No Bus, just mud. I was on my final when another flyer called out dead stick. I hesitated trying to decide whether to go ahead and land or go around. Lost air speed and stalled. When I noticed it...

RE: New Funtana 125

I have a RCG 30 on mine and it flies great with unlimited verticle at 1/2 throttle. Had a RCG 26 on it for awhile and it only flew it OK. I think the DLE 20 makes more power than the RCG 26 so it...

RE: New Funtana 125

I am...

RE: New Funtana 125

I built mine using an RCG 26 from Hobby King ($129) and it flew well but did not have unlimited vertical. I am now replacing that engine with the RCG 30 from Hobby King ($219). It makes 3.9 hp...

RE: New Funtana 125

I opened my new 3D Hobby Shop 57" Extra yesterday and to be truthful I am seriously disappointed. It had the worst covering job that has come with a ARF since I started building. After several...

RE: New Funtana 125

Had a chance to fly the funtana again this afternoon with a couple of different props. Tried a 17-6 and a 16-8. I liked the 17-6 best. The engine turned 7500 rpms on the 17-6 and the plane flew...

RE: New Funtana 125

Are you still flying this plane? I am thinking about making your modifications to see if it improves handling. Have you tried anything else.
