    I've recently finished building the Funtana 125, after crashing my beloved Funtana X100. I was able to use all the components of the X100 on the 125. However, with the OS 91 engine, the nose needs...

    RE: CMP F4U Corsair 50 Build Log

    Thanks for the info. Great looking plane, the right photo makes it look real. And yes, the silver marker added some great character.

    If I understand your description, you used four blocks, one...

    RE: CMP F4U Corsair 50 Build Log

    I have more closely examined the Saito 82 on this plane, and the mount would have to be changed, and there actually would be considerably more cutting to the cowl than I originally could see. So I've...

    Thanks for your input. Sorry for the double posting, I thought the first one didn't make onto the forum. I just didn't go to the second page.

    Can you tell me if the plane should be balanced...

    RE: CMP F4U Corsair 50 Build Log

    I have just completed building this plane and the last item before installing the battery was to check the CG. Wow!! What a surprise. It looks like I'll have to add 2 to 2 1/2 lbs of lead to the...

    Hello Fishunter....I have the E-Flight Extra 260 3d 480 on layaway and hope it's a relatively small step up from the Mini Pulse I've been flying. Is the Extra 260 you flew the same model and if so,...

    RE: E-Flite Mini Pulse XT Owner's Club

    I agree with fliprob, that after flying the Styker, this could be a much more docile plane. I've had my eye on the Stryker for a year, and I don't think I'm ready for 80-100 mph flights. However,...

    RE: E-Flite Mini Pulse XT Owner's Club

    I have used only the 10 x 4.5 SF, because that's what the LHS recommends for the plane, which he also put together for me. I have not tried any other prop, so can't give you a direct comparison. ...

    When I bought my mini Pulse, I had this same idea in mind. And I did run across one other pilot in this forum (I think it was this one) who hand launched it successfully.

    RE: Engine for Funtana X50

    I don't see any way you can avoid cutting into the cowl. Either engine will require it. And, even if you had some stange, miracle engine that fit perfectly, muffer and all, you'd still have to cut...
