ultility scissor, and shaped out enough room for hte batt door to fit. and sanded the plastic used Mercury 300m glue ca safe.

    And withing 5 seconds she was stuck. the fix is now sweet.

    The wing I shall make a bend, as it must match the dehidral. Then glue it n, I may need two peices and I may see if anything is needed for hte fuselage of hte wing area. Rubberbands weakened the area showing cracks.

    I am again amazed how well built she is.

    I have not a problem placing a order for another 3ch . not a 4ch FF thanks for listening/reading

    RE: Techone Hobby Funfly Trainer review & maidon

    Hey thanks for the reports, fishy! Just wondering: you got a picture of this bird? I looked at BP Hobbies Techones and they don't have the Funfly, so wondering what she looks like?
    Thanks! keep flying and keep reporting!
    Put my Micro T-28 in the pond again today, but she still flies! Whole lotta' wind is myexcuse-or, as B. Clintonfamously said-"my explanation"

    RE: Techone Hobby Funfly Trainer review & maidon

    Here are some Pics, a 36 in" wingspan fitting in the car just fine, some ariel shots today flying, from an 808 keychain cam on a hat off the editor a video frame. And the Plane. a 2208 motor, the front of the plane notice no front windowdecal, and under the main wing notice the support I placed, and the battery tray holder notice the hotel, creditcard slot. The tail has no landing gear, but a black peice of stick, I have yet put a tail wheel on. I only go over grass. Also the Landing gear today came off. i wrap the wires of a altameter around it saved it from fully flying away. I will make a string vs glueing. I may place a layer of tape to enforce in.

    Today I was all over, otherdays i am fine, the wind, I guess, and wetness in air.

    If you are interested, i as well am awaiting a few parts for the Electrifly flyLite, She is a lighter weight plane Identical to the Funfly. The tuff Trainer as well is the twin from Hobbyking.

    BH BP Hobbies I believe they are up in New Jersey Hillsborogh. I was looking at the E-Areo Eagle, from a mag. I may pay them a visit when I am near them. All in all I have a champ, a super cub, now a slow stick and Flylite. I take the Funfly out today. wind or not I like her becasue I am able to handel a 36 inch wingspan in the park I fly just fine.

    Not many are interested at the other place all they care about is BS stuf.. As long as I am happy that to me is all that matters. I am happy you are interested in the Plane.. Lazertoyz.com $59.99 the full kit $89.00

    I say Pass on the AIrlons I did try today no good nothing shown, I had turned the other day who knows, just makes the wing weaker in the center. There is one more hobby online forgot the name $#4.00 There you go.
