Thanks for this Cyclops. The review of the model I'm looking for was published more recently than 10 years - maybe 3 or 4 years ago

Can anyone identify a Twin-Motor kit which uses Motor Differential Thrust Vectoring?

Some time ago I read a magazing review of this type of EPP(?) model and thought . . . one day I'll get one of these, because the insane manoeuvres descrined in the review were so appealing to me. But...

My starter doesn't have enough power when I use long leads from my car battery (lack of power) so I guess I'll be following your lead and building something similar to what you're making, Cheers, Tony

That looks great - and by coincidence my 12v flight-box battery seems to be running out of steam at the moment, so your idea is very interesting to me. But before I do anything: Most of us drive cars...

Good Luck with the wing mod Fritz. I still have a Funtana and I still enjoy flying it from time to time. I look upon it as one of my 'newer' models, rather than an out of date one - my 1953 Junior 60...

RE: Hangar 9 Funtana 40

Just stopped by to update and am pleased to see that the wing mod has converted yet another bad-flying Funtana into a 'sweetie!' Also to report that routing my Funtana's aerial outside the fuz and up...

Hi David, I 'tried doing without' one for quite a while . . . but even though I have other good-flying models, I still missed flying the Funtana. So when the opportunity cropped-up to buy a good used...

RE: Hangar 9 Funtana 40

Update: Re post 998 - I now own the Funtana I mentioned in this post. And I can confirm that it flies brilliantly, so there is no need for me to contemplate modifying this model's wing. Oddly-enough...

RE: Hangar 9 Funtana 40

Jeff - you will love the way the Funtana lands when it has a proper leading edge - you'll be able to land it at walking pace. And you'll be able to loop it tighter too. You've been having exactly the...

RE: Hangar 9 Funtana 40

Hi Glen - yes, I can tell you're a happy chappy! Ha ha! Glad to hear it too

RE: Hangar 9 Funtana 40

Nope - sounds like you're doing 'all you can!' Wonder why it's not working - have you tried it inverted? Sometimes works easier with some of my models

Thinking back, I don't believe my...
